Summary: It does the job. It has decent quality, you can easily notice that it's not HQ, but it does what it should for a portable speaker bar. The USB Power cable is fragile. It seems to have a breaking point within 3 months for most people, me included.

Summary: These speakers have great sound. The power source is through the USB cord as is the feed of sound in the other direction, so only one short cord connects laptop and speaker. That this clips on to the edge of the laptop screen makes using the speaker so easy. Brilliant!
Summary: We all know how lame laptop computer speakers are, this corrects that. No, you won't be getting a BOSE experience, but they sound pretty darned good for what they are. If you want large sound, buy LARGE speakers, this is what you do for decent sound if you need portable.
Summary: Okay, but nothing fantastic. Seems to specifically hit mid range only, no significant highs and (obviously) no bass. Almost sounds a little "boxy" if you're familiar with component speakers playing without any tweeters. These in no way will compete with desktop speakers, but that should be assumed.
Summary: I purchased this speaker for my lap top since my built in speakers no longer work. This lap top mostly stays in my room and rarely gets moved. After about 7 months the wire connecting the speaker to the computer started to fail.
Summary: I gave it 5 stars because it was exactly what I was looking for. We don't currently have a TV and so we watch movies via iTunes, or TV rebroadcast via Hulu. While I love my Mac Book Pro, the speakers don't cut it for our movies or TV sessions.
