Summary: I must say the actual sound quality is better than I expected, but the build quality not so much. In the beginning, this unit was succeptible to startlingly loud static whenever the cables or the unit itself gut bumped.
Summary: These little guys are great for a desktop setting. They are powerful enough for everyday use, games, and music. I wouldn't use these to fill a large room for a party, but are great for your desk.
Summary: I purchased these speakers based on reviews on Amazon. After I got them, I plugged them into my older computer and was rather unimpressed. When I upgraded to a newer computer (1 year ago), with a better sound card, these speakers simply came alive!
Summary: Not the best speakers, but they are very decent in sound quality. The only con is that the bass level is behind the bass and not in the remote control. But both satellites broke before reaching a year.
Summary: The main reason I got these were that they were powered. I got a new laptop whose sound card or sound jack is, for some reason, very low-powered, so my old speakers weren't getting the volume I needed. These ones solved the problem: I get good mids and highs with these.
