Pros Great sounds from the satellites.
Loud and great for music and movies, specially the soundstage.
Cons No remote again.
Summary My GF "confiscated" my Soundsticks III so I bought this one. Cheaper but it can match the sound of the sticks iii.
I just watched a movie and could here them stepping on soil/sand.
Too bassy for music for my test but overall its ok I guess.
Pros Terrific sound quality. Neat styling. It's a real bargain, especially at a major online auction house for well under $150.
Cons None to speak of.
Summary I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
Pros The speakers produce clean, crisp and accurate audio... i was amazed to see that there was no distortion in max! Lovely sub! Great, thumpy, deep sound!! And perfect combination of the satellites and subwoofer for a rich and whole music/sound!
Cons Well.... NONE!! flawless!
Summary Good value for money! Sounds a lot better than the "Bose Companion 3"!!! and equivalent to Harmon Kardon sound sticks 2 (H.Kardon SS2 has even more tight and deeper bass)!

Pros Size, price, wrappers
Cons no treble control knob
Summary I bought these on a whim after hearing them in a computer shop. they sounded good there and the price was right. I was even more impressed when I got them home and hooked them up to my Mac Pro -- GREAT sound. Midrange can be a little shallow, but overall, the sound is very solid. I was impressed by the sound with music, movies AND games. Nice, well-rounded system at a really good price.
Pros Style, small size
Cons Not a strong performer for music
Summary I just needed multimedia speakers to use with my Apple MBP when it's 'docked' on my desk and these fit the bill. The L/R speakers are small enough to rest under my 23" Cinema Display, while the subwoofer can sit unseen behind my opened MBP.
The sound is fine with TV (via a Slingbox) or similar audio sources, but is weak with music. Since I didn't purchase these to serve as primary speakers for that application, that is acceptable to me.
