Whilst peripheral reviews tend to focus on what’s the beast for your money or on the sheer high-end products, what i have today is a set of desktop speakers from Logitech that are decidedly on the lower end of the price, size and functionality level. The Logitech Z150 is Logitech’s entry level stereo speaker solution, although naturally, comes with the highly-regarded Logitech stamp of approval where build quality and reliability are concerned.
A little bit about Logitech:
Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.
With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech’s leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.

The Z150 comes with a two year warranty too as well as a separate audio jack for headphones – surprising for less than twenty notes. Keeping the price in mind, the actual product is well presented as we’ll see on the next page…
