3.0 out of 5 stars Spoilt by annoying detail..., 28 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Creative Inspire T10 Multimedia Speakers (Electronics)
These speakers are fine for the price and I've always had a high regard for Creative products and considered it worth paying a bit more for reliability and build quality. However, my disappointment with these speakers is not to do with their audio performance but, as a powered product designed to work with a computer, they have included a power adapter that is so wide it prevents adjoining sockets being used. With most PCs having monitors, external drives, printers and scanners hanging off them this becomes a serious and frustrating issue. I have a 6-way power extension and the Creative PSU takes up two sockets, even at the end slot. It would take-up three in the middle. How did their design team miss this??? So, 3 Stars for stupidity.

I can see what the issue may b fro some, however, I have mine plugged into the middle of a standard 6 way power dist with standard plugs each side with no problem. If you wanted to run 2 sets of creative speakers you couldn't fit 2 next to eachother on one though. Although you can on a standard 2 way wall outlet ...

I just bought it (March 2010), it is only taking 1 slot for me using a six-way power extension, not 2. So it was not a problem.

I bought another pair of these recently for my laptop and the plug is much narrower than on my previous pair (no wider than a normal plug). Thankyou Creative for listening AND doing something about it.
