    Razer Arctosa Budget Gaming Keyboard for Cheapass Gamers

    $40 isn't bad for what the board offers.

      @Birdy: sent it to me I'll pay shipping!

      Arctosa looks like a god send for those who dont want to spend $80 on a keyboard and still get nice features

          Can anyone explain to me just what "anti ghosting" means in the keyboard world? Please?

            I believe it means you can hit more than 3 buttons at a time and have them all function

              Agreed. We need more gamer-friendly KVMs. I've got an ioGear one with the keyboard and mouse plugged into the USB hard drive port so that the full abilities of my HID stuff are visible to the attached PCs. The downside is that I have to hold the switch down for 5 seconds for the HD port to switch. (Since it's intended for an HD which one typically wouldn't switch every time one switches the HID.)

                Hmm, I don't know about that keyboard. $40 seems fair but the addition of the audio jacks either means that more juice is sucked from the USB port or that there are extra plugs that need to be inserted into my system (plus more complex software).

                The anti-ghosting feature is nice, I'll give it that, but I seldom have to press 3 or more keys at the same time.

                Edit: It's listed as $49.99 on Razer's official website. Where did you (Bam) get $40 from?

                NewEgg does not carry the keyboard yet either.

                  From the article I linked to.

                  And you know once sites start carrying it, it will be less than the MSRP.
