Summary: The speakers are fantastic, and the sound quality is better than I hoped for, but the cords are not that great. They worked fine for the first couple of weeks, but now the speakers only play when you put the cords in a certain position. Its really quite annoying, it can take up to 15 minutes to get sound to came out of all the speakers. But overall, I think they were worth the money.
Heads up- designed for devices that actually have surround sound

Summary: These speakers are for devices with surround sound. Shocking, I know. Turns out, for example, my Mac doesn't. You can still play your iPod or whatever on them (hint... it's the green wire), but not all the speakers will work. There are workarounds to that, but none of them produce genuine surround sound, just more speakers playing your music / movie / game. So if you're mildly technologically illiterate (who new a brand new Mac doesn't have surround sound capabilities?
Summary: I had purchase this product before and it serves it's purpose, but I notice the adapter that came with the previous system allowed me to hook up my red and white audio plugs, but this recently purchase system did not. Also, I have to jiggle the wires to make some of the speakers works.
Summary: The speakers work great, but I wish they had more input options instead of just 1 active source. Having to switch between sources is a little combersome, but again the speakers sound great. At the price paid, it was a real bargain.
Summary: when i get the speakers, i notice that the speaker have 3 plugs and my computer and my tv have only one...after a few days checking on ebay i found a plug to connect one to the tv/computer and the the plugs to the speakers. was disappointing to need to buy other thing to connet my speakers, in fact i bought other attachment that wasn't work at all, maybe in the description they have to say that if you don't have a 5.1 audio card you going to need this external plug to...
Summary: One speaker went defective. The yellow output speaker wire also went defective. Even with these deficiencies, the speakers still performed well. I purchased this sound system a while ago, costing me 80 USD. If certain parts did not go defective, definitely I would have given a 5 star. I gave 3 stars because even though the speakers are falling apart, performance is ok with rich sound.
