Had this for 2 years, nice design and all, survived a lot of punishment, but the black keys.... it gets annoying. Granted my touch typing improved, but for occasions when you want to find one key when you're not in full swing typing... it gets annoying.

Razer? Really?

Definietly expected more. Two main points:
- as stated many times below - you just can't see the letters on keys without direct, bright light, the image above is highly inacurate,
- noticed when playing Skyrim for a few hours that you have to constantly apply pressure on the WASD keys - more pressure than you would normally expect from this design; this Is noticeable and this IS annoying,
Overall I switched to my previous keyboard and gonna look for something different. Expected more from Razer - this product is a fail.

Not as good as was expecting from Razer

I gave it the 3 stars because all the buttons work atm (only 2 weeks old) which i guess is the point of it, but everything about it feels too cheap, its too light/grips on bottom arnt good enough as tends to slide around if on smooth surface, buttons dont have the solid feel i would expect from razor and the media buttons are quite cheap (feel awefull to use). so to summerise im dissapointed as i could get a keyboard of the same build quality with the same fetures for less. (but as many have said, the stickers were cool, at least my kid liked them)

DECENT Keyboard

A few reviewers are saying "It's impossible to see the keys" ect, this is actually a fault with the keyboard if you google the backlighting on the Arctosa from google you'll find hundreds of people with the same problem. You should be able to get it replaced by Razer themselves after submitting a tech support ticket on there website which itself proves troublesome because it has no UK support section, still worth a try though.

FOR THE Ulimate gamer

Hi All, As the reviewer mentions below you cannot see what the keys say as they are all in black but if you are the ulimate gamer like me you should know what the keys are by now, Razer Arctosa is the best keyboard i have ever owned now i have the mamba im always the winner!!!

Bad keyboard

Like the previous reviwer said, its impossible to see which keys are which because its also black. I guess its ok if you can type without looking. No way worth the price (as with all razer products) but very nice keyboard to type on though.

looks cool but has issues

it looks really good but im finding it very hard to type on.
the keys arent shiney like they look in the picture, and the numbers and letters are nearly impossible to see because there printed black on black keys.
the keyboard doesnt work until you run the drivers cd.
it seems like you pay more for the really nice box it came in than for the quality of the product.
i like the stickers it came with though!

Excellent budget gaming keyboard

I picked one of these keyboards up last week after my old Saitek Eclipse threw in the towel. My first impressions are that it feels and looks a bit cheap but the keys are really light and nice to type on. The WASD gaming cluster is a really nice feature if your an FPS gamer, gone are the days of keyboard beeps when your holding down multiple keys.

I'd have given this keyboard 5* if it had backlit keys like the Lycosa does but I wasn't willing to shell out an extra
