Summary: I don't have much to compare these speakers to other than the terrible 2.0 speakers that were hand-me-downs that came with my old computer around 2004. This is partially because these speakers have lasted me so long and I haven't had a need to replace them.
Summary: I bought two of these speaker systems for use with two different computers. I am impressed with the quality of sound for the price. However, one of the two systems just died. It lasted thirty months but now it's totally dead. The other is still working well.
Summary: The speakers sounded absolutely great. As long as they worked. Within a month of purchase, the speakers died. The capacitors on the power supply board inside the amplifier had melted or leaked out for some reason...
Summary: I use these in a touch screen jukebox I built. The sound fills the entire basement. Probably not the ideal use, I'm sure they would sound even better on a bookshelf instead of inside a wooden box, but no complaints.
Summary: I have a had Boston Acoustics PC speakers before....and for their size they were pretty impressive. So, when I bought my new Mac Pro, I decided to give the Horizon series a try. Setup was pretty generic and straight forward...no surprises there. But when I hit them with my first iTunes song...
Summary: Great sounding system! I got a great deal ($59.99 w/ FREE shipping) and love this unit as a computer system. Crystal clear sound and perfect bass response. Unit does have a problem with interference (coming from your cellphone if nearby), though I just remember to never leave my cellphone near it.
Summary: I'm just going to add to the already stellar reviews here. My fiance has the Logitech Z-2300 2.1 speakers, and I have these. Let me compare the two. The Logitechs are definitely much louder, and have much more bass. The sub is about twice as big as the MM226.
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with my purchase I made about 3 months ago. These replaced my 2.1 speaker set that came with my Dell that I should have replaced years ago. All ranges of sound are excellent. I would buy these again.
Summary: These speakers have been running close to a month now and they sound better than they did right out of the box which was already great sounding. The satellites and the sub work seamlessly together providing clear highs and well behaved bass(adjustable).
