Summary: These are the best sounding computer speakers I have ever had! The bass is all there, powerful - not wimpy. I'm glad I bought them! In my experience (going all the way back to the Altec microphones we had at KWLC radio when I was an announcer there in the 1960's), Altec is a very good name in audio...
Summary: I really liked them, but they only lasted about a year with gentle use. All of a sudden, the right speaker is dead, and the left speaker and subwoofer only emit a VERY VERY LOUD buzzing sound.
Summary: I bought these speakers not long ago in a sale. Normal price is much higher but I could get it new for around 35 dollars. I wanted something that is not too expensive but still gives good quailty. I knew Altec from before, I had a similar one at home in France that I could not bring to the US.
Summary: Wow! OK, these speakers are downright awesome for their size, wattage, and price! I have a pro-audio contracting background and researched for a month or so before buying - I got the right ones, baby! 1.
Summary: The sound is really great, much better than the Creatives I had before this. I would highly recommend these speakers to anyone looking for a 2.1 system. The sound is better than anything else I've ever heard that cost less than $400. Seriously, these are a fantastic value.
Summary: I had previously bought a similar sized pair of Altec-Lansing speakers and sub woofer when I went away to college 10 years ago. Over time I ended up creating a short in the woofer connection because I placed my feet on it under my desk.
Summary: The speakers themselves are a little tall for me but I guess I was used to short ones anyway. Also there's a big bright blue LED light on the primary speaker that wont go off unless you turn off the speakers. I didn't see why that was so necessary to have it so big and bright.
Summary: Pros: Nice looking, good quality construction, easy to set up. Cons: Poor sound quality, subwoofer distorts and pops even with low levels of bass. (no this is not at excessive volume) Satellites were ok, but lacked a fullness of sound.
Summary: A pretty good computer speaker system for the price. Another good use for speaker systems of this size is to hook them up to your cable or satellite receiver box and use them to hear the audio feed from your TV service provider.Trust me, the sound will be much better than the speakers installed by...
