Tesoro Tizona G2N Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Fresh out of the packaging, we start with a view of the left side of the Tizona G2N. We see the frame uses a low profile design, but on the sides we are looking at two magnets, and an extra USB 2.0 port.

As of right now, all we want to cover is the bright white appearance of the laser etched key caps, and the hints of purple around the keyboard's tenkeyless design.

Moving in much closer, we find the first grouping of the multimedia keys. These four allow control of the mute, lowering the volume, raising it, and the pause/play button below the F1 through F4 naming.

Completing the multimedia functionality, the F5 offers previous track, and next track commands as well.

At the bottom edge of the keyboard. Closest to the user, there is a thin purple trim line to highlight where the H-keys are located. This way, with a simple press of a thumb, you gain access to mail, the internet, and WMP.

In this image, we see the key for activating full NKRO versus six-key rollover, and the "T" in the shield allows you to swap between PC and Game mode. In the Purple insert, above the arrow keys, we find the locks have LEDs to signify their activation.

Extending the feet brings the key caps to a proper angle of attack, and we also see that this side of the frame is a mirror image of the other side. There are two magnets, as well as another USB 2.0 port.

Rounding from the right side to the back, we immediately find where the USB 2.0 cable attaches, as well as the power adapter cable next to it. While the printing appears upside down, when you flip the board on its edge to connect it, the writing will be right side up.

Under the keyboard, there are some structural indents in the base of the frame. These indents go around the sticker in the middle, and strengthen the areas between the large rubber pads at the front, and extendable feet at the back.

The feet do flip out to the back of the keyboard, but lock solidly into the sides of the hinge pins. The foot is also much wider than most, and is covered on the end with a rubber pad to give it added traction.

We did not see any form of paperwork in our box, but hey, that can easily happen. What we did find is a Mini-USB to USB 2.0 braided cable for the keyboard communication. In order to sufficiently power both USB ports, Tesoro also includes a USB to DC power adapter.
