They are pretty nice speakers, but not as good as I'd hoped

Summary: I was not impressed at all with these speakers, unfortunately. Due to some of the good reviews, I wanted to give them a chance. I had them hooked to my TV. Bass was virtually non-existent. The speakers put out some pretty good sound, but range is lacking. Sounded rather flat to me. I ended up returning these and purchasing a Vizio soundbar instead. MUCH better choice if planning to upgrade speakers on a TV.
Summary: I've just got this set of speakers today, set up and test my songs right away. It's not loud enough! I have to tune all volumes to max to make it louder...It's hard to believe people's comments here...I bought this base on the comments found here. I can not give this product 5 stars but 3 is enough.
good sound quality for the money. good arrangement for home computer.

Summary: Sound is ok. what u expect. its the awkward arrangement with the cables. good for computer speaker. not versatile for other uses. I was expecting the volume to be in a different cable than the one connecting source and subwoofer. plus it was left in a neighbouring office on a friday, which was closed on a weekend and not where I gave alternative and the notice was not clear. did not even have my name on. sound quality is nice though.
Excerpt: I have not had a good experience with most of the speakers that I have bought. I bought this speaker for my daughter computer, as the sales person recommended that it was the most reliable and best model in the store. Design The shape of the speakers, are nice, the black and chrome finish are very appealing. The subwoofer looks something out of a star wars movie.
Summary: Compared to a PC's speakers a 2.1 setup is always a great addition and a must-have for anyone listening to music, movies, or playing games. Unfortunately these Creative speakers miss a trick or two. There's a pretty loud ported compact subwoofer that does a fairly good job considering the puny speaker it's got strapped underneath the unit. This adds a nice depth of sound and is worthy of 4 stars for it's efforts. Well made and looks nice too, especially for the cash.
Summary: I don't like the way these look, with their soon-to-be-scratched, shiny plastic and profusion of vents. I don't the way the hard, moulded, not quite flush fitting plastics feel, or the flimsy, plasticky materials from which they are made, which are all lightweight, including the downward-firning sub, and inspire no confidence that the sound will be tight enough to go anything near loud.
