A little over 2 years ago we took a look at <a href="https://www.thinkcomputers.org/tesoro-excalibur-spectrum-gaming-keyboard-review/" target="_blank">Tesoro's Excalibur Spectrum Gaming Keyboard</a> and we quite satisfied with it as it received a 9 out of 10 score. Today we have another Excalibur Spectrum keyboard from Tesoro, but it is their Excalibur SE Spectrum. 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 optical switches use infrared senors as opposed to metallic contact you would find in mechanical key switches. This design should give you precise actuation and a response time of 0.1 ms. The Excalibur SE Spectrum is the first keyboard Tesoro is outfitting with these new switches. This keyboard also offers per-key RGB backlighting, spill-resistance, and even individual hot-swappable keys. Let's take a look and see if this keyboard can compete with all of the mechanical switch keyboards out there...
