I Really Wanted to Like These Speakers
4 July 2011
Summary: I bought these to go with my new desktop. They are a good size for pc speakers, and I liked the fact that they have both treble and bass tone controls and that they are angled upwards. The speakers arrived in good physical condition, with the protective plastic film still in place on the rears. But I returned them for two reasons. Out of the box, the left speaker would cut in and out as I adjusted the volume control.
Summary: Two things I'd like to point out in this review. First, my refurbished T20 speakers were in brand-new condition with the exception of the product box having been open. The speakers still had the protective covering on them, and no evidence of prior use. A+ value! Basically half off for like new product. Second, the speakers themselves. Based on the "regular" price of close to $100, I think my expectations were high and I'm slightly disappointed.
Caveat Emptor -- Deceptive Product Description on Amazon.com

Summary: I already have a pair of these speakers that I use with an LCD TV. They're great speakers. I was excited to find them on Amazon.com for under five sawbucks -- I needed a new set of speakers for my kids' computer. However, although the product description on Amazon.com's web page as of late July 2010 doesn't mention it, and although the description of the item says "CONDITION: NEW" when you put this item in your cart, these are not new speakers. They are refurbished.
Summary: Hi, I'm satisfied with the purchase except: I believed the hype. The idea that these are $200 speakers marked down to whatever is ludicrous. They are a very nice set of speakers, $30 would be a sale and a deal, $50 is a little too much, I BELIEVED THE PICTURES!..., what an idiot... they're nowhere near 4 feet tall.
Summary: I got these for $50. They sound ok, but lose quality early on when raising the volume. The bass sounds good at low volume, but not good at all when loud. For $50 is not a bad buy, if you like to keep it low.
Summary: I bought these because they were on offer, and I couldn't face the day, (hopefully that will never come) when my Gigaworks T20's gave up, as they get plenty of welly and they are brill. I tried these side by, switching over from my original T20's and back. I can honestly say the new ones sound like a cheaper speaker than the originals. They may look a bit better, but the inferior sound, more cardboard boxy, specially the midtones.
Summary: I bought these speakers on some recommendations from Amazon previous buyers of the older T20 series I. Thinking the Series II would be as good if not better. I was very happy with these speakers, the sound from it is brilliant. I'm not into 2.1 setup or the full 7.1 setup that my computer can handle, simply because my daughter will just mess up the wires anyway. I simply wanted a good solid set of speakers that will sit nicely next to my monitor.
