Tesoro Tizona Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review


Tesora Tizona Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Closer Look:


Upon opening the larger of the boxes (which opens like a brief case) the keyboard is dead center with two foam protectors on the sides, a plastic shell cover, and cardboard spacers on the top and bottom. Once everything is removed from the box, I was able to find two cables. One is for the DC-IN to the keyboard and the other is the long braided USB connection cable. Other than these two cables and the keyboard itself, there doesn't appear to be anything else in the box. It was a bit of a surprise that it didn't come with any documentation whatsoever (time will tell if this was a good idea). The keypad was packaged a bit differently. It had an extra flap that flips up revealing the number pad, an image of the whole keyboard, and how to activate the Full-N-Key Rollover for the keypad. The box opens from the side and the contents slide out. Inside is the number pad in a plastic clam shell, a 1.8m USB extension cable, and again, no documentation. On to the main event.




My very first impression of this keyboard is that it feels very sturdy. It has a good weight and appears to have great structural integrity. The color scheme is a very simple purple and black, and looks very clean cut. The same goes for the number pad. Both have a sharp look to them, that is embellished by the royal purple/blue.




The back of the keyboard is very simple. There are no cables back here at all, so there are no cable troughs. This pretty much just leaves the anti-slip rubber grips and the locking feet (also rubberized). The number pad is a bit more complicated, since it does have a connected cable. There are three cable troughs for different organized orientations. Additionally, there are two locking feet that also help with the cable organization and stability when the keyboard is put together.




Taking a good look at the keyboard from either side shows the magnets that hold the number pad, and the USB that connects the number pad to the keyboard. Right, I suppose I should mention that there are two magnets on either side that keep the keyboard and number pad together. I am not sure how strong the connection really is though and I wonder if it will turn into a problem. On the top of the keyboard, there are two plugs for the USB to computer connection and the DC-IN. The number pad has identical magnet configurations on either side of it, so that it and the keyboard can connect on either the left or the right side. For the number pad, the actual connection is via the adjustable USB cable.




Checking out the purple blocks on the keyboard, show the LED indicators that show what mode the keyboard is in and if it's in caps lock or not. Right below the space bar (with Tesoro written across it) are the three thumb hot keys encircled by purple trim. The Function key is between the right side Alt and Ctrl keys, and shares the Tesoro logo with the escape key. On the number pad is the Tesoro name in chrome with purple backing (this is basically the mainstay for the whole aesthetic look of the board and it is quite nice). Between the keyboard and number pad, there are three cables. The USB connector for the main keyboard, the DC-IN (which I still don't fully understand the use of), and the USB extension cable. Overall, it is pretty easy to see that this is a very simple setup. There are not many extra keys and complex features. This is a very pure keyboard (sadly this means that it doesn't have any back lighting or lit keys). Though the keyboard looks pretty nice and seems sturdy, but how good is it in actual practice? With few distinguishing features, the keyboard should at least perform well, right? We will see.
