I was hoping for speakers like Logitech z205 or z305. I needed speakers that are both powered by usb as well as the sound input through usb. My friend's computer sound card failed and still wanted to listen to music on her computer. Speakers powered by usb to hook up to an mp3 player to me is useless. Just listen to music on your computer. Logitech has produced some awesome products in the past, and then they discountinue them. The Audio Hub, and the Alto wireless keyboard are two such awesome products.
