Advantages: Robust, sound fine to me
Disadvantages: Could be more user firendly in terms of design
I have had these speakers for around five years now, purchasing them when I upgraded my PC. You can certainly buy much better speakers for your money nowdays but I have not yet felt the need to upgrade them (though I am not much of a sound enthusiast as some people are).
The set is the usual two speakers and one large bass speaker. One of the smaller speakers has the volume, bass and power controls and is connected to the other by a single wire, this speaker then connects to the audio sockets on your computer with a wire and via another wire to the bass unit (which then has the main power wire going to it. The wires seem to ample for the usual desk-based set up, though the power cable could be longer to reach the bass unit if you have it on top of your desk. You can also plug your headphones into the main small speaker (via a standard socket) which automatically turns of the speakers and re-routes the signal to your headphones.
The sound quality is fine to my rather un-demanding ears but I suppose could be improved upon by modern sets. One downside is that I am forever knocking over the smaller speakers that sit on the desk as they are rather top heavy, with small bases and tend to get caught by the curtains and other objects. The unit has been transported numerous times as I have moved house during my student years and has not suffered from being packed up and jolted around. All in all I rate this unit as a good initial investment that has lasted well and whilst I will probably replace them at some point in the nearish future I can honestly say I am very satisfied with them.
Summary: A totally fine set of speakers for everyday use
