Summary: After going to the trouble of going to the local wally store and standing in line 20 min. I got home and plugged them in. The first time I've had a Logi-tech product fail but one of the speakers didn't work. When I get back to the Wally store to return them I won't buy another set.
Summary: I am very pleased with these speakers. I needed to replace a similar set that no longer worked properly. The old ones had 2 cords - one USB and one 3.5 MM plug. On my Dell laptop the 3.5 plug is right where I use my mouse. So I was thrilled to find some that only use the USB - which is located farther back and out of my way. These little speakers did not disappoint. They have a very good sound and are perfect for my needs - not to mention the great price!
Summary: I needed to get a sound card for my husband's pc that he uses mainly for web surfing and email as his videos wouldn't open etc due to no sound. He kept borrowing my USB head phones as they were all that worked. These speakers were the perfect find. The USB plug in makes them small on the desk, decent sound (at least as good as on board) and no drivers or sound card to buy. Worked out great and another nice touch is no plug in needed since they are powered by USB also.
