Small, light and no batteries needed when used with my laptop. Excellent sound for its size. Am considering adding the optional subwoofer. Buy.com's delivery time was unbelievable. Great!

I tried the Altec Lansing XT1, the Logitech V20, the Virgin Boom Tube EX, and these Creative TravelSound 500 Speakers. I returned the rest and kept the TravelSound. The reason is simple. Notebook speakers are for travel or room to room listening - not a full set up you plug in and watch at home. Because these speakers clip on the top of my laptop they win. I can take my laptop in the kitchen and watch a recorded tv show with no wires, play a video game on the couch, or play a DVD at the cabin for the family without the hassle of extra wires and plugs. They have a pretty sharp high end and very little low end. But on DVDs and TV shows that translates to clear dialogue. When powered through the USB they aren't quite as loud as the battery pack but they still sound good and won't distort at highest volume. I like base and these don't really have any but the other systems I triend either have such low volume that base isn't even an issue or the base sounds cheap and you have to deal with the speakers sitting next to the laptop instead of being connected to it. Really, I chose these for the convenience. I also leave them attached to my laptop all the time with my Altec Lansing FX6021 regular speakers, they act as center channel with nice sharp dialogue.
