Logitech Z 120
Advantages: Compact, cable management, USB powered, stylish looking
Disadvantages: none that I can think of
Whenever we wanted to watch DVDs on the laptop, we would bring the speakers from our computer upstairs down and set them up. They were clunky, old, and not so great with the quality. Add to that the power plug was put in the only available socket behind the sofa where our cat would be able to secretly chew the cable without being caught.
This got annoying so we treated ourselves to a new set!
We wanted something simple, functional and pretty so opted for the Logitech z120. The speakers are a nice size, are a smooth curvy white plastic with black faces and a silver coloured centre - giving them a lovely stylish look.
Unlike our last pair, they do not need a wall socket and are powered by USB so have two cables, one for the USB and one (3.5mm) for the audio.
My favourite feature is that they have cable management- in the back of the speakers there is a hollowed out section with a area where you can wrap the wire around and clip it into place so you do not have to deal with annoying, tangling unsightly cables. This is a god-send with three cats around that just LOVE chewing any type of cable.
The power and volume control is one turn dial on the right hand speaker and there is an indicator light to show when they are on.
The sound quality on these products is excellent. It is so clear and crisp and the volume does not need to be too high to hear it well, unlike some models I've dealt with.
Also because there is no wall socket, they are easier to carry around and move to the different computers are we require them.
We got these from Amazon, they were around £11.00 but I think you can probably get them cheaper now. Even at £11.00 not a bad price for the great look and excellent quality.
A brilliant buy and I will definitely be getting another pair for my computer upstairs so I can replace the old clunky ones.
Summary: An excellent product
