Summary: Purchased Creative GigaWorks T3 2.1 through Amazon as a Christmas present. The power supply failed after three months. Spent $50 to send the system back to Creative. Replacement system also has a failed power supply; it never worked. TERRIBLE Customer Support and cheap, unreliable product.
Summary: This isn't a review about the sound, it's for product quality. The first unit I received was defected and exchanged with Amazon. I have had the new set since December 2010 and the amp is going -- the sound is fading in and out -- it will die soon.
Summary: By K. Wong First of all, if you think that my case is an isolated incident, do a quick search online and you'll see that many other people have this problem. There is nothing wrong with the speakers - pretty nice sound actually.

Summary: The volume control is flawed ! I have bought 3 systems in 3 months and the problem is consistent with all 3 my systems.. The first was for me and the sound was so awesome that I decided to buy 2 more for my kids (19 & 21).
Defective product - common problem with volume fluctuation

Summary: After around one year of using my Gigaworks T3 I noticed that the volume of sound started to fluctuate, this intensified over the time making the listening experience very unpleasant. Following internet investigation I found that this is a very common problem with this speekers.
Faulty product, ineffective and cumbersome process to claim on warranty.

Summary: There's a fault with this product. This began after about three months of use. When playing via TV or iPhone (or any other input) the sound in all speakers stops (ie the system seems to shut down or sleep). When I adjust the volume via the volume control pod, the sounds begins working again.
Summary: I agreed with basically all of the 4 and 5 star reviews: for a time. After less than 2 months of ownership, my Gigaworks T3 has developed a volume fluctuation problem, which I have found out is actually something they are infamous for.
Summary: I have a set of creative 2.1 speakers I acquired in 2002, the creative inspire 2.1, they're old and not that powerful for someone who requires loud and tight bass... however, they still work and they sound good, I wish I could say the same for this speakers... The sub-woofer is perfect!
