Introduced in 2019 as the successor of the T20 and T40 series, the Creative T100 desktop speakers come with a peak power of 80 W and multiple connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm AUX, and optical. The ongoing 55% discount offered by Amazon pushes the list price of US$177.85 down to a very attractive US$79.99.
For most computer users, desktop space is quite precious, so using a compact set of speakers is one of their basic needs. In addition to being compact, the minimalistic Creative T100 2.0 speakers come with a wide range of connectivity options and excellent audio quality. Although some potential users might consider the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity a weak point, the ongoing 55% off Amazon deal (US$79.99, down from US$177.85) turns the Creative T100 into a quite tempting product.
Next to the Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity mentioned above, the Creative T100 also comes with optical and 3.5 mm AUX inputs, as well as the ability to play hi-res lossless tracks from USB flash drives. The list of audio formats supported includes FLAC, WAV, and MP3. Unfortunately, the size of the USB devices that can be used with the Creative T100 in optimal devices must be up to 32 GB, with a FAT32 file system.
In charge of the sound are a set of 2.75-inch full-range drivers with improved BasXPort technology and a digital amplifier. Thanks to the latter, the 40 W RMS can be pushed up to a peak of 80 W. In addition to the speakers, the remote package also includes an IR remote and a 3.5 mm stereo to stereo cable.
The Creative T100 2.0 desktop speakers hold a global customer rating of 4.5/5 on Amazon, after 71% perfect scores and 15% 4/5 ratings. The breakdown by feature includes a 4.4 sound quality score, followed by 4.3 for volume control and value for money, 4.2 for remote control and bass quality, and 3.7/5 for the Bluetooth connectivity part.
Last, but not the least, it should be noted that Creative Labs US has this product listed with a regular price of just US$99.99, which is currently down to US$79.99 as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
