Great, yet 'eco' friendly <--not in a good way

Summary: Regardless of my issue, for the price, quality of the sound, and portability. It's a great purchase.
Pros: These things sound great for the limited power and size of the drivers. The quality of the sound was very pleasing(even the bass-port puts out a good enough sound), and the price tag even more so. Not to mention they look very sleek even with a gloss finish (I prefer matte).
Cons: The bad... Some have said they had a 'stand by' mode after a short period of no input that takes a bit too long to kick back on, I have yet to experience this. However, I have been getting an ANNOYING problem where the sound will lower on it's own resulting in me having to pause/play a youtube vi...
Pros: Mids and treble frequencies are very good, especially mids. Build quality is very solid, can't speak for the cabling yet. Pretty small footprint for a desk, but they are pretty tall. They look great. Headphone and aux ports on the front are nice to have. Headphone port double as a ghetto headphon...
Cons: They struggle to reproduce some very low frequency bass tones (<40Hz). Can't reach a significant volume level without distortion in the bass, but for a fairly small bedroom they are clear and loud enough. Even so, the quality of the bass outdoes a lot of 2.1 systems.
Pros: Compact, good looking speakers.Well balanced sound, with ample power and very adequate bass for home computer audio. Extremely nice 'heft' and finish.
Cons: Please accept my apology for deducting one egg, and for this somewhat unrelated gripe, but I feel shoppers should be aware of the Egg's lame returns policy: NE initially shipped me a damaged set of DOA speakers that looked like someone else's return, then charged me 11 bucks to return and exchang...
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...
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 PRO...
Summary: As I said I am spoiled by real good adio & my music taste is very Heavy + Esoteric. From Dimmu Borgir to Medieval chants, it's not easy to reproduce on cheap speakers. Not to be unexpected from a EE Engineer. NO spell check - sorry for typos, busy, typing in darkness
Pros: My 2nd pair (1st original from 3 years ago, left at former job/coworker). For the price, they're a bargain given good performance vs. physical volume. Physics dictates a minimum volume of cavity to emit audiowaves of certain frequencies, and CreativeT20's are excellent, all if not "too much" is i...
Cons: No Cons for an average person, not exposed to high-end stuff; and don't dare to complain for their price - a mircale manufactured with this reasonable audio/sound. But since I am SPOILED, & my music taste, education/tech background isn't average, an elitist could blast these as junk :) if they fo...
Summary: After I purchased the T20's for $66.99 w/ free shipping from NG, I found the Bose Companion 2 (last years model Series II Silver grill) @ BJ's for $79.99 this week. I must admit, I like the sound better from the Bose myself. More neutral sounding. Cleaner overall.
Pros: Sturdy. Easy set-up. Front panel inputs (Power/Bass/Treble/AUX & Headphone) T20 can get fairly loud overall. Price. Seems like decent build quality. Good for above average gaming sound.
Cons: Even after adjusting the bass within my Asus Xonar DS sound card menu, it's simply too much for my tastes when playing music.
Pros: They are OK, not the greatest sound but if you want something better than laptop or monitor speakers then these are great as a replacement. MUCH better than low-end speakers but they crackle at higher volume and just seem lacking. Not great for gaming or quality sound but they work and serve thei...
Cons: Cracking sounds and distortion at higher volume
Summary: I decided to migrate from a 2.1 system to a 2.0 system to gain the extra real estate on the ground where the sub was located. If I had to do it over again, I would probably research systems with small footprint subs and good ratings. Not disappointed with my purchase.
Pros: Sound quality is great. Bass and treble controls allow for more than adequate adjustment of sound. These speakers are pretty loud. They look great.
Cons: I switched to these from a 2.1 system. You can tell the subwoofer isn't there, but overall sound is still great. Unless your PC is a main music source that requires the extra bass of a sub, these are great.
Pros: I replaced a very old set of 5.1 Altec Lansing speakers that just took up to much space. Theses were Win 95 era speakers.....Anyway, they sound is amazing, plenty of highs, lows and sub. All from 2 speakers.
Cons: OK, here it goes, the bad and I'm stretching it....the knows could be textured instead of smooth so it's easier to adjust the settings.
Pros: Sweet and clean sound. If you are into acoustic and such, this pair of little speakers will bring a smile to your face. Not super bass'ey but in a 2.0 speaker WTH you can't expect so very much. IMO great value for the $ if you don't need a thumping bass
Cons: Not much, just be sure you want what these speakers are good at and not what they aint...
