I cannot say enough good things about this product. I thought that I would have to pay a lot of money for speakers of this quality. If you are on a limited budget get these you will not be disappointed.

Mixing with these speakers is incredible. I used Audio Technica headphones before I purchased these and while it sounded really good I mixed down a song using the MR5s and then listened back over the headphones and I could not believe the difference. I have a lot of re-mixes to do.

Selection of input options and ability to adjust the highs and lows to meet the needs of your environment rate these high on feature content as far as I'm concerned.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. Make sure that you open the manual and follow the quick setup instructions. They even write them like "We know you want to crank these babies up but for your own good do it like this". The manual is very good, concise and well written, easy to understand.

They are really solid, you can tell as soon as you take them out of the box that they are well built with quality materials.

I compared a lot of ratings and these monitors constantly came out on top for value, quality and features.

Manufacturer Support
I'll give them a 10 here because the best support you can get is to have well written and easy read more to follow directions. I would guess that based on the quality of the product that they would take as much pride in their support. I hope that I don't have to find that out.

The Wow Factor
The monitors are black and black is cool. They look pretty sitting on either side of my monitor. I like a clean and simple look and these fit the bill. Very understated and very functional.
