Summary: 1 star means I hate it. I don't hate it at all. It gets the job done, but did not last more than a year. I keep these speakers plugged into my laptop dock. I could tell the quality was poor when I first heard it ( did not expect much from "free speakers" that came with antivirus protection).
Summary: It is possible that user error can account for the "rear speaker" aspect of my troubles, but these things are delicate and kind of terrible anyway.
Pros: Cheap, easy setup.
Cons: Flimsy wiring. Had to be wiggled -just so- or one speaker would fail altogether on arrival. Even then the sound was muffled. Windows 7 recognized it as a 5.1 system and try as I might I could not convince it that the 2.1 speakers I had were the front two. Noooo, these are the rear left and right ...
Summary: If you're considering getting these speakers, I would consider saving up and getting something with a little better quality.
Pros: For the price, these are okay speakers in terms of audio quality. The sound is especially nice when the subwoofer is sitting on my hardwood desk.
Cons: These speakers emit a low humming sound at all times when plugged in. Even with the power switch turned off, the humming still persists. I have to unplug them when I'm not using them or else they drive me crazy.
Summary: Won't buy logitech speakers again and definitely not the 5.1/7.1 systems as that's just more speakers that can die or have problems.
Pros: They sound good and the subwoofer is nice to have. Played everything with them including games, music, and movies. The headphone jack is another nice addition. Look pretty good next to most computers.
Cons: The right speaker started going bad right after the warranty period ended. This makes the left kind of worthless and now they sit here unused.
Excerpt: Not worth the $30.00 Not even close! I actually put the "speaker system" back in the box to go return it, pay the difference and get a little better sound. But since its in an office I settled for it and kept it. Not worth buying.
Excerpt: At first was happy about price but when it was time for installation the speakers weren't working properly. Had read entire menu to see of possible causes but still nothing, not to happy with product!!
Pros: It's a great quality speaker / woofer set for the price.
Cons: I've had it for about 8 months now and for the past couple months, the right speaker pretty much doesn't play anything anymore. The smaller speakers plugin to the woofer and I can only get the other speaker to work if I fidget with the plug on the woofer for like 10 minutes. And then usually the ...
