Summary: For the price, these can't be beat. I had a Creative Cambridge 510d that let me down after a few years of faithful service. I WILL be repairing them, the sound was the best I have ever heard in a computer speaker scenario. It is hard comparing these, because these are sub-100 dollar speakers, the others were 500.00 speakers. But they do ok, very efficient and fairly clear sounding.
Summary: Not bad for a 5.1 system priced at $75.98. However, I price matched it for $51.70 at the time I bought it. The people who can benefit from it will be the ones having a good sound card otherwise I think it will not sound that good. I have a problem with the centre speaker since it needs to be kept vertically and it blocks the view of my monitor so I have to put it horizontally.
Summary: got this because of the price. sounds awesome. when paired with a good sound card, sounds so epic and awesome. Gaming with this is also nice.although i would of liked to see a wireless remote, but doesn't bother me too much.
