Overall, I think these are very good speakers.
They are a medium size for an average desk, standing just over 21 centimeters tall. The sound quality is excellent: it has quite rich bass, and is rarely tinny sounding. I use these to watch DVDs on my laptop, and they are solid performers; the stereo is crisp and well defined. There is also a second 3.5 millimeter input jack which is ideal for quickly connecting temporary devices such as dictaphones or iPods.
However, there are several drawbacks. They are made from glossy black plastic, which is borderline cheap looking. The Sony brand name is printed in grey capital letters on the front of each speaker which is also a little tacky. The volume control is a wheel imbedded in the lower left hand side of the left speaker, which is annoying if you want to place it against a wall or on a book shelf. A remote control, or even a wired volume dongle would have been better.
Considering the price, these are very good value with no-nonsense performance, but a few flourishes missing.
