"easy to use, great sound, and sleek design"4.5 starson by nicks328
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.
