Average Disposable Speakers..


Wouldn't buy this model again; Spend an extra $50 bucks off the start. Out of RMA window when they stopped powering on and not worth sending in. Any of the GigaWorks line 2.0/2.1 will sound better than this 5.1 system; they don't perform hardly at all...

Creative products have always seemed to have above average quality/reliability in the past ; Easy setup ; Nice finish

Lots of interference from outside sources (thought I was hearing things at first) ; Surround" speaker cables are too short to do anything with ; Dead within 2 months. Wouldn't power on

Good Speakers


I have been buying Creative speakers for over a decade now and decided to get these for my wife. I was disappointed the 7.1 channel set wasn't available.

Creative is a reliable brand; Good Bass; Clear sound

Length of speaker wires

Very nice speaker system


Loud and clear. It's not enthusiast grade audio, but it is loud in the computer room. Easy to set up

No cons to speak of at the moment

I bought this as a present for my girlfriend. It arrived quickly which I was happy with. Set it up and everything worked fine for about 10 minutes. The subwoofer then started to cut out, and now only works intermittently. The box has been thrown away...

Only one problem - but a big one!


As far as these speakers go, they give a good sound for the money. However, what Creative don't tell you is that they have a feature whereby the speakers are supposed to switch off when they don't receive input. This is far too sensitive, and the...
