The Logitech S150 speaker set are a portable budget speaker system, which is an ideal upgrade for users wishing to improve their sound quality on a budget.

Below is our review of the , a laptop, featuring RAM, hard drive and .

Looking for a set of cheap USB speakers with decent audio quality?  The Logitech S150s are probably the best choice currently on the market - costing around a tenner, including a cute little carry bag.  With just one USB cable to plug in, they're simple to setup, and despite being fairly inexpensive, sound quality is surprisingly good.  Due to the fact they're not mains powered, they're not as loud as other systems, but for the low price tag we can't criticise them.  If you need some cheap speakers for your PC or laptop, then the Logitech S150s are well worth bearing in mind - surprisingly clear and crisp audio at a budget price.

Pros

Exceptional value, pretty good quality considering the price.

Cons

If you can stretch a little further, Logitech's mid range speaker sets offer slightly better audio quality. The S150's represent good value though.

Our Verdict for the

If you're looking for a cheap set of USB powered speakers, then the S150's from Logitech are a bargain.  We simply can't fault them considering their price tag of around a tenner.

The Logitech Z623 speakers are a high end and versatile PC speaker system, which will work with your TV, music player or games console, providing incredible sound quality.

Below is our review of the , a laptop, featuring RAM, hard drive and .

The Logitech Z623s are a flexible PC speaker system from Logitech, offering great versatility and quite frankly awesome sound quality and all round performance.

Their main strength is the audio input options, enabling you to plug in your games console, MP3 or music player, TV or PC (from up to 3 sources simultaneously), thus enabling you to enjoy an incredible audio performance on all of your platforms. Overall audio output is stunning, with an incredibly deep bass and crisp high end sound, which left our testers with nothing but positive comments.  In terms of pricing, they do cost a little extra than the majority of Logitech's speaker range, but despite this we feel they still provide decent value for money.

If you're serious about decent audio, and need a speaker system for all of your devices, then check out the Logitech Z623 - you won't be disappointed.

Pros

A high quality, high end speaker system for your PC, TV, or whatever device you choose to plug them in to.

Cons

Reasonably expensive - well worth the cost though.

Our Verdict for the

If you're looking for a high quality and high performance speaker system for your PC, then look no further than the Logitech Z623 speaker system - works very well, amazing sound quality with a deep bass.  The Z623s sound great at all volumes, from quiet to (very very!) loud and should be powerful enough for all of your entertainment needs.

Review

The Logitech Z205 laptop speakers is a speaker system specifically designed for laptops - dramatically improve your inbuilt laptop speakers with this simple Logitech upgrade.

Below is our review of the , a laptop, featuring RAM, hard drive and .

Got a new laptop, but are disappointed with the poor built in speaker system?  The Logitech Z205 speakers are designed to replace your laptop speakers, offering a dramatic improvement on your regular speakers.

They are only USB powered, but still provide an incredible audio performance, with a deep bass and good overall tone.  Our testers were uniformly impressed with the sound quality, especially considering they weight just 349g, and measure just 21cm in width.

Output is 1.2w, and so won't be quite as good as Logitech mains powered speakers - however in terms of portable speakers you won't find many better.  The clip system means the speaker system easily attaches to the top of your laptop's screen, so you can use this product whilst on the sofa or the floor without any issues.

If you're looking for decent audio quality whilst out and about, then we'd highly recommend the Logitech Z205 laptop speakers - powerful yet compact audio solution.

Pros

Awesome improvement on standard laptop speakers

Cons

If you only use your laptop at home, you may wish to buy some mains powered speakers - however for those out and about they're ideal.

Our Verdict for the

If your laptop speakers aren't up to standard, the Logitech Z205 laptop speaker system is must have - they produce awesome sound, are extremely portable, and look great.  If you regularly listen to music on your laptop, then the Z205 speaker system is an essential upgrade.
