Summary: Besides not working when the product arrived (would not power up when plugged into a known good power source), it seemed to be of low quality. I should have known this based upon the price. I returned the product to Amazon and went to a retail store to do a better job of product selection.
Summary: My first 2.1speakers 5 years back was a creative 2.1 whose model doesn't even exist now. Ever since those first creative I have been a big fan of creative even though I bought a lot of other 2.1s. So after getting a cyber acoustics recently I wanted to try this creative. I opened the box and set it up and I hear distorted noise and no music. looked like it missed a quality test or something very basic. Crappy quality.
Summary: I Have bought this speakers in May 2011. And in Jan 2012 its sub woofer is gone. The Bass is gone. I am not able to even play basic songs on the speaker. The sound quality was good when i bought this product. I am great fan of creative till now I have own almost 4 products from creative. But this product has really disappointed me. And the volume level also got too bad. I used to use this speakers for basic song listing everyday for almost 10 to 15 mins.
Summary: I will never purchase or use a "CREATIVE LABS" product ever! Got a T3130 2.1 speaker system through Amazon.com. Operated fine for a week before it took a dump. The stringent return policy means you can never throw away the box and packaging or else you are screwed. The construction was shabby and just plain poor quality which is why it only cost fifty bucks. Never do it again.
Summary: I just got these speakers in the mail today. They came much earlier than I expected. It was really easy to set it up UNTIL I had to plug in one of the speakers to the subwoofer: The pins behind the plug did not match the output. And they were all randomly distributed. SO in my attempts to plug it in, some of the pins got bent. All the time I thought that it must not be that difficult to plug in the subwoofer.
Summary: Do not buy this item at all. Its just waste of money. I just got the item today, I was so eagerly waiting for my speakers to arrive and I was surprised to see that there was no port to connect the speakers to the woofer, it was a defective one. The holder that holds the pin was broken I guess. How can they send a defective one , I don't know what kind of service these people provide. Don't ever buy a Creative product. I have returned this item.
Summary: Customers who are considering buying this item should be aware of the fact that Creative Labs does not sell replacement parts. If the product fails after the warranty period and you need a part, you can't get it from Creative Labs. Quoting from their e-mail: "I'm sorry to inform you that we do not sell spare parts separately. Therefore we are not able to sell a replacement volume control to you. Thank you for your kind understanding.
