Tesoro Lobera Spectrum RGB Mechanical Keyboard: Introduction
Today we take a look at the Tesoro Lobera Spectrum RGB Mechanical Keyboard. Like many of the keyboards on the market today, the Lobera Spectrum is orientated towards the gaming community, with dedicated gaming profiles and macro functions for any type of game combination. The Tesoro Lobera Spectrum isn't a run of the mill keyboard. It has a load of functions that make it stand out from the crowd, including full RGB support for every key and a variety of configurations to make people look twice when gaming.
Tesoro itself is a company that solely focuses on the gaming community and has a good number of products. In comes the Lobera Spectrum to shake up the market right when it seems everything is saturated with the same thing over and over. This is a good thing, because with the ever growing market, and companies like Patriot and G.Skill just announcing its gaming peripherals, not to mention companies like Razer, Logitech, Corsair, and ROCCAT all taking a slice of the cake, it can be a bit overwhelming at the amount of choices. Many of these companies make an effort to really define each series and what sets it apart from the rest.
Keyboard prices range from $30, for the basics, all the way to $1500 for OLED custom keys. It's hard to find a middle ground when it comes to price versus performance and while the Lobera Spectrum has a higher price tag than the run of the mill keyboard, it aims to be the sports car in a crowd of mini vans. So without delay, let's check out the what this keyboard has to offer!
Tesoro Lobera Spectrum RGB Mechanical Keyboard: Closer Look
Right off the bat, Tesoro tries to set the tone for this keyboard by showing up the "wow" factor right on the box, and it works! Before I even opened the box and knew anything about Tesoro as a company, I wanted this product. At this point, from a marketing standpoint, this is a pure win. Because whether the product is crap or amazing, it doesn't matter. The customer is already sold on the product. Luckily for me I was not disappointed once I got my hands on it initially, which I'll talk about further in this review. Flipping the box over gives the same "wow" effect and manages to give a bit of information of what this keyboard has to offer along the way. This includes things like mechanical keys, dedicated profiles, software, and RGB backlights, to name a few.
Turning the box on its side reveals more of the same information, but in an assortment of languages, 13 to be exact, which is nice addition. The side once again says the same stuff as the back of the box, making sure any way you look at this box, the information will be seen.
After removing the outer selves and opening the box, the keyboard is neatly packaged away to avoid any damage during shipping. Below the keyboard itself, once removed, are the essentials, which included manual, drivers CD, and a USB power cable (covered later). Not much more to see here, so let's move on.
