The Creative Labs GigaWorks HD50s are designed to satisfy a very small consumer niche. For those looking for speakers that are ultra compact, compatible with HD Audio and attractive, the HD50s are worth the premium. For users with more room who are searching for the best value in 2.0 speakers, there are many superior alternatives. You have to know your needs before being able to take advantage of these speakers.

PROS:
+ Compact design is perfect for uses in cramped quarters
+ HD Audio enables playback of Dolby formats, 7.1 audio and DVD audio
+ Included port allows iPod docking with the optional X-30 dock
+ High quality ports and cables allow for solid connections
+ Attractive looks if you like modern design (tastes vary)
+ Good low-end sound compared to most 2.0 speakers
+ Minimalist design and controls may appeal to some
+ Decent clarity and range, particularly in the mid-range, once they are broken in
+ Compact size and performance makes these an option for cramped TV setups in a kitchen, workout room, RV or boat

CONS:
- Cost is prohibitively higher than alternatives like the T40s, T20s or Klipsch ProMedias
- Price puts this set closer to good quality 2.1 and 5.

Pound for pound, this is one of the best 2.0 Speaker Systems. The Hi-definition technology really makes a difference and the high frequency sound is super crisp (with the titanium supertweeter technology). The Low frequency is very good comparing to other 2.0 speaker systems but not good compare to any 2.1 speaker system (but that's probably not a fair comparison as since the 2.1 speaker has a dedicated subwoofer which is also huge/bulky). On price, I think this system is on the high range, but then again Bose speakers system are also pricey.

Here are some of the pros and cons.

Pros:
- Very portable
- The high frequency (tweeter) sound is super crisp which is a big plus
- All wire are long enough so you don't have to use any extension
- Very good sound overall as long as you don't turn the volume too high/to the maximum
- No additional hassle from bulky subwoofer and its wires
- Bass is very good compare to other 2.0 systems
- Very nice design. stylish and sleek.
- Looks expensive (oh wait, it is indeed expensive)

Cons:
- The bass is not anywhere near any 2.1 systems with dedicated subwoofer (if loud bass is important for you).
- It will be nice if it is built inside the speakers for even more portability
- Sound won't fill a big room (like a big living room). to be fair, I haven't turn the volume to the maximum because I don't want to take a chance and break the speakers
- Expensive for a 2.

These are decent sounding speakers for their size. They are small and lightweight. They come in a glossy white finish, which I suppose is to make them match an ipod. The black speaker grills which are magnetically attached, blend in more with the more stylish and trendy black computer monitors and keyboards that most people buy these days.

You can get decent bass out of these when using anything with an eq, just don't crank the low frequencies up too high, nor the volume. They definitely sound better than any speakers you'll find in a computer monitor, and better than most their size. But there is no fear of rattling anything on your desk, or thumping things off the wall.

When used with an mp3 player, your at the mercy of whatever eq settings it has, since these speakers offer no tone controls at all. You get a nice blue glow around the on/off volume knob, and that's it. There is no mounting holes in the back of the speakers, so they can't go on the wall.

If they do sell for the $149 price, then you'd probably be better off looking for something else. That is surely too much for what they offer in my opinion. Heck, my 280 watt Logitech 5.1 system with so much bass you HAVE to turn it down didn't cost much more than that.

And speaking of wattage, 18 per speaker is the usual stretching of the truth. The little foldout that comes with it says the hi frequency amplifier is 7, and the lower is 11. Figure about half that, 9 watts per channel is more reality. Loud enough for your desktop, don't think you'll be getting room filling sound with these though.

Edit: After a couple weeks of use, they give static when moving any of the wires, the one attached to the other speaker or the one attached to the computer. Unplugging all and replugging seemed to lessen it, but still present.
