I would go for the creative ones, they have always been a solid make when it comes to sound devices.

I will second that. In that price range, the Creatives sound better.

I got a set of the 550's at Christmas. I had to RMA them with in the first 30 days and got a new set, and now they are again off to Creative to be fix. They sound good when they work.

More than likely I just unlucky and got a couple of bad sets. I am hoping that all will be better when they come back from Creative.

I would go for the logitech ones...simply because i own the Z-680's and the are incredible.

I had creative before (the SoundWorks 3500 i think they were called)..they were ok.

I Have Had Creative Twice. My First ones were good just for music but i wanted more so i got the Inspire T5400 5.1 Surround Sound. They r awsome...wish i had more bass tho. The subwoofer is only like 22 Watts RMS. I saw these one speakers at Best Buy that cost $400. The Subwoofer alone was like the size of a my 17in computer screen.

Anyway...get Creative!!!!

Logitech & Creative labs are both good. The new Creative Labs ones thought are more metal than plastic like the Logitech's so go with Creative :) I got the 5.1's so :p

I wouldn't touch anything by Creative with a 10 foot pole.

I was really pissed when they bought Cambridge Soundworks. Quality went downhill rapidly.

I have the logitech z5300 speakers i like them. they put out good sound can get my house shaking at about half way up...small house though. anyway i got mine for only $150 from amazon.com which looks to be $100 less than the creative ones. Also logitech rates there speaker wattage diffrent than creative unless creative changed there rating system so you should read some reviews on the 2 of them.

Dooooh! You just played the trump card! I have the ProMedia 5.1 speakers (not the crappy GMX ones), and they are the ultimate in crisp, clear sound with the richest bass you could ever dream of.

If you can shell out $360 USD, do it!

the megaworks or gigaworks sets are lovely... either would do the jobbie...

logitech also makes excellent speakers but if you want truly high end with wde spectrum of sound get either creative or klipsch... logitech has good bass but with treble the other two spank it silly...

Ok this is gettin funny we have more names of manufactures comming out all over the place.

As for speakers Wood has the BEST sound if you know about building boxes for cars and such.

You want a sweet set you gotta buy from a home audio place period. Pay out of the butt but meh you want true sound then u have to pay for it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
