Verbatim Speaker keyboard with backlighting and USB speakers on board
Verbatim isn’t one of the heaviest names when it comes to keyboard manufacturing and the company is much better known for its high-quality storage solutions. The company has now targeted PC users to get rid of the space occupying speakers and entangling cables with the Verbatim Speaker Keyboard. This keyboard is perfect for people who now have external speakers with no on/off switch. It features integrated dual stereo with volume and bass keys. It also has back lighting for nighttime illumination with play and pause control on the media console. The device connects by USB and the USB connection powers the dual speakers, backlighting, and keyboard. The Speaker Keyboard comes with a microphone jack, but it does not equip a headphone jack. Along with the speakers, the media controls add to your convenience, by directly controlling the system sound via its onboard chipset.
The Speaker Keyboard sells for about $75.00, but you can find one at a discount on Amazon if you purchase before December 23. The device is compatible with Windows as well as the Mac OS.
