Summary: every now and again, the speakers will strart to buzz for a few seconds and then stop. Other than that, they work pretty well. Unfortunately I have a imac, so I do not get the whole surround sound effect. I can get so three out of the five speakers work, plus the subwoofer. Still trying to find an external soundcard that will work for my imac and speakers.
Summary: I bought these 5.1 speakers as an upgrade for my old 2.1 Cambridge Soundworks PCWorks speakers. However, I am disappointed with the sound quality. Compared to the PCWorks, the P5800's trebles aren't as bright, the bass isn't as strong, and the volume in general isn't as loud at the maximum. True, the P5800 has 6 speakers vs. the PCWorks' 3, and it has convenient features such as a headphone jack that the PCWorks lacks.
