Great typing experience.

Keys are prone to showing grease marks.

Tesoro have done a good job with the Excalibur V2. Minor issues aside, it provides a lovely typing experience thanks to the tactile blue switches used.

Today I will be reviewing Tesoro's Excalibur Spectrum. The Excalibur is Tesoro's newest mechanical keyboard. Mechanical keyboards are quite a bit more expensive then your ordinary membrane keyboards. So if you have been thinking of upgrading to a...

Tesoro Excalibur SE Spectrum Gaming Keyboard Review

 

The big thing that separates this keyboard from the original is that it makes use of new optical switches. Designed in conjunction with Gateron the Tesoro

– New optical switch technology ; – Switches mimick the feel and feedback of mechanical keys ; – Solid build quality ; – Completely plug and play

– No programming software included ; – Could be a little taller

I have been using the Tesoro Excalibur SE Spectrum for a few weeks now and I really like it. It is extremely comfortable and I love the blue key switches. I also like knowing that all of my keystrokes are being properly recorded with precision. That is...

Tesoro Excalibur Spectrum Gaming Keyboard Review

 

The Excalibur Spectrum has a very simple keyboard design, but it jam-packed with features. First you have mechanical key switches (Kailh), you can choose

– Mechanical key switches ; – RGB per-key backlighting ; – Different illumination modes and effects ; – Can easily remap the entire keyboard ; – On-board memory stores all of your settings and macros

– Kailh switches do not feel as good as Cherry MX switches ; – Keyboard does not feel as solid as others we have tested lately

So I have been using the Excalibur Spectrum for about two week now and I really enjoy it. The Kailh Blue switches are great and have to be my favorite type of mechanical switch as they give me the best of both worlds for typing and gaming. I do have to...

The Tesoro Excalibur: An affordable mechanical keyboard

 

Tesoro is a relative newcomer in the United States in the gaming peripheral market, but they're trying to make a splash with a high quality mechanical keyboard for less than $100. How does it rate?

After using the keyboard for normal day-to-day use, as well as playing a handful of FPS games, I came away impressed with the Excalibur. The keyboard was responsive during games and, while I'm far from a competitive gamer, I never felt like the...
