Default Logitech 5.1 Speakers - Colors don't match

I'm either getting the Z5300e or the Z-5450 5.1 system for Christmas. They are both around the same RMS power (280 vs 310watt), but the 5450 are wireless (wireless REAR speakers).

Of those who have had either/both, what are your thoughts? I've read several reviews of each. I'm convinced that the power and sound quality and craftsmanship are great. But the wireless aspect of the 5450 rear speakers could be a problem from what I've read (don't work sometimes, wireless network interference).

Anyone have opinions on these?

I think that Z5500 are way better then both of those. But they do cost a bit more, i paid like $250 i think at the time i got them.

Actually, the 5450s are MORE expensive than the 5500s, oddly enough, at most places. Probably just the wireless aspect. Amazon has both within $10 of each other. Some places have the 5450s $100 more than the 5500s. Logitech themselves price them at $500 while the 5500s are $400.

But yes, the 5500s are what I would prefer. 500+W RMS and NO worries about wireless signal interference. Almost 200 more watts of power for up to $100 less is a no-brainer. Judging by the measurements of the box under the tree here though, I don't think it is the 5500s

I'll be happy even with the 5300s. But I'm lucky to have either of those 3 sets. I will just have to be careful about other wireless systems I have in the house if I have the 5450s.

Being wireless, how do they power? I'm guessing 75-100w RMS/ch for the rears and thats an awful lot of batteries.

The two rears are ~42W, the other two are 38 I think. The center around the same. Sub is 116W.

The rears actually plug into wall outlets to get their power.
