Summary: I originally purchased a pair of the Bose Companion 2 speakers for my computer. After about about a half hour of listening I wasn't happy with the sound quality. The bass was horrible. I returned them and got the Phillips 2.1 system.
Summary: There was no manual or even a quick start guide included with our speakers. I'm totally ignorant about hooking stuff like this up but my son finally figured it out, (we had to buy a split RCA cord). Sounds pretty good, much better than our Samsung LCD speakers.
Summary: Our TV-watching room has a high ceiling but is on the small side square-footage-wise, and frankly, it wasn't worth it to me to invest in an expensive home theater system - the room's design is nice as it is and we didn't want to clunk it up any further.
Summary: I BOUGHT THESE FOR MY DAUGHTERS ROOM, I DIDNT THINK THEY WOULD WORK AS WELL AS THEY DO. EVEN THOUGH WE ONLY RECIEVED 3 SPEAKERS, (WE DIDN'T GET THE THIRD SHORT FLAT ONE IN THE FRONT) BUT THE SOUND IS SO AMAZING AND CLEAR, WERE HAPPY ANYWAY. (I EVEN TRADED HER FOR MY COMPUTER SPEAKERS) ...LOL...
Summary: The first set of speakers I ordered, the right output did not work. Sent back, received my refund, and contacted the seller and personally spoke to the owner of the company. Ordered another set and they work flawlessly. Very easy to set up, great sound quality.
Summary: Before I got this I had to transfer stuff from the computer to my home theater system to get good sound. As I am a music freak, this unit saves me a lot of time. The down side is that I now spend more time than ever at the computer! Using this with the computer gives you equalizer control.
Summary: I was looking for a 2.1 speaker system because my bedroom isnt that big, it probably measures 11' by 12' . I recently bought a New 42" Vizio TV and wanted better sound that just the tv speakers.... 5.1 speakers would be too much for my room.
Summary: I have purchased two of these systems. It sounds so good that I had to share with a family member. It does not charge the IPOD, but I accept that with the great price, connect-and-play, and such GREAT range (highs and lows).
Summary: I have used one of these Philips speaker sets on a Samsung plasma computer monitor with a TV built in for more than a year. I bought a second one recently to install on my computer when the existing unit expired. Both perform flawlessly.
