    4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for on-the-go sound 1 July 2009
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    These are the ideal solution for laptop users, due to their portability and usb power.

    Sound quality is reasonable as you'd expect at this price point - although volume is quite impressive there is a little bit of tinny distortion when turned right up. However it is perfectly acceptable for music and general web use (youtube etc)

    The build quality is excellent, the speakers are pleasingly solid and they look impressive with a black gloss finish.

    With just a usb connection (no mains power) I expected something of a battery drain on a laptop, but they didn't cause anything notable on this front.

    So, if you're after a good value set of speakers to chuck in the laptop bag for holiday or anywhere else on-the-go, then these are a decent option.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for laptops 25 Jun 2009
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    These smart looking and reasonably compact speakers are simple to set up and would be ideal for laptop users looking to boost their audio output. Volume certainly doesn't seem to be lacking. In fact on both an iMac and a PC I had to keep the volume slider down at about 10% - even then alert sounds on the iMac could make me jump at their shear loudness.

    Being USB cable clutter is kept to a minimum as there is no need for a mains plug, but the main USB cable is a bit too short to comfortably reach a computer that sits under your desk - but I suspect it's mostly laptop users who will be considering these speakers due to their size and convenience.

    Audio quality is a bit tinny but it's acceptable for the price. The volume buttons on the side didn't seem to want to work properly on the Mac (maxing out or muting the volume, rather than simply raising or lowering it) and their response was a big sluggish on the PC leading me to over compensate until I got used to it.

    I'd recommend these speakers to laptop users, but if you're using a desktop computer I think you be better off with standard mains powered mini-jack speaker units which are likely to have longer cables and potentially superior audio quality (especially if you have a dedicated sound card).

    4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive 16 July 2009
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I have been impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. Easy to set up and gives good sound reproduction of my itunes library. Of course it doesn't compare with a top end hifi system but are great for attaching to a laptop in your office or are great for travel.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for what they are 4 Sep 2009
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    These are very good little speakers, they easily fit into small storage spaces such as the pocket on a laptop bag and work off a usb port so they're very easy to use. Having said that it must be pointed out that the bass is decidedly lacking and they are very loud compared to most laptop's in-built speakers leading to a nasty surprise unless you start muted and work your way up with the volume. They work well for what I personally want which is a set of good quality easily portable speakers for use with a laptop, however I wouldn't recommend them so highly for those who want speakers to use with a desktop computer since their slight tinniness could become annoying in that situation especially if you're going to be particularly concerned with music quality on a regular basis.

    By Mrs. Bryony A. Shaw TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I was really excited to get these and thought they would be perfect to use with my Dell Mini 9 which I love nearly everything about but not it's sounds quality. I was looking forward to having this little speakers to plug straight in when I wanted to listen to music or to take away with me on holiday.
    Unfortunately as I am running Linux rather than windows on it, these speakers won't work with it. I tried them with my larger laptop that runs windows and they worked straight away and the sound quality is great. They are neat and small and slinky looking. The volume is controlled by up/down buttons on the side and work perfectly well. For the price I would have been really pleased with these had they worked with Linux.
