I'm running Windows 7, and as you would expect this just plugged in and worked. To test it I started a song playing through the normal laptop speakers. I then hooked up the Z205. I was, quite literally, blown away by the difference this speaker made. The bass level was perfect for my low tolerance of said frequencies, and there was minimal distortion even at silly volumes.
OK, now let's put this into perspective. It does not sound as good as my dedicated home cinema setup, nor does it sound as good as my other desktop PC with 2.1 speakers. Being an all-in-one speaker like this, stereo separation is not as wide as you would be able to acieve with separate L and R speakers. However, the yin to that yang is the fact that you only have one small speaker and one short cable to deal with. Besides, it will be no worse than your existing laptop in that respect.
For the money then, the difference this speaker makes to the usual tinny laptop speakers is quite incredible, and the fact that it can be popped into it's protective bag (included) and thrown into your laptop case is the icing on the cake. Highly recommended if you are in the market for something small and portable to boost the audio of your laptop.
Purchased to accompany my 10" netbook as I will be spending 3 -4 months travelling overseas and want to take my media with me! It is light and comes in a well constructed travel pouch which is an added bonus, it should tuck neatly into my laptop carry case too.
Plug and play, via USB totally effortless and the clip seems sturdy, which is good as one needs to remove the speaker in order to close the laptop/notebook lid. No superfluous wiring, just one cable; very tidy. NB have found it easier to clip the speaker onto the side of the notebook screen, to avoid unbalancing such a small and light notebook.
The sound is great, works well for mp3, movies and YouTube plays well. I prefer to control the volume through my notebook altho the volume controls are easily located on top of the speaker.
What more can I tell you? I am really pleased with this item and recommend it to you
Update: May 2012
Still going strong and have taken it on multiple trips away
What this diminutive device does superbly however is deliver sound that is both crystal clear and devoid of both tinniness and boominess, making it ideal for reproducing speech. This is good, because the reason I bought mine was for conferencing with the Microsoft Lync unified communication product; at this it excels, being in a different league to the speakers built in to my Lenovo T61 laptop and with the absence of boominess meaning that even at high volume there is no audio feedback through the microphone in the webcam.
Summary; if you want on line radio or musak to simply listen to*, need to join a conferencing service, or need something small and very portable that is better performing than weak laptop speakers, the Z205 excels and is excellent value for money. If you want a great sound, spend much (much) more and buy some high fidelity speakers.
* As opposed to sitting back and luxuriating in music that envelopes you with its staggering depth of control and beautiful sound stage (my definition of great sound)

Definitely an upgrade to my laptops' onboard speakers for a reasonable price. Also a good investment in a houshold with more than one below-par-audio-quality laptop. Read morePublished on 6 May 2011 by Oh gosh I sure love coffee
