    5.0 out of 5 stars very good 25 April 2008
    By dmd5
    I've been using these speakers for about six weeks now having bought them without really planning to, but my old Harmon Kardon's were on their last legs and I saw these at a good price. I've been really happy with their performance, so was very surprised when I clicked in here and saw only one previous review - and a one-star review at that! Well each to their own I suppose...

    I bought these primarily for use with DVDs, though I listen to a lot of music on them too. The subwoofer is terrific, really powerful and gives a depth to the film watching experience that my old speakers couldn't provide, good as they were. I've seen from reviews of the X-230 that turning the subwoofer's volume down all the way does not completely cut out the sound, that has been rectified here, the sound cuts out from the subwoofer once its volume control is turned down all the way on the X-240.

    Sound from the satellites is very clear too giving an all-round sound that I've been extremely pleased with. As far as music goes I've had no significant problems while using the speakers with a wide range (at least I think so) of music, from Brian Eno to Mozart to Radiohead to Rage Against The Machine, it's all come out crisp and clear. Obviously different types of music will need differing levels of bass, but that's what the volume control on the subwoofer is there for...

    There is of course some loss in the mid-range, but nothing that would have most people tearing their hair out, and this is par for the course on 2.1 speakers and particularly in this price range. If you are thinking of buying a set of budget speakers mainly to listen to music I would imagine you're better off forgetting about a subwoofer and going for the Creative T20 or T40.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price (23 from Amazon) 29 Dec 2009
    Verified Purchase
    I bought these speakers as a budget option to improve my TV sound quality and for that purpose they have done their job very well. They connected with little trouble, the leads were long enough and the units look good and don't look out of place next to my tv stand. The sound quality is X10 better than my TV but....

    At work we have some creative labs speakers and I bought these as a budget version and unfortunately that is what they are, a budget version. The main speakers are quite tinny and the bass unit is very "boomy" but with little definition. You can control the output of the bass unit but it seems to just produce noise and not the actual notes or sounds of the thing you are listening to. Set at about 10% it is just about bearable. The volume is rated at 25w RMS?? Mmmm, not sure about that. They are not overly loud but don't distort when on full so at least you can use what you are given. Maybe if you could use some of the bass units power to drive the main speakers? (I listen to indie rock, Wedding Present, Smiths, Stone Roses, Nirvana... that sort of thing)

    The ipod dock intrigued me as I have an iphone, but as a previous reviewer said "it is useless". It is very weak and it comes with allsorts of cheap plastic adapters to make it "fit" your ipod. They don't fit properly and you have to thread your iphone lead through it and to the iphone charger AND you still have to use the 3.5mm jack to connect to the X-240! So what is the point? Like the last reviewer the bits went in the bin with the box.

    So is it all doom and gloom? NO, NO, NO! If you are not sat listening to your music like an audio critic then this cheap little unit is great. I paid 23.01 from Amazon, they were delivered the next day (Prime).

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the money but.... 30 Oct 2008
    I've just bought the X-240 speakers and the design is excellent. I love the cute little satellites, they're well angled to point directly to you.

    If you like your music SERIOUSLY bass heavy, then these are a good buy. I have the sub set to about 25% and in loud paced music it's still too "thud" rather than "music". Basically, it's a GREAT kick-drum, but bass guitar is poor.

    I've just had to replace my Harman Kardon Soundsticks (and coz I'm feeling poor, I didn't want to replace the 129 speakers at the same price). I saw a good few reviews for the X-240 and I guess for the money, they're a good deal. Anyone who tries to persuade you these are "HiFi" needs to be led into the street and put out of your and everyone else's misery. The sound is cloudy at best - there is very little clarity. It's kinda like over-hearing someone else's headphones.

    The Logitech site claims frequency response of 40Hz-20kHz. The Sub feels like it's going lower than that, and although I can't prove, I doubt the speakers have any tonal power at 20kHz. They might be able to get there, but they're soooo quiet you'd never hear it over the midrange.

    Gaming improves a bit because most of the noise is mid-low range. I am currently trying to figure out the wiring loom from my old SoundSticks as only the bass died and if I can get my old satellites working with my new Logitech Sub, then I reckon I could be on to a winner.

    Overall - they're good for the money, but if you actually LISTEN to your music then spend an extra 20-30 and get something that much better.

    Ooh, and to further everyone else's sentiment - the MP3 holder is rubbish. I'd rather blu-tack my iPod to my desk than use that cradle. You will have to provide the USB interface and dock cable to get this to work. The volume controller will allow you to play your MP3 player through the speakers but will not charge it. You will need to connect the Sync cable for this.
