Power Saving "Feature" Kills this Great Product
12 June 2015
Summary: I'm a proud supporter of Creative products and thought the audio quality on these speakers were excellent. The power saving "feature" renders them impractical for daily computer use. After 10 minutes of audio inactivity, they will shut off.
Excerpt: I had a pair of old gamer speakers that I wanted to replace on my power graphics system for my work. I have a high end movie system so I know good sound. It has been years since purchasing speakers and the reviews were a huge help. Get these speakers! They are awesome.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Surface Space, Sturdy
Excerpt: quite functional and good speakers. I perhaps expected somewhat better sound quality, but perhaps my expectations were too high. They are certainly very reasonable speaker and there is nothing wrong with them.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Assemble, Good Height
Excerpt: 4/5 because one the female treaded metal insert in one speaker has bad treads preventing to install the screw that holds the base plate. I will have to find the right size tap to be able to install the screw. Sound output is wonderfull.
Summary: Just got these in today! I'm someone that loves music and is picky with sound quality! I replaced m-audio av 40s with theses. Now some people might think I'm crazy to do that as the av40s are known to be excellent speakers. I have the av40s for a few years but was never 100% happy with them.
Summary: Not very happy with these. Bought them in Feb 2014 and here it's July and they're dead so I didn't even get 6 months out of them. I thought Creative was a pretty good brand as far as computer speakers go.
Annoying "Feature" If You Need To Hear Notifications

Summary: While these speakers do produce good sound, many of them have an annoying feature that automatically turns them off after inactivity. They won't reactivate until several seconds of audio has been streamed.
Summary: I had a set of the first generation of these speakers that stayed on always, until you physically turned them off yourself. With a good sound card in my computer they sounded great, not the best, but still great!
