The Good The Logitech Pure-Fi Express iPod speaker offers an understated design with a small desktop footprint, and it sounds decent when played at low volumes. It includes some nice extras, such as a padded case, a wireless remote, and a line-in cable.

The Bad The Logitech Pure-Fi Express is too boxy to be considered truly travel-friendly. The unit is lacking in bass, and the audio quality is subpar at high volumes.

The Bottom Line The Logitech Pure-Fi Express is a smartly designed iPod speaker that will make a worthy addition to your desk or nightstand, but those who like to blast the tunes should look elsewhere.

Editors' note: The Logitech Pure-Fi Express is the updated version of the Logitech AudioStation Express. The two offer the exact same design and technology; the only differentiating factor is the name.

There's no shortage of made-for-iPod speaker systems on the market, and plenty of them are made by Logitech. Given the company's experience in that area, it comes as no surprise that the AudioStation Express ($99.99) is impressive in both form and function. It's no replacement for a full-on home audio setup--it offers little in the way of bass and should not be played at loud volumes--but this unit is a decent option for bringing your music experience into the office, bedroom, or kitchen.
