Adding Volume Logic made me happy
Strengths: Good power. Sound great after using Volume Logic
Weakness: Without EQ mids are "soft". lacking in 200-400 khz range
I'd read all the reviews about weak midrange, hoped for the best anyway but, the "wimpy-mid" reviews are correct. These speakers lack mid punch. I tried many iTunes EQ settings but couldn't pull out the proper frequnecies needed for a good snare drum crack or vocal attack. Cranking it loud helped but softer volumes had the "boom-hiss" sound that I loathe about most sub-sat designs. The mids...

I'd read all the reviews about weak midrange, hoped for the best anyway but, the "wimpy-mid" reviews are correct. These speakers lack mid punch. I tried many iTunes EQ settings but couldn't pull out the proper frequnecies needed for a good snare drum crack or vocal attack. Cranking it loud helped but softer volumes had the "boom-hiss" sound that I loathe about most sub-sat designs. The mids almost sound like they're somehow compressed. I was dissapointed and thought it would be one of those "well, wadya expect for $99" kinda deals.
But then ... I downloaded Volume Logic for iTunes and WOW! It brought back all the frequncies in familiar music tracks (most noteably the the amazing woody snare crack in Rush's Moving Pictures album) and created a nice sound stage in acoustic music like Allison Krausse as well as classical music. Even though it's not a graphic EQ and not all that "adjustable", it surpasses iTunes EQ hands down. I'm guessing Volume Logic uses better frequency logarythms than iTunes.
Of course Volume Logic doesn't help DVD playback but, after 30 min of LOTR just now, they're not bad at all ... great thump and clarity. The bass volume control is really handy. They seem to sound better for movies than music (music played without V.L.) I upgraded from a $50 Altec 2.1 set that I've had for years (and really liked but they didn't offer enough power or low end for DVD playback). The Logitech's really add nice soundstage and detail not found in most 2.1 computer speakers. After $99 for the speakers plus adding Volume Logic, I'm very happy and excited about the Z-2300's.

This product is excellent for...
Strengths: User friendly. Easy set-up and controls. Very versatile. It has very little distortion at the upper volume and terrific presence at the lower volume. Excellent price for such a fine product.
This product is excellent for expanding the use of a computer, tv, vcr, dvd or game player. The performance, simplicity and value of this high end system comes at a bargain basement price.

I thought they were distorting...
Strengths: Ultra clear, frequency response is amazing! Work-Horse too! Low distortion at very high volumes. Highly... Highly recommend!
Weakness: Some hummm when turned up and nothing playing. (May be my connectors)
I thought they were distorting until I realized that it was the pictures on the wall were vibrating! What else can I say?

I am well pleased with this 2.1...
Strengths: crisp clear sound, very loud
I am well pleased with this 2.1 speaker set. They are much better than my last set of speakers. The subwoofer is bigger than I was expecting but no big deal since I have the room for it. Sound is very loud and crisp, no hissing is noticable with the volume cut way down. Very nice and sleek looking speakers.

great quality for the price
Strengths: awesome bass response, controls separate from speakers, sheer power!!
Weakness: satellite drivers could be bigger for better midrange response, blue led is too bright.
i got mine from JustDeals for about $62 after shipping (they always have some of the best deals around for refurbs (r0x0rs!)). FOR THE PRICE, no better system exists. as an example of the power of this set, listen: for steady listening, i never turn the volume knob higher than 25%. turn it up to 50%, and you can hear it through walls loud and clear. wow. the sub is more than ample for home use,...

the sub is more than ample for home use, at 120W. even though it is only 8", it kicks like a 10" or maybe even a 12".
the satellites can put out an impressive amount of sound, too, at 40W per channel. the only room for improvement is to increase the size of the woofers: there is a significant gap between the satellites & the sub as far as frequency response. sub has pounding lows, satellites have crystal-clear highs, but the mid-range isn't there in full force. sound is still great though. this is the one area where the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 set is better. but i must say, this set looks 20 times better than the Klipsch (and is rated for 40 more watts).
You'll never go wrong with a great Logitech product, such as this (or my G5 laser mouse).
to those of you who complain about humming, you probably have CRT monitors, right? cuz they will do that to speakers that are not magnetically shielded ... and i guess these aren't. but if you have a flat panel LCD like i do, you'd say "humming? huh? what humming?"
