Summary: The little guys sound good to be what they are. They are great for a computer but probably would not handle anything much more. On the bottom of them they have a wire "channel" that weaves where the wire is supposed to fit. Really poor design. Why they didn't just shoot it straight out the back is beyond me. Seems like it would have been much simpler as the wires do not stay in this channel so they aren't perfectly flat.
Summary: I got these for under $50. I don't remember how much they cost at the time, but I replaced my existing 5.1 system with these and while I hate creative's software, they make a great set of speakers.
It just doesn't works as 5.1 with my Dell Studio XPS 1645

Summary: I bought it to get 5.1 like sound system, but just later I did know that an USB sound card would be necessary to put all in the job. Anyway, the quality as a simple sound speaker looks great and I intended to buy the "missing part".
