Summary: I bought these to supplant the rather pathetic mono speaker in a new laptop and have been delighted with their performance. They do not provide Earth-shaking bass, thankfully, though I find that the default treble setting is rather deep but easily adjusted. I use these speakers for general online tasks such as conferencing, listening to radio programmes and watching silly videos on YouTube and for this they are perfectly adequate.
Summary: I thought I had purchased an item from a quality company but they are not as good as the far cheaper ones I had bought them to replace. There is a terrble humming which spoils anything I am listening too especially on the Messenger.
Well worth considering if you wish to watch DVD's and perhaps a little music/game play

Excerpt: These are just speakers, so there's only so much I can say! BACKGROUND INFO: In the past I've opted for cheap £10-20 computer speakers, but due to high use, I accepted I needed to spend more. After a looking around for a while I found these at argos for around £45, even though they look fashionable and cool, I could almost sense the quality involved. I was not disappointed - I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS WHAT SO EVER.
Summary: These are quite compact speakers, so you are not going to get the sort of bass you hear from cars driving round the local shopping centre, making everyone's brain hurt.They are well made, with toned-down looks, and with no distortion when turned up loud.Even the finned, metal power supply is heavy, and tells you this is quality.
Summary: The only problem I have with these speakers is that you can't just use them straight out of the box and expect great sound. I did find the bass a bit useless, but a bit of fiddling about with the settings on Media Player soon sorted that out. For a few minutes fiddling, you get immense sound. Look great, sound great. Can't go wrong.
