Summary: As soon as I received these speakers they went directly into the kitchen. Now those recipes that were in video format could be heard over the hustle and bustle. These speakers are great, and sound terrific.
Summary: I think many reviewers already mentioned: great Apple-like design, portability, decent sound and firewire connection(one less USB cable clutter). I will mention other noticeables. The bass is pretty weak but at current 8W output with no subwoofer, how can you complain?
Summary: The first thing you notice about these little speakers is their beautiful design. They look as though they were designed to sit by my Apple laptop. (Sorry, I'm a fan-boy.) They get their signal from the Firewire port and not the headphone jack. My one criticism is with the cable itself.
The first FireWire Speakers EVER, and the LAST you will ever need!

Summary: The LaCie FireWire Speakers deserve all of the hype that they have received. Just visit [...] and you will see the over 10 awards that these first-ever bus-powered FireWire Speakers have received. Personally, I think they are amazing!
Summary: As advertised, they look great were easy to set up with my mac mini. The sound is pretty damm good to. Bass and treble sound was pretty impressive for the size. If you don't want to deal with a power source which I didn't these are the ones for you.
This are very well designed, really nice to look at!

Summary: Gorgeous set of white speakers with a brilliant sound and fantastic design. The finish is gloss white, with deep black centres, this version from Lacie is powered and connected solely by Firewire, conveniently using a mostly underused socket.
Summary: I have tried out the LaCie speakers in a G5 iMac, a Duo Intel 2.8MHz iMac and two Windows XP PCs. In all computers the sound quality was excellent. Piano music was well defined and the bass impressive bearing in mind the relative low cost and the size of the units.
