I am getting them both for a great deal lantic 2.1 for 20 and the logitech x530 5.1 for 25. Now i have to choose is it worth it to pay the extra 5 and get the x530 or buy the lantics. I know there both different in regards to 5.1 and 2.1.

And for those, that want to know, i will be using them for pretty much everything mainly music. When i watch movies i usually use my plasma tv, that has a surround sound connected to it.

Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I recommend deleting "+rep" from your post because their rules strictly forbid verbally offering Rep for help. They say that it's "rep abuse". Another reason is, it makes it look like anyone who replies is only replying to get a Rep+ out of you.

Anyway, as an owner of the VS4121 system, I can say that if you have a good sound card or other device (i.e. not onboard audio), then you will be very happy with this system. You have a treble knob, a bass knob, a very clear sound after adjusting Graphic EQ settings, great low end thanks to a wooden subwoofer cabinet and a very attractive physical appearance.

I haven't owned or tried the X-530 system yet, but I'm not seeing a treble knob. That comes in handy.

However, this reviewer seems to like the X-530 system:

My brother had the X-530, thing broke apart little after warranty expired.
As for quality... Nothing fantastic. My very old Creative fps1500 (4.1) was as good as the X-530, and the fps1500 wasn't very good to begin with. But the fps1500 still works unlike the X-530

My VS4121s are way past the warranty and still work just fine.

Actually, the power button has me worried that if I turn them off then I won't be able to turn them back on. So, they are on 24/7 now. Other than that, they still perform extremely well and have a very solid construction.

Hey Tiihokatti: would you say that the subwoofer is made out of plastic or wood?

Thanks two cables i just went with the lantics and they are great, doesn't take up to much room also, which is another plus for me.

hehe yeah, I don't have enough room for a surround system either. Fortunately, the VS4121 is a quite a nice speaker system for being considered "Value Computer Speakers" by Altec Lansing.
