I recently purchased a set of Logitech Z313 speakers from the local PC World store which cost me £39.99 at the time. My understanding is these speakers can now be purchased a little cheaper at around £30 from a variety of retailers such as Comet, Amazon and other electrical stores or music shops.
The Packaging: They come in a reasonable sized box which i personally find quite eye-catching. White and Dark Green cube box with an image of the speakers themselves and the name of the product clearly displayed. The box also contains technical spec of the product which is always helpful for the more technical gifted people out there.
Set Up: The set up was very easy. Simply plug and play software means you simply plug in the power cables and the speakers into the back of your machine and away you go. There wasn't any software installations etc making them ideal for people who arent confident on a computer.
Speakers: The speakers consist of 2 speakers and a sub-woofer unit. Black in colour with a shiny silver rim around the speakers i'd say there quite easy on the eye and sensibly sized unlike some excessively large speaks i see when shopping around. The sub-woofer is also black in colour and cube like shaped. The volume is controlled by a attached contol with all the usual features expected such as on/off and volume controls. This is easy to use and takes no expertise at all to master.
Sounds Quality: I'd say the speakers offer great sound quality for the price and are surprisingly loud for their size. Even at high volume the sounds quality is still pretty decent and with the subwooofer can be made into quite a bass-heavy sound station to the annoyance of everyone else nearby me.
The Good: I'd say these speakers are excellent for their size and price and are a good looking speaker set with their slekk modern design and looks. Their easy to set up and use.
The Bad: I personally dont like the control. It's not that its bad and certainly not difficult, but i dont think its very well designed. I'd prefer a wireless remote control or controls on the speakers themselves. The sub-woofer is quite large and awkward if you have limited space.
Overall, i'd recommend these speakers to anyone who is looking for affordable decent speakers for home use. These make great noise and the sound quality is really good. For £30 you cant go wrong really.
