Creative T100 Compact Hi-Fi 2.0 Desktop Speaker ReviewAuthor: Darren McCain
Creative may be most famous for their Sound Blaster audio cards but that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Today we will be taking a closer look at the latest from their award winning line of Compact Hi-Fi 2.0 desk top speakers; the Creative T100.
Many of you may already be familiar with the previous entries in the T series. The T20 and T40 Series speakers are sold under the GigaWorks branding and have been wowing laptop and PC users for years! The CreativeT100 speakers may have dropped the GigaWorks label but they represent the next generation of compact audio performance.
It’s pretty hard to ignore the updated design of the T100 speakers. Gone are the exposed speakers and dials having been replaced with a slick black on black design and new Creative branding. Right out of the box they just look more sophisticated.
