Summary: if you listen to country or watch movies online than this system will be a GREAT bargain; however, if you listen to rap than the sub is not going to make you super happy. i have to turn the bass down when i listen to some good rap songs or else the sub distorts a bit. the rap still sounds really good, but i find that i keep wishing that i could turn the bass up higher while listening to heavy rap songs.
Summary: These speakers are very good for the $20 I payed for them. I have always been happy with Creative products- I also own a Zen Vision: M. The bass can get a little thumpy, but it provides crisp sound.
Summary: These speakers have a great sound and I liked them for the 5 months they worked. However, I expect products to last longer than this so I was surprised when one of the speakers stopped producing sound. Got an RMA and sent them back to Creative Labs. Am waiting to see if they honor the warranty. UPDATE--I sent them in to be fixed and got another pair from Creative Labs that work flawlessly. My original speakers must have been unusual.
Summary: It's pretty much what you'd expect. Only I had a Cambridge 2.1 Speaker set before that ranged in the same price range and was also labelled Creative which had more depth, the cables seemed to be not as flimsy and no blue LED was staring at me (it really is pretty bright in a dark room...). But still the best I could find at this time for that price.
Best in this price range, even with the Blue beacon

Summary: I bought these about a week ago from a local retailer for $20 after rebates. I was not expecting much at this price, but they have a very nice clean crisp sound with plenty of bass and lots of detail on the highs. At first I did not like the sound until I realized I was just used to the muddy flat sound of my old Altec Lansings, now I know these are much closer to the intended sound.
Summary: If you have decent computer speakers, but not enough base for music, then this speaker system will solve your problem. The stereo speakers aren't anything to write home about, but the subwoofer completes the deal. The overall sound is good. The system is small so it fits anywhere. I expect the same thing could be said about a number of systems so look for a good deal.
Summary: So at first I thought the sound was ok. Nothing special. Infact I even thought it was kinda crappy and the levels were way off compared to the speaker i upgraded from. I dated someone in Post audio production, so I was used to hearing exactly what the sound is supposed to sound like. Well.
