Nice. I just wish Razer would make the prices a little lower. Instead of $79.99, $59.99, and instead of $49.99, $39.99. Their keyboards cost too much for what your getting, IMO.

I have to agree the mice of theirs that I've had were very nice. But I have no experience with their keyboards. I do like the looks of the Arctosa but its hard to tell much about it from the picture.

Razer's build quality is excellent. I have the original Lycosa and it's awesome. A little pricey though.

Most do...you're never getting an actually helpful gaming peripheral; rather just another KEYBOARD with a few buttons moved around and some razzle dazzle.

I can never say it enough: If you want button options and flexibility, get a stand alone keypad; you'll never touch your keyboard again, except to type.

idk if Im the only one to notice, in the pictures, the Arctosa looks like it has the mirror finish and the Mirror is the all black one. :wtf: Noticing the all black keys on the Arctosa gives it away but IMO it looks shinier than the Mirror.

The finish on the Arctosa is mirror, its the keys themselves that don't have the mirror finish.
The Lycos Mirror has the "mirror" finish on the key tops.

Ye-Zeus! It would be the shiniest computer in all of Geekdom!:rockout:
Lol, post of the day award!:laugh: I'm getting one as soon as they are released to replace my Saitek Eclipse. I think it looks beautiful!

Well, I bought the original Lycosa at Best Buy this weekend. I had some coupon's which made the keyboard $76 after tax. I actually like the keyboard a lot. I normally don't spend $40+ on keyboards but I wanted to give the Lycosa a shot. I'm glad I did, because It's awesome. Movement in QuakeLive (only game I've played so far) seems better, smoother. It matches my Deathadder, its got the rubber surfacing, backlit keys that aren't too bright, nice feel, keys aren't too loud, etc. Worth what I paid. I highly recommend it over a Logitech keyboard. It's just as good, if not better that what Logitech has to offer.

If you installed any software with it, uninstall that software. Did you try setting any macro keys or anything?

Uninstall the software that came with the keyboard, or read through the instruction manual on how to set-up macro keys so that you can set it back to default.
