Good sounding subwoofer
Volume control fails (See comments)
There is some static in the right speaker, although it is very minor and hardly noticeable
My Dell A525 speakers worked great for a year and a half! Not a whole lot of power, but these things weren't lacking very much in terms of sound quality. Listening to music was a treat with these. Sound in games was superb. Was very pleased up until a few weeks ago. After nearly two years of use, the volume control on the right speaker stopped working properly. Now when I turn my speakers on, they come in way too loud (at the lowest setting). I have to turn my Windows Volume Mixer way down (into the single digits!) just to get the speaker volume into an acceptable range. After adjusting the Windows Mixer volume, I have found that after I turn the dial on my speakers up a quarter of the way, it has maxed out it's volume. That's the main issue. There are a couple other minor things. See good/bad/points.
Before this issue with my volume control, these speakers were wonderful. Maybe it's an isolated issue. Do your research before purchasing.
