Not enough volume on this this soundbar


I have not been happy with this little laptop sound bar. I mean, it's nice but it has no more sound output than the speakers built into the computer. I was very disappointed. I don't understand why laptop speakers are so low anyway. Why can't you make...

No Brains required


This portable USB sound bar works great for my limited needs. I could barely hear anything from the internal speakers on my laptop, but now everything is loud and clear. I use it for personal daily surfing online. Easy to install, and I thought it was...

Excellent Sound


This sound bar has truly amazing sound for its size and price. I bought this for a laptop I used to have, which had very poor quality speakers. This sound bar turned that laptop into something I enjoyed listening too again.

Dell PS511 Portable USB SoundBar


Good sound quality for a small package, with greatly improved volume over the Inspiron 6400 that I'm using it with (especially important in places with a loud background such as on a road trip).

PS511 Portable USB Sound Bar


I'm not impressed with this at all. My computer only recognises it sporadically. Most times my laptop's speakers override them. I can't seem to get them to work at all now.

Solid Upgrade to Built-in Speakers


Purchased these on special at almost half price and use them on a mini notebook so they're almost as wide as the screen.

Speaker is SO convenient!


I didn't want to mess with cheap plastic parts on school nights, so this is a lifesaver! Better then expected! I highly recommend, especially to students. Travels well.

Little speakers pack a punch!


Even though this clip-on speaker is meant primarily for a laptop, I have them clipped to the front of my monitor rack, and they work swell! I like not having to have a separate power supply and they take up very little space. Don't sound half bad either.
