Tesoro Excalibur Review

👤by Tony Le Bourne Comments 📅08-01-15
Conclusion

Using the word 'lacking' when considering the price of the Excalibur is a definite misnomer; especially because there is little this beast actually lacks! A solid performing mechanical keyboard that is backlit, available in various switch types and provides simple yet effective software to create powerful macros, is actually quite sweet.



However there are a few things that hold it back from gold, firstly is the basic package, there are things such as a wrist pads, replacement key caps, key cap remover, USB or audio pass through or even a sleek looking braided cable that could have completed this product nicely, helping it stand out that little bit more when compared to its competitors. Another consideration is towards the Kailh switches used instead of the MX Cherry, this could potentially sway some people to look elsewhere. Though from our experience with the Excalibur, the switches were not an issue.

The Tesoro Excalibur is a treat at this price point and gamers should consider this one seriously. Highly recommended!
