Summary: This product is nothing like I expected. The speakers produce nowhere near the sound I desire. I own a set of much cheaper Logitech speakers that produce way more sound I will continue to use. Beware of the seller as well, mine has a no return policy. So now I guess I am stuck with this junk?

Summary: If you are looking for cheap speakers with a short shelf life, then these are for you. Mine expired almost exactly eleven months after I bought them. Bummer. I was stupid enough to upgrade to another logitech model for my next purchase. Do you suppose paying more will make them last longer? I guess I'll find out. Otherwise, they were easy to set up and the sound quality was fine for music. I'd just like to get more mileage out of them. Sigh.
Summary: The speakers themselves are pretty decent quality, not quite as good as the bose companion II's I was looking to replace however. they are powered via USB from your computer... the pro's with that is you don't need a wall outlet and can run straight from the computer for less cluttering of cables. The con's are that it is running from USB which depends on the CPU for processing, so if you are playing a demanding game...
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: Not a multimedia speaker. Poor Windows 7 support. Relies on USB for many features and power. Not good for music, games or action films. I can imagine them perfect for office use that wants good replication of sound around the frequency of voice and where looking good is important. Quality = Good. Frequency Range = Bad.
Summary: The Bad When I first started using the Z-5 speakers, I could use the remote to adjust the system volume, turn the speakers on and off and also control Windows Media Player (WMP). However, a little later I needed to re-install Windows XP. From that moment on, the remote would only control the volume when WMP was active and would no longer turn the speakers on and off. The Good I contacted Logitech support via their website on December 23, 2008.
Summary: First of all I am a fan of Logitech products because they are usually the latest technology and they are also built well. These speakers are poorly designed. The biggest problem with them is that nobody (including Logitech) will say in their description what they do. The speakers come with a remote control which doesn't work just like that. I went and bought batteries thinking that they don't work because the battery is dead.
