Altec Lansing VS2521 Review


The Altec Lansing VS2521 speakers are available for a MRP of Rs 3,199, which you may find a little expensive for the way it performs.

Just ok


Honestly, not bad for a dorm setup.

They are cheap. Possibly one of the better 2.1 sets you can find for less than $50 ; The sub does what it ought to do, I think it's by far the best part of the set

The LED on the main speaker is quite bright ; You have to get to the sub to turn them off ; It's the whole "sub plugs into comp and wall, speaker A which has the controls plugs into sub, and speaker B plugs into speaker A. I find this setup annoying ;...

Should have gotten this sooner


At first shipping seemed high, but the weight and distance this thing traveled really worked out to a good deal.

Works great. The size is very easy to arrange in a cramped work area

It is just the right amount of power for what I need in this case, but anyone wanting some loud boom to fill a house might want more

Good Sound


If you need a good DVD/CD burner, I'd recommend this one.

Good sound, even at low levels. Nice Bass good for gaming

Not too much. Maybe that the Sub speaker is vulnerable. Instead of being slightly recessed it protrudes from the Bass Cab

ALTEC LANSING VS2521 28 Watts 2.1 Speaker System


I bought these at wally world in a bind. It was either these....or these. I'll just be patient next time and order something quality from newegg.

The sound was decent enough. The bass was actually pretty good for a $50 set

The speakers don't turn off from the actual speaker knob, you have to flip the switch on the sub ; The speakers are poorly designed; they're front heavy and have a triangular base which translates into any jostle making them fall flat on their face ;...

Best sound I've ever experienced


I bought this set expecting to find the same quality as I might've gotten 4-5 years ago: after all, how much has the technology changed? Truthfully, not much... So I dropped $90 on sound with this and my soundcard and couldn't regret it less- it...

Relatively Cheap ; Incredible Bass ; Controls on the speakers as opposed to on a separate manual dial ; Can be mounted sideways in front of your computer (pic provided)

Honestly, the cords were a little short from the speakers to the subwoofer ; I didn't like the daisy chain from the speakers to each other and then to the subwoofer (worried about wear, damage, and ability to separate the speakers from each other if...

They WERE great...


If I had written this review in the 1 week - 1 month range, I would be raving about how great this system was for the money. Now I can see why it cost so little - it's pretty shoddy. I don't recommend this set for anyone except the strictly budget...

They sounded great - awesome resonating bass, crisp treble, all around delicious ; Also, the price tag is pretty darn reasonable

The cords are too short, first of all. I can't put the subwoofer under my desk because of that, and I can't put the speakers in front of my computer unless my monitor stands on the subwoofer. They have to go to the sides ; And, it's been 5 months, and...
