    Got these on sale at Best Buy for $9.99 and It works beautifully on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop. I primarily play class games on emulators, watch Netflix, listen to music and talk radio on iHeart Radio. If you are were looking for a quality experience for a home theater setup or a hardcore gaming scenario, these are not for you , they are for the basics and use within reasonable audio levels for comfortable listening. The only thing that may bother some people is the wide angle AC Adapter, it strongly resembles a phone charger I have in my drawer. May not be adaptable to all surge protector models because of the plug. Have no idea if you can replace the adapter to conform to your plugs or not but I did not have that problem sooooo...... It was so cheap to purchase I wanted to purchase another pair for my Netbook but they did not have anymore quantity in the store. If you have bad quality speakers that need upgrading, get these while they are at this price. Id say that if I paid full price it would even be worth it too.

    These speakers by no means are over the top incredible, but if pure tired of listening to music; watching shows; or playing computer games through your headphones these will suffice your needs at a good price point. I’d say these are “home starter” speakers. I say that because they have an average form and function for whatever the use is. These don’t carry crazy bass capabilities for music, but just enough. They don’t have that irritating underlying static you might have experienced with your older speakers during quiet scenes in movies or video game cutscenes. These speakers are also relatively small and take up very little desk space. I don’t really know what else you can ask for in these speakers especially for the price you pay for them. It kind of feels like I ripped off Logitech for getting a pair of decent speakers for such a low price.

    Good quality sound for the price

    Bought these for a new Mac desktop i just got. Just needed some external sound to listen to music once in a while and general internet searching of videos and such. My son uses a program for teaching and needs sound for it. Didn't want to spend a lot as i usually use a high quality headset and didnt need crazy good speakers. These have great sound quality, not a lot of bass but good mids and highs. Tey are decently loud, enough to fill up two rooms with sound. Overall great buy and worth it. My negative was for power hookup, would be nice if it had an option for usb power instead of AC only but i would figure they wouldnt be as good/loud if it was only USB power so im ok with it. The box says 5w of power and i compared them to the insignia 8w ones with a sub and these were almost twice as loud. Don't go by whats on the box because brand makes a big difference in quality and sound. If you need some basic speakers and are not a big sound quality person these are great. Also movies sound pretty good on them too. No real complaints.

    While shopping for gaming speakers that would not break the bank and still deliver amazing sound quality, all I saw were speakers ranging from $80+. My son surprised me after I had agreed to spend $100 on speakers, he picked these for waaaaaayyyy less then $100. We had tested other display models which sounded pretty crappy. I figured my son didn’t have high expectations and I would be saving a ton of money so why not. Oh Boy! What a surprise I got when we hooked up the speakers to the computer. They might as well cost $100. Lol No subwoofer needed. The base, the sound and the size made this an awesome buy. I would buy these again in a heart beat.

    Great Deal But Whiny Power Adapter

    ***The high frequency whine some people are mentioning is coming from the switched-mode power adapter NOT from the speakers.*** The speakers themselves sound great for casual use. These aren't for serious music listening or an immersive media experience. You can enable Loudness Equalization by double clicking the speakers in your "playback devices" menu on your computer to get a little more volume out of them but they're totally usable out of the box. Even half volume is plenty loud enough for typical desk top usage where you're only a couple of feet away from the speakers. The one star is taken off for the power adapter. The power adapter is super cheap and the coil doesn't have any glue on it to dampen the vibrations causing the whine. You can just get a replacement 10v 0.7A adapter for a couple of bucks.

    Annoying feedback

    I got these speakers because I wanted an external speaker other than my monitor speakers. For the price, it was a great deal. I constantly need to listen to audio whether it's through what I'm editing, or casual browsing. Since the speakers always need to be on, I have to deal with the terrible feedback that comes from it. I noticed the feedback about 2 weeks after the speakers were hooked up. The only way I can avoid it is if my music/audio is loud. But when I'm not listening to something or if I'm listening to it quietly, the feedback is there and annoying. Also the headphone jack is not compatible with my headphones, which is weird. I have Altec Lansing. If you're looking for cheap, these speakers are perfect. But if you're looking for quality, run from these. I'll be upgrading soon.

    Poor quality speakers

    I bought these speakers for my new pc. I just wanted something for basic sound, so my expectations were realistic given their price. However, I was still disappointed. The speakers actually sounded ok. except for the fact that there was a loud buzzing in the background. If you played with the wire where the speakers plug into the computer, you could get the buzzing to stop, but it would begin again as soon as you let go of the wire. Perhaps the pair I purchased was defective. I do not know. I did not want to take a chance on another pair. I returned my speakers to Best Buy and used an old pair my son had in the house that he was not using. They work great.

    Good Basic Stereo Speakers

    When I made this purchase, I was looking for something to replace my very old speakers (Logitech speakers w/sub). Focused my attention only on Logitech because my previous Logitech speakers, after many yrs, never failed to perform. All I needed was a basic set of descent sounding stereo speakers...... I'm not a gamer. The only minor inconvenience is the way these speakers turn on & off. The volume knob is also the on/off . I would prefer a push-button on/off switch, separate from the volume control. A push-button on/off switch would be easier to operate than trying to turn that little knob; also, there would be no need to readjust the volume every time the speakers are turned on. For the price, these speakers are a good buy.

    More than adequate for business use

    These are a great set of basic speakers. Got a new computer for the office that didn't include speakers. Didn't need anything fancy or high-end as don't use them to listen to music, videos or for gaming. These work just fine for webinars and an occasional YouTube video. Easy plug-and-play installation. Easy to adjust sound level. Sound is well balanced between the two speakers. No hissing or crackling. All cables/wires are of adequate length. The speakers are a bit larger and boxier than I would have liked so do take up some space if placed on a desk. It's not a lot but enough to make them a bit difficult to place out of sight. Ended up just setting them on top of the new computer tower. Works just fine like that.

    I purchased a new monitor & had to purchase new speakers. The original speakers I purchased didn't sound all that great, AND had very flimsy material covering the speakers. I exchanged these for the LOGITECH which not only have a metal covering over the speaker, but actually sound better. Since I don't listen to my music, or watch TV programs with this set-up. these speakers sound just fine. But if you DO listen to your music, or watch TV programs on your computer, you will probably be better off getting better speakers as these do not have a lot of base/bass. But just for regular computer sounds, they are more than adequate.

    This review isn't for the intended use of the speakers, so for that I can't truly give a fair rating, however, for my own purposes the speakers are great. I don't have them hooked up to a PC, but instead I have them connected to the guest room's tv. For those not in the know, modern tvs tend to have mediocre sound as the speakers are in the rear and don't really face the viewer. Instead of buying a soundbar for an average size tv (32"), I picked these up and the sound is much better than before. Like I said before, they do exactly what I need them to do.

    This Logitech stereo is an inexpensive and effective solution to the problem of impossible-to-hear built-in audio systems on many computers. Pros: (1) Price is low and fair; (2) Simple set-up---plug it into your computer (the plug powers the device, no power cord needed), turn it on, adjust volume, leave it on; (3) Small desk footprint; (4) Excellent spoken word reproduction, fair music reproduction; (5) Simple volume adjustment on device itself and/or computer taskbar control icon. Cons: None other than it may not meet the demands of a more sophisticated audiophile. With that only exception, it is just the system for everyday use. Thanks, hope this helps.

    I bought a pair of these speakers for my wife's computer a few years ago (not at Best Buy) because they seemed to be right for the money. Her set has worked & sounded great up to today. The loaned speakers I had on my newer computer were old technology & needed replacing, so I looked to see if Logitech Z130 was still on the market. I found it was and found my local Best Buy had the lowest price on sale so was happy I could get a pair for myself and at a great price. A snap to hook up. I am very pleased with the sound quality, adjustable volume knob, on-light & available ear phone jack. They take up little space but put out solidly for their size. Highly recommended.

    I have been burned in the past by inexpensive, low-quality speakers. However, the Logitech Z130 speaker system has not disappointed at all. I purchased them for my PC at home; they have a nice sleek design, and are small enough that they don't take up much space on my desk. Most importantly, they emit an excellently clear, high-quality stereo sound that I did not expect from such a reasonably priced product. I'm very pleased with these speakers and would recommend them to anyone looking for quality speakers that don't break the bank.

    My old Harman speakers finally died after 10 years. I loved those speakers. When these went on sale, I picked up a set for my desktop. I really didn't have high expectations since these were so cheap. But I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. As a previous reviewer said, they sounded almost like like AM radio. I mean, sound is crisp clear, but there is no bass. However, they were easy to set up -- just plug and play. And for that price, I can't really complain. If you really love listening to music, I wouldn't recommend these, but if you're like me and only need music in the background while you're working, then definitely pick up a pair when they go on sale.

    Excellent value; good audio in a compact package

    I wanted to acquire a set of stereo speakers for use with my laptop computer at my workplace. I wanted decent audio quality in a small package size and at a low price, which wouldn't put me out much money if the speakers got damaged or stolen from my desk. Overall, these speakers provide everything I was looking for, and at a $14.99 sale price, they represent an excellent value. The audio quality is good enough for my purposes, and the speaker units do not take up much room on my desktop. Since I just purchased these, I cannot comment on their long-term reliability, but my experience with other Logitech products has been good so far, so I think they will be fine for many years.

    Don't unplug too much

    Bought these over a year ago and they worked pretty good. I used them mostly at work till I had to move my cube and that is when the problem happened. After I unplugged and plugged them back in, there was a whining noise coming from the power adapter. I brought them home and plugged them in and the same thing. Its not too noticeable if you have the plug under a table or behind something. If you don't want to notice it at all, you may need to turn the sound up a bit. Sound is good but that whining just kills it if you forget to turn them off or have long pauses of silence. Just don't move them to much and it shouldn't produce the problem I ran into.

    I bought a record player and wanted some fun, budget friendly, speakers until I can updated to different ones. I stopped into Best Buy and found these guys right away. I was hesitant at first, I've bought cheap speakers before with horrendous sound system, but I went ahead and wanted to try them out. I told myself, if they don't work, I'll return them and purchase the ideal set I wanted online for $250. Well when I got home, I played them and WOW they're super loud. They also sound great! I was really impressed, for speakers under $20, they're very impressive. I totally recommend.

    The Logitech Z130's are great small speakers for the price. I needed small speakers because space was at a premium. These were the ones recommended by the Best Buy sales person and they didn't disappoint. The sound is great, much, much, better than the very poor speakers on my monitor and more than adequate for my needs. Plenty of volume, I also like the front mounted on/off/ volume control and audio/headphone jack. If you are just looking for a good set of stereo speakers for your monitor, TV, or laptop at a very good price I think that you will be pleased with the Logitech Z130 speakers.

    The staff member at the store let us test them before we bought them because the packaging was already damaged and open. They have a much better sound than I thought they would for the cheap price that they are! We bought them and he gave us a discount because we bought the ones with the damaged packaging. Brought them home and my grandmother plugged them into her macbook to hear my brother's orchestra performance video and it sounded great! Could actually hear the different instruments and it got pretty loud without any crackling or bass disruption! Great buy for those of us who aren't made of money.
