Razer gaming hardware has graced our desks many times, and generally it’s all top-notch stuff, so it was with relatively open arms that I welcomed the Arctosa keyboard into my life for review this month.Some gamers might remember the popular...

If the Arctosa had greater height adjustment, an adjustable wrist rest and deeper keys, it would be ideal. That's not to say it's bad, as there's a sensible number of features, is comfortable to use and doesn’t cost a small fortune, but it...

Presentation was good, the package was very attractive, and the software had a cool look to it. As said before, the color scheme was very unfortunate. The appearance was nice and elegant, but not friendly. Black on black does not work. The shape and...

As a strict typing surface, Id say that the Arctosa was above average. Its the sort of machine thats responsive and comfortable, but for some may lack the weight or the lettering to satisfy. I felt like I could type about ten words...

While it would be nice to have the Razer profiles work on Linux along with support for macro customization and other features provided by the Windows-only software, Razer is not the only vendor producing gaming keyboards without support for Linux....

s The Arctosa has generated mixed feelings from me towards it. On the one hand, the macros and profiles features work well, and the responsiveness of the keys is great. As a gaming keyboard, there are enough features there to earn that tag. But on the...

While everything on the Arctosa worked as advertised we didnt like the black on black scheme of the keys and found that trying to type was a little difficult for someone who wasnt a touch typist. We also found that gaming with the Arctosa in games...

When it comes to gaming keyboards, its typically an all or nothing commitment. Spending a ton of money will buy you a myriad of features and great performance, but some of those extras you may not need or will use very infrequently. Strip away the...

The Razer Arctosa 'Black' Gaming Keyboard is a great addition to anyone's gaming arsenal or daily computing. Although the keyboard is very light, and feels somewhat flimsy, believe me, it's not. It is made from a very lightweight but...

Unlike standard keyboards, which have generated that annoying multi-keypress beep on more than one occasion for me, the Arctosa took every key input I gave it without complaint. Using the Arctosa for FPS gaming was a joy, at least once you were...

You could be easily fooled into thinking that the Arctosa is just a regular keyboard, and not the gaming titan it claims to be....

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 80

Fr vergleichsweise wenig Geld bietet die Razer Arctosa eine ordentliche Ausstattung gepaart mit einem tollen Anschlag. Trotz dieser positiven Kritik bleibt die Tastsache, dass sehr anspruchsvolle Zocker einige Funktionalitten vermissen...

Sur le papier, l'Arctosa a pour lui un design plutôt sympathique, une grande souplesse dans la programmation de ses touches, ce qui pourrait en faire le clavier rêvé des joueurs de MMO, par exemple, une grande réactivité et...

Anslaget på Arctosa är som nämnt tidigare väldigt lätt. Gillar man lätta tangentbord bör man definitivt testa detta. Dock så är knapparna farligt plastiga. Har man planerat...
