>>Hey, it's Justin Yu Associate Editor for CNET.com with a quick review of the Altec Lansing BXR1220 computer speakers. These are a worthy solution for shoppers that don't have the luxury of desk space or power outlets because they use this single USB cord for both power and audio which is also useful for frequent travelers. Each speaker features a 2-inch driver mounted behind these mesh screens which produce decent quality sound for $20. So, they're $20 and they're not going to power a dance party but they're certainly better than the tinny speakers built into most laptops. Our only quaom is that both speakers are held up by a silver stand attached at a fixed angle. We wish it had a tiltable stand so we can adjust the positions. But again, they're $20 so we can't complain much. You can find many more details in our full review but that's going to do it for me. These are the Altec Lansing BXR1220 computer speakers. I'm Justin Yu and that sounds good to me.
