Summary: Yes these are good quality speakers with a great sound at the price. But, good speakers aren't that hard to buy, and where these fall down is on usability: 1. The system doesn't come with a UK mains plug!!! This is totally unacceptable, and if I had bought this item in a shop it would have gone straight back for that alone. Not being very technical, it was with great trepidation that I connected it using the adaptor I have for the electric toothbrush - and that worked.
Summary: There are a couple of problems I've had with this item that would keep me from recommending it. For a start, it does indeed comes with a two-pin plus as other reviewers have mentioned, so if you haven't got one already you'll need to buy an adapter. That's probably not too much hassle for most people, but the fact the product is sold in a state that most people couldn't use it right out of the box annoys me a little.
Not as good as the one it was supposed to replace.......

Summary: I already had a Creative 2.1 set-up purchased over 10 years ago, and loved it for it's dinky square mids and the no fuss cube sub, it had a huge transformer and for it's size a respectable frequency output. I listen to a lot of Old School Hip Hop and Breakbeat on my PC, and the old Creative 2.1 was good for that. Saw this new one for a fair price, and as it had taller desk speakers thought I'd get it.
