Advantages: Stylish appearance, good standard sound levels
Disadvantages: Loud sound performance. Amount of wires
I received this P.C speaker set one year as a Christmas gift. The product is a 2.1 sound system. The 2.1 indicates that there are two "satellite" speakers which are in layman's terms simply the speakers and the .1 indicates a sub woofer is included. With this sort of budget speaker set it is vital to have a subwoofer as you receive no bass from the satellite speakers. I instantly loved the appearance of the speakers, with there glowing bright blue stands and the accompanying blue light on the subwoofer system. The sound quality is very good for the price tag up to a certain point. Listening at standard levels then the speakers perform very well but once you reach the higher levels of sound, the bass becomes crackly and overpowers the speaker sound and there is also some general crackling, especially if the volume control is altered slightly. This problem can be reduced, when turning up the general volume, if you turn down the bass level slightly then there is a more balanced sound. Even with correct bass levels at the highest volume these speakers aren't really THAT loud and are insufficient for party levels of sound and if you really want a full on music experience. If connected to a P.C then there are a lot of wires to be catered for and it can be a bit hectic getting them connected up and then if you move the speakers at any point, prepare to become confused as to what goes where.
Overall: Very good quality for the price but if you're looking for high clarity sound at high decibel levels then spend that extra bit more for speakers more capable of producing louder, crisper sounds.
Summary: Good budget speaker system but spend a bit more for a lot better system
