    Oops, fixed.

    You would think I would have got the hang of this by now...

    Lot of money for 2.1 speakers that don't really have any toys (digital input, remote control, etc...)

    My Logitech Z-5400s would probably trounce these, and they cost me £240 at the time, for 5.1, with three digital inputs, 6-chan analogue input, infra red remote, and the Dolby ProLogic II / DTS decoding.

    Nice design, the satellites look like they could do a good job of dispersing the treble, but it's a very steep price for what you're getting...

    Yeh, the price is definitely a negative point of them, and I do agree that the Logitech's perform well. The Razer's you would choose not just for the sound but because the look appealed - they really do stand out.

    Though part of me wishes the logos on the top of each speaker glowed too.

    I would go for those over any audophile Logitech ones :)
    If only they didn't cost £300 (and I didn't already have a 5.1 set of speakers) :(

    I saw these at the Kustom stand at i33, I'l probbaly be getting myself a set when they are released, the sound quality was phenom and I was really impressed with the control method.

    They'll be excellent for my ipod and 360.

    They're a whole lot bigger than I imagined they'd be.

    They look nice for sure, but I can't shake the feeling that I'd want something meatier for £300, especially when it's only a set of desktop 2.1.

    doubt it, it's not going to be much use on it's own anyway?

    I've got some light up drinks mats, the LEDs change colour and make (light coloured) drinks look funky.

    You can get them from general gadget shops, and probably a bit cheaper than buying Razer speakers for that purpose :)

    Ironic that someone with H/Ks doesn't have a taste of other strange designs ;)
