Tesoro Excalibur Review

Product on Review: Tesoro Excalibur
Manufacturer: Tesoro
Street Price: £70

Coming in at a relatively inexpensive price, you would be forgiven for thinking, 'So, how did they manage that then?'. The answer lies in the switches. Opting to use the cheaper, Chinese made Kailh switches over the Cherry MX is likely the first indicator as to why you are looking at an illuminated mechanical keyboard at an affordable price. Though initially receiving bad reputation, the Kailh switches have reportedly improved and have recently been adopted for use in various well known products. The Excalibur comes in the choice of Kailh brown, blue and red which should cater for the majority of people.

Beyond a no frills design, the Excalibur also includes 512Kb of onboard memory for up to 200 macros or 2000 keystrokes that can be saved over 5 custom profiles, 5 Modes of LED backlighting (only available in blue) as well as various media keys and 6/NKRO.
