5.0 out of 5 stars Edifier e10 review, 20 May 2013
02/06/13 - now down to £49.99 at Currys! Bargain!

-Sound is very well balanced and musical for desktop speakers.
-Good value (unlikely you can get better alternative at this price).
- good update to tv, pc or ipod sound if you have space and want something cheaper than soundbar (if you don't need digital inputs)

-(Vertical) angle is fixed too high, and ruins the sweet-spot.
- Bit bulky for a desktop system

Just got these, from high st retailer, where they are end-of-line for £59. I was considering buying a simple hi-fi set-up, but in the end decided these would be better because i mostly listen to stuff sat… Read more
Philips SPA 6200 Wired Active by Philips

Convenient, cheap and greatly improves laptop sound, but not the best sounding amplified speakers, even for under £20.

+ Bargain price on Amazon vs alternatives
+ Ok sound, simple to fit/install
+ Good-quality built in mic, for skype etc

- they could clip onto the screen better
- sound not as good as some (Logitech X-140)

The sound is good, but, if you want to spend no more than £20, I think the Logitech X-140s can't be beat.

UPDATED review!!
I've had them for 1 year now.
Improves the sound of a flat-panel tv, laptop or creates a bargain i-pod/phone/player system. Beats sound of 'docks' costing silly money 100s more.

+Sound is very natural and well-rounded. The 'passive' second driver in each unit seems to really work to deliver a warm-ish, well rounded sound.
+price (they beat other speakers at this price point for lifelike-ness and warmth of sound)

- They are fairly bulky due to the height/shape, takes up more space on a desk or tv stand than some.
- They're not the best looking.
- over time, they developed a hum when plugged into non-earthed… Read more
