Summary: I've had these for a few years now (only because I can't afford a better set) and I have to tell you, the static on them drives me freaking nuts because I play my music quietly and can't cover up the static noise. It's not a "my cell phone is too close" or "my soundcard is bad" sound, although the noise does get exponentially worse if you have a laptop or cellular nearby. But the point is, they almost constantly have some kind of static sound going on.
Summary: I bought these speakers and at first they sounded quite nice. However, within the first two months, an unbearable hiss in the speakers has developed. It is loud and overwhelming, and renders the speakers practically unusable and definitely undesirable. Stay away.
Summary: The Altec Lansing Speakers 'BX2321' are are excellent speakers for computers. Although,if you are purchasing speakers strickly for music enjoyment,which is my case, you may want to consider other brands.The sub woofer does not reproduce the low freq response that I was looking for. In classical music, that is an important feature. Also,the'SFX'sound expansion feature does not have any effect on the music,wether it is turned on or off.
Summary: I cannot begin to explain how frustrating it is to turn on your speakers and have a constant feedback. I recall when I bought these, they claimed that they won't have interference. (actual terminology I don't recall) I have found this to absolutely not be true. I cannot stand the interference any longer and have to buy something different.
Great speaker system -- I'm buying my second one now!

Summary: I bought these speakers because I needed a relatively cheap replacement for my old set, and I've been consistently happy with its sound quality. After two years of use, the volume control knob has picked up an annoying quirk -- there are patches on the knob where the volume jumps to max. I tried to repair it, but it turns out to be quite difficult to take apart safely.
Summary: I'm 50 and bought these about 3 years ago. If your looking for something in the high middle range of the road these will work perfect. I've had no issues with the set at all. Plenty of volume control on these speakers. Bass control is on the woofer. Very easy set up... If there is a complaint, the bass could be a little deeper. Other than that they work great! For the price you pay,on a scale of 1-10 ten being best >>> SOLID 8 all the way. I would buy again...
Summary: These are my favorite desk speakers I've owned. I've had them for a couple years now and haven't regretted my purchase. Their sound quality surpasses their price and I would even dare to say they encroach a bit on Bose territory for desk speakers in the pure "audio quality" department. The sub is surprisingly powerful and the separate volume knob allows you to tailor the bass to suit the kind of floor or carpet you have the sub sitting on.
Summary: I decided to buy it, due to name brand recognition. I decided to love it when I first heard them. Good Lows, mids & highs. It doesn't take up much room, just the typical size for desktop speakers. The sub woofer unit is seperate and can be hidden....since bass is non-directional. I highly recommend this unit. You will not be disappointed.
Summary: These speakers are very nice! I bought them used, but they are still a super addition to my gaming rig. The sub is just great and really gives great rocket explosions! Also, the 2 satellites are very impressive for their size. Yes, they are a bit tippy like some reviews have stated. But I intend to actually screw them to my computer desk, upside down. I doubt anyone will really be bothered by this tippyness.
