wow i have X230 bought from amazont at £25 and they are a beauty with fantastic sound

I think I bought these from Amazon for a little more than this a few months back, and have had no complaints so far! (using them right now as we speak, too)

The power of the sub without it giving off any distortion is quite impressive! Especially when you turn it right up.. (not sure the neighbours would agree though)

A cracking' set-up for a crackin' price

maybe good price for this model, but the sound quality make them good choice only for some computer games, not for movies or music

I've got these, they sound good but they pick up radio signals, usually french or american christian broadcasts, apparently its not just my set that does this too, seen a few reports of it on the net.

Yeh, ive had this set of speakers for over a year now and my set also picks up radio signals. However, they do sound great and for the price its definately worth it.

I pick up a spanish radio station when I turn the volume down to zero, but not all the time though. If i increase the volume slightly it disappears, and its low enough to not hear whatever I have plugged it in to, so no real problem there.

No line-in/optical in so you can't plug in your 360. Apart from that worth a buy.

Hardly a "Web Exclusive", when another part of DSG, Dixons have the same price (although obviously you can't reserve and collect with Dixons!)

Still only available on the web at this price though, right?

Logitech's X series is frequently featured in best buys in most PC magazines.

For under an extra £1 you can get the one step up X-540 series from Eclipse Computers - but sadly their postage seems to be a secret until furnished with your card details.

Personally - I would hate to think the amount of wiring this piece of kit will produce, thereby increasing the volume of splattered spaghetti hanging at the rear of my computer, suddenly making the aforementioned X-230 series seem such a better bet. Both sets fail to reach the deeper depths of the 20-40Hz digitally represented range (as do the series topping X-540), but from the number of awards these have received, it does not seem to be a problem losing that lowest octave/10% of the sound range.

I bought these just over 2 yrs ago, and yes mine do pick up radio signals too!

but havent heard any in a long time. . only seems to happen if you turn the dial on the speakers down to around 10%.

best thing to do is to turn the volume on the speakers on high, and then just amend the Windows volume.

over all its a good product. although i did buy mine for this price 2 yrs ago.. from pc world for the same price as above

Hope your speakers don't go off or some other reason for retrun under warranty fix etc as logitech support is non existent and they are bunch of peanut eating morons who send you round and round. I thought Creative support was bad until I had to deal with logitech over a £280 quid wireless 5.1 set up which is still broken upstairs in {warranty} that they will do nothing about cos when I got the speakers from Komplett.co.uk it had a euro 2 pin plug on it which I changed to UK plug and according to logitech voided my warranty. Avoid the SAD company IMO.

The radios they sell cannot pick up signals but their speakers can

Got the 2.1 version. Very nice set with great sound and good bass!

just a bit of advice for future (As alot of compaines won't take back a product with the plug cut off) buy a 2 to 3 pin adaptor from maplins. Cheap and easy to install and no problem with warranty in future

eh, but all companies would void the warranty in this instance :roll:

agreed, think thats what most people will use them for.....they arent that loud and are harsh at high vol but fine for computers...if neighbours can here these then the user must have paper walls!

looks a great price.

i have the X230s myself which are enough for me and i have been very pleased with them for£24 from amazon:)

the X230s have been replaced by X240s on amazon now which appear to be not so well reviewed!

Cracking set of speakers, heat and rep added. I paid a lot more than this for mine back in 2006 and they work really well wall-mounted and used with the HTPC and 32" LCD.

Paid about the same price for mine 2 years ago

They come with a 2yr warranty, and when my woofer was overheating at around 23 months, within 10 days Logitech had sent me a brand new boxed set of these.

Very good set for those that don't want high end sound, but can't live with low end rubbish.
They can very easily be wall mounted too (speakers that is not the woofer!!)

Price is very good if you can reserve & colllect, otherwise Ebuyer do 'em for around the £39 mark.

I use them mainly for playing music through my PC; a lot of it very bass heavy, and I don't see any problem with the quality or volume level that they produce - they're not exactly what i'd call quiet!

As for the picking up radio signals - not heard of that being mentioned before, but it does seem a common thing given what a few of you have said; however, mine do occasionally pick up interference, i.e. incoming mobile phone signal or electrics; but that's the only down-side to them really.

I brought these today... excellent...

have one issue which if anyone can help that would be great....

I have PS3 connected to my PC via Optical... I can hear the PS3 menu clicks through my speaker system but when I run a game or play music I lose the sound...

any ideas?

Banned

so these would be suitable for a TV? For surround sound for example.

I have these and they are the best speakers I ever bought. Sound quality is superb and the sub can really annoy the neighbours with the bass. Bought them about a year ago for £55, so these aren't the newest speakers, but if your looking for some decent computer speakers these are awesome!

These were the first 5.1 speakers I ever bought back in 2004/2005, paid around £70ish I think back then.

They weren't too bad, compared to the ****** generic PC speakers they replaced they were very good. I did find the Bass a bit overwhelming though, even with it set as low as possible it was still thudding away, and also the sound quality was a bit iffy sometimes.

Definately a good first system though, but if your after decent speakers but not necessarily 5.1, I would spend a little more and go for some JBL Creature II's(2.1) or one of the Creative Gigaworks (2.0) range.

Thanks for the post but are these not...
£35.57 at Advancetec
£35.85 at Computer Webstore
and I found around 7 other places that do it for under £39 too.
Cheers. ;-)

A reasonable set of speakers. Not fantastic for music but reasonalbe for games - worth the money

these looks great, HOT!
might buy em
one question though, can i just use them as a two 2.1 set-up by just connecting the woofer and two front satellites? i'm not too keen on the masses of wiring a full surround would create. I'm wondering if I'd lose sound? (i'm not using them for surround games/movies)
if that's the case then i'll have to search for some less powerful x-230s

You can use them as a 2.1 from what I can recall when I had mine (left the back speakers unplugged alot), but I would go for something else like the Creature II's if you want a 2.1. A little bit more, but much, much better audio wise. E.g Linky: ]http//ww…867

Got mine mid 2006 and I'm still using them with no sign of replacing anytime soon (unless the soundsticks drop in price!).

thanks for the advice, the JBLs look great and are just what I need (smaller satellites are cool). very powerful too (8W per satellite and 16W sub). just need to muster together a little more cash...

Driving to the nearest store to me will probably cost me a fiver in petrol anyway ;-)

Its a miracle...

I have got these they are ok, but to be honest my low cost £25 set from ASDA was better. Why?
The ASDA ones have 3 imputs this only has one
The ASDA one comes with a remote this doesn't
The ASDA one dioes not pick up radio signals
The ASDA ones sound just as good

I had these and returned them...

fantastic sound but I couldn't get my PS3 to connect and playout ttrough my PC using Dolby Digital; I know you need a decoder on your PC. I went SPDIF in; then that was it.. plus a slight delay was there...

Any expiry date on this item?

these are also avaible to collect in store as i did....fantastic deal thanks!!!!
