Summary: I've been using these T3030's for about 3 years now. They have worked well and I haven't had any problems with them. The wired volume and bass control is very nice. What I find slightly disappointing is the sound quality. To me, they just don't sound very good. Not terrible, but not really that good either. I think they sound better for watching movies or video than for music.
Summary: I was happy with these speakers until the on off volume control core was damaged and there is no way to fix it or get another, so I have to throw these expensive speakers in the trash because only the cord needs repaired. I have emailed the company and they say they can't provide replacement cords. Basically they didn't give a crap. Don't buy these or any other Creative Lab Speaker!
Summary: I am a senior in high school and big into technical theatre, specifically sound. I consider myself something of an audiophile. I received these speakers as a gift a few years ago, before I knew anything about audio. I loved them then and I love them now. First of all, the sound quality is excellent. I have a Dell laptop and listen to quite a bit of music (alot of alternative and grunge, mostly).
Summary: I read a lot of reviews on a lot of 2.1, 3.1 and 4.1 systems before going with this T3030 for many reasons, but one being extremely important: I live in Caracas, Venezuela. So there's no turning back, no warranty. I bought these on Dec-13 and got them today (Jan-24) so you get the picture. I'm extremely happy (as a pig in s#1t) with this set of speakers. The sound is just awesome for such a cheap system.
Summary: This is the third system I have bought made by Creative and this is the first time I am dissapointed in their product. In short, it is OK at low levels but should you try to turn it up even just a little, the sound goes out of sync. It becomes painfully boomy and uncontrollable. I had to almost turn off the base using an equalizer. I wouldn't recommend this particular product.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews that liked the Creative Inspire T3030. Amazing speakers for the price. I didn't go with five stars because my daughter has different speakers that cost a little more (like $20.00) that have a significantly better sound.
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase of this speaker system. I use it for my computer. The ease of increasing or decreasing bass and volume is a plus. The sound is the best I have heard from speakers designed for use with a computer.
