Summary: My primary use for these speakers is at work, my radio broke and considering most of the stations I listen to stream online I figured why not just use my laptop and find myself a decent set of speakers.
Decent. My expectations were not high, and they still not met.

Summary: I'm really torn between giving these 3 stars or 4. If I could rate 3.5, I would. But the fact the wire that connects each speaker to the other can be unplugged is what tipped the scale up to 4 stars.
Summary: These are amazing sounding speakers, but like many others the remote was DOA. I didn't bother returning it since it is connected to my laptop anyways and I just use the software based volume control. Don't buy this product for a controller! haha
Summary: Great speakers! Delivering crispy clear sound within (amazingly!) deep bass! I wouldn't call 'em exactly 'surround sound' like, but pretty close to that notion. Remote control (bit bigger than a cigarette lighter) and USB hook-up are a huge plus.
Summary: Great Speakers with great sound quality. I want to manually change the sound, but I cant. I either have to use the remote (which I must say is nice) or use my sound volume on the computer. It is very sleek not to be able to change the sound on the speaker itself, but not very convenient.
Summary: I have a MacBook Pro and wanted some speakers for when I an at my home desk. These speakers were on sale and I decided to give them a try. I have been very pleased with the sound quality and the look. The volume doesn't go quite as loud as I sometimes like, but it sufficiently fills the room.
Summary: I purchased these speakers because they were the first experiment in being able to have sound for DVD presentations at a small Rotary Club meeting (+/- 50 people). The USB connection was the key because a separate amplifier would just add to the cumbersome load to transport.
Summary: I picked these up to replace a set of portable speakers. The big price drop was the main reason for giving these a try. Good stuff: Sound quality is more than acceptable for a limited area for any application, except for the more discriminating audiophile or gamer.
Summary: I just needed basic speakers, and these definitly fit the job. It was a great bargain for $30 shipped, and would recommend it to anyone for that price range. Compared to other speakers at that price range, they have a crisper, clearer sound and also comes with a remote.
Summary: Are these going to blow out windows? No. But considering they're USB powered only, exceptionally clean looking and have very nice expanded stereo sound they are excellent! I have a set for my home office; paid $100 last year and they were worth it; at $30 they're a steal.
