Best Computer Speakers I've Ever Owned

Pros: I knew I'd fall in love with these speakers the second I go them out of the box. They were bigger than I expected and the power adapter looks very much like a laptop's. So, no wall wort and really good sound. Setup was what you'd expect. Speakers sound great. Overall, super happy with my purchase
Cons: If I were to quibble with it, it'd be that they we're somewhat expensive and are a bit too tall. I have them behind my monitors that are on an arm and and about 4 inches of them are covered by the monitors. Not a huge issue and didn't impact sound at all.
Summary: I have the T40s and the T20s. Both very nice. The clarity, realism and presence of instruments and voices is impressive. Subwoofer systems will have lower bass but I don't miss it. Superb computer and television speakers. Solid knobs should go the distance without shorts developing. T40s are best. T20s are nice too!
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. I wanted something that took up less space and had a wider sound stage.
Pros: I bought these to use with my laptop computer. They provide full crisp sound. They fill my entire apartment and I have not turned them past 50% due to bothering the neighbors. The speakers seem well made and are beautiful to look at.
Summary: You absolutely will not regret getting this product. I luckily bought this while it was $80 off! Even if it was full price , It is still worth every penny. Definitely get what you pay for.
Pros: The beauty, the shine, the pristine look of these is beautiful beyond belief! The speakers, they called to me. Begging me to put them together with such ease. The sound , oh the sound. It's so sublime. I cried tears of joy as my ears listened to the most alluring sounds I've ever heard.
Cons: Putting a cons section for these speakers is blasphemy!
Pros: These really exceeded my expectations. Based on the pictures I thought these were going to be on the smaller side, but they're surprisingly large and heavy. The sound is really clear mated with my Sound Blaster Z.
Summary: Prices for T40's have stayed relatively constant these last 5-7 years. Paid roughly $120 for the first set and just paid $114 for this new set of T40's
Pros: I have a 5+ year old set of Creative T40 Gigaworks speakers purchased from Newegg which have performed perfectly to this day. When my son's hand me down pc finally died (Asus P6T motherboard finally picked up an annoying quirk of trashing it's o/s) and thru a process of swapping out parts we determined the old set of vintage Pentium 4 speakers would not output listenable sounds. Decided to spend the extra bucks to a identical set of Creative T40's. Newest set of T40's...
Cons: Newegg once again provides free shipping however it's "egg saver" versus standard UPS delivery. I hate egg-saver delivery simply because it takes over a week for delivery and this is a order coming just across the Hudson river in NJ. Broke my heart paying the extra $3 just to get UPS delivery versus egg-saver delivery....needed them in a hurry this time otherwise I would relent on egg-saver free delivery.
