Rated 5 out of 5 by zubatron82 Worth the money
this piece of hardware if one of the last i'm buying to complete my custom build it was well worth the purchase bass is superb and the sound quality is excellent and it is very simple to set up of course don't expect out standing performance you'd get from a full 5.1 or 7.1 system but for a low-mid range performance its perfect. on another note it looks amazing suits the look i was going for. if you don't mind splashing out a little more and don't have a good sound card installed then this is the system for you, best of all you can still use headphones and a microphone through it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by screamingabdab Great value for money speakers
I was looking for a reasonably priced set of speakers, preferably in black & red, to go with my soon to be arriving new desktop and these ones looked perfect.
Nice sound, very bassy. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlackHat The non-audiophiles dream
Before I start any of this, I should definitely point out that I am not an audiophile, and so if you are you can probably disregard what I say and go and buy yourself something else.
This set has great bass - better than any set I've ever owned I reckon. I'm not usually a bass junkie, but with this set I've also found that music doesn't lose its definition too much when the bass is up quite high. For a 2.1 system this set just sounds great.
The control box is nice - other sets have things attached the subwoofer, but having the box as an addition means I can keep the sub on the floor without having to reach down between my legs to adjust volume all the time.
A bass control is a nice feature which should be included in more sets - it was one of my criteria when I chose this set and it works as expected. The patch-through for headset and mice is also nice if you want to set up for it. Personally I use mine through my keyboard but I did check, and those work too.
The only thing I can really knock on these is the materials used. This is a reasonably priced set, so it makes sense that they use plastic rather than wood in a lot of places.
I can imagine that fact will affect the lifespan of the product, though not by too much - this set is lovely if you're not super-rich and you're not an audiophile.
