Tesoro Tizona G2N Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and G2N-P Numpad Review

On the front of the Tizona G2N keyboard box, we find the naming and the sword from Spain that this keyboard is named after. Along with an off angled shot of the keyboard to the right, we see that this is an Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, with the sub-name of "The Burning Blade."




This smaller end shows us how to work the trio of thumb Hotkeys, or H-keys. In PC mode, you can load the browser, open the media player, or open Outlook. If the keyboard is set to Game mode, it offers number pad commands like the forward slash, the asterisk, and the hyphen symbols.




One of the longer sides of the packaging has that same vibrant Tizona naming at the left end of it, with a vast expanse of black cardboard in the middle. As we reach the right end of that side, we find that the Kailh switch color is clearly marked, and an indication that this is offered in the U.S. layout.




The other short side of the box shows us all of the multifunction keys. By using the Function key with others at the same time, you can swap to Game mode, use the multimedia keys, swap between six-key and NKRO, and disable the Windows key. It also mentions that the H-keys change depending on mode.




The last of the side panels again offers naming to the left, which we have already seen, but to the right we find the system requirements, package contents, and a notation that the Tizona is Windows 8 compatible.




Out back, the entire left side is taken with multilingual lists of features found in, and on this keyboard. The right side is used to highlight four key features with images, and finishes off with the naming and imagery of the sword in full view this time.




Inside the box, we find the G2N to be in perfect condition under the plastic dust cover, sandwiched in between cardboard holding the wires at the back, and the dense foam used at both ends that keep it safe in transit.




As we received the product, the Tizona G2N-P Elite Numpad comes contained in this separate packaging, in no way attached to the keyboard.




The front panel lifts up to expose the Numpad that was shown in the image on the front. Inside the cover we see how to use the alternate keys, and we also see it as it would be attached to the keyboard.




On the top, we find the U.S. layout sticker off to the left, and the brown switch is again marked on this box as well.




With the package being so compact in size to begin with, the only other information is found on the back, where this list of features is repeated many times, in various languages.
