Razer Arctosa Gaming Keyboard

Packaging & Contents

Packaging

The keyboard is supplied in an attractive cardboard box, which is printed on all sides with information about the product. I must say that the packaging made me eager to see what was in it. The top of the box features a nice image of the keyboard and the Razer logo and product name, while the bottom has text that goes into detail of the features. There are also a few inset photos of the keyboard.

Upon removing the outer box, we are greeted with the inner box, which has a hole cut out, into which a nice looking cardboard wallet is inserted. The wallet is emblazoned with the Razer logo, and does look quite eye catching. Inside the inner box, we finally get to the keyboard. There is nothing else in the main compartment. The keyboard is placed in a plastic envelope.

Overall, the packaging is very attractive, and does it's job. The addition of the cardboard wallet was a pleasant surprise, and does give a nice, well thought finish to the packaging. There were no unexpected surprises regards the packaging. The information contained on the outer box would be enough for a customer to make an informed opinion of the product.

So now we get down to the nitty gritty, and see what we get for our money. Obviously, there is the keyboard, then there is a quite good quality manual, installation CD, a certificate of authenticity and two Razer logo decals. Considering the price point that the Arctosa is at, the package has some nice little touches and makes you feel that Razer have spent some effort on their products and packaging.

Looks like our ninja posting and editing have messed up the forum xD

Good review, shame about the cheapness of the keyboard itself I was still looking for a lowprofile gaming keyboard, but looks like I'm going to stick with my logitech ultrax for now.

I had a couple of Di Novo's and the Logitech software was a PITA. That and the bluetooth connection wasn't the most reliable either. They do look the mutts nutts though

No, it doesn't have some features of the Lycosa, such as the backlit keys, USB port, and non slip surface on the keys.

I had Lycosa, approximately 2 months.

I actively play UT3, approximately 1-3 hours every day.

Through 2 мясяца, the covering on WASD has been wiped.

I have returned Lycosa in shop and have taken away the money.

I heard about similar from other owners Lycosa.

I do not think that a covering on Arctosa better, than at Lycosa.

I have this keyboard but the black on black one and i really like it. I dont think it feels cheap either, the only thing i dont like is the finger marks it gets on it due to the glossy black finish!
