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: While I read many negative reviews, I concluded that cause was generally unrealistic expectations. I needed better sound than from the onboard laptop speakers. I also wanted something with a small foot print as I use one of my kitchen counters as my "office". Installation was simple.
Summary: boosted the loudness of my computer speakers greatly. the computer speakers are not very loud, but with these speakers, can hear movie, etc. even when others talking in room, etc. good speakers for the price.
Better than laptop and netbook speakers, short USB cable

Summary: My new laptop speakers were no good (are they ever?)because the were aimed straight up and my netbook speakers were on the underside of the device and were literally the size of nickels. I wanted an upgrade in speakers, but nothing elaborate.
Summary: Sound MUCH betetr than my new Toshiba laptop's built-in speakers. My circa 2007 Toshiba laptop sounded pretty good on its own, but with the new one I couldn't even listen to a podcast in the kitchen while cooking.
Pros: Loud enough to fill a small room. USB power and sound - only one cable. Clips on okay or can sit on a table. Works with Linux Mint on my laptop. Better than any cheapo no-name brand speakers I've encountered. Decent price (I got a refurb for even cheaper, and does not look used at all) Good fit a...
Cons: Sound gets distorted quite a bit at high volume. Little bass.
Summary: I bought this speaker to use with my Netbook computer for when I am on my spinning bike or don't want to use headphones. I strap the netbook to the handlebars and clip on the speaker to watch videos while I exercise.
Summary: I purchased this laptop speaker at Target a month ago. So far it is pretty good, small enough to fit in a pocket of a laptop bag and I like how the speakers are pointing directly towards you. There is one negative observation I've made.
Summary: I really enjoy this speaker. The clamp is a good strength, I don't worry about it hurting my laptop screen. However Don't move much as it will fall off with too much movement, which I'd prefer than it breaking my screen because it's holding on too tight.
