nice speakers, nice price, but VERY awkward on/off...
5 July 2008
Summary: I got these speakers originally to use with my little bookshelf stereo in my office since one of its speakers has gone bad. I didn't want to get some new system with multiple little speakers and a big bass box - for my office, two speakers are plenty.
Pros: speakers sound great - and there are only TWO of them; nice price (especially with a rebate)
Cons: on-off switch is in a very very very awkward place on the back of one of the speakers where it is hard to reach; adapter for interface to a "normal" stereo system is not very useful
Excerpt: I purchased these Creative Gigaworks T40 after having a Logitech 2.1 sound system with a subwoofer which created so much bass it made my floor vibrate. This was the reason I needed to purchase some new speakers.
Excerpt: While I was out, looking for speakers, I couldn't help myself getting frustrated with the poor quality of 98% of all speakers I tested. I am used of high quality products since I'm into music and video production, so at least I wanted half decent speakers.
Summary: I bought these speakers 13 months ago and while I have never moved them from where I initally set them up (so no knocks) I'm sending them back for the second time. The top cone on the left speaker was unsecured when I got them first and after a day or two of use it literally collapsed into the main...
A stunning pair of speakers that really does deserve all the praise it gets.

Excerpt: I never used to consider getting a 2.0 speaker system for my PC, mainly because I was under the impression that they could not provide enough bass for my games and I would miss out on my directional speakers with my 5.1s.
Summary: im v pleased with these, both in terms of looks and sound...in answer to others reviews they dont take up more footprint space than other pc speakers, theyre tall though - just 2 units with a very wide sound range and well balanced between the units..
Excerpt: I bought these for my new desk for moving house and not wanting to have my 5.1 any more. They are an excellent set and produce great quality sound. The Bass is a bit fake when extremely high but still overall a great product for the money!
Summary: Most of the other reviewers have given the fine detail on these badboys - so I'll just sum it all up for you: They're big, they're full of bass, they look the business and my god do they sound good. Dont mess about, buy these now. You wont be disappointed!
Summary: Just got these back from amazon yesterday... still running them in I guess, but tried with with accoustic stuff, banging dance & radio 4!... all sounds great.. i've got a top-notch hi-fi in the lounge, which is great & sounds better than these, but you'd hope so for the money...
