Summary: We'd have a much easier time recommending the Logitech Z520's average sound quality and lack of features if it didn't cost $130. We'd rather point you toward the Logitech Z523 system that offers best-in-class sound quality (and a subwoofer to boot) at an affordable price.
Pros: Rear-facing tweeters provide pseudo surround sound; generous two-year warranty.
Cons: Pricey; hardwired cord; lacks RCA audio input, no bass or treble controls.
Conclusion: It's hard to believe that a set of speakers could make desk time seem more attractive but these ones actually do. Logitech's Z520 has a slick design that seems built to last. Plus, they actually make that wide open 360-degree sound happen, which is pretty darn cool. Without the subwoofer, it would seem like an $80 to $100 price tag would be more appropriate, but we can't complain too much.
Cons: No subwoofer, Price could be a bit lower, No mounting options
