Gigaworks T40 Series II 2.0 Speakers

Pretty good speakers from what I gather despite the lack of sub. I have the T50, which are essentially the same just with added bluetooth functionality and I really can't complain.

Wow, I didn't know Google made music!
I have had a set of these connected to my TV for quite a while and if I remember correctly I paid about the same as this deal.
They are really good and if used too loudly could easily annoy the neighbours if you're one of them thoughtless people.

The 'deals' from Creative are quite predictably the same price on a regular basis, but figured it was worth sharing (not for the first time), especially with the freebie

You should just be able to connect it to the headphone port on the TV. No extra cables required.

Yup, 3.5mm stereo jack.
These are the PC speakers I would buy if I had the money. Decent price even without the headphones.

Yes,I just plugged them into the headphone socket on my TV.
It also has the advantage of them being controlled by the tv's remote for the volume unlike the soundbar I previously had that needed a separate remote control for the volume because it was connected by an optical lead.
As I said before they are well worth the money and look better than a soundbar.

Great I have heard had that they are very good speakers and I heard soundbars can be a pain to work with some tvs so they sound ideal

I've never heard a soundbar (what a stupid marketing term for a speaker) that didn't sound appalling for it's asking price. My theory is that you pay a premium for the term 'soundbar'.
Been cheaper but quality PC speakers have some heat.
I've had these speakers for about 8 years (maybe series 1) and they're still going strong, despite being the music provider of many many many a house party when I lived out with my mates. They're loud and have a nice clean sound. The bass is decent on them, not overpowering at all. I have mine hooked up with a sub now tho for a bit extra kick.
Worth considering a 2nd hand pair of active bookshelf speakers (so no need for amplifier) eg from CEX for the warranty, you can get great sound for the money.
I ended up getting the Bose Companion 20's when I was looking for office speakers.

Got them for £158 from John Lewis who price matched PRC direct.

Yes, almost twice the price, but they look FAR better than these and sound nice too. For me, the design of the Bose is worth the extra cost, because these are so fugly.
I got the T20 Series II

Literally the best speakers I've owned, the sound quality is amazing and loud!

These are double the quality and sound of the T20.
I have the 20,30 and 40 with the these T40 being the best. Used for computer/TV
I've seen the price rise for their T range recently.

So, any music then : )
I have these and can't fault the sound quality but the power knob (ooer) - which you turn clockwise to switch on - has been ropey (and getting worse) for about a year. You should hear it "click" and light up, it doesn't seem to any more and it takes ages to get it to "click".

Blimmin' annoying, I have to turn it on and off by inserting the power cord all the time - probably not good long-term.

I'm glad the T50 have a power button in that case, and I haven't noticed any issues with the volume knob(s). Not sure why they seem to have stopped selling them though, a shame really, even if their price did seem a little steep just for added bluetooth vs the T40 (fortunately for me they were a gift).

I was wondering if anyone else had the same - but I haven't seen any mention of this in reviews, etc.
