Tesoro Gram Spectrum Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review

Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation




The Tesoro Gram Spectrum ships to your door inside of this black box with two thin purple accent lines. At the top, we see that this is an RGB mechanical keyboard, just above the glossy image of the Gram Spectrum. There are notations to the "cutting edge" low-profile keys, the polling rate, switch lifespan, amount of onboard storage, amount of color options, what controls it, and its modes of rollover support.





The naming and some of the features can be found on the left end of this panel, but what we found here is more important. We are shown where to go to get drivers and software, we are shown this is a US layout keyboard, it is also known as the TS-G11SFL, and out of the switch options, we see this has blue switches in it.




At this thin end of the box, we can see tiny images of both models of the Gram Spectrum, and of them, the black version is marked. At the right, we see what is required to use the Gram Spectrum, as well as what can be found inside the box.




The larger text of the product name is found near the left end of this side. In a total of 11 languages that follows off to the right of this image, we see a brief description of what the Gram Spectrum is all about.




Along with some iconography and legal mumbo jumbo, moving toward the right shows that this Gram Spectrum is designed by Tesoro, and they are a US company. The notation at the right shows that this is compatible with Windows 8, but we found it also fully ready for Windows 10 as well.




On the back of the box, along the top, we find images of the key features found in, on, and around the Gram Spectrum. There is a large image of the keyboard with the Spectrum Effect enabled, and RGB lighting on full display. To the right, Tesoro mentions the switches again, the keyboards full customization, and even gets into some of the effects that can be used for the eight total modes.




A plastic liner protects the coatings of the Gram Spectrum, and we can see there are also sections of dense foam at either end. The cable comes bound in the back of the box, and lifting the section which says "Break the Rules" we can remove the cable and locate the paperwork.




In case you had forgotten, Tesoro took a page from Cooler Master with this keyboard, and is offering a fully detachable USB cable. The length of the cable is braided in black cloth, the ends are gold plated, and there is even a Ferrite choke near the end that connects to the PC.




The quick start guide for the Gram Spectrum starts off explaining their approach, moves into a itemized list of features with a rendering noting where each of them is. Flipping the page welcomes you to Tesoro World, gives you the name of the product, what comes in the box, and ends with the system requirement. With a four-step process of installation, all that the guide leaves to see contains all of the secondary keys, and what their specific functions are.
