Summary: This is a great option for powerful, low cost external speakers (I picked these up for $15). I was looking for something to add to my desktop machine to listen to lectures and youtube videos. You can really jack up the volume and it comes through clearly without distortion. The main reason I purchased this was the USB power plug.
Excerpt: For the price these wee no frills speakers are exactly what I needed. My daughter couldn't hear her ABRSM backing track above her own violin, these speakers do the job perfectly. Very pleased with them.
Excerpt: Wanted speakers for the kitchen television which had poor sound and low volume. Check the web site & reviews, these speakers had very good reviews and were good value.These were very easy to install and a great improvement in volume and sound quality (25% on these are = to 100% without). Great buy should have got them before.
