Pros Nice sounding, especially for the price. Minimum cable mess. Nice looking design. Omnidirectional. Remote included.
Cons Somewhat lacking in bass. Not tons of volume.
Summary I was looking for a small set of 2.0 pc speakers at a reasonable price. These fit my needs almost perfectly., being omni-directional, small with no power supply. There's not an abundance of volume but thats's understandable, and the sound quality is very nice. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.
"Over rated"on by susancooper
Pros Easy USB plug & play. Nice finish.
Cons NO tech support - remote doesn't work - not a lot of volume improvement over the free speakers that came with my HP desktop PC
Summary Overall I paid a lot for a very little improvement in sound quality & volume.
Pros Clear sound and convenience of use through USB plug and in-jack for sound in back.
Cons Can't unplug and plug in computer, at whim, without activating speakers again through icon.
Summary For the price of $60, it's a great deal and is much easier to move around due to their 2-piece-only set up. Should get for laptops.
"Sleek look"on by threekoins
Pros USB connectivity
Cons Not enough bass
Remote doesn't work that well
Summary These have a very nice sleek look to them and what attracted me to buy them. The sound decent and works well with games and music while I'm at my computer. The USB connection is another nice little feature. For the price they are worth buying.
Pros The design is what really sold me on the product. I also got a very good deal because Best Buy had them on sale. They have very good sound and are loud. can turn speakers off by using "quick launch" buttons on HP laptop.
Cons No volume control on the speaker itself. remote "music note" button only works with iTunes, windows media player, or one other option which you can select. I wish there was a way to make all sound go through the z-5 speakers.
Summary very good for the price. remote is very cool. small with great sound so they do not take up much room at all.
