Summary: I decided to purchase these speakers because of the great reviews they received, but was more than a little disappointed when I got them. First of all, it took ages for my computer to recognize them, and when they did, I had to manually set them as the default speakers in the control panel.
Summary: There are some neat things about these speakers. They have a volume control on the front as well as a mute button which I thought was very convenient. Also, unlike so many computer speakers out there, these only require one connection and that's through the USB plug.
Summary: The speakers sound okay, the increase and decrease vol buttons are cheap, they sometimes don't act like it's receiving what you're doing...increasing or decreasing vol. They would have been much better with just a plain Vol control knob.
