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 love the price; great bang for the buck! They sound good, very crisp high end but the low end is a little boomy. Sounds great at high volume and it has plenty of power for a bedroom setup. I reviewed many PC speakers before buying and I landed on these for the price and power.
Summary: Easily installed and excellent sound. The main problem I've had with other speakers is a humming or buzzing sound, but none with these speakers. I've bought several items from Overstock and have been pleased with all of the products thus far.
Summary: I gave only 3-stars for ease of installation because there is basically no installation instructions. It would have been nice to have received an instruction manual pointing out that the plug that goes into the computer can also be used to connect your MP3 player directly to the speakers.
Summary: I've been a loyal customer of Altec Speakers for decades. I normally wouldn't buy a product like this online. Due to Altec's reputation I decided to do so and wasn't disappointed. My office area is 11' x 11' and the speakers/subwoofer resonate the area appropriately.
Summary: I bought this set for the office. After trying them out at home, I'll keep them for the house. They have very good sound quality, and easy to install. My speakers would buzz with my iPhone 3GS around, these don't buzz at all. Great value !
Summary: For the price of these altec lansing speakers, they're very good quality. The bass and treble are excellent for playing hip hop & r&b music! Only thing is when you play rock music, the sound does not sound that good, but other than that, I don't regret buying them. Good price, good deal!
