5 out of 5 eggsDont know what anyone could whine about.

Pros: Used this setup for years, absolutely kick hind-end !!!!! Games, movies, music all there and kickin!! I never worry about the neighbors, (don't like em anyway), seldom used over 60% volume. Almost cried when I passed these down, only to be replaced by z5500, but that's another review.

Cons: Out of the box, the wires are a little short, but that's a quick fix.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter technical issue, I'm happy

Pros: Speaker produce excellent quality, especially at their price point. System is way too powerful - never need to turn it up over halfway. That is a good thing in my book.

Cons: Prone to technical problems... if I'd done my research I might have picked up a different model. I was getting a sound like wind blowing across a microphone... even when they were unplugged from the computer and power!! Plus they were picking up cellphones (they'd crackle right before a cellphone would ring). Turns out that this model has a common problem with the control pad. I had to ship the control pad back to Logitech, leaving me without speakers at all for a week or two. They shipped an entirely new speaker set out. I ended up throwing a sub and set of speakers away because I didn't have the control panel... seemed pretty wasteful but the new set worked perfectly so I let it slide.

Other Thoughts: Will need to be equalized... but geez.... unless you're deaf, all speakers need this. If you're running these speakers you've got a good quality sound card already, so there's how you do it. If you don't have a good sound card, buy one! They can run as little as $30 these days if you don't buy the newest SoundBlaster.

5 out of 5 eggsLoud, powerful, and excellent value

Pros: These speaker come loud out of the box. Lows are especially crisp and the range is good. Combined with a good sound card, music sounds like a live concert. Games come alive.

Cons: Lacks digital inputs. Lacks built in decoder.

Other Thoughts: I own the older brother as well, the Z-5500 and this one lives up to the quality of the former. Same feeling. It gets just as loud and there is no reason to spend more, unless you need the built in decoder and slighter monstrous subwoofer. Quality is the same--top notch.

Highly commended.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: Great highs, smooth lows, quality appearance, and easy to hook up. I had the whole thing out of the box and connected in less than 45 minutes. The bass is absolutely AMAZING. It knocks pictures off the kitchen walls two rooms away at will, but is easily adjustable for toned-down use. The satellite speakers look great and feel of high quality craftsmanship. They also are easily adjustable and are wall mountable for placing them in innovative positions. The remote may be kinda cheap feeling, but it is VERY functional and easy to use. The sub is large, professional looking, and it shakes every inch of my room.

Cons: Of course the speaker wires are VERY short out of the box (extensions are available at your local shop). The remote is kinda cheap feeling, wired, and ugly as I have stated above. The system as a whole requires quite a bit of tuning through your sound card or MBs graphic equalizer to get it sounding right. Also, there is s slight amount of popping/static in the satellites when adjusting volume, but understandable as the whole system is slammed with amplification.

Other Thoughts: I have this system connected through my Asus M2N-Sli Deluxe MBs on-board audio and it sounds phenomenal. It looks great and blows away my RCA 7.1 home theater system. I can't even imagine how excellent it would sound connected through a good sound card. I purchased this system for well under 150$ from an alternative website including shipping, so I would have to say it is one of the best investments I have made to date. I just wish Newegg would have had some in stock even though I would have had to pay a little more because it took the other website 9 days to ship the speakers. I love Newegg's shipping. Buy this system if you can still find it in stock anywhere, and don't be upset if it sounds sub par out of the box. Tune it to your liking and it will blow you away!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat for the first year, no doubt about that part.

Pros: I love these, Logitech is the king of sub woofers on PC speakers and I listen mostly to rap so... the overpowering bass is really kind of a plus. The entire set can be so loud, even when I'm alone and feel like blasting music as loud as my ears can take it the volume still isn't maxed. Thats always a huge plus in my book. I did have some of the satellites mounted for a while, its a pretty decent and easy setup. That big heat sink does its job as long as you give it space away from the wall.

Cons: The exact same problem that has happened to this and my last two pairs of Logitech's speakers and two sets bought by a friend: THEY DIE AFTER A SINGLE YEAR, NO MATTER WHAT. The connections in the back get shorted and eventually lose all connectivity, I honestly don't care how it happens because its simply unacceptable. The cheap Logitech ones do it, the expensive ones do it too. Luckily with this set, I still have both rears and managed to just swap the plug ins on my sound card around to put front sound through the rear speakers, so it is still a somewhat operational 2.1 system (I should make note that the center went out too... that sucks when it comes to vocals in anything involving rock music) At this point I have a system I paid $150 for (sad the price hasn't changed after this many years to be honest) and it sounds about as good as a $30 dollar set you could buy in a retail store.

Only two eggs for this, and simply because all these pairs went out before their warranty did.

Other Thoughts: Its simply disappointing, Logitech used to be so good but I even got a mouse from them last summer that broke in a month. I actually look forward to a possible M$ buyout, because when its on the hardware end they tend to do it right (they are my dedicated mouse maker now, i love em)

The only product I will buy from Logitech again is a second G-15 keyboard for when my current one breaks, but its sticking up like the true Logitech products once did so that should be a while. I give kudos where its due, but like I said 5 confirmed short outs from the same source just shoots this good deal on speakers in the foot. Spend another hundred dollars on any other brand, you'll likely be happier two years down the road.

I am aware that these are still under warranty, but if its happened to five consecutive speaker sets what are they gonna do? Make these last one year more and let me just watch them short out again? Next time I'm digging deeper in my wallet...

5 out of 5 eggsMe love them looooong time!

Pros: Good sound, Many control features, LOUD, awesome for gaming.
This system rattles the windows when I play the latest FPS games. Great Bang for the buck. Nice Price and Superfast shipping.

Cons: Limited wall/ceiling mount options.
Not good for music if you are an "OLDE" audio geek, but I got them for gaming only, so that's just FYI.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Worth It

Pros: I have owned the Z-5300 system for almost 4 years now and still have no plans of replacing and let me just say that I definately don't go easy on them. I use these speakers on full volume on a daily basis and they are still amazing me with clarity and volume of the sound. The fidelity of the sound recreated by this system is simply incredible.

Cons: The cords are a bit short out of the box but extensions were not hard to find.

The control pod could be improved.

And it would make me feel better if there was a fan on the amp as it gets rather hot while being used at high volume for long periods of time. I wouldn't recommend putting the sub in a tight space as it creates quite a bit of heat.

Other Thoughts: I have the Z-5300 set up through a Sound Blaster X-Fi Sound Processor.

All of My CD's are in a WMA Lossless format
