Summary: Speakers were great until, the subwoofer started to suddenly turn itself off every now and then. First we thought we'll live with it, since it would start working again ones you turn the main switch on the woofer off and turn it back on, and it would work fine. but the it got worst and the rate of it abruptly turning off increased to every couple of hours. and now it doesn't work at all.
Summary: Update: I did buy the logitech 5300 and although it was OK it did not compare to the Creative so I have now purchased my 3rd progamer 500. Hopefully this one will last longer (it has been 3 months so far). I have upgraded my rating to 3 stars because without question this system has the best sound. I just wish it would last longer. I really like the sound from the Creative Pro Gamer 500 system.
Summary: Nice set of speakers and good features, but a big annoyance is there .... which is: the VERY VERY short speakers cables!! Yes, they are short to the extent that you should NEVER expect that you will take the toy out of the box and start enjoying! Instead, you should expect some effort to be done first to seek some electronic technician help to create a special extension for the supplied cables!!! Big shame!!
