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.
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: 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 replaced an old set of Altec Lansing ACS295 speakers. I think the base was stronger on the ACS295, but adequate on VS2321. I was not looking for full volume music or sound effects. These deliver good reproduction on the nature sounds, jazz, gospel, and classical music CD's I listen to as well as computer or internet generated audio. These Altec Lansing speakers were very reasonably priced. I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend them to like minded buyers.
Don't let the low price fool you---these are good speakers

Summary: I bought these for $19.99 and these speakers should cost way more than that. These are simply the best speakers in the price range--there is no suitable competition. Bear in mind, the Pros/Cons will be compared to more expensive $80-100 range sets. Pros: These speakers produce strong, rich sound. There is ample power for the speakers as it can get loud as you need it to be. The sound is rich, crisp, clear.
Summary: Very crisp clean trebel. Bass is tight and for my ears I need to boost the 30-60Hz range by 3 dB (this is with the subwoffer in the detent midrange position) I use almost no Bass boost on the low end and no high end boost for normal casual listening. For Rock, low and high boost might be considered normal. Classical could be flat but the small bass boost is OK. Great speakers for the $. I am using with a Sound Blaster Audiology card. I am happy with my purchase.
Summary: I just got the Altec Lansing speakers and they sound just fine. I am glad I saved money and got decent speakers for a decent price. As for the wifi "interference", yes, it exists if my router is within about 5 feet of the set. But it disappears completely if I just slide it a couple of feet farther away. No problem with that. I am glad this forum exists, since if I didn't know what was making the noise, I might have sent the speakers back as defective.
Summary: The sound of the satellites is a little bit thin, metallic and hollow. The quality of the treble is pretty good for a cheap system though, and the subwoofer is also good. Beside the tinny quality of the satellites, there's some problems around the lower part of the satellite's range, the crossover region. I'm not sure what the fake-surround does exactly. It can help sometimes, but sometimes it's too much, too weird and phasy-sounding.
