Summary: I bought these speakers on June 18th, 2008 and they're still working great as day 1! I specifically wanted USB cable speakers instead of adapters so I don't always have to look for electric outlets. Been worth the 35 bucks I paid for them back then!
Summary: I have tried several speakers for laptops. All had a small, tinny sound. I was skeptical about the reviews of these speakers and had some trepidations when I opened the box. They seemed too small. To my great surprise they well exceeded my expectations.
Summary: I have had the speakers for a few weeks now and they are wonderful. The only thing I would caution people about is that when pressing the buttons to adjust volume, balance or 'mute' there is no -click- audibly and there is no noticeable 'give' to indicate that the button has been adequately pressed.
Summary: I travel frequently, and carry a netbook with me everywhere I go. I hate the sound of the built-in speakers in laptops and netbooks and resorted to listening to music using earphones. However, being tied down with earphones or headphones while relaxing in a hotel room proved to be very inconvenient.
Summary: I have had these speakers about two months and they have worked GREAT consistently from day one. I am running 64Bit Vista O.S on a Toshiba notebook. These speakers are the GREATEST!! I have a close friend who bought these when they first came out and he paid a hundred smackers for them.
Summary: These speakers produce an excellent sound with my Macbook. I have read some of the negative reviews, and have not experienced any of the problems mentioned, such as the speakers not being recognized by the computer.
Summary: I have thousands of songs on my computer and I use it as a stereo just as much as anything else. I was looking for speakers that would amplify the sound when I was in another room and install easily.
