      Very good!

      I purchased this set of "Creative" speakers only last week for just under £100, and i have found them to be very good! I believe they are 310 watt, which is very good seeing as my VERY loud guitar amp is only 65 watt. I bought them mainly for my PC so i can play songs from itunes and spotify when my friends come over, and i find them very good at doing this job.

      They produce an excellent sound, which is brilliant as i love my music. They do have a lot of bass on them, which can be slightly annoying for some songs, but overall they delivera a great, rich sound.

      The set of speakers comes with a very good remote control, which allows you to alter the sound of individual speakers. This is perfect for creating the sound you desire, in the places of the room you most want it.

      The speakers aren't the most aesthetically pleasing, and "Creative" could maybe have come up with a design a bit more creative here!! But the sound is good, so they're worth it!

      If you can get these below the £100 mark, i would go for them and couple them with a good sound card

      I needed some speakers for my PC, i had bought a decent sound card so i needed some decent speakers to plug into it. These looked a little boxy but the specs were the best at the time for the price I paid for them.

      The sound on these speakers is great, although the bass needs toning down a bit unless you want to annoy your neighbors. I have a few tracks that I tested these out on and the treble seemed bang on although the voice was a bit dull, but that was soon fixed, messing with the settings on the remote. Talking of the remote, you do not normally get individual volumes but in this case you have volume adjustments for the sub-woofer, the treble, the center speaker, the rear speakers and also an overall volume. Once these are set right, i would hide the remote somewhere so nobody can mess these up.

      Overall, If you don't mind the looks, these speakers are worth the money, the sound is great once it is set up, and you can then control the volume through the PC and forget about the speakers. Don't forget to couple this with a decent sound card or you would be wasting money running these through your on-board sound card.
