Summary: Easy to plug in a set up. Reasonable sound for the price. BUT!!! Remote doesn't work and there is NO support help. Very frustrating even to try to find help on the website. Buy without the remote in mind.
Summary: Like a lot of other people the sound worked out of the box (on a Windows 7 64-bit machine) but the remote control was dead no matter what I tried (installing newer software, playing with the configuration, different machines, different usb ports, reversing the battery, etc).
Summary: Logitech Z-5 USB Speakers for PC/Mac The Logitech Z-5 speakers are advertised as providing Omni-directional sound via multiple drivers per speaker. The drivers use a primarily polymer-like material and provide outstanding high-frequency audio.
Summary: I have been pretty satisfied with speaker systems from Logitech. The one I am using now is Logitech Z-680 5.1 channel THX certified speaker system and it still works great for my home theatre system.
Summary: These do indeed sound okay no matter where in the room you are, and the remote is cool, but the problem is there is such limited power and the sound is very flat. Even using some of the equalizer presets in iTunes doesn't help much. There is virtually no bass coming from these speakers.
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.
Summary: I'm a fan of Logitech products and have used their speaker sets for years. This looked like the perfect set to use with my laptop, which I am often using in various places of my house. Setup was simple, just plug into the USB port and they were good to go.
Summary: Logitech's Z-5 speakers feature "Omnidirectional acoustic technology" as the main selling point. Rather than containing one driver and emitting sound in a single direction, they have several drivers and are designed to produce sound in all directions (except up and down), so that the music follows...
Summary: I have a little Bose system already hooked up to my computer, so I gave these to my wife. Overall, they don't compare to mine, but then again they didn't cost near as much. These are OK, but I wouldn't turn them up loud--too hissy.
