Summary: I got these because they were cheap and well reviewed, and I needed some good music for get togethers at my apartment. I listen casually with these - mainly cleaning the kitchen etc. but for small parties (<60 ppl) these are actually great. I'd rank sound reproduction as a 7-8.
Summary: I just got these speakers in the mail today and because I only paid $35 for these guys, I wasn't expecting much. They had gotten pretty good reviews, but come on.....$35 bucks, how good could they be. "HOLY COW!!!" I can't believe what I"m hearing.

Summary: The subwoofer gives perfect sound for all forms of classic rock enthusiasts and all walks of life. Altec is definitely the king of fair priced sound systems everywhere. Altec is much better than Logitech, that's definite. JBL is a whole different story, it may be better, but costs much more.
Nice speaker set, especially considering the price

Summary: I was considering these speakers, along with similar sets by Logitech and Cyber Acoustics, all of which were well-rated and on the first 2 pages of most-popular items. The CA set was/is the #1 most popular in the category, but they just don't look very nice to me, and I've never owned any of their...
Summary: Purchased these on Black Friday for 20 bucks. Sound quality is really exceptional, especially with their small footprint. Loud, punchy, tight bass. Subwoofer hits deep notes with ease, and handles lots of different genres of music very well.

Summary: The setup is relatively easy and can be plugged straight into a wall outlet, no computer required. And then the 3.5mm jack allows one to plug directly into an ipod, mp3 player, laptop, pc, etc.
Summary: Altec Lansing VS2621 3-Piece Computer Speaker System delivers a really good sound quality without blowing your budget. The size is compact enough to fit smaller tables or shelves. The subwoofer gives good bass for it's size (13 Watts).
