Summary: Just over a year old and they're dying, woofer popping and cutting out, sound's terrible. Were good when they were new now I could make a better sound on a couple of old biscuit tins with a spoon!. Had same thing with other "Creative" speakers, took a chance thinking maybe I got a duff one before, as they did sound good when they worked. Will be staying well clear of creative speakers in future.
Summary: one of the speakers was not working out of the box. now none of the speakers work. had to buy new more powerful speakers from Maplin and make a new sub woofer case with a larger woofer. needless to say it works great now but it does not look like the one in the picture at all.
Summary: When the product arrived the package was slightly damaged and when I got it out of the box I notice that one of the speakers wasn't working. I thought nothing of it at first because I hadn't plugged the sub-woofer's cable in and I thought that it may have needed that to be connected to work. But it didn't, the speaker just plain and simply didn't work.
Summary: - too many cables. - you have to buy an adaptor if you don't have a sound card. - when 3-way adaptor was used, sound came out of only one speaker. - after not long, the subwoofer broke completely and the LED light started flashing in time with a strange bass sound coming from the subwoofer. - the most irritating speakers I've ever bought.
Summary: I've always been a big fan of Creative products and still have a soundblaster live 5.1 card and cambridge soundworks speakers on my PC, must be 16 year old and works with windows 7. I bought these speakers to go with my daughters new PC for Christmas. The subwoofer stopped working on the first set after a few days and a leg was broken on the replacement... Fixed with a 1.5" woodscrew but still disappointing build quality.
Summary: Bought this product several months ago. As I received it, it was evident the product sent to me was either pre-owned, previous return or the box was generally damaged during delivery. I thought nothing of it as the speakers worked a charm with excellent sound quality for about a month. Afterwords, there some minor issues like a random popping within the sub woofer. Then a few weeks down the line suddenly the sound cut completely.
