    Re: Decent 2.1 Speakers around £35

    I was in the same situation a few weeks ago after I accidently destroyed my T40's and decided to go for a dedicated sub this time. I eventually plumped up the extra for the Logitech Z4's over the X-230's, I think for me the extra sound power justified the extra £10 or so.

    The X-230s are decent enough though.

    Thumbs up Re: Decent 2.1 Speakers around £35

    I have a set of Logitech X230s. They are a good set of speakers; plenty loud enough - I have never had the sub at over half power, and it still provides good explosions Generally good sound too - no complaints really.

    The newer X240s are cheaper (by about £5), but that's because they aren't multiple driver in the satellites, although I suspect they'll still be fine for gaming. I heard that they don't go as loud though, if that's important to you.
