The Razer Arctosa is an entry level gaming keyboard as you can see. It has a nice glossy finish, which i must say, would catch finger prints very fast. The keys are very soft, almost laptop grade soft. Perfect response time, and with 1000 Hz polling, u cant miss a single keystroke/ The WASD key cluster(ie, keys around WASD), which means, the they would respond individually, even if pressed all together.
But these are the tech specs that you probably already know.
A close contender to this keyboard would be the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105.
1. The G105 offers backlit keyboard, an important feature of gaming keyboard missing in Arctosa.
2.The keys thpogh feel a lot softer in the arctosa than the G105.
3.The G105 has some extra programmable keys, although this can be compensated by the macro feature of Arctosa.
4.The Arctosa is very light in weight, ideal for laptop gamers to carry around, unlike the G105.
5.Both have comfortable hand rest, which makes long gaming sessions, much more tolerable.
1.Very soft keys. The key height is kept low, allowing multiple key taps on same key to be much faster.
2.Anti Ghosting around WASD cluster.
3.Very sturdy feel, and lightweight. Built for heavy usage and hardcore gaming.
4.Comfortable Hand rest.
5.Media Keys also available.
6. Works plug and play, although you need the Razer synapse software to program macros.
2.No extra keys other than the standard ones.
3.I found that the it was very stupid of razer to print the characters in Black on black keys. I cant even begin to explain how hard it makes it for me to type. Until you get used to the keyboard and know all the positions of keys, you'r gonna have a tough time typing.
4.The media keys are kind off tacky/cheap , considering the overall quality of the keyboard.
Its brilliant. Just check the video posted along with this. Explains a lot of it.
Summary of features:
1) Slim Keycap Structure with Hyperesponse Technology
Every key press is registered. You won't end up hitting the wrong key because of this Slim Keycap Structure. Very responsive infact its 1000Hz Ultrapolling with a 1ms response time. As explained in the video, the keyboard polls 1000 times every second for a key press.
2) Selective Anti-ghosting Capability around WASD Gaming Cluster
This means that you can press all the four keys W,A,S, and D at the same time and it will respond with all the key press unlike another keyboards.
3) Fully-programmable Keys with Macro Capabilities
Yes, you heard that right. The keys are fully programmable.
4) Gaming Mode
Disable the windows key while gaming. Especially helpful in CS and other FPS where you may accidentally press the windows key while you are jumping of crouching.
Buying a Razer arctosa is heart above brain decision for many gamers. Its a stylish piece pof technology, not for the Indian buyer who asks for the best at the price. its for the crazy in-the-heads like me who wants a RAZER product adorning his nearly perfect gaming rig.
Arctosa is a cheaper choice for anyone who wants a razer product. it performs reasonably well too. doesnt look out of the world like a lycosa but performs equally well. macro keys are a boon. packaging is superb n should have take a good share of the retail price;-P anti ghosting works, software is easy to configure. ur gaming rig will look demonish with this monster parked in front. Enjoy gamers out there..Buy for pure gaming prowness.
Flipkart is awesome as usual gave me the best price, had to get to blue dart office as they din have door step delivery at my place. still wonderful. willl rate it 3.5 for performance 4 for pricing and an instant five for looks n packing.
Thank you so much FlipKart to introduce razer products to India
Perfect for Gamers great packing by razer and Flipkart
but before you buy do watch review video on any video site
Got it in exact 4 days which is exceptional. The packaging was very nicely done and the product was intact with no flaws. A real nice bargain for the price. Well the build quality for the keys could be made better.
Except the backlit this keyboard comes with really nice features. A very sleek and simple gaming keyboard. Perfect for the gamers who like to keep it straight with no distrations. Well if one can afford to buy a costlier one then go ahead but overall it's all a gamer can ask for. So thats Arctosa silver by Razer.
(Waiting for my pending orders to be delivered,Logitech G500 Gaming mouse, TT sports headset and Ozone ground level S gaming pad) Will write a review as soon as I get it and test it. :)
