Summary: Worked great especially in our smaller townhouse. Mostly reliable and the speakers produced great sound for their size. The wireless back surround speakers was an excellent feature and it never caused us problems. Only issue was with cable input, the unit shuts off without warning. I think the issue is receiving signals digitally on HD programming but during analog commercials the unit can't handle the different signals.
Great system and sound (and I have a wireless network in my home)!

Summary: This is a great system. I don't know about the other reviews and there problems, but mine works just as promised. I have one of the wireless speakers plugged into the same power strip as my Netgear wireless router and have never had a problem. At my old address, there were several people that had home Wi-fi and it worked fine there to. The only grip is that the rear speakers output is not adjustable.
Great sound, little annoyances, then died in 11 months

Summary: I purchased a refurbished unit, and the subwoofer was dead. I sent it back for an exchange, and included the control unit just in case. They replaced the control unit as well, and the new one could not be paired with the wireless speakers. Logitech customer support said that the wireless speakers and the control unit are paired at the factory, so if you have to request an exchange, be sure to request the whole set.
Impressive room-filling sound PLUS wireless satellites

Summary: So far I am happy with the sound thumping from the Logitech Z-5450 speaker system attached to my aging computer system. A new Mac purchase will include digital audio output. For now I am listening to stereo iTunes music enhanced by the Dolby Pro Logic II Music feature effect with "Panorama" enabled. Independent volume adjustment for the subwoofer, surround (rear), or center speakers is a great feature for customizing the sound to the room.
Summary: They have fabulous sound for such small speakers. The only problem I had was once I installed Vista I could no longer get sound our of the wireless rear speakers unless I used the PLII effect. I think it's a logitech driver issue that logitech hasn't come up with a solution as of yet. I spent many hours on the phone with Dell, Microsoft and Logitech to no avail.
Summary: in Few words Great crisp clear sound using my creative X-Fi Extreme Card (not using creative software plus they have not released for Vista as yet anyway). Not So Good: You really need to bump up rear volume to to get a good feel of rears in 5.1 surround sound mode which is non Dolby/DTS 5.1 The control console/display unit heats up a little which initially concerned me but so far it has been working like a charm. I definitely recommend it. All the best!!
Very fine speaker set. - Most important - makes me happy.

Summary: Just what I needed - 5.1 channel speaker system with the freedom to take the two additional rear-satellites and put them in a separate room to enjoy stereo sound transmission here and there. After that - easy enough to put them back to return to the full 5.1 DD or DXT listening configuration in the screening room.
Summary: I purchased this set to replace a set of Klipsch 4.1. Here's what I really like - Wireless rear speakers. These make set-up a snap and save hours of running wires under bookcases and jammed into floorboards. There was initially some interference with my wireless network in my house, but that has since gone away and the two operate perfectly with one another. I am writing this review in the same room where the speakers are and they're on. As for the sound quality?
Summary: This is a great system. I replaced an Altec Lansing ADA-880 speaker and this is a major improvement and that system was no slouch. This has better bass and a fuller sound and the wireless rear speakers work flawlessly. I love it!
