Tesoro Excalibur SE Spectrum Gaming Keyboard Overview
Getting a first look at this keyboard it is your typical full-size keyboard, so you have a full compliment of keys as well as a full number pad. The keyboard is all black with black keycaps. The keycaps have clear lettering, which the backlighting will shine through. You will also notice white behind the keys, this is actually a steel support frame which protects the PCB under it. Tesoro has done some waterproofing on the actual PCB of this keyboard so it should be able to handle spills.
This keyboard does not have any extra keys, but many of the keys have alternate functions. To activate them all you have to do is hold down the function key while pressing said key. The F1-F4 keys are for your macro’s. F5-F8 are for your repeat speed in (6-key mode). F9 is mute, F10 is volume down, F11 is volume up, and F12 is lock keyboard. There are three different profiles on this keyboard and they can be switched by using the alternate functions on the PS, SL, and PB buttons. INS and DEL allow you to toggle between 6-key, and N-key rollover. The arrow keys will toggle your different lighting effects.
Taking a look at the keyboard from the side we can see that the first three rows of keys angle downwards, the fourth row is pretty much flat and the top two rows angle slightly upwards. This is the typical design we’ve seen on many gaming keyboards. You can also pop-out the feet of the keyboard for an even better feel.
The bottom of the keyboard is pretty plain, but you do have four small rubber feet and of course those pop-out feet as well.
