Tesoro Gram Spectrum Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review

To be blunt, we feel that in our quest to complete the single player mode of DOOM, the Tesoro Gram Spectrum has aided us to pass boards we could not do before its usage. Finding less searching going on, and the fact that it is hard to press multiple keys with the thinner key caps, only the movements we were trying to put out is what we got.


We liked the report from these Kailh blue switches, and we can feel the speediness of our actions due to what is shown to be a shorter throw to actuation. Even being as thin as the Gram Spectrum is, even when pressing buttons like a mad man, we felt no vibrations or anything to give off a cheap-ish feel to its usage.






Overwatch gave us the chance to go ahead and play around with the profiles and remapping, as the stock position of some of the most important game commands were odd for us to use. Once we had everything easily within reach, we do have to say that this game has become more enjoyable to play, without have to extend ourselves to find the default layout actions.


Again, with fast-paced, close quarter action of this game, the Gram Spectrum responds fully and gives you a sense of easier gaming and less stress to your hands after many hours of gaming.



Windows and Productivity


As far as editing is concerned, we did shift over, importing some of our go-to Macros to simplify our day. All of them worked as intended, and we even toyed around with adding a few more with this keyboard, mostly due to the way the Macro Editor worked. It is simple and easy to sort out, and the customizations are as good as it gets.


On the flip side, we have to look at this from a typist's perspective, as we just cannot game all day and still get our opinions out. We spend a lot of time with each keyboard, and much like when we used the MX Speed Switches before this, the combination of lowered keycaps and the shorter activation of the switches, has paid off in time over the long haul.


We can feel we are typing faster, and by our average WPM, on the first day, we were up ten words per minute, and things got better as we spent more time with the Gram Spectrum. We also noticed that with our fat fingers, we were not hitting multiple keys with this design, and that too saves time from not having to go back and edit mistakes.
