Summary: I have had Altec Lansing before, but this isn't as good as the last one I had. It quite frankly was weak and didn't have the sound that I wanted to have while sitting at my computer listening to music. I ended up giving it to my son going to college and will be looking for something better.
Summary: This is my 2nd Altec Lansing VS2421. The first set eventually did perish after 7 or 8 years of heavy metal use, so I was happy to find this set available on Amazon. The only problem I have with this unit is that Altec Lansing has discontinued production, which makes no sense to me. On the pro side the sound is clean, and there's an adjustable woofer which is very nice.
Summary: Altec lansing is always a good choice when it comes to speakers. These speakers are loud and clear. The external volume control is awesome. Would definitely recommend these to a gamer or music lover.
Summary: I was completely blown away by the sound of these affordable speakers! I hooked it up to my laptop and got the richest, deepest sound that you could imagine! I HIGHLY recommend these speakers!!
Summary: I liked the idea of the volume thing being on the desk and not mounted on the speaker. The speakers sit a ways away and I thought this was a great idea. BUT... when my computer is booting up these speakers give horrible feedback. Even with volume all the way down. The sound is hollow and the bass is extremely boomy and over powering. Sub volume down to minimum its still very over done. These are junk. I wish I had just stuck with the speakers built into the monitor.
Summary: Quality from these speakers are not extraordinary but serves it's purpose. I have these plugged into my HD to to add some bass to my movies. Mounts very easily, just by a nail or screw ( I've attached pics ). People complain about feedback and humming but though the feedback is present, I only experience it when my cellphone is with a 3feet or so range from the controller or speakers.
Summary: This speaker sound is just awesome they have Bose quality without the Bose price tag. The only drawback is the cables to many of them, but if you can hide the cable or ignore them you won't be disappointed
