Tesoro have been on a tear recently, rapidly improving their mechanical keyboards with the latest technologies while maintaining a competitive price point. We first looked at the Excalibur, their no-nonsense gaming keyboard with a traditional design and static one-colour backlighting. They then followed that up with the Excalibur RGB, which allowed you to choose from a range of colours for the backlight. Now we’ve reached the ultimate form with the Excalibur Spectrum, which allows you to choose each key’s backlight colour individually to make the keyboard of your dreams.
I’m excited to see how the Excalibur performs and how much of a difference the [...]
RGB backlighting – where keys can be lit up in millions of different colours instead of just one – is the latest craze in mechanical keyboards. Corsair announced their exclusive Cherry MX RGB keyboards last year, and Razer was quick to copy the move with its own Kailh RGB keyboards under the Chroma brand. Now, Tesoro are introducing their own RGB keyboard using Kailh switches: the Excalibur RGB.
The original Excalibur proved to be dependable if unremarkable when we reviewed it, but adopting RGB makes it a lot more desirable. In this review, we’ll see how the Excalibur RGB compares to its predecessor and other RGB keyboards on the market.
Today we’re looking at a gaming mouse with a high-powered sensor, a weird name and an even more unusual shape: the Tesoro Gandiva. This laser mouse boasts an 8200 DPI sensor, the Avago ADNS-9800, and eight programmable buttons. It’s an impressive total, but much of a difference do they make? Let’s take a look.
Earlier this year we took a look at the Tesoro Lobera mechanical gaming keyboard, which impressed us with its strong build quality, gaming features and multi-colour backlighting. Today, we’re looking at a simpler alternative named after another famous sword: the Excalibur. This less expensive keyboard uses the same Kailh mechanical switches, but dispenses with the unusual shape and multiple backlighting colours of the Lobera. The Excalibur looks promising, but how does it measure up?
The Tesoro Lobera Supreme is a mechanical keyboard with an RGB backlight, provided with brown, red, black or blue Kailh switches. Today, I’m taking a look at the blue switch version, graciously provided by Tesoro themselves. Let’s see how this gaming keyboard compares to other mechanicals on the market!
