x jj_4487 So I need a new pair a speakers because mine are going down the drain. I'm a student paying way too much in fees so I'm shopping for them on eBay. The options:

Option 1:
Philips SBA220
  

Current price: 3.99 but I expect bidders nearer the end of the auction.

Option 2:
Philips SBA290
  

Current price: 5.50, again I expect bidders

Option 3:
Sony SRS-T80
  

Current Price: 10.30 and rising

Option 4:
Samsung SMS M200
  

Current Price: 10.98

Option 5:
Ministry of Sound Aluminuim Compact Speaker System
  

Current price: 7.99, buy it now = 13.99

x Jess seems like the Philips ones aren't very sensible with the power supply. 6xAAA batteries?? They don't have an A/C adapter? Weird..

Having to constantly recharge or buy new batteries will be a pain in the ass.

I'm not all that familiar with MoS gear, (I had no idea they put out that much!) but it looks kind of good as far as being able to use multiple devices.. It looks a bit big and unwieldy but the sound quality could be pretty good..

I think either of the last two might be your best bet..

x Billy_Tascademo Eek...I don't really know anything about speakers at all...for home stereo systems, anyway.

I'm just a busker. I convince people occasionally that I know what I'm talking about.

x Universal Sea They're all so cheap, why not buy them all and write a comparative article?
