Summary: I have owned Creative speakers in the past, and all have seemed to be better made. They've cheaped out recently. WIth Neweggs RMA policy, you pay for shipping. There goes $20 more for some speakers that hopefully work. Will update when I receive the second pair...
Pros: Look nice
Cons: Upon receiving the speakers and plugging them in, they made a loud clicking sound. The left speaker was inop. They had a slight smell coming from the bass port. I tested the power supply and it was faulty, I did not have a spare to test the speakers as its a cheap Chinese 27v 1.7A power adapter. Dissapointed with Creative's quality thus far.
Summary: This is most probably a case of my socket reaching it's limit (Same circuit as washer), but when I hooked these up when the washing machine was running-it put the cirrcuit over the limit and flipped the breaker. Since then, I have redistributed the power needs for the entire system for safety. I didn't realize I was that close with everything running.
Pros: Good looks-Well built speakers Sound is great-Bass response is good, not over bearing. Most important-Wife is happy~
Pros: Compact, good looking speakers.Well balanced sound, with ample power and very adequate bass for home computer audio. Extremely nice 'heft' and finish.

The 'Egg 'sale' price ended up being not such a good deal, especially after having ...
Pros: Hello "Collin C" who posted his review below mine: If speakers distort at <50% volume, ==> you're overloading their amplified input. GET IT? I admit it's an engineer in me who is irritated by the common folks who buy a piece of technology, abuse it and complain "it didn't last", but fact is - can you even read the specs? What does 28Watt RMS power into 2 channels tell you my friend?, it tells me 14 Watt per channel of root-mean-square sinusoidal power in electrical (n...
Cons: Uneducatd folks annoy me. Also using this opportunity - not just speakers, but in GENERAL - people, when you review & mark it "negative', do NOT review shipping! This is not a place to review UPS, FedEx, USPS or whatever else, if shipping was slow go complain elsehwere, here I only care for a PRODUCT review.
