>>If you're sick of the shallow, tinny audio quality from your laptop speakers but don't want to invest in a full-piece, 3-piece computer set, the Logitech Z205 laptop speakers might be your ideal solution. I'm Justin Yu, Associate Editor for CNET.com where we're going to take a quick look at the Logitech Z205 laptop speakers. It's very easy to setup since it draws power and audio from the same USB port. There's no drivers or installation discs. All you have to do is plug it into your computer and you're set to go. There's even a spring-loaded hinge on the bottom here so you can attach it to the top of your display and keep in mind that $40 speakers aren't going to put out the most impressive sound but we were generally satisfied with the audio quality and you can certainly crank up the volume much higher than you would on your laptop. The speakers obviously don't have a subwoofer so bass heavy tracks can reach distortion at high volumes but DVD audio and more balanced music genres like jazz or rock sound great. You can find plenty more details in our full review on CNET.com but that's going to do it for me. I'm Justin Yu this is the Logitech Z205 portable speaker and that sounds good to me.
The $250 Logitech UE Mobile Boombox's sculpted construction, logical simplicity, and booming sound earn this device a solid recommendation for music lovers shopping for an audio solution to use in and out of the home.
The Logitech Pure-Fi Mobile is a versatile portable speaker system that's an excellent option for mobile-music-device users who value a compact design and multiple connection options over stellar audio quality.
Logitech wins again with the Wireless Boombox for iPad, delivering a speaker that sounds great and won't empty your wallet. We recommend it for stationary indoor and outdoor use, but portable music lovers should keep shopping.
With its durable outer shell, multiple connectivity options, and wide range of sound, the Logitech Wireless Speaker Z515 makes a great sidekick for your next backyard BBQ or picnic party. However, if portability isn't your primary concern, you can trade size for sound quality with the Creative D100, another Bluetooth speaker that costs less than the Logitech.
While we weren't blown away by their sound, the Logitech Z-5s' combination of a simple, clean design, USB connectivity, and some basic remote operation make them a decent value in the sub-$100 PC speaker space.
The Logitech mm50 Portable Speakers for iPod are useful and affordable--and they sound good, too.
Logitech's Speaker System Z320 offers decent but unspectacular sound at a reasonable price point.
The Logitech Pure-Fi Elite stands above the iPod-speaker competition with a can't-miss combination of excellent design, great sound, and a low price.
Logitech's Pure-Fi Anytime is a good choice for anyone in the market for a basic, affordable iPhone/iPod-friendly clock radio--so long as you're not a stickler for sound quality.
We'd have a much easier time recommending the Logitech Z520's average sound quality and lack of features if it didn't cost $130. We'd rather point you toward the Logitech Z523 system that offers best-in-class sound quality (and a subwoofer to boot) at an affordable price.
Logitech Z205 Review
