The speakers come packaged well, seem well made and not likely to break and are quite easy to set up. Despite a few teething problems I had them set up within half an hour, and the problems were with my PC not the speakers themselves. Build quality is one of the main things I like about these speakers, at such a low price they will last a long time as they are very reliable. Sound quality is good, I have no problem with them. Sometimes I do feel that they aren't loud enough, but this isn't a large problem and it is only when there is background noise. The speakers are a great addition for someone who isn't too picky about sound quality and volume, and are just looking for some simple cheap speakers for their PC. The speakers are also a compact size, so you won't need a lot of space to use them.
