I wanted a surround sound system for my PC and, to be honest, was trying to justify spending £200 on an all singing, all dancing set-up. I really thought I couldn't expect much from a budget system. However, based on web reviews of the Logitech X-540s (and indeed the X-530s) I decided to bite the bullet and go for these. And am I glad!!!

First off, even with free Super Saver delivery these arrived on my doorstep within a few days. Thanks Amazon, YOU rock. Second, on lifting the box I was pleasantly suprised to notice how heavy these speakers are, normally a good sign. Last but not least, opening the box revealed an array of extremely cool looking and well finished center / satellite speakers (each with two cones and built in metal grill), and a neat and tidy subwoofer with large bass port on the front, the cone being on the bottom between four sturdy rubber feet (take care when lifting / positioning as the subwoofer cone is unprotected).

Basic set-up took 10 to 15 minutes, and was very user friendly as all cables are colour-coded. This was especially useful as the colours tied up nicely with my Creative Soundblaster Audigy sound card. The center speaker has a nice touch - the stand, which enables it to sit on the desk in front of your monitor, also doubles as a bracket which allows you to place it on top of an LCD screen. This obviously frees up desk space and works wonderfully well.

Another 10 minutes and I had the four satellites mounted on my walls (again this is an option, not a necessity). This greatly improves spaciality and frees up yet more desk space. One potential negative here is the length of the satellite cables, especially for the rear speakers.

Verified Purchase
(EDIT) 1 year+ in and they are still great. Although i upgraded to the Logitech Z-5500 sound system (505 watts)

When I wanted to buy a sound system, I looked around quite a lot to get the right product. I read many reviews about this sound system and how it was: "A great value for money product". I have to say that I totally agree!

When i first opened the box, I was expecting a sound system that would take me hours to figure out. I was wrong. It took me merely 20 Minutes to set up all five speakers, and the bass. Which came to my delight.

The colours of the leads that the speakers have, make it very easy to set up. After connecting them to the bass, all you have to do is put the green, black, yellow, and pink leads that come from your bass into your motherboard, or your sound card. Then are ready to get blown away!

The colour of the leads of the sound system are:
-Green : For your front speakers
-Black : For your rear speakers
-Yellow : For the centre speakers

I found that after I set up the sound system, the sound quality coming out of the speakers were truly amazing, and had a crystal clear sound. Unlike other my old speakers that had a slight crackling behind them.

Also I find that the little desktop sound unit that connects to the bass, and allows you to control your sound system, proved to be very useful. Unlike other sound systems out there, you can control the volume of the bass, the master volume, and the ability to switch off your sound system. It also came with the cleaver matrix system button. Although I never use this when listening to my own music, it is useful when you are on a radio station online, or on other sites that would normally play through two speakers and not five.

These speakers are a must buy for anyone who wants top quality sound, a deep-bass boom for movies, mp3 players, computer,games consoles or cd players.

When I first flicked open the manuel and box, I was surprised how easy it was to set the speakers, set-up took 10 minutes. Colour-coded wires couldn't be easier, some have commented on the length of the cables but they were fine for my room - no problems.

Movies - These speakers really bring movies to life with crisp sound, Iv'e only seen Gladiator so far but I noticed sounds that I didnt before (wind around the tents etc). Awesome!

Music - Nice, smooth sound with a great bass.

Get these speakers - you really can't get getter value for money.

These really are excellent value for money - and if all you really want to do is play games, in 5.1, watch the odd DVD and hear Windows warbles - then for this price you really cannot go wrong - and you do NOT need to read the rest of this review.

However - for music they are not so hot.
They do go loud without much distortion and the bass (from the subwoofer), is more than adequate - but they are lacking in the mid range.
The sound, when playing music soon becomes harsh to listen to and Vocals/Guitars/Strings lack presence.
All the satellite speakers (including the centre speaker), only have 2 small tweeters - really the left, right and centre speakers could do with having 1 tweeter (2") plus 1 squawker (3 to 4") to achieve a balanced sound.
Having said the above, it must be noted that I am a Music Teacher - so maybe I'm a bit hypercritical - but my previous speakers (Philips USB 350) were much better balanced, albeit somewhat unreliable and in the end died.
Note that you have to switch on 'Matrix' mode to listen to music - or it will just come through the front speakers only.
Also, if you use MSN Messenger it will not work in 5.1 mode, necessitating going into 'Control Panel' to switch to Stereo mode (a fault of Messenger's - not the speakers - but annoying none the less).
Yes, the cables are too short - but easily extended.

In conclusion:

"Good - but not that good",
(but - probably the best you'll get at this price).

Pros:

Great value for money,
Look good,
Very little distortion,
Good bass,
5.1 really adds to your gaming experience.

Cons:

Weak mid-range,
Not ideal for music,
Problematic with MSN Messenger (damn Microsoft).
