Conclusion: On their own, the T40 are a solid set of computer speakers that won’t eat up too much space on your desk. Of course, you can pay $400 USD for Bose’s tiny Computer MusicMonitors, but the T40 are far more budget-friendly.
Pros: Easy access to volume controls; small footprint; compatible with Creative's X-Fi iPod dock
Cons: Sound tends to be shrill; no subwoofer output; rear power switch
Conclusion: The Creative T40 speakers provide the most audiophile-like experience we have heard on a budget speaker system. The sound is neutral and not exaggerated like most of the PC speakers we have heard.
Conclusion: I think that this kit might not be the best choice for the 150$ it cost.

Summary: The Gigaworks T40 speakers are a great product. Creative has managed to produce some great quality audio for a very affordable price. As with most of Creative's range, they probably won't appeal to true audiophiles, but for everyday use they excel.

Cons: Treble can be slightly overshadowed, the very lowest frequencies aren't as well represented as they would be with a dedicated subwoofer

Excerpt: This Creative piece has been around for few months now, and we've finally gotten our hands on these flagship new speakers. A high-end 2.0 system, these speakers are something that we at Tech2 itch to blast on high volume.
Conclusion: High-impact sounds from games such as Unreal Tournament 3 faired a little better than DVDs, as long as we kept the volume under control -- upping the volume made the speakers work too hard.
Pros: May be too tall for some tastes, Rear power switch and overly bright power light mar an otherwise slick design, No option to add subwoofer
Cons: Stylish mini-tallboy PC speaker with high-quality dual midrange drivers, Easy access to volume, treble, and bass controls, Headphone jack, Provisions for optional iPod dock
