Computer Speakers

For the gamer & pc home theatre: Logitech Z-5500

In our review of the Z-5500, we were very impressed with the imaging and sound when set up around a PC. In bigger rooms, they don't quite stand up, but we're talking about PC Hardware here, right? The Z-5500 are probably the best surround PC speakers you can buy today, and that's why we're reccommending it this year.

For people who care more about looks: Harman Kardon Soundsticks II

Let's face it; not everyone listens to music, games, and movies on their PC. Sometimes it's just used for windows messages, podcasts, and the occasional MP3. In other words, there are still a lot of people stuck halfway between PC and Mac. This is the type of person who would put the subwoofer on the desk, just because it's pretty. If you are shopping for someone like that (a girlfriend, perhaps?), the Harman Kardon SoundSticks II set is probably the coolest looking PC speaker set ever made. It very likely doesn't sound that great, but your Apple wannabe friend won't care!
