Good: Sound 5*, build & looks,
Bad: Little ridges to help turning the dials a bit easier. (grip)
Comment: A nice full bodied sound considering no external sub. For the average p.c. area / room in a house or office these will be more than good enough sound quality and volume. Not as loud as my boys 2.1, but so much better. Yes a little on the steep side a stereo pair (not 2.1) but well worth it! If these failed i'd go and but another set. I've had these 4yrs now, and I also personally think these are better sounding than the T40 !
Good: The whole sound, bass and treble, its design and its usability.
Bad: I don't really like the shape, it's too round and ball-like. They really look like it's easy for them to fall over. So you have to be really careful not to touch them too hard. It might be the last time you did that.
Comment: It took me years and different experiences to find the right speakers for my computer system. Even my sound card isn't any buy-it-and-leave-it card, it's an Auzentech gem. So one day I read some reviews about the Creative series speakers and started buying the GigaWorks Series 1 (inofficial name, because there was no "Series I" in its name). When they broke (I guess they got retired), I wanted to buy the same again, but they weren't build anymore and so I had to take the latest in this series. And didn't regret it till day. Perfect sound, light heights and deep bass make them worth every Cent. I am recommending these to anyone with a great, crisp and sharp taste in quality audio.
Good: The bass and sound quality is great
Bad: I dont have any problems with it... Its perfect (Atleast for me)
Good: sound quality
Bad: short cable runs
Comment: what type of extension cable do i need to extend the speaker cable?
Good: sound, design, size
Comment: great sound! loud bass and very clear treble!
they are expensive though, thats why i'll give them 4/5
Good: Size - subwoofer space saved
Bad: Everything else for the money spent
Comment: After years of 2 or 3 models of Creative speakers and sound cards, I was quite loyal to the brand name. After careful consideration, I ordered these speakers. The original idea was: "Hey, you save subwoofer space, you liked the SBS20 that you owned a decade ago, so the quality would surpass at least of that model". But, I was _totally_ wrong. All the hype of a built-in sub woofer may only be good for having load sound and bang or may be for advertising, but the quality/precision of sound is below that of mediocre speakers. For the price of ~75 GBP (~$100), this is extremely poor. If you like to buy something, try from something that has a separate subwoofer (make up your mind for that extra space taken and go for something less than $50 - logitech or Altec lansing. You're most likely to get a good sound than these ones. FYI, there are no defects in this model in any way. The same input sound feels great on other speakers. For the quality with which Creative has compromised itself, I am a bit skeptical of recommending anything from them.
Good: Very Good balanced sound.
Bad: Maybe not quite loud enough!
Comment: Very good for the cost, better than the competition from logitech etc.
Good: Design, quality of sound
Comment: Great value for money. The sound does not exactly blow your mind off what as computer speakers go they are great.
