Verbatim Tuneboard



There was a time when backlit keyboards with onboard multimedia buttons were found only in the domain of hardcore enthusiasts and gamers. These days, backlighting has become standard issue for many non-office keyboards, and Verbatim is following the trend with the Tuneboard.

At first glance, it’s the integrated speakers that set the Tuneboard apart from the competition. Sporting the ‘hey-we-have-no-imagination’ piano black finish that we’re well and truly over, the Tuneboard has a raised front that houses some surprisingly nice-sounding speakers. There are also keys to control the blue backlighting, volume, and a bass boost key. Above the number pad you’ll find media keys in a familiar PLAY/STOP/FWD/RWD combo.

As mentioned, the speakers produce a fairly decent sound for the size – more than enough for a small home office – if all you do is watch YouTube videos. I avoided the bass boost button like the plague, as all it does is artificially enhance the sound to the point where it starts breaking up.

Overall, the Soundboard is a good keyboard; the keys are well spaced out and the typing action is noisy but comfortable.
