Not to be confused with a certain UK based grocery chain, Tesoro have been making peripherals for a while now and have just released a new low profile mechanical keyboard.  As is tradition now, a new keyboard deserves new switches, the GRAM Spectrum features Tesoro Agile Blue or Red switches with an actuation distance of 1.5mm and a 50 million click lifespan.  Benchmark Reviews found these switches comparable to Cherry switches of the same colour and as you can see below they feature clear plastic to allow your RGBs to flow freely from underneath the keycaps.  Drop by for details on the software and their final verdict.

"Over the last few months, we have seen more and more low-profile mechanical keyboards hitting the market. With the Tesoro GRAM Spectrum, it comes with all the goodies normally seen on a mechanical gaming keyboard. But the feature that sets this one apart from the rest are the low-profile mechanical switches."

Tesoro Kuven.pro; mythical helmet or 5.1 surround headset?

Subject: General Tech | October 8, 2014 - 04:29 PM |
Tagged: audio, Tesoro, Kuven.pro, gaming headset

The Tesoro Kuven.pro 5.1 gaming headset uses multiple speakers in the earcups to provide 5.1 sound as opposed to emulating it via software.  While this does have the advantage of bypassing the occasional issues caused with software emulation, placing speakers so close together inevitably causes its own confusion, though not enough to put Legit Reviews off of them.  The controller that comes with the headset allows you to adjust the master volume as well as the volume of each channel separately and mute the microphone but does not function as an equalizer.  Overall Legit Reviews described the sound as flat, a negative listening to music but an advantage when gaming, which is what this headset is for.  The earcups are also rather comfortable, making this a good choice for the gamer who spends long nights gaming and needs to ensure they don't bother the neighbours.

"Today we’re looking at a true 5.1 gaming headset from the likes of Tesoro Technology, an up and coming gaming peripheral company based in Northern California that’s been around since 2011 and not to be confused with the petroleum refining company Tesoro Corporation. The headset is officially called the Kυνέη.pro, in the Greek spelling of the mythological Helm of Darkness owned by Hades, the Greek god of the underworld. However, Tesoro also spells the product name as Kuven.pro."

Tesoro is certainly not as well established a mouse maker as Razer and others but they seem to be aiming for the high end crowd.  Their Shrike Gaming Mouse comes with three 10g weights and a single 5g to allow you to choose the most comfortable weight for your hands.  There are eight buttons including the DPI switcher, which you can actually reprogram if you wish and the plastic exterior resembles brushed aluminium which is rather unique; the LEDs are not so uncommon.  It can store up to 40 programmed macros on its 128KB onboard memory and is configurable up to 5600 dpi at a 1000Hz polling rate.

"Today we are taking a look at another gaming mouse from Tesoro. Up for testing is the Shrike which seems to be a tad sharper than the previous Tesoro we looked at so lets take a closer look."
