GAMING KEYBOARD REVIEW:

Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an excellent choice at a bargain price

Review Date: February 20, 2016

KEYBOARD REVIEW: Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an excellent choice at a bargain price
The Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard arrived from Amazon well packed. (Click image for large view)

Why I wanted this product:

One of my computers has an old cheap membrane type keyboard, which the key surfaces have started to wear down, and a few select keys have stopped registering/working altogether. I wanted to get a mechanical backlit gaming keyboard and found the Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum RGB Gaming keyboard at a bargain price, almost half the cost of similar comparable featured keyboards.

First impressions, features of the product:
This keyboard offers a full keyboard layout with a no-nonsense design with regards to other RGB gaming keyboards. No extra bells or questionable features to get in the way of what a keyboard is meant to do, type on. It has a very thin bezel surrounding the keys and has a little heft/weight to it enhancing its sturdy, quality built feel. BTW Tesoro means Treasure in Spanish.

Using the product; fit, finish, performance, longevity:
The keyboard is pretty simple to use and configure, no complex software to configure it with regards to built-in backlighting effects or recording macros. There is a driver you can use for this keyboard downloadable on Tesoros website, http://tesorotec.com/drivers/ which allows you to further customized the individual key colors lighting effects, macro creation and is fairly simple to use. The keys feel like your typical mechanical switches and are comfortable to use, (These use the Chinese manufactured Kailh mechanical switches as opposed to the American/German Cherry MX manufactured ones.) The key illumination is even and bright when on it’s brightest setting. The backlit colors stand out and look very attractive when in a dark room. For those who want to buy their first gaming keyboard and are unsure about some of the terminology used for this keyboard I provide the following:

Mechanical switches:
Mechanical keyboards compared to your average membrane/dome keyboard, the keys on a mechanical keyboard have individual key switch mechanisms that register keystrokes instead of sharing a membrane sheath with all other keys. This results in a distinctly different feel when gaming or typing. The basic difference in overall feel using a mechanical keyboard compared to a membrane/dome type keyboard is mechanical switches have been described as having a more direct, succinct feel when typing/pressing keys compared to the membrane/dome keyboards, lest crisp, spongy, rubbery feel.

N-key rollover:
N-key rollover means each key is scanned completely independently by the keyboard hardware, so that each key-press is correctly detected regardless of how many other keys are being pressed or held down at the same time.

6KRO:
6KRO means you can push up to 6 keys + modifier keys (CTRL, ALT, etc.) at once and the keyboard will recognize all of your key presses.

What may be an issue for some?
If you’re a Mac user I would probably avoid this keyboard. I have a few home-built hackintoshes running Mac OS X, Snow Leopard to Yosemite and the Tesoro keyboard would not be recognized correctly under Mac OS X. Other than that I really couldn’t find anything standing out as an annoyance or negative feature when using this keyboard.
