Summary: After reading other reviews, it seemed like this sound system would work for my budget. I'm very pleased with the sound I hear from TV programs and movies on DVD/blue ray. The base from the subwoofer is especially richer and deeper than the previous system.
Wowza talk about some bass. I was very hesitant to pick these up,
4 January 2015
Summary: Wowza talk about some bass. I was very hesitant to pick these up, you read the specs and your like 6.5 sub with only 40 watts that can't sound that good, but boy was I wrong, When gaming or listening to music you will at times want to turn the bass down. I have always used Logitech for my surround sound setups. This little kit rocks like a more powerful much more expensive kit.
Summary: When I bought them they were $100. Four years and two moves later and they are still going strong. The cable in the back connecting the sub-woofer is a little touchy but once you get it correctly positioned it's fine. Over the years I have noticed when you have the volume turned down very low you lose some sound in the right speaker. Honestly though, if I was listening to music that low (sleeping neighbors...etc.
Logitech Speaker System Z523 - Worth every penny spent

Summary: I've actually owned this exact same brand of Speakers. After 2.5 years of owning & using the first set I had, it finally stopped working on me Ugh Loved them so much that I ended up just replacing it with a newer version. Also, made sure I bought the Extended Warranty just in case.
Summary: These are great cheap speakers for a small room. I bought them for my (small) kitchen and they have totally exceeded my expectations. I was going to buy a little wireless soundbar or bluetooth speakers, but these sound so much better. If you just need some inexpensive speakers for your computer or to rock out while you're doing dishes, or even for a small living room, these are fantastic.
Summary: I was pretty upset. I was really planning on enjoying this, but the subwoofer gives this terribly annoying buzzing sound at certain notes that I can't get rid of. It started doing it right off the bat. No return policy though. Not including the bass though, it sounds great, and the sound goes through the whole room due to the 360 speakers.
Defintely Louder But Highs And Lows Are More Muffled Than Clean

Summary: I had cheaper speakers before I got these. I am somewhat dissapointed since these speakers were double the price of my cheaper speakers and yet are only marginally better. The bass sounds louder but more of a muffled deeper bass and the highs were definitely not clean AT ALL. The vocals or string instruments on various music pieces sounds muffled as well.
Summary: Great system for the $. Was looking for something to punch up the sound from the anemic OEM speakers in our 42" flat screen TV. The Logitech unit was simple to set up, and controls are easy to understand. The room where the TV is located doesn't necessarily lend itself to good acoustics, but this system performed so much better than the TV's regular speakers. Great value for the money spent.
