If you can live without massive bass, and want a cost effective set of speakers for a PC or portable audio device, the VS2221 might be a good choice.

Good quality in mids and treble, Sturdy design

Poor bass response

Altec Lansing VS2220


Nice looking, very good value for the price.

Sound is good, but was expecting better from such a respected brand.

Amazing sound system for PC!


Excellent sound quality. I tested every different genre I could think of and they all sound crystal clear. No distortion when sound level is really high and bass adjustment is a must when switching back and forth between softer genres and techno. Bass...

The volume control box has three wires connected to it which makes it difficult to adjust the volume using the control box. However, once it is set, I just use my PC sound control options so it isn't a big deal

Not bad for the price


I was looking for a set of speakers to replace my Logitech LS11 Speakers. I had them hooked up to my Media Center PC in my living room. It was important for me to find small satellites that put out decent sound for under a hundred bucks. These do the...

Compact ; Great sound at low and mid range volume ; Good Price ; Little distortion at high volume

The weakness of the sub comes through at high volume

I love the bass and sound that I have now when I listen to music and play games. I would recommend theses speakers to anyone especially Creative. They are a great brand. As a matter of fact, I just ordered the same speakers for a friend of mine. Love them

The only thing that I don't like about these is that you have to manually adjust the bass on the back on the subwoofer

Nice for the $


Don't know if this will be a con or not but US version has power supply built into the sub box the others use a brick.

Decent sound quality for the price. Speaker finish matches my Sonata gloss black case. Bought this to replace a Cambridge Soundworks 2.1 system that gave up the ghost that I don't have time to repair. Of all the speaker systems I have this comes...

Volume control/I-Pod dock is hard wired to the sub box. This makes for passing wires thru a computer desk a problem. Also it takes up a bit of room on a crowded desk. The on off switch/ volume control is hard to get at. I prefer the push button power...

Awesome Bass


you get what you pay for

Very good bass. This little sub packs a big punch. For such small speakers they are pretty loud

Expensive.. the holder for the mp3 player is fit for ipods.. my creative xfi sits on it funny

pretty good


They were a little bigger than I expected, but still can be considered small. I love the look actually, very clean and smooth, not attention seeking or weird round shape.

I am really into hifi sound, but I had to purchase these to use when I don't have access to my Magnepan. So when I heard this I am quit surprised at the sound. They are small so you can't expect them to rock the house or has powerful bass. But I...

Wish the cables were removable

Altec Lansing have been making quality speakers for years and these are absurdly good for the price. As soon as you take them out of the box and feel the weight you know you've got a good speaker. Don't let the give-away price put you off!

Superb build quality. Excellent sound for the price

A touch big and unstable - my cat knocks them over :)
