Summary: I have an audiophile grade home theatre system, $5K+. Does this set sound as good as that? No! give me a break! Does the sub hit the lowest lows? Nope! Do I feel like I'm at the symphony? Not really. Am I happy with my purchase? Yes!
Pros: Everything worked out of the box. Good, clean sound. Bass is OK. It's not thundering (it's 4", what are you expecting?). The volume knob is outstanding. Really makes the speaker system.
Cons: Left speaker is a little droppy. If the speaker is pointed any lower than 30*, it falls down to 0*. Not a big deal since 30* is about perfect. Right speaker does not have this issue.
Summary: With anything, your mileage may vary on all of this. I am a Newegg Premier member which may have been a factor in everything Newegg did for me. Check your fine print, as your terms could be different.
Pros: They look great and the price was great. Sound was great in the speaker that worked. Newegg's handling of everything.
Cons: I'm one of those people who have had insanely good luck with refurbished gear, from tablets to notebooks to TVs. Never a bum item in the bunch. My streak, however, ended with this speaker set. I originally ordered a set in November and it worked for a few minutes before the right speaker stopped....
Summary: I would have returned these if I had paid full retail price for them based on the sound quality. However, the refurbished price is well worth it. Newegg got them to me overnight even with the free shipping option.
Pros: These speakers sound great once their set up with the right equalizer balances. My neighbors will hate me soon. They look awesome and are absolutely worth the $40 I paid for them.
Cons: They sound like crud out of the box and took quite a bit of balancing to get them to sound right.
Summary: The bass on this thing is awsome!! and the overall sound is good as well. I love the cylinder shape of the subwoffer its different from the regular square shape that you normally see with these systems and this was the main reason why i bought this product.
Don't even bother with these. Not enough power, and low quality.

Summary: I have bought 2 sets of these. Got the first, returned it for a replacement and had the same issues. Garbage speakers. Made out of cheap plastic with an odd color scheme, trying to fit into a niche aesthetic. Plus, 140 dollars for 40w? Get out of here. The component assembly is horrible.
Summary: First of all. I am an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) fan. My music is all about untz untz untz... and more untz. I bought the Bose Companion 2 Series III from BestBuy and Z553 on amazon. I compared both products side by side. Bose didn't "wow" me.

Summary: This speaker set ROCKS! Wall mountable! Sounds beautiful, especially when properly set up to resonate in the room. I love the Red accented colors, these speakers were MADE for people like me! only complaint is that the speaker cables are a bit short for mounting.
