      Great value speakers, packing good sound quality at a top price.

      As a video editor and film enthusiast, I need a good sound system at the worst of times. Admittedly I compromised greatly to get these speakers at a budget price, with a view to portability. But whilst these may not be the powerhouses of more expensive models, Logitech has a quality bargain product in the S220.

      First off, the sound quality is surprisingly good, given the £17 price tag. I have used cheap speakers before, and they often come with cheap tinny sound, with a buzzing undertone. With the S220, there is good clarity and not a hint of buzzing.

      The speakers are handily sized, light and easy to pack away and transport. The subwoofer is similarly light, if (obviously) larger, and can easily fit on top or below a desk. It supplies decent bass and, if placed correctly, complements the satellite speakers well. There is a wired remote to control the volume, and there are ports for both headphones and a microphone, which are essential for any good speakers.

      That's all good stuff, but here are the drawbacks. The cables between speakers and subwoofer could be longer, and it does limit the options for physical set-up of the 2.1 system. In my case I was working in a confined space anyway, so it didn't register, but I can see other people being frustrated by this. Similarly, the power cable is not very long, so bear in mind that you'll likely need an extension cord (with surge protection, of course). Lastly, as mentioned earlier, the satellite speakers are very lightweight. This is problematic, because they fall down easily, particularly on a slightly shaky desk, such as mine.

      Good speakers, great price, and as portable a 2.1 sound system as you'll find.
