The speakers are brilliant and they'd be five stars if taken on their own merit. The inbuilt RGB lights are gimmicky, for people who are into RGB, good on you, you do you. The problem is when you shut down the computer, they colour cycle unless you power them off completely - and the power switch is a button around the back of them. In short, it's a pain, you know where. There is no simple setting for "When the speakers are off TURN THE LIGHTS OFF" which seems like a colossal oversight to me, as it precludes them living in a bedroom. Still, can't fault the sound that comes out of them. I'd buy them again and block off the lights with tape (again).
