Summary: First off, the speakers are quite good for their size. I can't complain about the sound. The bass was pretty impressive. I enjoy that the speakers come with a built in 4-port USB hub. The fact that the speakers are attached as one unit has its plusses and minuses. There's no way this thing will fit in my laptop bag, but I don't get a tangle of cables. It's also a little big to be really portable.
Summary: Speakers generally require size to sound impressive, so it is difficult for a manufacturer to build a notebook speaker system that excels in all categories: detail, soundstage, clear highs, stirring lows and wide stereo separation. Therefore, I approached these speakers with somewhat low expectations. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the speakers' ability to reproduce clear midrange and highs and to provide good detail in complex musical passages.
Summary: Its a well built external one piece speaker for your laptop with a great sound , but and a big but. only buy if your hooking it up to a laptop running xp or vista, as win7 os has to find drivers for it, which are not fully compatible and ends up with the speakers sounding crackly, other than that these speakers have a mega sound sound and with the built in subwoofer you get all the low end bass you could want from a all in one speaker of this size and convinience
