do not buy these. not sure why they keep popping up on Slickdeals. they auto turn off randomly, makes movies unwatchable, and music worthless.. sound quality is just okay when it does work. not worth the trouble.

The good:
It looks like they're almost $50 on Amazon [amazon.com].

The bad/ugly:
Lots of poor reviews about a frustrating "power saving" feature that makes it difficult to actually turn them on/turns them off when you don't want it to happen.

Couldn't agree more. This damn "deal" keeps popping up again and again, and we keep chiming in about what you said with random shutoffs, makes these things like you said not worth the trouble, even they were free. TD, dont bother.

Never understood why people pay anything for ultra crummy PC speakers. $18...they have to be utter junk and the number of lousy reviews confirm it.

Cons: These speakers are extremely poor. They have a defective power-saving feature that turns the speakers off after only 30 seconds or so of use. The speakers must then be manually turned off then back on to get another 30 seconds of sound. I tried to contact JBL about this, but they have not responded in over a week so I suppose I'm stuck with them.

Pros: Since they are almost always turned off, the speakers use very little power and there is never any "hiss." In fact, they work almost as well when unplugged and stuffed into a drawer, so there is no need to have ugly wires or speakers taking up space on your desk!

I purchased these for my fiance. She loves them and they work just fine. Better quality than the options in the same price range IMHO. The workaround for the auto-off feature is to set the volume on her PC to 100% and use the physical volume adjust on the speakers themselves to turn up/down. She has not had a single complaint about them since.

People need to learn how to use these speakers. I've had these for a while now, and mine have never shut off when music plays. You have to keep your PC volume above ~20% or so, so they can DETECT the sound. Common sense, right?

Apparently not.

If yours are shutting off, you're doing something wrong.

Don't listen to anyone who doesn't own these about the quality - these are JBL quality and are amazing for the price.

I agree, these are great speakers for the price.

The key is to keep your computer's volume maxed so the speakers do not auto shut off. Use the speaker's actual volume control to control the volume and keep the computer volume at 100%.

My order was cancelled citing that their inventory was incorrect. Got a 20% off coupon for the inconvenience.

Got these for someone as a christmas gift a while back. Right out of the box the audio was fuzzy. The whole turning off on its own thing also seems to be a jbl problem with a few different models I've had. They make pretty good stuff sound quality wise but they've gone downhill in terms of quality control at least in my experience.
