Cyber Acoustics CA-2988 USB Portable 2-Piece Speaker System, Black
Purchased these to provide sound for a powerpoint presentation at a memorial service being held in another city. My purchase criteria were therefore portability, volume and sound quality. These speakers met my needs exactly.
Speakers are thin and take up little space. Approximate dimensions are 3"x5"x1" by my measurements. The connector cord cleverly turns into detachable pedestals for each speaker. Speakers are magnetic and cling together for easy carrying. Provided is a carrying bag that holds the speakers... and yes!, the connector cords as well, contrary to what others have stated on other review sites.
Others have also complained that the connector cord must plug into both the sound-out jack (for sound) and the USB port (for power) -- not a big deal IMO.
The speakers play significantly louder than the built-in "Bang & Olufson ICEpower" speakers allegedly contained in my Asus laptop, and -- for their size -- the sound quality is quite good.

Great portable speakers!
I was amazed at the volume and clarity of these speakers! They come with a storage bag, so I can just throw them into my bag without having to worry about stray parts. They look and sound more expensive than they are, and I would recommend these without reservation to anyone looking for portable USB powered speakers.

More static than I have ever heard through computer speakers. Everytime I move my mouse it makes the static even louder.

You Get What You Pay For
I purchased these speakers to use in my classroom as we watch video via computer to LCD.
For the price these work. Unfortunately, I will take these back though, because the volume was just barely loud enough for my students to hear. I like a little more drama for my class so I will return these for speakers with more output in volume, even if does cost a bit more.
Also, one speaker would lose output volume totally unless I fidgeted with the cord connection. Irritating.
