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: I love these speakers. They are so loud for my dorm room. I am listing mostly to dance and house music and they are amazing. They surprise me every time I turn them on. I also play games and I am very satisfied with the sound coming out. Surround sound system does work. You can feel the 5.1 sound system. Another great thing about these speakers is remote control. It is so functional and gives you new dimension about your computer/laptop.
Summary: this is a great system. i have it in my dorm room and it fills the room well and also fills the rooms adjacent to me. the z-cinema has great sound. the only drawback is that the cords aren't very long.
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. For the size of the subwoofer I'm surprised how little bass it puts out.
Summary: Really loved this product! Very slick! Bass could be better but I loved it for the money. Download the software and it works like a charm. Would highly recomend for anyone. Feels like goin to the movies if you watch one using this system.
Summary: I did quite a bit of research before buying these, and my main worry was that they would not be loud enough. Let me just say, that I was not at all disappointing with how loud they can go. I got these to blast music at a party (15-20 people in 650ft apt), and at only half volume it was almost painfully too loud! Now I don't want to mislead anyone...because I too have had issues with the sound with some programs.
Summary: I really enjoy listening to music on these speakers, they sound great when they are fine tuned through an equalizer. The base doesn't come out too well unless you've got the volume pumped up. These aren't the loudest speakers in the world, but I live in an apartment so I don't ever turn them up to their full capacity. For games, I can't really recommend these. It's really a hit or miss. Some games sound great, others sound terrible.
Summary: If you couldn't tell by the title, this is a great setup for your computer desk. Very, very easy to put together. Sub plugs into the wall, each speaker plugs into the sub, and then one USB cable from the sub to your computer. By bypassing any soundcard your computer/laptop has, the theory is you get a pure 24bit connection to your computer via USB 2.0.
Good speakers with great sound, perfect for PC with Windows Media Center.

Summary: Logitech's Z Cinema Advanced speaker system was incredibly easy to set up and has exceptional sound. I have an Altec Lansing speaker system with a similar set up and Logitech has a far superior sound. The speakers themselves are very well designed and slick looking with their black and silver colors. They are also very solid and sturdy and look like a quality product. They connect to your PC through a USB cable and have a separate power supply.
