Summary: Not bad for the cost...has minor feedback issues at moderate volume, sub distorts a little. Wiring design makes under desk installations nice and tight, at least. Definitely a downgrade from my old Klipsch 2.1.
Summary: To me speakers are the one investment in computers that you wanted to spend money on. The thing is that you can have a nice set of speakers for a long long time unlike the rest of the computer. My speakers have lasted for 7 to 10 years and have lasted almost as many computers. Now with these speakers I think for this price you could get a better quality 5.1 set up. But you might be somebody who doesn't really need a 5.1 setup than the speakers might be a good option.
Summary: So I just received it and got it the next day but that's not why these speakers are freaken bomb. The subwoofer is so loud it shakes my table at college when I'm trying to study and you can hear it throughout the dorm and the first day someone already knocked on my door to say how impressive these speakers were cause he heard it outside the dorm.
Summary: This speaker sent is very attractive and provides good sound, but is pretty pricey. The sound is fairly directional from the horn-shaped speakers, which shouldn't be an issue if you use these as speakers for sitting at your computer, but may be an issue if you use them as multimedia speakers where you sit a bit away from them (the wired remote would be an issue too).
Summary: I liked these speakers and didn't have any problems with the set up or sound quality. I really feel they would fit better in the $80-$120 price range. They are very attractive and every one who has seen them comments on them. I'm happy with them and enjoy the sound quality.
Summary: This looked good while in the box, even after unpacking. It fit in the usual way: the satellites on the desk with the sub-woofer under the desk. Very stylish, but it ends there. Hookup was horrible. There is no reason to have a corded remote. Ever. The controls could be on the sub, a wireless remote or even USB w/ an application (although it would limit it to computer only). Very disappointing.
Summary: This may be the most beautiful piece of junk if such a thing exists! Set it up...plugged it in....Hmmmmmmm a loud annoying hummmm was all I got. Finally got thru to support who told me to wrap it up and send it back. Which I did! Looks 10 performance 0. Seriously the Hummmm will drive you mad!
Summary: The speakers are beautiful. The minimalist design fits well in any room . The bass box looks good with the beautiful mirrored design features. I was excited to get the system set up and working with my LG big screen. Installation was easy, but we ran into one big problem. There is a loud buzzing sound that comes from the speakers when they are connected to the television. This is a major deal breaker.
Nice looking, but the specs just don't add up to the price

Summary: I've purchased and used two Logitech Z-2300 THX-Certified 2.1 Speaker System with Subwoofers. I bought one about nine months ago for about half the price of Hercules XPS 101 2.1 Multimedia Speakers. The Logitech speakers are twice as powerful. The Hercules look better and handle all the cables more elegantly. The Logitech speakers have been replaced the even uglier Logitech THX-Certified Speaker System Z623. But the cost is still almost half.
Summary: The speakers look high-end but sound only ordinary. After several weeks of listening I can only give these speakers an average rating, but this is due the high cost. Had these been listed for $75, I'd recommend purchase, but at over $200 I'm sure better ones can be found elsewhere.
