I have the Monsoon MM-1000's, a 2.1 set up. Personally I think they're terrific, I purchased them after reading many glowing reviews. Can't compare them to anything else though as I've never seen the soundsticks/iSub or JBL Creatures. They are kinda limiting in a way though in that they're only good when you're sitting at the computer listening to them. Since they're planar speakers the sound is projected mostly in a straight line perpendicular to the face of the speakers rather than in an arc, so they're not very good at filling a room with sound. Perfect though if you're sitting in front of them in one place.

They've been out awhile too, so chances are you can pick up a set for alot less than $199 US.
In fact, I got them at Fry's in Northern California for $150.

burningwheel, <a href="

I used to have SoundSticks until I moved to OS X. This speaker set gave me alot of kernel panics back then
