Poor Customer/Tech Support by Logitech

ZL, Amazon
20 December 2008
  • Summary: After owning this system for two years, the wireless rear speaker stopped connecting to the receiver. The solution in the product manual doesn't work and logitech support can't provide a solution. If you're willing to mail in your receiver they will offer to give you up to 50% off the z-5500. Because of their inflated prices, it would actually be cheaper to just buy the z-5500 from amazon.

Good speaker system, but wireless destroys 802.11b WiFi networks

Erik Fair "software/network engineer", Amazon
27 October 2006
  • Summary: These speakers work well, they produce good sound, and the controls and optical inputs work great too. However, if you or your neighbors have a WiFi (IEEE 802.11b or 802.11g) 2.4GHz wireless ethernet network, the wireless rear surround speakers in this speaker system will step all over the 802.11 WiFi network. I used a spectrum analyzer to see what was going on, and this speaker system appears to use frequency-hopping spread spectrum indiscriminately.

Great sound, Major problems

Lorin Roche "roche61", Amazon
14 March 2006
  • Summary: One of the wireless speakers has a HUM, very loud, that persists even if I move it to a different electrical circuit, reset it, move it to a different part of the room. Therefore I don't use it - I leave it unplugged. Also, the volume control on the remote - which is sort of indispensable - does not work properly. The button sticks. I have never seen this before on a remote, except maybe 20 years ago with clunky TV remotes.

"If you are looking for HIFi look elsewhere"

fiqqer, CNET

  • Pros: Sub Woofer, control panel, remote control
  • Cons: Cannot replace good hifi speakers, Treble is woeful, you are better of getting the wired version (only 2 speaker cables vs 2 power cables)
