Razer Arctosa Keyboard Is A Cut-Down Lycosa (But In A Good Way)

There’s a new budget gaming keyboard in town and its called the Razer Arctosa.

Available in a choice of silver or black, this is Razer’s attempt at a budget keyboard. The Arctosa takes a Lycosa keyboard and strips out some of the flashier features to bring the price in under $50. Gone are the backlighting, the microphone and headphone jacks and the USB extension port, as well as the rubber finish on the keys. What you do get to keep is the anti-ghosting capability, 1ms key response time and ability to program the keys through Razer’s software.

Razer have kindly laid out a comparison chart that lists what you get on each of the three Lycosa-based keyboards – the standard model, the new Lycosa Mirror Edition and this new Arctosa.

One of the most significant differences is the price. The standard Lycosa and Mirror Edition both retail for $79, while the Arctosa comes in at $49 – a saving of $30. That seems like good value, as you’re getting to keep the main gaming features that are the Lycosa’s strongest points.

The Arctosa black-on-black edition and silver-on-black edition are both be available to buy right now.
