Logitech Cool Gear For Back To School

September 16, 2010 by  
Filed under Featured, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Things have certainly changed since I went away to college. I can remember all of the stuff I had to bring along to move into my dorm. When I am out shopping these days, I see all sorts of useful stuff for the college kids today. They have compact versions of everything to make the most out of what little space you have in those dorm rooms.


I am a gadget girl by nature, and I love to explore all the cool things. I also like having things small and portable. I tend to do a lot of travel and I have to condense my technology related gadgetry into a carry on. When I went to school with my radio/cd player (remember those?), it was this huge thing with a plug attached to it, and it had the option of running on D size batteries, which never lasted more than an hour it seemed.

Today, things are quite different. Cd’s are becoming something of the past and MP3 players and Ipods are taking over the scene. All this talk is making me feel old, but even I am enjoying the newest technology when it comes to listening to music, working on the computer, or being involved with social media.

Logitech has some really great back to school products or products for anyone that can give you high quality technology that is small and compact, yet delivers great results. I am in love with their newest rechargeable speaker system for my ITouch, and it is perfect for a college dorm room as well. Occasionally when no one is looking, I like to crank up my music and dance while cleaning, but the ITouch has limited sound capability without the use of speakers.

I was sent the Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i ($149.99) and my first question was how good could the sound possibly be out of these small portable speakers? I must have been living under a rock because the sound is amazing! One of the greatest features is the fact that they are rechargeable, which means you can move them around the house, or out in the hallway in your dorm, or to the park, or anywhere you want to go without relying on a place to plug them in. I sometimes take them into the bathroom, put on some zen like music and soak in the tub. You can take these to a football game and do a little tailgating too! They even have a remote so you can forward on to your next song without ever leaving your chair.

The speakers were easy to use straight out of the box, and easy to set up with a snap in position stand on the back of the speakers.

Rechargeable Speaker S715i Features

-Eight-hour rechargeable battery*

* Actual battery life will vary with use, settings and environmental conditions. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles.

-Custom-tuned sound

You get two 3” laser-tuned neodymium drivers for a rich mid range, two ½” neodymium tweeters for crisp high notes, and four 2” passive radiators for deep bass.

-Portable design

-Travel case

Your speaker, AC adapter and remote pack neatly into the bag for travel.

-Wireless remote control

You’re in control of important functions like power, volume, play, pause, shuffle, skip and repeat from up to 30 feet (10 meters) away.

-Trayless dock

Your speaker’s innovative dock design works with iPhone as well as any iPod with a Universal Dock Connector.** without the need for those annoying trays.

The only personal drawbacks for me is that the carrying case did not have a strap with it and I had to remove my protective backing on my Ipod in order for it to fit onto the connector for the speakers. So if you wanted to carry it with you, you would have to put it in a backpack or carry it under your arm. Overall, I love these particular speakers, because they sound great and I can put them anywhere in my home, and they are perfect for kids who are going off to school. They take up minimal space and the price is not bad for the wonderful sound quality. The Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i would make a wonderful gift for the college bound graduate, or for anyone who wants to save space and not skimp on sound quality.

Logitech also offers some other really great techy ideas for sending the kids off to school.

    - HD Webcam C510 ($59.99): perfect for students on the go – with its fold and go design, calling and recording in   HD is unbelievably clear and convenient
    - HD Pro Webcam C910 ($99.99):
    perfect for those parents left at home empty nesters…offers full HD 1080p recording and HD 720p video calling
    - Fantasy Collection: unique color designs for mice, keyboards, and notebook accessories that are so fun and full of personality, they’ll inspire even the worst of college dorm rooms


    To celebrate going back to school and wonderful technology in general. Logitech and DoubleBugs would like to offer one lucky reader a cool M310 Wireless Mouse in a really shabby chic red floral pattern, you can see it here.

Here’s what you gotta do!

    I’d like to win the Logitech M310 Wireless Mouse because I’m left-handed – the rest of the family is right-handed – and while I’ve learned to use a mouse ‘backwards,’ so to speak, I’d still like to be able to switch which side of the computer the mouse is on without the hassle of wires getting tangled up or in the way!

  63. Becky S. says:

    Besides the fact that I love to win stuff, I could really use a cordless mouse because no matter what I do our mouse always ends up tangled where you have to pull to get it where it needs to be.

  79. Breanne says:

    I’d like to win because I don’t have a wireless mouse for my laptop. I can’t stand using the touchpad so I had to steal the huge wired one from our desktop. After a while I finally ordered one from Amazon. I kept getting the email saying it was now out of stock and to approve that I would continue to wait. Finally after a month I said screw it. So I’m still wireless mouseless.
