Summary: The 1 star reviewers seems to be in need of an audiologist and a subscription to Mechanics Illustrated. Who whines about plugging in a USB, RCA, 3.5 mini, or power cord. Perhaps an English man servant is needed. I bought my set used for under 3 bills. I returned the 2 other brand names after comparing all 3 over a 2 day period. Both other sets were 3.5 bills. Creative was the clear winner. I've had no problems with operation of either Bluetooth or 3.5 mini.
Very good, clear sound - but not a great value at $400

Summary: I've been using these for a few months now, and overall I've been very happy with them. There were some things to work out in the beginning to get them to work with my computer, and I had to adjust to using the buttons on the control pod (they are contoured to the surface and right next to each other, so it's easy for me to push the wrong one) - but after getting past those issues, I really like them.
Summary: I bought these speakers to get away from the completely worthless internal speaker(s?) in my home PC LED monitor. The only requirement was that the speakers have some sort of digital connection option, because I hate the buzz of an analog cable. When nothing is playing I don't want to hear ANYTHING from my speakers. I started out using the Creative ZiiSound T6 with the included Bluetooth USB dongle.
Summary: So in a speaker system like this, you've got two things to look at: the functionality and flexibility of them, and the sound quality. In th case of the ZiiSound, they land in two different places. For functionality, this gets five stars. It's very easy to set up: the speakers and control pod plug into the sub, the sub plugs into the wall.
Summary: This has very decent sound, and amazing enough i really like the pod controller, I didn't think I would but I use it a lot. One bad thing is I always forget to shut it off, has one tiny light to say its powered on. While the blue tooth piece was easy to use in both my mac and PC, I don't like that it has to have the little chip plugged in to use it.
Summary: With music on so many devices, it was imperative that the sound system in our living room be able to connect via bluetooth and plug into our tv. We had this set-up quickly, everything we needed to do so (cables and what not) were included. As soon as we turned it on, we were impressed by the quality of the sound, the speakers are small but powerful!
Summary: I was given these speakers to evaluate as part of my participation in Amazon's Vine program. Although these speakers were given for review, there is no mandate as to how many stars they are given and my review is without pressure or bias. That said, this is my fourth speaker set through Vine and they were well recieved. Creative launched the ZiiSound T6 in November 2010.
Fantastic Sound - Dizzying Array of Connection Options

Summary: The Creative ZiiSound 2.1 speaker system sounds fantastic and has an incredible array of connections possible. With any speaker system sound is always a matter of personal preference and taste, if speakers sound good to you, they are good speakers. It's always difficult to describe speakers so that somebody can make a good choice for their purposes. The next part to sound is what the speaker looks like and how easy it is to use. And finally cost comes into play.
Reasonably good sound, lots of wires for bluetooth speakers

Summary: The ZiiSound 2.1 system came in a tightly packed and rather heavy package. After unpacking I found lots of cables, a remote, the speakers, subwoofer and a knob. After hooking everything up and getting my iPhone linked to the speakers over bluetooth I tried out a variety of songs that I am used to listening to and found that these speakers actually sounded pretty good. The other cool thing was being able to control everything from my iPhone and play it back as well.
