Summary: When it has came down to laptop computers, more of them do need a set of speakers specifically designed for their use, especially if you are burning to a CD or DVD for backup, or downloading your favorite movies and music. Phillips have made a good stride with making good products for the computer, These Phillips Notebook USB Speakers really work very well, and deliver a distinctive sound that works great with anything.
Summary: These speakers are good value for your money. The sound is not very sharp but you can't expect everything at this price. I really like these speakers and they are very handy when I watch videos on my laptop.
Summary: If you are like me, a person who uses his laptop alot for music and movies, then these wonderful speakers are just the thing. I have a great computer that goes everywhere with me, and for whatever I may need or want to do. Like most computers the built-in speakers are marginal at best. Wouldn't it be nice to have a small set of speakers, that are powered by your computer, sans needing batteries all of the time, and have a quick set up resulting in a rich full sound?
Summary: These speakers are an amazing deal. The sound quality is superb (maybe not as heavy on the options but it serves my purpose). I'm using it with my Toshiba Satellite laptop (whose built-in speakers are quite low) and am greatly enjoying the experience.
Summary: I build PCs occassionally for myself and friends. I am also an audiophile. These speakers were purchased just to test my PC builds. However, as I was loading software one evening, I decided to test them on a variety of music. Note, they use a speaker plug for the sound signal and a UBS connector for power.
Nice looking but not very loud USB-powered speakers

Summary: I needed an inexpensive set of USB-powered speakers for a particular task and decided to purchase these based on price and appearance. Speakers arrived quickly and in working order. The speakers are nice looking and feel solid. Sound output is a little low but of good quality. All wires are permanently attached and are too long to store inside the built-in cord management cavities.
