Altec Lansing FX5051 USB 5.1 Speaker Review

If you are a fan of PC games or like to watch movies on your PC and you are not using surround sound, you do not know what you are missing. Surround sound makes games and movies so much more enjoyable.

The problem for some is that they have computers that do not have the ability to connect normal 5.1 surround sound speakers, which is where Altec Lansing comes in with their USB 5.1 speaker systems up for review over at Everything USB.Review excerpt: "Gone are the days of seeing boring black rectangles on your desk, as Altec Lansing has taken a more angular approach with their latest offering. While silver and black is nothing new (but I still love the color scheme), what gives the FX5051 speakers their unique look is the fact that each of the five separate speakers is shaped like an irregular pentagon with a broad face and a square base that's angled straight at you."
