Audio Mode
When Audio Mode is activated, the LEDs of each individual key dance to the beats and bass of your favorite tunes.

Switchable N-Key Rollover / USB 6 Key Rollover
Allowing gamers to switch between N-Key Rollover (NKRO) and USB 6 Key Rollover, the Lobera Spectrum is immune to ghosting or jamming issues. A fast 1000Hz polling rate helps makes sure no keystroke is missed, and with instant game mode switching, users don't have to worry about accidental key presses taking them away from the heat of battle.


USB and Audio Jack Pass-Through
The Lobera Spectrum comes with a pass-through hub with audio/mic jacks and 2x USB 2.0 ports with a DC-in jack allowing gamers to charge their smart phones and tablets directly through the keyboard.

Instant Recording / 512kb Built-in Storage
Gamers are able to instantly program macros across the whole keyboard on the Lobera Spectrum. Profiles can be switched in just a couple keystrokes, and all the media keys are accessible with one hand. Built-in storage gives players the freedom to carry their preferences with them, even on different computers, preventing any tedious reprogramming.

Built to Last, Designed for Play
The Lobera Spectrum uses Kailh switches rated for 60 million keystrokes and high quality Costar stabilizers. Rubberized feet with tilt control, preventing slipping even during intense play.

Price and Availability
The Tesoro Lobera Spectrum is available now in North America at Amazon and Newegg for the suggested retail price of $149 USD in Kailh Blue, Black, Brown and Red mechanical switches.

My thoughts

RGB mechanical keyboards are among the most expensive keyboards available, with the Razor Blackwidow Chroma, the Corsair K95 and Corsair K70 costing £144.62, £182.95 and £163.95 respectively. After a quick search on amazon UK I was able to find this keyboard for the much more affordable price of £98.19.

This keyboard offers a great value proposition for those who want to have all the most modern features without an overly expensive pricetag. While this keyboard does not have Cherry MX RGB Key Switches it does still have mechanical RGB keys, courtesy of Kailh, which is a brand has grown in popularity in recent years.

I'll be honest and say that I was very close to purchasing this keyboard as soon as I laid eyes on it, as I have been looking to move to MX Brown keys for ages and I would love to be able to customise the colour of keyboards's backlight. Right now I my finger is hovering over the "buy it now" button, so OC3D's news may be written on one of these keyboards very soon.

Looks interesting will have to wait for review. But the price link is for the older Tesoro Lobera Supreme G5NFL.Quote

Lacks dedicated media keys and any sort of macro buttons, though it might have the functionality of remapping the default keys. At least it has the USB Hub + Audio ports.

The news bit reads a bit like an advertisement.Quote
