my old pc speakers finally died and i wanted a cheapy pair to replace them, and fast. these cyber acoustic speakers are exactly what i was looking for. they arrived less than 48 hours after i ordered them, in perfect condition. i had them hooked up and working 10 minutes after i took them out of the box. they're just the right size to fit on my desk, and for their size the sound is great. no problems with the volume control, it works perfectly. considering the low price and the free & fast shipping, these can't be beat,,, i you're thinking about it, just buy them.
