If you attended CES earlier this year you might have encountered Tesoro’s booth which featured many of their upcoming products. The recently established company was trying to bring attention as they have just opened their doors to the USA market, with the objective of bringing their unique gaming designs catered for gamers. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at one of their keyboards, the Tesoro Excalibur.
As new as this company is, it is really interesting to see what they will bring to the market. At CES 2014 we got a quick glance of what they were going to offer and overall it looked quite promising. Now that they have released most of their products through their website it is clearly seen that they are affordable, and share very similar specifications from the already great keyboards in the market. This is clearly a good sign and I love to see the small companies bring competition in this already crowded market.
A quick look at the Tesoro Excalibur specifications found in Tesoro’s website reveals pretty good features as expected from a keyboard at this price range. One thing to notice is the absence of Cherry MX switches, however the Excalibur still uses mechanical switches from Kailh which are cheaper than their cherry variants.
