I bought my computer speakers many years ago with the help from my cousin. He helped me bought it with a cheap price from the computer fair. It is a refurbished item, that is why. I am still using it until now. However, the remote on the volume has some problem. Sometimes, the sound will just went off and you will need to press it hard before the sound is back. If I am going to change it, maybe I will consider the good m-audio studiophile av 40. It seems to be a nice speaker and suit me. Most of the time, I am just using it when watching movie or listening to the music. It should be more than enough for these activities.
