Zebronics is a computer peripheral producing company in India. People outside in India may not be familiar with the name. But it is well-known here for cabins, speakers, keyboards and mice.
If you are on the verge of emptying your wallet and desperately in need of a keyboard, this one fits you the best. No need to spend extra bucks on the mouse as the package includes it also.
In Amazon, it costs only 399 Indian rupees at the time of writing this. Don’t expect high-end features for such a shoelace budget. Nonetheless, it will satisfy the basic needs of a personal computer user.
Zebronics manufactured this keyboard with 15 multimedia keys like play, pause, next, previous etc. which enable you to control music playback without even looking at the monitor.
Are you still in love with PS2 type? Then you should bid a goodbye now. Why because this one supports USB interface only.

This Logitech keyboard price is Rs. 2050 (now) since it has some cool features. Keys don’t make loud noise no matter how hard you tap on it. There will be no delay in getting the desired action.
Some Wi-Fi computer keyboards lack caps lock light. But this wireless keyboard and mouse comes with one. The overall feel of the device is premium and very handy.
Water resistance is a good addition to the specs. The media keys are embedded with function keys. They did it to save space, I think. But in my opinion it would have been more effective, with separate function keys and media buttons.
It has a weight of 603 gm. Dimension is 81 x 127 x 43 mm.
The package includes Mouse, Keyboard, USB receiver, 1 AA battery in the mouse, 2 AA batteries in the keyboard and a user manual.
