Well Built, Super Easy to Setup, Loud and Good Battery Life,
This review is from: Logitech Wireless Speaker Z515 for Laptops, Ipad and Iphone (Personal Computers)
If you are in the market for a portable, wireless speaker the Logitech Z515 is an easy recommendation to make. It is well built, simple in it's design, unexpectedly simple to setup and use and a good performer. For a portable speaker, battery life is as important as decently/loud sound quality and the Z515 provided both for us. We watched hours of video from the laptop with it sitting across the room on the counter broadcasting sound to the entire living room instead of just to the single person sitting infront of the laptop.
For a $90 wireless speaker we found the sound quality good and the volume boost great. With more range-intensive audio (like a movie trailer with loud sounds and loud background music) there is some distortion at higher volumes, but we expected that given the price range and targeted use case for this speaker. If your use-case is gaming or movie watched, we would recommend a wired speaker system with dedicated speakers for the different low/high ranges of sound. This speaker setup would work fine for occasional movie watching or older/dialog-intensive movies like old Hitchcock films, but probably wouldn't be as pleasing as a wired solution for the same money with big blockbuster sound-tracks and broad range of sounds (e.g. Transformers).
If you regularly present in meetings at work and wish your laptop were louder (or some similar use-case), the Z515 was made with you in mind. Plop this down on the table infront of the laptop to supplement your presentation and you are all set. No need to lug any wires or cables around with you as the only "connection" the speakers need is the wireless dongle and it fits into a cubby in the back of the speaker itself.
