Summary: I purchased this item for my son to use in his dorm. It turns out that the speaker is set up to be used outside the U.S. and requires an adapter for use in the states. This was not disclosed previous to purchase however DirectDeals4U would not issue a refund as requested. Neither would Amazon since it was past the 14 days.
Summary: I cannot understand how the other reviews rate this product so highly. The only good thing going for it is that it is cheap and it minimises cable management compared to a full 2.1 system. The sound is tinny and as soon as you put the volume up it distorts the sound terribly. Even at low volume the sound is far from clear. Absolutely awful, would not recommend at all.
