Summary: If you can get your hands on these speakers, you will not be disappointed! The bass on these is incredible and there is no distortion on even the songs that are bass heavy. Highly recommend and I wish Altec Lansing would stop making inferior follow ups to these amazing speakers!
Summary: I had before a computer speaker system but it's only 2.0 (also from Altec Lansing) which I'm not satisfied of what I'm hearing even-though it sounds very very good but it misses something. And I step-up with this one (VS4121) and I had this one for a couple of weeks now and tuning it and I would say, "WOW THAT'S IT, THIS IS THE BEST period end of the story".
Summary: iv had these speakers for over a year and they still hit hard and nice, i use them for movies, gaming, and of course music. with the right eq these babys can sing. im thinking about getting another pair do expand my system. have them set up in a 6.2 surround sound configuration with some logitec.. and they dont sound anywhere near as good as my Altec's. good day people... also, if you are a bass fanatic, these are the speakers for you.
Summary: My great-uncle built his vacation home in 2007 and he had his VS4121's no later than 2008. These are by far the best desktop speakers I've ever heard. After hearing them for the first time, I was hooked. The highs are very detailed and have no distortion from what I've heard. The mids are phenominal, as they really do fill the space they occupy quite well, whether turned up or at a low comfortable volume. The bass is breathtaking.
Summary: This my 1st review I have ever written and I want to spread the word!Bought these on 5/4/10.I was hesitant about buying speakers that I could not hear in person. But, I have to tell you these are unbelievable. Altec Lansing VS4121BLK. They will blow your mind as the volume is increased no distortion at all. The sub-woofer is fantastic. They sound better than my Sony 5.1 surround sound system. In reading reviews about these speakers the goodins outweigh the bad ones.
Summary: This unit has a rich sound and great bass. The treble and bass buttons make great adjustments to some sound videos that may be too much treble or bass. The woofer has good power and this is a great value for the money.
