(Product) Altec Lansing 251 5.1 Computer Speakers (6-Speaker, Black & Silver)

I have had this speaker system for 7 years. That is a long time to ask for electronics to last, even longer for a pretty cheap set of speakers to still sound good. Amazingly enough, this set has withstood my gaming, turning it up to max while cleaning house, and even my two children snagging and pulling on the wires.

Of course, there are some downsides that come with the cost. There are no controls for treble and bass. Oh well, I use the equalizer on my sound card software. The biggest downside is the proprietary connections for the speakers. When one finally dies, that will be it for the system. However, I plan on getting many more years of use out of these.

Just like the manufacturer states these are great speakers for 5.1 surround sound gaming. If you are looking for something more for movies or music, you might want to look elsewhere.

From the Manufacturer
Experience the future of gaming with this unique 6-piece system. Large 3-inch drivers and a center channel deliver a full range of movement and sound while the ported subwoofer adds to the theater-like atmosphere. Whether you’re into games, movies or music, the 251 is an excellent all-around system.
