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.
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.
Summary: I think that the sound quality is nice for the price. My issue with the speakers is that after a few minutes with no sound, they go into standby mode. It then takes a few seconds after sound starts playing for them to wake up again and actually output the sound. Very irritating!
Summary: The speakers appear to be well made, and one sounds just OK. I found the sound "closed" but this is to be expected from speakers this size. But the second one arrived DOA. I have never had a defective powered speaker problem. Although I am sure this is a one-off, I cannot recommend this.
Summary: Other reviewers have noted this, but I just want to emphasize how annoying this "feature" is. These speakers have an auto-off that kicks in after a few minutes. I can't imagine how many pennies of electricity this actually saves, but for those that were really that concerned, might I suggest an...
Summary: The Amazon page for this product show model number: 51MF1615AA002, which is also printed on the box. But the serial number sticker on the box shows: YMMF1616... and the model actually inside the box is an MF1616.
Summary: Right (main) speaker started crackling and then died. Left speaker is still working. Wasn't listening to music at the time. No return emails from Creative. Good speakers while they lasted though.
Summary: So Disappointed. I saw all the positive reviews all over the place for these speakers and thought I would give them a shot at replacing my old Altec Lansing speakers. I plugged them in and UGGhhh! I thought something was wrong. I turned the bass knob and you can barely tell any difference.
Summary: I bought these speakers to replace a ten year old pair of Altec Lansing speakers with a bum volume control. The Creative speakers do not live up to the hype. They are overly tuned for higher range frequencies due to their small size and the sound quality suffers terribly for it.
Summary: i got a good price through an auction but, I'm not impressed with these speakers at all. I would be really disappointed it I paid retail for them. The amplifier is not very powerful, so if you buy them for a laptop through the headphone jack, you'll be more disappointed.
