here is another picture of it.
Just some I found .
haha glad you mention that arctosa is a really nice looking keyboard,specially the black edition but whats bad about it is you can't see the key notes because the letters are in black aswell so its hard to see them lol.The silver edition is nice though; looks painted with lighter black and you can see the letters not like the black edition
I'd swap my g15 for that actrosa btw I love its looks.
lol cheapest arctosa i can find so far:
whats the difference between the Lycosa and Arctosa they look the same?
Lycosa has blue LED's thats the only visual difference I saw at a quick glance.
the silver edition of arctosa has blue LEDs aswell i think on the keypads
mostly the software from the drivers i think and they are named different LOL
I'd rather get the silver arctosa tbh. Looks very sleek.
thats retarded. Lycosa is $80 and Arctosa is $45 why would anybody want the Lycosa so the Arctosa doesn't have the non-slip rubber.
I think that's the only difference, and is completely not worth nearly double the price.
heh like I would hook up any connections to my keyboard anyways. sadly people would still pay the extra money for the LED's.
It's like 60-70 on Amazon.
he lives in Russia or somewhere around there didn't you get the Ruble joke I made earlier?
USB jacks would be useful for me, perfect place for the receiver for a cordless mouse, or a flash drive in a hurry (2 front USB ports on a case isnt enough for me, most of the time)
I'd potentially use the headphone jack too, depending on how it affected quality.
Well from my experience with my USB speakers, it's actually kind of annoying when you plug in something to one of these usb based devices, simply because it takes control of the driver and makes it the primary audio device. Just more settings to mess with when you stop using it.
The quality is going to be relatively good based on that it's a digital signal.
doesnt work that way in vista and 7 anymore.
I use a USB headset just for the mic, plugging and unplugging it only sets the mic, leaving the speakers as they were.
I'm having issues then, will have to figure that out.
try setting the default devices as you want them. I set the USB mic to default and the speakers to default - if i unplug the USB mic it reverts to the sound cards mic port, but upon plugging it back in it automatically restores it to the USB.
My sound card doesnt support jack sensing, if thats relevant somehow.
i would love to have to just plug in my headset and mic to my keyboard =p so i might lean onto the arctosa
i would think that any true PC user or gamng enthusiast would know where the key's are WITHOUT looking at the board? heck my mom is almost 50 and she could type 99% of people under the table with her eye's closed and her finger's tied behind her back!
i think someone mentioned it earlier in the thread? most of it is marketing and the people who are subdued by it
yeah it was me.
Logitech G15 probably cost $15-20 tops to manufacture and I am being generous with that because it uses almost the same materials as this model so they are selling it 3-4 times as high thats a pretty big markup and of course keyboard technology is very overlooked so the sales greatly depend on brand name if every gamer had the insight into keyboards like me the Logitech G15 wouldn't exist.
I don't know this thread is so far off base so off topic and all about vendor bashing of logitech . If they are so very bad and of poor quality then why are they the main stream of most pc users ? I do not mean to say that there are not better key boards out there and that some will be far better than logitech in terms of material used but really how bad does it have to be to just diss them all ? And to keep it up for 4 pages ? Then tell me to shut up when I state the facts as I see them as well I have a lot of logitech stuff and have used them with out fail for over 10 years now ?
I am sure that there are way better key boards out there made of steel and hardend heat prof plastic's but how hard do you have to be on a key board that you need one built out of titanium ?
a lil' case of "you can't handle the truth" i think? maybe?
i don't see any logitech bashing going on here, only fact's.
i do however see you getting very defensive/offensive to certain post's....
most, if not all, of ANY mfg's sale's are directly correlated to their marketing strategy.
