Summary: If you simply want to replace computer speakers because the originals broke, then these are very good. There are speakers on the market for double or triple the price that play better music, If you want them for high quality loud music, then pay more for the other speakers, but I you want good quality and plenty of volume for normal computer and internet use, then these are fine. If they break I will by the same again.
First pair I bought were terrible, better the second time around.

Summary: So I purchased these speakers for my PC as I moved my Logitech surround system to my living room for my TV set (great idea by the way. get a nice set of PC speakers and some adapters and you can have a great sound system for a fraction of the price of a legitimate surround system). Got them in about 2 days (A++ shipping as always with Prime) plugged them in, sounded pretty terrible. Was thinking "whatever they were cheap".
Summary: My brother keeps stealing this from my room! Perfect sound quality and a fair price. The chords are really long so you can tuck them behind furniture and space them out in a room/patio/ wherever. Definitely recommend these. TO everyone including my brother.......go buy your own!
Summary: They do the job but they sound like 15-20 year old speakers. Weak bass and they just don't sound high quality. Spend the extra 10-20 bucks and get much better sounding speakers. Plus they're really huge for the weak sound they put out.
Summary: bought these to replaced my very small antec speakers. these dont sound too bad as most reviews stated which is why i chose these over other styles/brands this price range. they wont sound as good as more expensive speakers or a home audio system but for light use they are perfect.
