Arctic Cooling K381 keyboard

  • Excerpt: Cooling products are Arctic Cooling's main gig but over the years the Swiss company has branched out into many other product categories. For this review I've inspected the Arctic K381, a basic keyboard for people who don't need dozens of bells & whistles. If you're looking for a gaming keyboard you better stop reading here, but if you desire a keyboard that is as compact as possible the K381 may be of interest to you.

Arctic K381 Keyboard Review

The Gadgeteer
6 November 2010
  • Excerpt: You’re probably in the same boat, or cube anyway, when it comes to keyboards.  I’ve tried a variety and thought the Arctic K381 which claims to be “perfect for comfortable typing” and allows “continuous typing without fatigue” was worth a try. The keyboard comes from a company called Arctic Cooling so at first I thought the keyboard might have a fan inside of it.  A closer look at their website, however, touts the keyboard as a very slim, compact unit.
  • Pros: Small, slim
  • Cons: Keys can stick if hit at an angle

  • Conclusion: Overall the K381 turned out to be a very nice keyboard. The MSRP of this board is 17,45 €, which is a bit of a bargain and makes it all the more tempting. The compact size and nice typing touch are the two main points, no doubt about it, but I think it also looks pretty good. Sure, an aluminum version would look even better, but for the price this isn't half bad.
  • Pros: Compact, Price, Nice feel/"touch", Quiet
  • Cons: -

Arctic Cooling Arctic K381 Multi-Function Ultra-Slim Keyboard Review

5 October 2010
  • Summary: Usage At first glimpse I thought I was going to have some difficulties using the keyboard since it was very small, but to my surprise I was wrong. The keyboard was easy to get used to. The keyboard isn’t silent and it isn’t loud, it’s kind of in the middle in terms of noise output by the keys. The keys themselves are easy to press and make typing, like this review, fun again. The keys just seem to flow when you type.

  • Conclusion: The world of technology has changed greatly within the last couple of decades -- from the good old video cassette player and monochromatic televisions, to the latest high definition LED backlit LCD flat panel televisions, Blu-ray players, and high performance surround sound systems -- it is so easy to overlook how far we have come. Many of us who are technology enthusiasts can relate to this, and I am no exception.

Arctic Cooling K381 Keyboard

23 August 2010
  • Summary: The Arctic Cooling K381 presents a relatively fine mix of features at a lowish price. At $24.95 the K381 is only a little more than your standard run of the mill keyboard. The design is more attractive than the very cheapest stuff on the market, but it comes at a price both monetary and performance wise. The keys are of dubious quality and the quality of the construction is below that of most $20 keyboards.
  • Pros: Low price, Looks alright, Modern styling with chiclet style keys, Good amount of features for a cheap keyboard, Very slim line design, Size
  • Cons: Flimsy build quality, Comfort

Arctic K381 Multi-Function Keyboard

8 August 2010
  • Summary: Well, I am writing this review with the Arctic K381 keyboard and i must say that it is quite comfortable. Being as low profile as it is, the heels of my hands rest on my desk surface and I feel I could type for hours without discomfort. The keys have a well defined pressure point that feels sharp and clear which also makes the keyboard very quiet.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Slim and Quiet, Comfortable, Plug and play USB, 6 foot cable
  • Cons: A little flimsy, Not recommended for gaming

Arctic K381 Keyboard

31 August 2010
  • Summary: Bei der Arctic K381 handelt es sich nicht nur um eine neue Produktsparte für Artic, sondern auch auf dem Markt um ein Produkt, was aus der Reihe fällt und Potenzial besitzt. Arctic K381 Keyboard (Zum Vergrößern anklicken!) Die einzeln eingefassten Tasten lassen Schmutz endlich kaum noch eine Chance. Krümel in der Tastatur gehören damit der Vergangenheit an.
