I purchased these a few years ago from Comet at the tiny price of 25 pounds, the white version which is exactly the same one as pictured above but in the colour of white!
The Look of this product is generally quite nice, they are quite big and clunky compared to others but they do have a very smooth design, its about the size of your hand to your elbow and about as thick as your hand, the white colour does look very cheap and easily gets dirty but its also easy to clean and give a wipe, the dials can be hidden under a flap at the bottom, they have the volume dial which also turns it on and off, the bass dial and treble dial. They have a little electric blue light which fits in well with the white, overall a sleek and nice design but the white colour is quite a cheap plastic but its still very hard and tough and will probably last a long time!
*Ease of use*
The speakers were easily plugged into the speaker jack, and had a really long cable between them so they could have a lot of space between them so you can keep a lot of room between the two speakers making a surround sound effect.
They are so loud, the speaker quality is amazing for the price and they are always well heard, the bass is amazing on them and you can adjust it so high you can feel it through the floor or adjust it lower if you don't want too but even at the lowest the speakers are still very bass-orientated! If the volume is very loud the sound can sometimes crack and become really broken so I don't think they are something you can use for a party etc, but the loudest I keep it is still really clear.
I would recommend these if you can pick them up second-hand I would! they are a cheap good quality set of PC speakers!
For those of us who prefer to live without the added wires and bulk, or who simply need the space, the MX5020 is the perfect choice. Featuring a polished, piano-quality black finish, the MX5020 is a great-sounding, stunning-looking 2.0 powered audio system that gives the phrase "less is more" new meaning. Two custom-designed woofers produce extremely responsive sound, while horn-loaded tweeters offer extra-wide, crystal-clear dispersion of the high frequencies. Surprisingly deep bass thanks to revolutionary MaxxBass technology rounds out the sound. Put simply, the Altec Lansing MX5020 speaker system creates the new standard in 2.0 powered audio.
