Summary: I truly enjoy the Z5's. I needed more sound from my laptops. Z5's are the answer. USB powered, makes them convenient, the resonant camber bass, gives a full rich sound which can fill a room due to the tower placement of the remaining speakers of the system. I have the Z5's wherever I take a laptop for a prolonged period. I don't carry them around I have several sets of them, even though they are quite portable. The remote control is just icing on the cake.
Summary: Reasonable quality music reproduction with a minimal footprint. The sound emminates from the speakers much more blended in the room, making the music a great deal more lifelike. Better than adequate, I'm rather enjoying them!
Summary: I bought these to use with a Vizio LED TV which has very canny sound. For their size the speakers put out a great quality of sound and you even get some base. The omni sound works great in our kitchen. The system probably won't fill a large room, but sounds great in a small-medium sized room. The USB power helps to keep cords to a minimum on the counter. I am very impressed with the quality for the price.
Summary: These are great speakers. I got them for less than $30 on eBay, so I got a pretty good deal, but I would literally easily pay the MSRP price (i think their like $80) because no matter where you are in the room, you have great sound (you dont have to be facing the speakers because of the omni-directional output). Another great thing about these speakers is that you dont need any power source to run them because it plugs right into the USB port.
Summary: These speakers sound great, but the remote control does not work. That would not be a problem for me if the speakers also had a manual volume control but they don't - the volume control is on the remote which does not work. I don't really need the other buttons on the remote, I just need a volume control. The remote came with a battery - I also bought a new battery to make sure that wasn't the problem but the remote still does not work.
Summary: Great speakers. I will probably get another set for the computer in the bedroom. When you buy cheap speakers, you get cheap, tinny sound. For a few extra bucks, get these speakers they are excellent. They look good and sure do sound good. There is no volume control on the speaker themselves but have a little remote control. My remote does not work at the moment, but I will figure it out.
Summary: I was hoping to upgrade to speakers that were USB and also had a good strong sound with decent-good base. Not "mega" bass - just good strong bass. I find these have good quality sound quality and volume, but the $55. speakers I replaced these with had separate controls for bass and treble which I really would like on these, since the base I think is weak. The remote is a gimmick I could do without and also easy to lose I would think.
Summary: would be nice if they had a volume control on the speaker itself took a little while to figure out how to get sound out of them. thought they would just plug in and play. but in retrospect I got a brief tutorial on how to navigate thru the sound/speaker setup programs on my windows xp. finally I was rewarded with great sound. Logitech should continue to build and improve on this model.
Summary: These are amazing sounding speakers, but like many others the remote was DOA. I didn't bother returning it since it is connected to my laptop anyways and I just use the software based volume control. Don't buy this product for a controller!
