Summary: Purchased through Amazon for $40, though I see that they are up to around $55 now. They are certainly a step up in both sound quality and volume to built-in notebook speakers, and I like not having to plug in another bulky ac adapter into my already crowded power strip.
Summary: I like the sound of the speakers, but they vibrate all over the place. Need to find a rubber mat to put under the speakers to settle them down. The search begins! I found simple cloth pads do the trick.
Summary: I am satisfied overall with the sound quality. I like the USB connection, and the good news is that no need for batteries and no power cord! This is a plus when you want to buy a portable speaker set. The speakers have the tendency to bounce and move on my desk.
Summary: So far I've been underwhelmed by the product, but I'm not at all sure it's because of the product or my laptop. After listening to a variety of small portable iPod speakers in the Apple store, I expected a similar result from this unit but did not find that to be true.
Summary: I bought a pair of these at the airport to take on holiday with me. The guy at the store demonstrated them to me and although it took a couple of minutes to install they seemed easy enough to set up and had a decent sound for their size.
Summary: Most of the comments on here seem to be correct. They are neat speakers & sound pretty good. However, I bought these in October 2007 and in January 2009 (after minimal usage) they just stopped working. One minute fine, the next nothing.
Summary: I bought a pair of these wanting something to watch my DVDs through. The sound is ok but not as loud as I'd have liked it. And then after just over a year they stopped working. I didn't even move them around very much.
Summary: These are ok speakers. I would say that if you need some background music (although music deserves better than to be in the background) or if you need to watch a dvd with better quality than the majority of laptop speakers can manage then these will suffice.
