Quality 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers for your PC Review with images

AdvantagesLow price, Great build quality, Sound quality, Looks stylish

DisadvantagesNot many controls, Rear speakers not loud enough, No digital-In audio

"I'm reviewing the Logitech X-530 speaker set, which is a 5.1 Surround Sound speaker set for your computer. The X-530 consists of a set of five small speakers, known as 'satellites', and subwoofer, which is the larger unit that produces the bass. This is where the term '5.1 Surround' comes from. The "5" represents the satellites and the ".1" represents the subwoofer. I've had the speakers for a month now and I think they're great. Home theatre, ..." Read review

Good Quality Speakers!

Advantages140watt maximum output, good sound quality, can be wall mounted, rather cheap

Disadvantagesnot wireless so the wires could get in the way, no remote control.

"I bought these Logitech P.C theatre speakers a couple of months ago for my University room. You might think that is over the top but I totally love my music and couldn't help it. I bought the speakers from P.C world for only £36.00. How did I get them that cheap? Well I reserved the speakers online for £39.99 then I went into store with my 10% off voucher and got them for £36.00. This was a total bargain as they are being sold for £74.99 in currys ..."

X-530

AdvantagesPrice/quality, look

Disadvantagessensitive to interference

", Most people aim at good quality sound in PC's. Often good sound card is not enough and better speakers must be bought. That means spending more money for good stuff, or less for cheaper brand. Not necessarily when considering Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers. First some esential tech data: Total pow RMS : 70 Watts Total peak pow: 140 watts Cable lenght: center:160cm front: 140cm/180cm rear: 450cm Installation is as simple as possible ..." Read review

Fething 'uge Bass Speaker

Advantages Cheap and brilliant sound quality

DisadvantagesCables far too short, trouble with rear speakers

"Logitech speakers, 5.1 surround. The name tells it all. They are the cream of speakers. Never experienced surround sound? Should be shot (Bit drastic actually). Never fear, Logitech to the rescue with this relatively cheap 5.1 system. Not the best on the market arguably, but it still serves its purpose. Coupled with a high quality sound card, you'll not know the difference. Priced at £30-50 these are at the bottom end of surround sound prices. ..." Read review

Sounds Good To Me!

AdvantagesGreat sound quality, wall mountable

DisadvantagesToo many wires

"I am a very minimalistic person and I also love music. I absolutely hate having CD's, as I feel they take up far too much room, especially if I had every single album that I actually own. I got rid of all my CD's and my Hi-Fi a few years ago and decided to stick all my music on external storage drives instead, all my music on one little box. Laptop speakers arn't very loud so I needed something that was going to pack a healthy punch, something that ..." Read review

Logitech X-530 5.1 Surround Sound - great set up for the price

AdvantagesGreat sound, easy to assemble

DisadvantagesNeed to pay extra for external sound card (if you don't have 5.1 built in)

"I bought this surround sound system from amazon.co.uk for £39.99. The X350 set includes 4 'satellite' speakers (each 7.4 Watts), a centre channel speaker (15.5 Watts) and the subwoofer (25 Watts) - these amount to a 70 watts RMS, with a maximum output power of 140 Watts. Being at University, I was watching films and playing music through my laptop, but needed something better than the weak laptop speakers. This was a great choice at a price that ..." Read review

An OK sound, but a very bad design.

AdvantagesSound is OK, looks good, not too high price.

Disadvantagesbad design, Volume and power controls on FR speaker, cord too short.

"The speakers have an OK sound but nothing spectacular. The main problem I had was the bad design. The way it is set up, the volume and power controls are in the front right speaker, not a dongle which sits on the desk. The master speaker only has a 6 foot cord so the Front Right speaker has to be mounted within 6 feet of the sub-woofer, which it plugs into. And the sub-woofer has a pretty short cord to the PC as well so you really have to play with ..." Read review

Logitech X-530 - amazing sound quality

Advantagessound quality, pivoting stands

Disadvantageswires

"This product completed my home entertainment system and for the price of only £60 it was excellent value for money, first off the sound quality is fantastic as the surround sound is perfectly balanced and the sub woofer is absolutely incredible personaly i only have the bass set to half because it shakes the floor, this level of base may be ideal for some people and is easily adjustable from the back of the sub woofer. the system has four wired satellite ..."

Excellent Quality, great value 5.1 speakers

AdvantagesBig bass, excellent sound quality, compatible with PS2, Xbox etc

Disadvantagescables too short, only plays as 2.1 if you want mp3 compatibility

"I brought the Logitech X-530 speakers 7 months ago and do not regret it. They look nice, they look a lot more than £40 and come to think of it, they sound more than £40 pounds as well. When I was deciding whether to get these I thought they didn't look that powerful, but I was 100% wrong I lifted the subwoofer out of the box and it looked a lot more powerful than it does in the pictures (heavy too). I set them up, booted up the pc then I put a film ..." Read review

some good things come small

Advantagesvery good budget system

Disadvantagesno digital input

"I currently have a Z5500 on my pc, while I have a X-530 on my TV set. Immediate concerns: no digital input; MUST have a 5.1 audio source for all speakers to play. Most DVD players have 5.1 audio output, but they are RCA connectors, and this system has 3 3.5mm headphone jacks for inputs - translation: RadioShack is waiting for you to come and get the RCA/3.5mm headphone adapter, which I was not able to find. Oh, one thing no one has mentioned ..." Read review

X 530 PC Speakers

AdvantagesGood quality sound

DisadvantagesLots of wires for this one

"...can be bought of the Logitech website). The controls on the speakers are also easy to use there are three main buttons, switches one is volume, one is bass level and the other is the on and off button. The volume and on and off is located on the right front speaker and the bass level is located on the sub woofer. There is also a headphone socket located on the right front speaker. The final thing I am going to say about these speakers is the ..." Read review

Logitech X530 5.1 Speaker System

AdvantagesVolume, Sound quality, design, price

DisadvantagesEasily damaged if dropped

"Had these speakers for around 6 months now, not one problem, the sound quality and volume is absolutely amazing!! Never taught so much sound could come out such little speakers, and ever better, with amazing quality!!! The only downside to the speakers is the material used to cover the actual speaker, very stilish but if they are dropped or anything is grazed along the side, the cloth like material is easily ripped. But after all, i dont think ..." Read review

Excellent

AdvantagesAmazing sound for a good price and easy set up

DisadvantagesMinor difficulties in configuration

"I bought these speakers to be used with my new computer a few months back now and have not ever had second thought. I use them mainly to play music but also heavy duties such as computer gaming. They were easy to set up with more that adequate instruction. It took me a while to configure them to work with the computer, however I feel this was more to do with my incompetency than anything else. When I did get them working I was truly amazed by ..."

The Logitech x-530 sound system gets the job done.

Advantageseasy to set up, good quality, nice desing

Disadvantagescollect dust quickly

"Although I got this speaker set from a friends so it did not come with any set up guides it was easy to install. It just a matter of plugin what i did not like is that i would always have one speaker not functioning . I'm not sure if it was my computers sound hardware and drives or the speakers however this one speaker not working did no matter the speakers sounded phenomenal for the price. the one thing that bothered me was how much dust they can ..."
