Arctic K381 Multi-Function Keyboard

We have just posted our review of the Arctic K381 Multi-Function keyboard.  This is the first keyboard from Arctic and they spend a lot of time making it look good and striping away all  the unnecessary bulk.  In the end, it's a sleek unit that offers great office functionality, but not much on the gaming side.  Take a look at our review for all the details.

Today we'll be taking a look at the Arctic K381 multi-functional keyboard. Arctic-Cooling has been making some well engineered products for some time now ranging from computer cases, power supplies, high end audio, and of course CPU and VGA coolers. Now lets see if their very first keyboard can stand up to the rest of their great products. . .

Please feel free to post your thoughts and comments right here!

The white version of this keyboard looks very "Apple-ish", although I'm sure the Apple version would be much for than $25 bucks

As far as "ghosting" issues, did you actually notice the keypresses worse than your existing keyboard - or is it pretty standard?

the keys take very little pressure to press...I was pressing E to move foreward, S to strafe left and when I tried lean W is when the beeping started.
