WTF are Optical Mechanical Keyboard Switches???

Today we review the Tesoro Excalibur SE Spectrum and it’s actually pretty awesome for the price! The new Tesoro Optical switches deliver satisfying feedback for the tactile audience & are a great alternative over Cherry MX.

The Perfect $89 Mechanical Keyboard?

Logitech takes a stab at the sub-$100 mechanical keyboard market with the launch of the G413 Carbon equiped with super fast Romer-G switches. The red illumination is nice; the aluminum plate is nice; the compact nature of the frame is nice for a full size board, so let’s see if its worth it.
