Great while they work

Michael B., Newegg
5 November 2009
  • Summary: I have a friend that owns these speakers as well (for about half a year so far). He started having the same problem as I did a year ago. Don't expect these speakes to last.
  • Pros: Some of the best sounding 2.1 speakers I've heard.
  • Cons: About half a year after I got them, they started making stack noise every once in a while. The problem remained for a couple of days and then went away. Then about a year later the problem came back, except worse. Now about 2/3 of the time that I turn them on they have the static problem.

1 works, 1 is broken

Eric M., Newegg
2 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm not sure what could be causing the crackling, but we do have cats, and the cords the speakers some with are fairly... chewable... so maybe it's the cats.
  • Pros: We bought 2 sets and the ones that didn't break work great as the other folks are saying here.
  • Cons: One of the ones that we bought just broke, after about 5 months of fairly mild use, now I'm hearing ugly crackling.

Works but you get what you paid for

Nelson V., Newegg
25 July 2009
  • Summary: Tried these speakers with my Creative X-Fi Xreame card.
  • Pros: While it looks impressive the Creative "Inspire" T3100 does not inspire.
  • Cons: Sound is middle of the road quality with mid level sound coming in muddled and I found I had to set the volume somewhat high just to hear the sound with the sound clearly. I had better sound from my Logitech speakers that cost about 50.00. If you really want to have good sound try something else ...

Weak bass compared to others

Kyung B., Newegg
19 June 2009
  • Summary: I used to buy all my hardware from newegg but no more. Newegg used to have competitive prices and all around policies that catered to customers. They've gone from a great company to a above average.
  • Pros: Looks good. Price
  • Cons: Bass is relatively weak compared to my Altec Lansing ACS33BW I bought from newegg 3 years ago for $30 shipped although these have higher wattage.

Not That Impressive

Cleveland H., Newegg
23 May 2009
  • Summary: These speakers don't sound much better if any better then the ones that came with my HP computer that I bought 6 years ago. They only have the edge with them being able to produce louder sound not better. The sub woofer is nice addition considering what I you pay for this.
  • Pros: Nice sub woofer. Easy to adjust volume. Small in size. Cheap in price. The sub woofer packs quite a punch and is decent.
  • Cons: Well I bought these and I just didn't find them all that appealing. The positive reviews here are basically what made me go with these over any other speakers here. I was very disappointed when I plugged these into my computer. While playing music the sound is not to great and is very distorted e...

Not bad but not great either

Anonymous, Newegg
27 November 2008
  • Summary: I have yet to return these speakers, probably just a defect.
  • Pros: For the price they sound pretty good. Easy set up with separate volume controls for the sub and satellite speakers.
  • Cons: For some reason the right speaker has humming sound coming from it no matter what I plug into the speakers (ie-computer or my iPod). It's not really noticeable if I'm listening to music because I have the volume up but if I have the volume down while surfing the net or something the buzzing noise...

Meh, ok for now

Nick M., Newegg
11 November 2008
  • Summary: Bought these as a temporary replacement to get me through the next few months until I go out and get a new gaming rig. They aren't bad, but are not the greatest either. Using these to replace a labtec LCS-2424 (wish they were still around, they were awesome). Cable layout is decent.
  • Pros: Good bass relative to the size of the woofer. Sound is pretty good when using at lower volume levels.
  • Cons: Testing with some Smashing Pumpkins, and speakers up about 75%, mids are washed away and distorted when bass kicks in. Dang blue LED (at least it isn't very bright).

  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Inexpensive and it sounds that way. The old addage - you get what you pay for - come thru again!

Good but ...

A. Bernard, Amazon
20 February 2008
  • Summary: I just got these to replace my Labtec 2424's, which, sadly, I can't get anymore. The Inspire's are a good solid sounding speaker for the money, but the on/off knob has developed a crackle when you turn it on and sometimes it takes a second for the full range of sound to come trough.

Good but....

  • Summary: Very good value, good sound but the speaker "feet" are a little irritating as they fall off and one has already got lost in transit.
