Creative GigaWorks T40 Review


On their own, the T40 are a solid set of computer speakers that won't eat up too much space on your desk.

Creative GigaWorks T40 PC Multimedia Speakers review


Creative offers an impressively wide range of PC, iPod, and multimedia speakers--at least 20, by our count. But we were drawn to the company's GigaWorks T40, a set of unusually tall (12.5 inches) stereo PC speakers that retail for less than $150. The...

Stylish mini-tallboy PC speaker with high-quality dual midrange drivers; easy access to volume, treble, and bass controls; headphone jack; provisions for optional iPod dock.

May be too tall for some tastes; rear power switch and overly bright power light mar an otherwise slick design; no option to add subwoofer.

The Creative GigaWorks T40 is a good choice for those looking for larger than average size and sound in their PC speakers.

Creative GigaWorks T40 Speaker System Review


The Creative GigaWorks T40 speaker system is a great solution for people looking for an upgrade to the lousy stock speakers that came with their PC. With a street price of around $125 in many

excellent highs and midrange performance ; very cool looking desktop speakers ; small footprint

small drivers limit bass response ; does not play as loud as some systems ; low level from the headphone jack

Overall I really liked these speakers. For the money I would like to see a little better low end, but with the slim design of the cabinet and the 2.5" drivers, it just ain't gonna happen. I think this also limits how loud the system will play (although...

udged on appearance, the T40s are quite blatantly a direct follow-on of the T20s, which is happily a good thing. As with the original product, the vis...

Creative Gigaworks T40 Review and Ratings


If you're obsessive about music and movies, these compact speakers deliver audio that rivals most entry-level 5.1 setups.

Excellent mids and highs ; Strong room-filling sound

Off switch is located behind the speakers ; No auxiliary input

The Creative T40 speakers provide the most audiophile-like experience we have heard on a budget speaker system. The sound is neutral and not exaggerated like most of the PC speakers we have heard. While the speaker character may not be for everyone, we...

Creative Gigaworks T40 speakers


Introduction Do you need to get big speakers to be able to listen to music? Do you want to drag around speakers that are 4 feet tall? If not maybe tonights review could be something for you. We got a set of Creatives latest creation named T40 to test....

Nice looking ; Gread sound ; Well packed ; Gold coated connectors ; High quality control knobs

Lacking bass ; Price

I think that this kit might not be the best choice for the 150$ it cost. I tested it with my Creative X-fi Fatal1ty soundcard at various settings and as I mentioned earlier I think that the sound is great and clear even at highs and lows but it lacks...

The Creative GigaWorks T40 Series II 2.0 computer speakers feature very good sound through an impressive design with two full-range drivers and a tweeter on each unit, plus BasXPort technology for a better-sounding low end. The speakers are also very...

The speakers connect easily to computers running the latest and earlier versions of Mac OS X and Windows. Technical support and help includes a one year warranty, email support, which is kind of tricky, because clicking on the contact link on...

The Gigaworks T40 speakers are a great product. Creative has managed to produce some great quality audio for a very affordable price. As with most of Creative's range, they probably won't appeal to true audiophiles, but for everyday use they excel.

Powerful and clear mid-range, deep and well defined bass, great volume levels with minimal distortion

Treble can be slightly overshadowed, the very lowest frequencies aren't as well represented as they would be with a dedicated subwoofer

Product Specifications

GigaWorks T40 stereo speakers will fascinate you with their impressive audio delivery. Combining premium components with Creative's many years of leadership in world-class audio, each satellite delivers spacious, balanced sound, thanks to the potent combination of two high-performance midrange drivers and a dedicated high-end tweeter in MTM (midrange-tweeter-midrange) configuration, plus BasXPort technology for strong, dynamic bass without a subwoofer. The midrange drivers have woven glass fiber cones for warmth and stability, while each tweeter has a cloth dome for crystal clarity. Front mounted controls for power, volume, bass and treble, plus a versatile adaptor, made these speakers great partners for DVD players and televisions as well as PCs.
