Summary: As others have mentioned the, sound is a little distorted at higher volumes, but its just fine for my use on a desktop; probably not the best for gaming, but can't argue the refurb price. Any sound and/or aesthetic considerations would also be relevant for a new system.
Pros: This review is meant to consider the aspects of this Refurbished condition; for actual product criticisms, see 'other thoughts'. I think I got lucky in receiving a next to new system as it worked decently well out of the plain brown box it came in. Despite the questionable packing, miraculously, ...
Cons: Was packed like a 2yr old's toy box, tossed in, loose without even bubble wrap (but somehow survived; see pros). Missing all speaker cords; apparently they forgot to toss those in! (I had to use a few of my own spare cords for testing) Their customer support is disgusting! When I called logitech ...
Summary: If you have this issue as I do just turn them up to about 85 % and adjust in windows is the only work a round on these refurbs I have found ... Tested them on 3 different systems.
Pros: Ok they work but theres a trick to them.
Cons: sound at 0 no sound. sound at 25% faint sound at 50 % faint sound at 75% you bearly hear them. sound at 85% you can now hear them anything beyond that its screaming.... I had to turn the sound almost all the way up on these speakers then adjust the sound in windows ....I don't know why they are l...
Pros: Priced reasonably for surround sound speakers.
Cons: With 2.1 stereo, I noticed a fair amount of static in the right front speak that would also cut out intermittently. Not as noticable in 5.1 surround sound, but it's still there. Contacted Logitech Support, but got absolutely nowhere with them. They would only ask if the speakers were under warran...
Summary: Bought this to replace a PC 5.1 surround sound system I have had for over 8 years. I figured after all that time tech should have improved. Was looking at the z506 at the $100 mark as a possible upgrade so when I saw a referb under $60, I jumped at it.
Pros: 5.1 under $60, work ok
Cons: way too short cords, no documentation, no support from logitech
Summary: Something to notice is that I bought this system USED. If I had bought it new and had this experience, I would have given it one star. TL;DR: Great system, phenomenal price, crummy engineering. For the first three months, the system was brilliant.
Summary: It's honestly not worth sending back so i will have to live with it I have tried all 3 and yeah they all work like that they arent bad but if all of them worked then i would be happy
Pros: Loud Good sound Good bass Clear Price Sturdy looking
Cons: 1 speaker does not work when plugged into my TV (or too quiet) 3 speakers are off when plugged into my computer (my old x540 had a button to turn on all speakers) does not come with RCA cords the bass dial is in the back of the bass speaker
Found a work around the no optical input source problem

Summary: The reason why I only give this speaker set 3 stars is because it lacks the optical input source. I would give it a full 5 star rating if it actually had the optical input source. On the other hand, I had to go out and purchase the nuclearav area5.1 digital surround decoder so I could use this on my...
