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. The sound control also has a headphone jack, so you don't have to plug headphones into the pack of you computer.
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! I actually found myself listening to my music collection just to re-experience them.
BETTER THAN EXPECTED-EXCELLENT WHEN SET UP IS RIGHT

Summary: I've read several reviews of this Z3 speaker set in different forums and most of them were putting them down as insufficient in sound, output and overall tone. I could test about a dozen in a shop and, Z3, in comparison to Altec and Creative, sounded a bit flat but the sound was linear neutral and clean. I also compared Z3 to Z4; the heights from Z3 sounded better, Z4 had almost no mids, despite the 3 speakers in the satellites and the bass was too weak.
Summary: These look nice (better than the other Z3s with fake wood grain stickers), particularly the aluminum front piece (though the grills are very attractive, too). Easy to hook up. Convenient headphone jack on the power/volumn remote. Great price.
Summary: These speakers really are as good as 90% of the other reveiws state--irrespective of price. At extrememly low volumes, the bass may be a bit strong, even at its lowest setting (so turn it up!). I just had to write this review because I find incredibly annoying people who give excessively low ratings (one star) when clearly the majority of reviewers have given a top rating (5 stars). Dramatic extremists: please keep to yourselves!
Summary: I got these pc speakers yesterday -- for the price, you just can't beat 'em. I did a lot of shopping around and comparing, and finally settled on these after reading a ton of positive online reviews. My fears were that they would either be 'tinny' sounding (too much high end / treble), or would have too much bass with the sub-woofer. Well, I can tell you that my fears have been replaced with pure joy. These speakers have a better sound than my stereo system.
Summary: I wanted something more than the stock speakers that came with my comp, and I got it. These things got me into dance music so much more, now that I can actually feel the beat. This system is pretty powerful for it's size. I disturb the neigbhors with these things .. granted I live in a town house .. but that's ok! Great buy!
Summary: These are awesome speakers for the price you pay. Two speakers will more than fill the room with sound. They even had enough output for music at parties. The sub can really pound. I would recomend these speakers for students (college). Good Buy.
