DO NOT BUY

Summary: Many have said it, but I will, too: Do NOT buy these speakers. They work GREAT for about a year. Then the left one stops working or becomes incredibly quiet. You can either hack into the thing and start replacing capacitors with your soldering iron..

Summary: I got SCREWED! This was used equipment that did not work but it said it was new when I purchased it. This really messed up my son's birthday and I paid for overnight shipping. Total B.S.!!! Never again! See the photo: This was my first time opening it. Nothing was covered wires were out and missing.
Summary: One star amounts for how many months before the speakers malfunctioned. For some odd reason my brand new speakers will not powe on. I only use them to produce music. I have not stressed them in any way I barely played them beyond optimal levels, my landlord lives above me.
Summary: I like the sound of the speakers but the left speaker failed in about 1 year. I called the company and they gave me no sensible option. It is a pity because the speakers sounded good and what is wrong is probably simple and inexpensive to repair. I would not buy these again.
Summary: The power speaker was a problem from day one.....giving an audible feedback noise. I continued using the one none powered speaker that offered pretty fair sound for one speaker...that speaker is no longer producing any sound.
Summary: I read all the reviews and knew I was in for a gamble when I bought these, but I figured the price made it worth it. Even with the two-year warranty at $11 these seemed like a great bang for my buck, so I crossed my fingers and hoped I'd get a good pair.
Summary: While they worked they sounded larger than they look with a big bottom end (just how I like it), lush, flattering and non-specific; basically, a shameless representation of the major qualities that a "studio monitor" strives to avoid.
Summary: Sound quality was great when they worked, but I'm not an audiophile by any means. These were my first "real speakers" after having cheap logitechs throughout high school and college. I did research for about 2 weeks before I decided on these speakers.
Don't waste your money! Here's something way better for a similar price.

Summary: This is the second pair of consumer-grade powered M-Audio desktop monitors I've owned in less than 4 years. The amp inside the first pair died after only 1 year, and the amp inside this pair also died after 3 years.
