Cheap speakers that do the job
Member Name: Thebaker50
Advantages: Cheap, good, well made
Disadvantages: Not brilliant sound quality, but good enough for general use
As I am not a massive music fan, I just needed some speakers that let me watch my movies and programs on my laptop slightly louder than what the laptop could handle. So I wasn't really after any high performance £50 speakers, just something basic, that does the job, and was cheap.
I got these logitech speakers, and honestly have not regretted it.
They are nice and small, and they come as a pair. The jack itself is well made, and it doesn't feel like it wants to drop out of the laptop port the entire time.
These also go pretty loud. Not "cinema style in a large room" loud, but loud for "one or two people watching something on a laptop" loud. However I should note this does partly depend on what it is you are watching.
As for reliability, sometimes these take a bit of tinkering to get them working properly. I am not entirely sure why, but I think that it might be something to do with the way I plug them in, if you have the jack going in at the wrong angle then you have to give it a little twiddle. Its not a big thing, but I am just stating it to be complete.
The sound quality if fair-good. Its not the best by any means, but its fine for my purposes, and I would not be looking to upgrade just to increase the sound quality.
Overall, they are just a simple speaker thats not expensive, feels well made, compact, and functions well, and as it has a built in amplifier and a dial that can be spun to increase and decrease the sound, so it works very well.
I give this 4/5, they are very good, but people who are more "in touch" with their musical side may benefit from something more expensive.
Summary: Very good simple speakers
