Summary: these are terrible speakers i made a mistake in buying them. They should be 10 dollar speakers dont' make the same mistake i did get better speakers and pay a little more or at least don't buy these ones.
Pros: -looks nice -usb connect
Cons: -speaker rattles at loud volume -speakers go from mute to very high with nothing in between - very short wire
Summary: Quality must have gone down, these used to be pretty good, now not so much.
Pros: I had a set of these that lasted years, until the cords developed breaks and they no longer worked.
Cons: The replacement set rattle and sound like a blown speaker, in less than a month! An RMA from Newegg is not wroth the cost and hassle, totally frustrating and make me not like newegg for anything that *might* need a replacement.
Summary: Should have research a little more before buying. Great idea, horrible product. Cost to RMA w/shipping is more than half of what I paid for them, so its not even worth returning! Don't waste your money on these!!!
Pros: USB powered
Cons: They have absolutely no volume control! Either muted or full volume! Found many complaints online about this problem, seems to be a driver issue with Windows 7.
Summary: While these are decent USB speakers, they have several bugs that make them junk: (1) volume control doesn't work under Windows 7--they are either off or loud (regardless of software volume control settings); (2) randomly, Windows 7 won't recognize the device and then won't play through them.
Cons: I plugged the speakers in, turned on an audio book, speakers couldn't handle the default volume... They fried in about 10 seconds. They never turned back on after that. Contacted newegg, and it will cost me more to return them than they are worth...
Summary: I purchased these speakers because I wanted something inexpensive to use on my PC. I don't listen to a lot of music or watch movies on my PC so I wasn't very concerned with sound quality. Still these speakers are a huge disappointment.
Compact, easy install, usb powered, VOLUME ALWAYS MAX!!!

Summary: I will try to make this review as detailed as possible so other users do not fall into the mistake I did. At my office, we are not provided with pc speakers. I like to hear my incoming mail notification, hence I decided to buy a pair of cheap speakers.
