Ok, I have always wanted the Logitech Z-5500s but they're a bit pricy at almost $280 on Newegg. Well, they now carry the Creative G500 GigaWorks ProGamer, which was a cheaper alternative at $225. I was wondering, is the Creative good enough for its cost, or should I wait a bit longer and save up for the Z-5500s?

I've never had experience with those. But I've owned alot of Creative stuff, and their products seem top notch to me. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. [edit] but the logitech is much sexier

Wait, save, go Logitech. These things (the Logitechs, which I have currently playing the Gathering's [Mandylion]) are sexy, come with a wicked control pod sporting the standard 3 miniplug analogue-in ports, plus toslink optical and RCA S/PDIF coaxial digital-ins. The pod also decodes Dolby Digital ES audio streams, has a miniplug line-in and headphone-out on the side, and a slick infrared remote. The DD ProLogic II is wicked sweet, too. They're definitely worth it. The Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1's are the only other setup out there that can match the Z-5500's for sonic quality in multimedia speakers, and I think they lack the digital inputs.
