5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for a shared office, 6 Aug 2014
I'm using these speakers in a shared office and they keep reasonably fidelity at loudish volumes.

Definitely good for this kind of environment - and no hiss as well. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Auxillary / headphone jack has hiss, 17 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The speakers are fine up until you try and plug some headphones into them. Then you get a constant buzzing noise.

Amazon sent me a replacement and the problem persists.

It appears to be a common problem - Logitech say the speakers may be faulty, but even my replacements aren't working.

This is probably less of a problem for many, but I work in an office and need to use my headphones sometimes - and these speakers are simply unbearable in that regard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book - lots of talking points, 10 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchased this book for when I visit my nephews; I loved the Disney-style of the drawings and wanted something to read along with them.

Aside from the lovely illustrations, this book is constructed in such a way as to have multiple tiers of talking points - so you can initially talk about letters of the alphabet, then animals, then adjectives like "angry" or "clever" and then on to more complex concepts.

I firmly believe that at this young age, kids are taking in a huge amount of information - so there is no point in limiting that process. If a kid needs to ignore something, they will.

In this way, the author has designed as book that can be used again and again in different ways.

It's fun to walk through the book, looking at the pictures, asking the kids to say the words, describe the drawings and their relationship to the words - it really opens them up to talking about their experiences and helps them to tie their experiences in to the language they are learning.
As your child grows concepts like warm blooded animals, reptiles, mammals, omnivores, nocturnal etc. are there for the discussion. So I've genuinely had fun reading along with my hyperactive 8 year old nephew Kyle and my little 5 year old princess nephew Shania.

I don't think you can go wrong with this book - the drawings alone are worth the price; but the opportunity to expand young minds is priceless.

Well worth it.
