Worked for a while

Summary: I wish manufacturers put more time in to making a product that lasts. These speakers had never fallen and were never knocked over, I barely ever took them above 50% volume due to the distortion, and they stop working shortly after the warranty expires. This will be the last set of creative speakers I buy.
Pros: Pretty good, crisp sound.
Cons: Not able to get very loud without distorting audio, stopped working slightly after the warranty ran out.
Summary: Will RMA and give it another shot, it seems like they would do what I need them to... if they both worked.
Pros: The right speaker sounds excellent
Cons: Unfortunately the left one is DOA. Verified by hooking headphones up to the jack on the right speaker, both channels came through fine in the headphones. Nothing on left either from PC or phone through AUX port.
Great quality speakers with a big butt (bigger than a Kardashian)

Summary: I'm really impressed with the sound on these. I would give them 5 stars except for one thing - the speakers go onto standby after a few minutes of no sound. To wake them up you simply play some music but it takes about 3 seconds for them to come back on and you miss the first three seconds of your chosen track. That matters to me. Ok, it's an EU directive but try to be a bit more 'creative' guys and have the sound come on instantly.
Good speakers but they go into standby and lose first 3 seconds audio

Summary: These speakers go into standby after 10-15 minutes of no sound input, and take about 3 seconds to auto-recover when input occurs. That means you do not hear short sounds like system chimes, and when you start to play a song, you miss the start of it. My old T20s did not do this; it is apparently an EU recommendation. I would not buy them again even though the sound quality is good, because there appears to be no way to disable this irritating "feature".
Summary: The units received had a fault and had to be returned. I had seen other peoples reviews saying they also had similar problems but assumed because these were "Series II" the problems described would have been sorted. The fault was of a temporary nature and when they worked correctly sounded great. I have had a portable ipod player manufactured by Creative for many years and has been with me on many holiday destinations and has always given good service.
Summary: Everything about these speakers is great - except that they make funny noises both when in use and when idle, which is very distracting. The noises sound like a loose connection or interference. Since my PC set up has not changed and I have not had this problem with previous speakers, the speakers must be to blame. I suspect that the price is just too good to be true and there is poor workmanship or electrical connection finishing going on somewhere here.
Summary: Looking forward to these speakers for hook up to my TV - All worked well until I had to unplug them I replaced the mains wire and not known to me the male fitting pushed through and snapped the female end rendering the speakers unusable-The company replaced the speaker system and 2 months later the huge mains power plug is not working. Two tries at these speakers and I wont be buying ceative speaker systems again.
Summary: Hemsk bas, förjävligt mellanregister och ingen klarhet. Precis som guos89 skriver, köp ett 2.1 system istället. Dom här har en tendens att börja "dåna" pga storleken på dom små rackarna. Som lättare kökshögtalare på mellanvolym kan dom nog funka, men det är inget att ha om man vill vrida upp decibelen.
