Creative Gigaworks G550W

 

If eardrum-bursting volume is key, these rear- wireless behemoths are a close rival to the Logitechs. Creative claims its audio sorcery pushes peak output to 550W, which is loud enough to power a mini festival

Great volume, Solid build

Take a while to set up

These earphones are of solid quality and good performance

Creative GigaWorks G550W review

 

Creative's GigaWorks G550W set stands out thanks to its massive subwoofer, equally huge 310W power rating and wireless rear speakers.

Creative - GigaWorks G550W

 

In the main Creative's GigaWorks G550W are a conventional set of 5.1 surround sound speakers. The subwoofer is rated at 130W and the five satellites are 36W each, which totals 310W RMS. However, Creative claims a ...

You pay a hefty price for the GigaWorks G550W, of which one quarter pays for the 'wireless' connection to the rear satellites. If you feel that's an unnecessary luxury you should consider the cheaper, wired, GigaWorks ProGamer G500. But the G550W is an...

Bad Experience

 

Will never buy a Gigaworks set-up again.

Sounded great the first couple of months

Near the 1 year mark the power button started acting up, would have to press the ON/OFF button numerous times to get any sort of reaction. One day I turned it on and the woofer blew out. $350 paperweight

Creative GigaWorks G550@

 

You may want to go to Creative Labs website, click the support button at top, then speakers, then at the very bottom middle there is a link to click if your speakers aren't listed, click that, from the list select Multi-Channel Systems, GigaWorks...

Sounded great for the first month. For the price, I was very happy with the purchase...at first

After a month of on and off usage, I'd say 4-5 hours a day, the power to the Subwoofer would go out. I'd have to crawl under the desk, toggle the power on/off to get sound again. This worked for a few days, but now when the power goes out it takes...

GigaWorks G550W Problems

 

I've never had problems with Creative products before and hope they restore my faith in the.

This has to be one of the best sounding systems I have ever owned ; The wireless rear speakers are great, I put them on some really nice stands

Within a week of setting them up, the woofer started to cut out after about 15 minutes of being turned on. I checked out the Creative forums (maybe I should have gone there first before my purchase) and found that allot of people are having the same...

Product Specifications

Creative GigaWorks G550W wireless speakers are the THX Certified solution for ultimate 5.1 audio on the PC. Ideal for gaming, home theater, PC use and MP3 listening, they offer maximum convenience by eliminating untidy surround cables to the rear satellites. They then add the extra flexibility of a wireless remote that can even control key functions on popular Creative MP3 players! Sound quality is outstanding, thanks to high-efficiency, full-frequency satellites and a wood subwoofer with a dual ported design for aggressive bass - great for games and movies. Satellites and subwoofer are finished in black, with metal grilles for a distinctive look, and the design includes a headphone output for private listening.
