Default 2.1 speakers

I need to find a set of speakers for my mother. I don't want cheap things that will last only 6 months and i don't need the high end set. So someone can help me find a good set at a reasonable price (under 100$)?

For under $100, I found the Edifier speakers are pretty good.

For example: Edifier M3300

I bought these today. 100$ at Future shop. I just installed them and I'm really pleased with them, they sound really good. I highly recommend them.

+ 100 for the X-240's i love these things,
They actually sound really good, my brother in law has Z5300's and in comparison the the 5300's arent THAT much better other than surround sound, and for such a small sub, it has huge bass.

..because one persons answer is usually not the only one that applies. People have different opinions on the same subject. Would be a pretty boring forum if a person asked a questions and one person answered and that was the end of it.

Yep.. bought these too and they sound great at any sound level. Like the fact the bass is adjustable so you can fine tune them to your needs. The iPod/Zune plug in is a cool feature as well.

Great value for the money I think. If you look around you may even find them on sale somewhere.
