Summary: For the price, I would buy for a computer that isn't used for a lot of movies and music, just regular sound stuff. It has a power cord to the speakers, instead of running USB. Not a huge thing, but makes a little difference. MOBO has 8 USB's, don't have that many power connectors laying around the speakers.
Pros: Nice looking speakers; has a head phone jack in the front of the one. Has a power button so you don't have to use the OS or speaker volume to mute it.
Cons: When the volume is turned all the way down, a lot of static comes out. Then IDK if this is the speakers fault or not, but if I had been playing music, being turned down all the way plays the music I was playing in the static. Even if I closed the music player. If I hook up my monitor as the speaker it doesn't do that. So it's really weird!! but I just power it off if I have to. No balance controls, just volume. Seems like one is louder then the other, so a balance con...
Pros: The price is great. There is little chance the less than 9 dollars that I paid delivered could be beat. Decent sound as well for the small foot print. I use the speakers at work when watching those videos that everyone emails.
Cons: The shielding needs to be improved. When I get a phone call or I set my phone on my desk I have to turn off the speakers. This is not an issue, because the power button is very accessible, but I would like to not worry about this every time I sit at my desk.
