Summary: This system sounds great, plenty loud for what I use it for....mostly music on the PC and youtube. I would give it 5 stars except the volume knob/wheel is hard at get to to change volume when it spikes on some videos. My old cheaper system also had a tone knob, which this doesn't. But the sound with the subwoofer is great, and the 2 desktop speakers are clear and strong.
Pros: These speakers have a really good sound for the price, the bass is strong and undistorted while the mids and highs are clear. These do hold their sound even when played quite loud.
Cons: Poor build quality, the volume control is very small and fiddly, and the audio jack produced too much distortion to be worth using. The connector plug that powers the speakers and takes the input from the 3.5mm jack broke off within a year.
Summary: I actually bought this item from BestBuy, but I'm looking for a new speaker system right now (to upgrade from this) and I figured I'd write a review of this for any other people who need a cheap, 2.1 system. Let me start out this way, for the price tag, these do much more than you think they would...
Summary: I purchase this product for my computer, but additionally found it perfect for my video's audio system. I't just the right size to move from room to room. Good Quality at a great price. Thank's Overstock, you've done it again!
