MAC users beware

  • Summary: These are nice little speakers. They sound great and fit out of the way.....when they aren't having problems. I bought these for my MAC OS X 10.6.5 and after hooking them up to the firewire 400/800 adapter and then raising the volume slider past 3/4 high the sound was interrupted and was replaced...

  • Conclusion: I bought these speakers based on reviews I read on other sites. Unfortunately after 13 months (1-year warranty has expired) all I get are continuous popping noises, whether powered by firewire or an optional power adapter.

  • Summary: These speakers are not worth your money. I had three problems with these speakers. 1. Connecting these speakers via Firewire made the fans on my black MacBook run continuously at a high velocity. Very annoying and loud as well. 2.

  • Summary: This product gave only headaches. First time I used on Windows XP, I was misleaded about the type of Firwire port I needed. So I had to buy also a power source for it.

LaCie problems all over again

Catweasel, Amazon
26 May 2008
  • Summary: In my experience with LaCie over the past 10 years, with external hard drives and monitors, product support and quality are virtually non existent. I bought these speakers under the illusion that nothing could possibly go wrong - how wrong I was.

Neat but over stated

Mr. D. Knowles "Denis Knowles", Amazon
16 March 2008
  • Summary: I purchased these for my Apple Mac Leopard desk top. They sit well either side of the screen and the connection for iPod is useful. However, the claim of 90-20K cycles is fanciful. Whilst the sound is crisp, particularly in the high register, the bass is almost non existent.

Horrible sound

Anders Ojgaard, Amazon

  • Summary: I do not understand where the good reviews of these speakers are coming from. I will walk you through my experience: Plugged them in with some trouble. Cables are extremely short, so you have to put your PC cabinet right next to them or go out and buy an extension cord.
