Summary: Had this for several years now. GREAT sound for 2.1. Works with PC and I just hook it up to my tv with an AUX cord. Cons: -max volume could be greater -wish USB would hook up and work with smart tv (maybe I just haven't figured it out yet). Pros heavily outweigh cons.
Summary: This is a great system that is inexpensive. I would recommend it to the person that wants a system for their bedroom. I wouldn't recommend it for a larger room. The only thing I would add is a separate knob for the subwoofer and a little more power.
Summary: Its high price really scares me for it's a 2.1 system. But it turns out sort of worth the price. It's only suitable for computer system since it will provide best effect only if you sit near to it. The volume of it is a little small, funny thing that it still consumes so much power.
Decent sound quality in an easy-to-install package

Summary: In this day of advanced surround sound technology, it seems to be getting impossible to find a good computer sound system that does not include rear speakers which are often difficult, if not impossible to install (and never have cables that are long enough even for a small room).
Summary: The Logitech Z Cinema Surround Sound System is officially designed only for Windows-based operating systems using Windows Media Center. In this age of computer versatility, Logitech does not provide any support for Macs.
Summary: I initial bought the new Logitech Z523 but found that they were very underpowered. I returned them and purchased these for about the same price. With the iTunes volume turned up full and the Z Cinema volume at about 50% - 75% it plays loud enough for a small room and without distortion for me.
Summary: The remote control is quite ergonomic and easy to use. The Z Cinema does not require XP Media Center Edition or Vista to work with games and music players. XP MCE is required for full functionality of the remote, namely the buttons that control MCE functions.
