Is the Tesoro Durandal G1N (brown sw.) worth buying?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi folks.

I got recently into the whole mechanical keyboard bug and now i want one. I am thinking of buying a Tesoro Durandal G1N with MX Brown switches. Is it worth it? Has any one had any experiences with it?
If any one has other recommendations for something with Brown switches (i found the most pleasant) for under 100 euro with postage.

Thanks.

Check out the CM Storm Trigger if it's around your area.

I am very happy with my Durandal and had an awful experience with the Trigger. I've posted here in this forum. Thats my 2¢. Good luck with your choice. thumb.gif

From what I read, your experience was a faulty board and CM customer support. It's unfortunate, but for those that don't care much for CS, this board is decent.

Thanks for the replies.
The Storm Trigger comes with black switches which i found to be a bit too stiff, and also a too high price tag.
I may go for the Durandal and hope it is pretty good for a first time mech keyboard.

Ended up buying it and I am quite pleased with it. It takes a little to get used to it since i have not used a mechanical keyboard before, but it is all good. I think for a first mechanical it is quite decent. Nothing bad to report about it.
