Logitech X-530- Excellent for the price - But some setting up issues, 30 Nov. 2010
Good speakers for the price. - I did do a thorough search before getting these speakers (however, get the X-540's if you're not as broke as me! - only £20 more!)
However, in order for them to work on a laptop (which only, normally, have a standard 3.5mm port available), you need to purchase a 3.5mm to 2xRCA cable (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000Q6LSVS/ref=oss_product).
In additon to the speakers, a small "game" adapter comes included. It has 3, 3.5mm jacks on one side (green, orange and black) and 2 RCA ports on the other (red and black).
In order for the speaker system to work on a laptop, you must (using the 3.5mm to 2xRCA cable) connect the 3.5mm jack to the laptop's 3.5mm "headphone" port and, of the other end, the 2 (red and black) RCA jacks into the correspending holes (black and red ports) of the "game" adapter. Then you must connect the 3, 3.5mm jacks, from the speaker's control unit, into the corresponding colours of the "game" adapter.
This should work! - I'm still waiting on the 3.5mm to 2xRCA cable. - which was also purchased from amazon today, and already dispatched!
I also have purchased a samsung HDTV (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002DPMYYU/ref=oss_product). I also hope to connect these speakers to the TV. I am quite sure if you connect it to the TV in the same way as above should work.
I did do a day's worth of research before writing this. :D
