It's a tough call, but 90 warranty vs 2 year warranty it's a big difference. I bought a set of Z5500 used 5 year ago used. After 8 months they broke and I called Logitech even though I had no clue if they were under warranty still. They asked me for the SN # and set me a whole new set without asking much. Luckily I got the new revision that did not have the RCA cables and ugly big power transformer. However, that was a $300+ set back then which I got for $180.
I'm tempted to get this set, but the fact that Amazon charges me taxes now it's making me double think about it.
Good price for this set. It usually hits this price a few times a year through Best Buy and Amazon.
I currently own these and have owned two sets of the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers as well. Very comparable systems. To me, the midrange on the Klipsch sound fuller than the Logitech's satellites but the sub on the Z623 goes quite a bit lower / louder than the Klipsch. I'd say an EQ/processor can probably correct some of the shortcomings on the Logitech midrange. If you're using the set for gaming, movies or bass-heavy music, I think most people would be more pleased with the Logitech system. You'd be surprised how much air that 7" sub can move.
I've also experienced some of the known quality issues with the Klipsch - the first set I picked up from the store broke immediately when I tried to plug in the satellites to the sub. The electronics/layout of the Klipsch sub/amp are where most of the quality issues originate. I'm a fan of Klipsch in general too (loved the old KG4 home speakers and currently use the RW-12d sub in my living room).
Klipsch promedia 2.1's are better and frequently on sale for $99
That is debatable. I listened to both. Had I not done it blind, I might have been swayed to Klipsch, but if you do a blind test, I'd buy either and I ended up with the Logitechs. I paid $100 a year ago & have been very pleased.
