RAZER ARCTOSA INTRODUCTION
Razer is a well known company in the gaming community and offers a variety of peripherals and other gear tailored specifically to PC gamers. They have recently released two new gaming keyboards - the Lycosa and the Arctosa. While the pair of keyboards have many of the same features, the Arctosa is meant to be a no-frills, entry level gaming keyboard that provides many of the benefits of high-end models at a price that is easier on the wallet. In turbulent economic times like these, consumers want to get the best bang for the buck they can and the Arctosa aims to fit that bill. It may not have the snazzy backlighting or non-slip rubber coated keys like its more expensive brother, but the Arctosa still looks to be a solid contender in the gaming keyboard market. Come along with me as I take a closer look.
RAZER CORPORATE PROFILE
Razer collaborates with gamers to develop, manufacture and market cutting-edge gaming peripherals utilizing proprietary technologies that give gamers the competitive edge. We reinvented the computer gaming industry by bringing this competitive edge to gamers when professional computer gaming was in its infancy. In the mid 90s, with the advent of networked gaming and competitive first-person-shooter (FPS) games, gamers found that their legacy peripherals were inhibiting rather than enhancing their gameplay.
In 1999, the Razer Boomslang™, the stuff of gaming legends, was launched after much research. Featuring an unprecedented precision of up to 2000 dpi when other mice maxed out at 400 dpi, the Razer Boomslang, powered by proprietary opto-mechanical technology, offered up to five times the accuracy of other gaming mice. It came as no surprise when professional gamers worldwide such as Jonathon “Fatal1ty” Wendell and Sujoy Roy readily adopted the Razer Boomslang as their gaming mouse of choice. In just two years, more than 100,000 Razer Boomslangs were sold by Christmas.
Headquartered in Carlsbad , California , Razer collaborates with gamers to develop, manufacture and market cutting-edge gaming peripherals utilizing proprietary technologies that give gamers the competitive edge. Razer products have earned critical praise and won multiple awards from around the world for their precision, sensitivity, usability and distinctions in product design. Engineered to near perfection, Razer's reputation of being the leader in gaming peripheral technology is embodied in every single Razer product.
