Considering Rokits are (at least) double the price of these I would say it depends on your budget and if you need the items to hold their resale value. Rokits will always sell on Ebay if you need to out them. Sound quality wise, I'd say these will probably be very close to Rokit 3's as Alesis are a well known studio brand with a good reputation. At this price, I'd definitely consider these if I didn't already own a pair of Rokits, but, on saying that, I wouldn't swap my Rokit 5's for these.

Alesis have a good track record in studio monitors. The M1 actives were the go to for anyone wanting to produce at home. For 64 quid, it's gotta be worth a punt.
Never owned a pair of monitors. Always thought the smaller variety like these aren't a good choice as they lack low end. Is that the case?

They are monitors. They are supposed to be neutral and precise for music production. Never heard these so can't comment on a particular model, but if you looking for something bassy, I think you should look elsewhere
A speaker with high expectations yet tells you its "peak" power? That's Curry's/DIxons Saisho/Matsui territory. And magenetically shielded? That's not been required since we had CRT monitors!
"Monitors"? For use in "studios"? Perleez! They're loudspeakers for goodness' sake

Other electronic equipment, magnets can disrupt more than just a CRT. I can't think of a good example though!
Are these better than those bookshelf speakers sold at richer sounds for £100-£150? I understand the price may be twice as much but how does this set compare to them? Big difference in sound quality?

I know they are monitors. But bass isn't something that doesn't exist in a neutral sense. It means they're not emphasized in any way. That shouldn't mean no bass.
I asked because if you are producing music for example. You want to hear what you're producing. Bass included. If you make music with monitors that lack low end I'd assume that's not a good thing as you're not able to audibly monitor it.
I'm asking out of curiosity.

If you ever opened up a mechanical hard drive you would fid it has rare earth magnets inside that are far more powerful than ones inside these little not so loud speakers.
Any more urban myths? Bring 'em on.,

I don't disagree with you, and what you wrote is True - but did you not watch Breaking Bad?
i think the idea is is that most people don't listen on HiFi, so no need to go below 50hz (is that the right way round?) bass is only needed for hifi. you have to look at the spec's to see a lot of speakers don't really go very low. they'll be reasonably clear and add a sub that goes to 35Hz if you want more (cheaply). having said that i see these only go to 80Hz, that will be bass light.

These likely to be any good as DJ monitors? Similarly guitar/kboard monitor? Bought a Philips device (released some years ago) and the damn aux in goes through the firmware creating a ~700ms lag, if you can even believe that.

That's what I mean. 80Hz is a bit high

it used too be mixed for the "boombox" now it's a mix for the earbuds.
ps. i'm not disagreeing with you.

Not entirely sure what you mean. Most earbuds I've used have very prominent bass.

these speakers do have a role in the world. As you say, don't count on any bass. Though for me it is the silk dome Tweeters that are interesting because they can be smooth on the ears. I'm really into hi-fi and I find little speakers like these have a use. I prefer to listen to music on small speakers because it's less demanding of my attention

I'm not sure what Breaking Bad is.
i'm not sure what i mean either (not enough knowledge) but i wonder on the correlation between the rise of the small speaker and the wide use of ear buds for listening. there might be a number of factors
here's an interesting answer though

Magnets Man! Breaking Bad is one of the greatest American TV shows of all time. (according to IMDB)

i like sound too, my kitchen player is a yamaha crx 140 and recently, in barnardos, i bought an unused japanese copy of dreams come true, sing or die( i'm not that keen on the music itself, but i try to keep an open mind). i have never heard this little player sound so good. there is more to creating sound than i understand. in this case it may be japanese music on a japanese player and so the mix, or quality of equipment correspond. there may be any number of factors of course, it was made on small yamaha monitors, for example.
