Summary: I have never been much of an audiophile...close and play was fine for me in the 1970s, and when I bought my first Diskman, I thought that was the best sound I had ever heard...without extra speakers, amps, sub woofers, etc. I use the computer's sound for a limited universe of needs: -Error messages and the like -Speaker phone -listening to conference calls/webinars -watching news reports -YouTube videos (!
Summary: Technologically, I fall somewhere below your average everyday idiot. I have a rotary telephone, broke the last dishwasher I touched, and am famous for messing up the television sets at the houses of friends. A cable box, a DVD player, a VCR, a DVR (I think that's what they are called), a TV... and all those remotes??? Who can cope? Anyway, I was able to hook up these speakers right out of the box with no instructions.

Summary: While these may work OK for sitting a foot or two from the front of a laptop they will not fill a room with clear and full sound. They do look nice but the left one has more weight because of the power being housed in it. The right one should be weighted the same so they behave the same on a table. The lighter of the two falls over easier because it is too light. The cable between them should be double or triple the length too.
Summary: I hooked these to my laptop to have better sound for listening to music than the built in speaker. They work very well for that use and are a great value for the price. I'm sure there are more expensive units that give bigger/deeper sound, but for what I needed - this is a major leap forward over the built in speaker, at a very small price tag.
Remember: you get what you pay for, but this is great for general use

Summary: MY father always told me that you get what you pay for and these speakers fall into that category. They are definately economical and great value for students and kids to have speakers for their computers for computer games or general skype use. However, for people who listens to a lot of music then the bass is a little 'tin-like' for certain music genre.
Summary: The V7 2.0 Performance PC Speakers are great for a laptop or desktop system where stereophonic sound is not so important. For the price, you would be hard-pressed to find better. I loved the controls and the response of the speaker itself when using them for MP3's, movies, gaming and the like is fine. You won't get very impressive bass levels out of these particular speakers.
Summary: My daughter uses these speakers with her iPod, and is very happy with them. They are better than internal laptop speakers and are effective amplifiers. They are certainly not the best quality speakers out there, but are good for the price. The sound is clear but loses the bass, and distortion increases rapidly at high volumes. The location of the controls, on top of one of the units, is convenient.
Not even your average speakers - poor bass, treble ok

Summary: These speakers are a better alternative to internal laptop speakers and would be fine for amplifying sound such as a speaking voice, however for music, they just don't cut the mustard. I don't like the black fabric cover that acts as a dust magnet on these speakers. They are lightweight, tall and slim, yet the bass in music songs is relatively absent and while the treble is OK, it does not sufficiently deliver either.
