5 out of 5 eggsRAZER Arctosa

Pros: It is a nice keyboard overall. It is about as close to a mechanical keyboard because it is sturdy and lasts a while. The keys are pretty flat and push easily. You get used to typing on it in a week or two of using it. A good keyboard for gaming, definitely worth $45. I eat near my keyboard a lot and there are even some crumbs in it and it still types nicely, I may even spilled a bit of my drink in there too.

Cons: I do not have much to say here....

Other Thoughts: I though the keyboard came with LED's. It is more money than most of the keyboards I have had but it is worth it. Honestly it is a bit cheap for the price it is.

2 out of 5 eggscheap

Pros: Looks good.
Slim profile.
Key press felt good.

Cons: Lightweight, cheap feeling plastic
Keys stop working
Macro software non-intuitive
Angled feet slip
Key press is somewhat loud

Other Thoughts: Over the past year this keyboard has given more issues than I care for. Over time, several keys stop working. The keyboard itself feels of cheap quality. I was expecting more from the Razer name, especially for what I bought it for. Never could get the macro software to work, ended up just using AutoHotkey. After this one finally lost use in another key, went back to my old Saitek Eclipse keyboard as a backup. Worked like a charm, just like it has for more than 8 years. Very disappointed in this product.

4 out of 5 eggsGood solid keyboard for gaming

Pros: Razer Synapse 2.0 allows you to basically make any key on this thing do whatever you want it to do. The keyboard is very responsive until the keys start to get hard to press down 10 months later(see cons)

Cons: Cant get the Media buttons to work with VLC and the keys (after 10 months) start getting hard to press down. It's not a fluid typing experience like it was when I first got it. Upgraded to the DeathStalker and I am so glad I did.

Other Thoughts: Good, cheap keyboard from a great company. Did everything I wanted it to do, but it was time for an upgrade. You get what you pay for with this.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good keyboard

Pros: Its a cool looking keyboard.

Cons: The keyboard is like any gaming computer, i spent too much money on this useless product. The software blue screened 3 of my best computers. Don't waste your money with this piece of c@#* just buy a Corsair or Azza keyboard hopefully, this review saved you guys a lot of wasted money.

1 out of 5 eggsBad quality

Pros: No pros, the plastic on this keyboard compared to the razer lycosa is thin and as a result its unstable while typing.

Cons: Thinner plastic then on the lycosa, media keys are not touch controlled.

Other Thoughts: Its like the Razer Lycosa keyboard except the plastic is thinner and the media keys are not touch control, they are just buttons under the panel.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Entry-level Keyboard with a RAZER pricetag.

Pros: - Standard quality keyboard that has taken over a year of abuse
- Keys are organized in a way that are familiar and comfortable
- The wrist-rest comes off (much more functional this way)
- Is a pretty stylish keyboard considering its quality
- You aren't losing any value here. This keyboard is exactly what is advertised.

Cons: - Not a mechanical keyboard. The keys aren't necessarily uncomfortable but they don't feel nearly as good as mechanical.
- Very hard to clean. The keys have a spread taper to them that seals the innards to a point where lots of tiny stuff can get in but doesn't allow for crumbs, hair, etc to fall back out. This is normal for a keyboard but with these types of keys it is more of an issue. You wont find a membrane keyboard that makes it easier though.
- The wrist rest. Fortunately it comes off. I've thrown mine away.
- The cost. This is RAZER quality so you are getting what you pay for. The thing is though that for a little more you can buy a mechanical that will be completely worth it in the long run. If you want a membrane keyboard then you shouldn't be spending more than $20.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard has performed well for what it is over the past year. It looks good on my desk and hasn't ghosted once. I would recommend it if it were the sale price that it was when I got it. At $45 you should just get a black mechanical keyboard. Even if it isn't RAZER. I just picked up a BlackWidow and since I am a regular gamer I have found it worth every penny.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: Affordable price, responsive keys, pretty good looking, basic gaming keyboard. It is not mechanical but it fairs pretty well.

Cons: No backlighting, its a bit big if you have a smaller desk.

Other Thoughts: Pretty good keyboard for its price, got it for 30 bucks, just wish it had a black light.
Used it to replace my eclipse II I had for years.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent keyboard so far, quick and quiet

Cons: Status LEDs are really bright, and I'm adjusting to the slightly different key layout/feel to this keyboard compared to the old keyboard I had...not that that is a bad thing.

3 out of 5 eggsRazer Arctosa

Pros: Shiny
Decently built
Multimedia keys

for 10 dollars more you could get a mechanical keyboard
it is basically just a jazzed up membrane keyboard, nothing special

Other Thoughts: I think it is better without the wrist rest

5 out of 5 eggsAttractive and Reliable

Pros: This is a sleek looking keyboard. I was looking for something for gaming, to match my Razer mouse and pad.

Mine is nearly two years of age, and it has worked flawlessly. If you get any gunk between the keys, they are simple to pop off and clean. There are flips underneath for additional height (it does have some slide). It's not going to win any awards for eorgonomics, but the palm rest is a bonus, smooth and easy to scroll your hands on. If you leave your locks on the lights can be distracting, but they easily notify you if they were accidentally pressed. Media keys adorn the top right. The price is reasonable.

Key travel is the main pro here. It's short and smooth, quiet enough.

Cons: As I said above, it does slide a little with the flips extracted. My desk however is the problem here, it has a raised edge.

Other Thoughts: My next keyboard may be mechanical, but I'm not certain if they are too noisy. That, and I prefer shorter travel for quicker key press.
