Best computer speakers under $100
The Logitech Z523 speaker system packs a lot into a budget-priced package, reviews say. The star of this show is the Z523's impressive subwoofer, which pounds out powerful, distortion-free bass at all but the very loudest volume levels, or you can dial back the bass to suit your taste. You also get a slew of connection ports -- including a 3.5 mm jack, headphone jack and RCA auxiliary input -- so you can hook up, say, a PC and an MP3 player at the same time. The Z523's two piano-black satellite speakers feature drivers on both the front and back for room-filling sound. Testers say the satellites can sometimes sound a little too bright in the high ranges, or even harsh at maximum volume, but overall they sound quite satisfying for less than $100. If you want better sound quality, reviews recommend the Harman Kardon SoundSticks III (*Est. $170).
