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.

Summary: I am very satisfied with these speakers with only 40 bucks. I don't know what it is like for 200$ speakers but these speakers has clear sound and nice bass, which worth 100$ for me. This is my best value purchase ever.
