Look good, sound decent
Short cord
I read a lot of reviews before buying so I knew what I was getting. Decent sound for the money spent. I'm set up in a 12x12 room and they do quite nicely.

Experience: 5 Days
$75 on sale.
4" Sub with pressurized driver for deep bass.
Bass control at your fingertips off the front speaker.
Great for dub-step.
Great for bedrooms.
No tweeters
Muddy sound
Lack of clarity
Satellites distort before getting loud
Your basically purchasing an $80
There's no issue finding bass at any volume. If you want bass in voices at 5% volume, by all means.

You can't get clarity due to the satellites only have mid-range drivers and no tweeters.

I turned the sub off to test in 2.0, I put the volume to 80% and it was a joke. The 2 satellites try to handle a bit of base, the mids and can't find a high note.

Fortunately I still have my older 2.0 speakers so I just hook that into the side of this system and utilize my tweeter to even out the soundstage.

I'm watching a movie currently and the voices are muddy, realized I didn't have my other set plugged in ... my other set has zero bass, so I've gone from one end to the other.

You're basically purchasing an $80-$100 sub with some throw away satellites.

These are going back.

Experience: 90 Days
good sound and well made
pricematch available
great subwoofer and clear sound from the satellite speakers well made and look good

Experience: 1 Days
Rich Bass and incredible sound for a $100 speaker system
Good looking
great price
only real con is the glossy back on the satellites but thats not a real biggie
system outputs greats sound and fills my whole suite really nicely, and has a smooth base tone to it. At first I was reluctant to purchase but i don't think ill look backThis review was modfied by poster w 11-01-13 03:47 AM

Very cheap set with great sound for the price point. Makes a great set to use with a TV, sound is clear and the base is all right but not amazing.
We do not have the set play loud as it distorts sound and crackling will come up.
For this price point I'd highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a set to pair with a tv or pc but doesn't need a set of speakers that would play loud or have a lot of base.

good base, good price, good quality
appearance isnt the greatest, the speakers look ok. mids and highs are average if you play to loud the bass over powers the mids and highs
good 2.1 system for the price. ncix has gotten my business because there prices have been a good amount cheaper then other retailers

Experience: 6 Months
-Good sound
-Takes up less space then a 5.1 system
-Quite loud
-Good bass for a computer set up
-None that I can think of
I bought these to replace an aging Creative 5.1 setup that I was sick of trying to make room for. These sit nicely on my desk on either side of the LED and have some really good sound to them for a 2.1 setup.

Experience: 1 Years
great sound for the price
headphone plug-in hidden behind satellite speaker (very minor issue)
For the price, you can't do much better. With a little EQ tweaking through whatever player you use, the sound is very clear and can be turned up LOUD! :)

I'm giving a 5* rating for the value/quality. It's not the best you can buy, but for $100 you won't do much better.

Experience: 1 Days
Cheap (got them for 49.99)
Subwoofer provides nice deep bass
Bass control is on the speaker
One-way speaker design hurts the performance of the satellites
I've been looking for a budget computer speaker system for the bedroom and have gone through 3 sets now and settled on these - not because they sounded the best, but simply because they offered the best value at the price I paid.

First, the sub is surprisingly pretty good. With just a 4" down-firing driver and 6.5" non-powered passive radiator in a fairly small sealed box with just 21w going to it, it hits pretty hard and can go pretty low. I actually turned it down from the 12 o'clock position that it was on to about 10-11 o'clock as I felt it was overpowering everything else. The sub in the Edifier M3300SF (one of the sets I've purchased) has a 6.5" driver with 30w, but it was a little underwhelming despite it's specs.

Each satellite has two identical 2" dome drivers, one facing the front and one facing the back for a "3D sound" experience, but I think that's rather gimmicky and doesn't really add anything in most cases.
The lack of tweeter makes the sound kind of flat in the mid-high frequencies. If Logitech would've went with a 2-way design with a dedicated tweeter, it would make the sound more dynamic and the high frequencies wouldn't sound as muffled.

As usual with Logitech, the build quality is good. It's just too bad that Logitech continues to go with one-way speaker designs as it would turn this set from good to great. These are not audiophile speakers by any means, but they should sound good enough for most people.

Other sets I've purchased were the Cyber Acoustics 3602 and the Edifier M3300SF. I returned the CA 3602 speakers because there was rattling noise in the left satellite, so the build quality didn't seem quite as good as Logitech or Edifier.
Overall, I preferred the sound of the Edifier M3300SF, but they cost $22 more. If they were even 10-15 more, I would've kept the Edifiers instead.

Build quality - 4.5/5
Sound quality - 3.75/5
Value (at the price I paid) - 5/5
Overall - 4/5 (not based on average)
