Decent Speakers for Daily Use... on a Student Budget? Yes please!

Advantages: Price, quality, well thought through features.
Disadvantages: Volume not as high (and thus quality at high volume slightly distorted) for extreme use.
Firstly, I was (as typical for an 18 year old girl I suppose) attracted by the aesthetics. A black rectangular speaker in a silver frame, with a 2inch high-excursion metallic driver on the front (giving it that hifi feel without the cost) and a blended in black knob for volume and power, was subtle enough to go unnoticed on my desk, (matched the silver laptop) and didnt look made of cheap and tacky plastic like many of the lower-value speakers around today. Since I bought them I've also seen them in the same black but with a very elegant white swirly flowery pattern in the top right hand corner, and with pink or blue frames instead of the silver as I purchased. Meaning these speakers can be found to suit most peoples style and decor.
Secondly, the quality attracted me - I have trusted many logitech computer products over the years, although invested in their speakers and felt that the quality we had received in the past was sure to continue into these products. Peak power at 6 watts was alot higher than even the more expensive speakers around it (particularly the novelty ones) and I was told by one of the shop employees that the sound system was, infact, as crystal clear as having been a far more expensive set. After using them for a few months I can guarantee the sound is almost entirely crystal clear, the volume entirely adequate for my room and even, on occassion, to cover a flat party - meaning a lot of power in these little beauties. And, despite some negative reports, I have not personally come across any issues with using this product.
The features were the final tempting aspect - I personally like to have speakers with an auxillary input, so I can plug in my ipod and suchlike (particularly useful for flat parties, as the speakers are small enough to be easily moved to the kitchen) and a headphone jack for easy use when trying to be more conspicuous. The other feature that mainly interested me was the cable management system, with all the cablehidden away, the only ones to deal with are the mains power supply, the aux cable and the cable connecting the two speakers. Particularly in a small room like mine at university, the idea of cables spilling everywhere is a nightmare and the handy design at the back of the speakers allow some of this excess to be wound away to clear up the desk. All in all, perfect for my needs.
Finally, the price. At RRP £14.99, it is definitely at the bottom end of the speaker pricings, but it rivals even my full hifi system at home for quality and clarity and volume is more than adequate.
Overall I'd recommend these speakers as a quality set of speakers for use at a desk or in a kitchen, or anywhere where you dont want to entertaing every room in the house, and for an entirely reasonable price what can go wrong? Definitely worth a go!
Summary: Small, sleek, mains powered speakers with a top-end quality and appearance at a bottom-end price.
