Chris, Leeds Gamer, movies & TV

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Comes with a range of mounting kits for the speakers which some manufactures charge considerable amounts for as extra's. The speakers and sub look very good and are finished to a very high quality. Surround sound is fantastic and very powerful even though the speakers are really tiny. The bass from the sub is also fantastic. I've got no where near maximum settings for volume and there is absolutely no distortion. Amazing for gaming, movies and TV.
Bad points:
Even used with a really good brand new AV receiver (Onkyo TX-NR609) and quality cabling set-up the sound quality for music isn't as good as i'd hoped, i think this is down to the fact all/most bass comes from the sub with the speakers being so small. This doesn't seem to affect gaming, movies or TV, but it does for music. Also, the centre speaker isn't a dedicated centre speaker as some 5.1 speaker sets have, this can be noticeable at times (as most speech comes from the centre speaker only). I'm being very critical here, if you consider the fairly low cost of the speaker set as an all rounder it's pretty amazing and a i love it.

Andrew, Glossop Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quality product at a good price. Very good sound from such small surround speakers,
Bad points:
Mouting the speakers on stands was a little tricky but got there in the end. I will eventually be mounting them on the wall.
