          Cool Keyboard. Awesome to find a mac keyboard that is backlit for this price! It has the standard mac keyboard layout, with command, option etc. where they should be. The speakers are the same as on my MBP, but the headphone out sounds the same as the one on my laptop as well. The backlight isn't the world's brightest, but works plenty well in a dark room. I took a star away because the skip and rewind keys don't work on Mac, but they work fine in wondows, so I figure it is a mac issue. The keys feel the same as ones that come bundled with a HP or Dell.

            I use the product on computers that are for CAD drawings and they work great. Sometimes we are in areas with not a lot of light so the lighted keys help a ton.

              Comments about Verbatim USB Speaker Keyboard for Mac:

              One of the most important features of a keyboard is how well does it feel when typing. The Verbatim Keyboard is excellent with a good "throw". The illumination is great, although it would have been better to have it show through the keys, but it doesn't matter that much to me. The speakers are surprisingly good for what they are. Unfortunately because I have a "Hackintosh" along with my Windows 7 the USB port does not recognize the speakers though the volume control works. I have better speakers so, again, no big deal.

              Comments about Verbatim USB Speaker Keyboard for Mac:

              I bought a 20-in. iMac in May 2008, and love it. Its only shortcoming was a keyboard that was hard to see in low light. At first, I pasted large black letters on the keys, but then started searching on the Web for backlit keyboards, which are abundant for PCs, but not for Macs. Just recently, though, I discovered this Verbatim, and it fulfills my purposes to a T (as in QWERTY). It's easy to use, comfortable, quiet, fully visible to my eyes and the ideal accessory for my iMac. The PC-style keys are also better than those on the Apple's flat and spread-out keyboards. Apple has since introduced backlit keyboards for all of its Macbook Pro laptops, but not the Macbook. Until one is available for the iMac, this one is well worth the investment.

                I actually bought this for the light up keyboard--I'm a photographer, and am often color correcting in the dark-so the speakers were more of a bonus for me. That said, they are a good bonus, and the light up keys work as they should.
                The only downside is the volume button seems to work in pre-set chunks, so if I want my music at a particular level sometimes I need to adjust with my computer volume.

                this is a awesome board the best part is the blue backlit lites,the picture on the site does not give it justice you have to see it in person,it has a glossy piano finish which is a eye catcher,it is well made and feels solid when you type,the only 2 bad things about it is that the speakers do not work with other speaker at the same time and the speaker sound quality is not good other then that this is actually better than the apple keyboard my MAC came with,also you can control itunes with this excellent board,there are not that many backLit boards for MAC so this is a real treat to have.

                  This keyboard is one of the best i have ever seen,the back lites are awesome,the only thing is i wish they were alitle bit more brighter but they are still fine the way they are,it looks very modern,the picture on the website does not give it the justice it deserves,you have to see it in person,its a real eye catcher,Another thing is the keys are very quiet compared to the apple keyboard that i had before this one dont get me wrong im a big apple fan but this keyboard beats apple's keyboard ,it even has lites on the side of the keyboard which makes it look like a ufo.Another kool thing is the command key does not have the command icon but has the word spelled out on the button "command"it also has a mute & volume controls which can control your itunes library,it has 2 levels of stand height in the back so you can level your board upright,even the packinging was nice when i got it in the mail.One thing that i did not like is that it does not play with other speakers at the same time.finally a backlit keyboard for MAC it was about time !!!!

                  I work at night while my girlfriend sleeps in my bed which is 5 ft from my pc desk. Simply put, this keyboard does just what it says. It has a pretty blue backlight which illuminates the keys perfectly. The only thing bad about the speakers (which sound decent considering they're in the keyboard) is that they don't play concurrently with the desktop speakers, ie it's one or the other. Also, the keys seem less sensitive than most keyboards I've used. I have to press harder than normal...I find myself often backspacing to press a key I didn't hit, which I'd normally never do.

                    Comments about Verbatim USB Speaker Keyboard for Mac:

                    I am so happy to finally have a backlit keyboard for my Macintosh. This one is very attractive with glowing blue light emitting from the keys, with the ability to turn the illumination on or off. I appreciate the built in speakers which sound great, and the built in headphone jack where I can plug my headphones or external speakers into. The sound quality from the headphone jack is quite good as there is no hard drive noise, a definite plus. Also beside the headphone jack is a microphone jack which is also a microphone itself, so unless you have a high quality microphone of your own to plug in the keyboard comes with one ready to go out of the box as soon as you plug it in. Everything about this keyboard is great except one thing and only one thing which is kind of important for Macintosh users anyway, there are no USB ports on the sides of the keyboard for your mouse and a second peripheral device like ipod or card reader, or whatever. Not to be nit-picky but this is how all Macintosh keyboards function with one built in USB port on each side of the keyboard. You'll have to buy a USB extension cord for your mouse or a mouse with a long cord, I still use the hockey puck ball and track so I'll be shopping for an extension cord myself. One other minor thing, the keys aren't as sensitive as my Macintosh keyboard so you'll have to actively press harder and watch as you type for missing letters, in time I will get use to this. Still this is a very nice keyboard and I have enjoyed not straining my eyes because of the bright blue keys, thanks Verbatim.
