Summary: I wouldn't consider my self an audiophile but I do enjoy decent sound without breaking the bank. These speakers do a good job with pretty much anything I throw at them be it gaming, YouTube, movies, or music and I am very happy with the purchase.
Pros: Good 2.1 speakers over all. Light on the volume knob is not overly bright. Bass knob directly under volume knob for quick adjustments.
Cons: A few extra cords to deal with if moves or to cable manage.
Summary: I was looking for a speaker for my dorm room and decided to buy this when it was on sale ($55). I have a much larger speaker at home, but wanted something smaller for the dorm, that would still thump. This product is exactly what I wanted, and it does thump. Even though I live near the end of the hall, the bass could still be heard by the elevator. And that was not even all the way up.
Summary: Bought this very simple (and inexpensive) unit for a friend who can now enjoy internet radio. It performs well enough to sent music around most of the house and the quality is pretty darn good. He's very happy with it. Small foot print too.
Summary: After reading other reviews, it seemed like this sound system would work for my budget. I'm very pleased with the sound I hear from TV programs and movies on DVD/blue ray. The base from the subwoofer is especially richer and deeper than the previous system.
Wowza talk about some bass. I was very hesitant to pick these up,

Summary: Wowza talk about some bass. I was very hesitant to pick these up, you read the specs and your like 6.5 sub with only 40 watts that can't sound that good, but boy was I wrong, When gaming or listening to music you will at times want to turn the bass down. I have always used Logitech for my surround sound setups. This little kit rocks like a more powerful much more expensive kit.
Summary: When I bought them they were $100. Four years and two moves later and they are still going strong. The cable in the back connecting the sub-woofer is a little touchy but once you get it correctly positioned it's fine. Over the years I have noticed when you have the volume turned down very low you lose some sound in the right speaker. Honestly though, if I was listening to music that low (sleeping neighbors...etc.

Summary: I've actually owned this exact same brand of Speakers. After 2.5 years of owning & using the first set I had, it finally stopped working on me Ugh Loved them so much that I ended up just replacing it with a newer version. Also, made sure I bought the Extended Warranty just in case.
