Summary: Ive had mine at least 5 years and would def buy again. I dont even remember if they were new or refurbished when i bought them. One of my cables is on the fritz or the input jack Not sure which.I thought they were broke and was really upset but got them working. They do have a heavy braided cable so they have taken the beating of being moved and jostled around about 15 times minimum maybe more from home to office and everywhere n between They just keep on going.
Summary: I bought this set from Target on clearance for $50.00, and did not realize how good they would be. The sound quality is amazing, and I am currently looking into buying another set for the RV/Garage in the future. Too bad JBL doesnt manufacture these anymore....
Summary: These are exceptional, durable speakers. I have had mine since 2007. Fantastic sound! Seeing as these were discontinued, I decided to look at the Marketplace's current prices for new/used items. I am shocked. I paid $99.99 in 2007 for new ones. Had I known that they were going to be this amazing I would have paid $199. But I am seeing some for sale here for $300+. That seems a little crazy for 5 year old technology.
Summary: I got these JBL Spots, and I couldn't decide if I wanted these or the bluetooth versions available for my macbook pro. There's plenty of cord, and the cords are in excellent manufacture. I hide the bass under the desk, and put the other spots on the desktop and they are simply wonderful.
Best sounding speakers I ever heard for under a $100.

Summary: Without a doubt the most brilliant and enveloping sound I've heard from PC speakers for under a hundred dollars (I got it used) and I would readily recommend it to those who enjoy there music and like tiny speakers with powerful sound (big sub-woofer though, comparatively). Nothing to detailed about this review because there is no need for me, I enjoy it enough and have no qualms that cause me to be picky.
Summary: The sound from this is amazing, found it priced wrong at a store, and bought three and kept one and gave two away, one friend is using it on TV has 42 inch LCD, and this is his surround sound system, and it works and sounds perfect, and so tiny. I use it for bedroom, laptop, itunes... sound is again unbelieveable Only one issue, and others said this, on/off switch is in really weird spot, backside between all plugs, so I just leave it on, and now shut off power surge bar...
Summary: after my JBL creature I died (the darth vader version) i was searching for something just as powerful and visually relaxed and i couldn't have found a better product than the JBL spot. if you're looking for something to fill a room with sound look no further.
Summary: Wow i was looking for some speakers for my room and i want some powerfull but not too big and not expensive, well i really want to buy razer mako but too expensive,and i really impressive with the size and the sound of these speakers i lov'em.
Summary: I was in the market for new computer speakers to match my Apple Cinema Display and white/silver desktop theme of my Mac setup. I came across these speakers in a Mac forum and was taken with their simple but fresh look. I found these speakers new on Ebay for $60 and promptly bought them. I also currently own the Creature II speakers by JBL. They are essentially the previous version of JBL computer speakers before the Spot's were released.
Summary: THESE ARE GREAT SPEAKERS AND FOR THEIR SIZE PRODUCE GREAT SOUND. I JUST HOOKED THEM UP TO MY NEW iMAC AND THE STYLISH LOOK AND GREAT SOUND GOES HAND IN HAND. THEY WON"T SHAKE YOUR HOUSE BUT ITS PERFECT FOR A COMPUTER. IF YOU WANT LOUDER SPEAKERS THEN GET A HOME THEATER SYSTEM. I WOULD SUGGEST THESE TO ANYONE...
