    I've used my X-230's for years w/o issue, get em cheap refurb'd back in late 2006, they have been solid ever since. Like anything they don't need an add in sound card, as they're amplified via amp in the sub housing, but better sound quality from an add-in sound card is noticable, at least to me it was. Not the end of the world as I ran onboard for well over a year on just onboard audio w/no complaints. Now-a-days I primarily listen to headphones though, I found ones that treat me well and a good sound card to drive them, I get the sound how I want and louder than I can drive my speakers w/o getting complaints.

    I don't know about the AL's or Edifier's, but I do know I have really enjoyed my X-230's, bought my ex a set of more expensive creative 2.1's, that were absolute garbage in comparison.

    I'd go with the Logitech

    Logitech speakers are solid and sound great for music, movies, and games...

    Logitech's are overrated and generally crappy. But they do have great bass. But thats pretty much it. Edifier C3 looks solid (but i never heard them) and from my personal experience i'd go with Altec Lansing. Plus the model of AL you're looking at has slightly more powerful bass than it's common for other models. At least got that feeling of overwhelming bass when i was testing them. It can be fine-tuned and then they sound great.

    I have agree that generally speaking Logitech doesn't make the best speakers; however, there are some exceptions. The X-230 are one. The X-210 is crap compared to the X-230 so that comparison is not a good parallel.

    Anyway, glad you made a choice.

    ok im gonna say this, On-board sound no matter what still doesn't compare to the CL, HT-Omega, Auzentech and Blue Gears Sound boards, when you Mix with a good set of speakers the sound is actually outstanding. Also to bash logitech for 1 set of speakers doesn't do justice on judging whats good and whats bad. Ive had the Logitech X230 Speaker set for 3 years and its Outstanding for a 2.1 Set.

    Oh, I love both sets of VS4121's that I have (1 @ home and 1 @ Work). I just picked up my last set for $24.00 @ the Xoxide.com selloff. I have extreme confidence in Altec Lansing. After all, they have JBL in their lineage.

    210 and 230 are completely different speakers.

    X230, 530 and 540 are great speakers sets, as well as their famous Z-5500 and other high end sets.

    I love my X-530's I use them as 2.1 when I bring them with my MP3 player into work at grocery store and you have no issue hearing it across the entire grocery store, very happy with the money I spent on them.
