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.

Razer Arctosa 'Black' Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Let's talk keyboards, shall we? They have letters A-Z and numbers 1-0, some F Keys, and a ton of other keys that have seemingly found their way into your typing vocabulary. But are all keyboards the same? Some would say, for the most part yes, and I...

A Plethora of Macro and Profile Settings ; On The Fly Profile and Macro Switching ; Sleek Piano Black Design ; Comfortable ; Responsive ; Able To Set Programs As Hot Keys

The Construction of the Keyboard makes it feel Easily Breakable ; All Black Design Is A Fingerprint and Dust Magnet ; Macro Keys Are Not The Easiest To Setup

Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard

 

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 able to...

Razer Arctosa

 

The Razer Arctosa, although it's missing a few nice features, is still a very capable gaming keyboard. It is responsive and provides a few conveniences that a regular keyboard doesn't. Its sleek but durable design can handle whatever most gamers can...

Every key on the Razer Arctosa is programmable

Surprisingly, Razer didn't include backlighting in this keyboard

Razer is a big name in computer gaming but this keyboard falls a little short.

Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard

 

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

Lightweight for easy transport ; Anti-ghosting features

Doesn't feel solid ; Lacks killer "gaming" features

The Arctosa looks more like a regular keyboard than something that's been designed with gaming specifically in mind and it mostly acts like one too. If the design does appeal to you, the slightly more glossy (and expensive AU$189) Lycosa keyboard,...

A solid contender from Razer, if you're looking for a basic gaming keyboard.
