Pros
Got these on sale for ~$120 dollars with tax and I must say it was a bargain. Sub-woofer is pretty strong and sound quality has great clarity.
Cons
It comes with a small remote, which does not have very advanced tuning options for sound. There is no way to turn of the lights on the sub, which bothers some people.
Summary
Overall I got this for a steal for the $100 sale price. For $100 this is a five star purchase without question. However I would not purchase this product for the full $250. Only complaint is you can not tweak the sound as much as I would like, but the sound quality is great overall. For $100 this is an excellent buy, but at $250 I would only give it 3/ 3.5 stars. If you have been looking for new computer speakers and find these on sale, go for it, if they are not there is better for that kind of money in my opinion.

Pros
remote, color: black, batteries included
Cons
no power, sound is crap, woofer is too big, cables for satellite speakers too short,
Summary
The best ever Pc sound system i had buy is the Klipsch Promedia 2.1. I buy this one for my tv system in the basement. When i buy it, it was 89.99$, so i'm thinking 'it is a very good deal', wrong, too expensive at this price too for the very poor quality and power of the sound. I have an system of Edifier s330d too, and it is very good compare to this one. My first recommendation is the Klipsch Promedia 2.1.

Pros
Solid and heavy subwoofer.
Cons
Excessive treble.
Speaker cables are too short.
No way to turn off the annoying light ring.
Summary
I got these speakers on sale for $89.99. They sound decent for that price but they are NOT worth the regular price of $249.98! It takes some adjusting to make them sound so they will not hurt your ears (turn up bass and turn down treble). Also there is no way to turn off that annoying light ring around the volume knob. All you can do is switch it to a less annoying mode, but that only can be done from the remote control.

Pros
these things can get LOUD
clear full sound
stylish big speakers
Cons
lose remote = lose functions
proprietary cables
expected more bass at lower volume
Summary
It was time to replace my aging 6 year old logitech z640's, and seeing as how i only used two channels on the 5.1 speaker system maybe 99% of the time i decided to go with a more desk space saving 2.1 speaker. Overall i am happy with my purchase, although i dislike how you need to really pump up the volume before the sub starts to pound. buyer beware: there is no way to turn off the flamboyant orange light ring, the best you can do is change the setting from a raving lightshow to a constant glow, this can only be done with the remote though i've checked. If you lose the remote be prepared to get the sanity driven right out of you with endless strobe lighting.

Pros
Loud, Can produce nice balanced sound with tweaking.
Cons
Have to balance carefully to avoid distortion
Summary
These speakers do exactly what I wanted them to, there are mixed reviews about the quality of the sound, so hopefully I can clarify. You really need to pay attention to the settings on your connected devices, and the current mode on this device which can only easily be set using the remote as there is no display, just a treble and a bass button on the front, and a patterned stobe that the lighting artorund the volume dial indicates. My opinion is to read the manual quickly to configure the device so you are personally pleased with the sound. I know I am now. :)

Pros
plenty of bass if that's what you're into
handy remote
bass & treble control
Cons
can't disable sub-woofer (can't turn it down fully)
price when not on sale
proprietary satellite speaker connectors limit wire length
Summary
Got these on surprise sale $99 - a good price. I would not pay more tho.

Sound quality seems pretty decent to me, tho I'm no audiophile. Have been listening to classical, pop/rock, etc.

Tons of bass potential if that's what you're into, and that can be dialed back to relatively little bass. However, even with the bass dialed back as much as possible the sub still puts out a bit too much for late nite use in a quiet building setting. My other old Logitech 2.1 system lets me zero out the sub completely which is a big bonus in my books.

As mentioned in other reviews, the speakers connect to the sub using proprietary connectors, so although a person could splice in a section of wire if they wanted/needed a long speaker run, it's not as simple as if they were bare wires.

The remote has separate controls for volume, treble, bass, which is very handy IMO. It's nice not to have to go over to the sub (controls are on the sub) to change that stuff.

Summary: Are they on sale? Are you cool with not being able to turn off the sub completely? Looking for a decent 2.1 system? Buy these!

Cons

Summary

Pros
The subwoofer is solid and heavy. The satellite speakers are little on the light side but well constructed.
Cons
Very flat base... No “kick” to the lower frequencies. Distortion starts at mid volume.
Summary
I can't imagine paying full retail for these. Thank goodness they were on sale for $99. The sting still hurts though. I though I could replace my really old Cambridge Sound Works CSW1500 4.1 system that's currently hooked up as a 2.1 system… but I was wrong. I have Sony speakers and paid about the same retail price, but these new ones are truly disappointing.

Pros
Not much. The sub sounds ok.
Cons
Excessive treble.
Summary
These speakers are rated at 300W, but on the back of the sub it says 65W.

It's hard to match the treble to the bass. The satellites sound harsh. The sub is ok. I think the z-2300 is a lot better, I don't know why the other reviews say this product is so good.

The amp has special plugs for the speakers to plug in. The speakers are pretty light.

Pros
Good bass and tremble control
Comes with remote
Nice and loud
Cons
Haven't found one yet..
Summary
What can I say, I've been looking for a review for this product also..no luck so i decided to just give it a shot.
I would get this product over the Logitech z-2300's anytime!!
