Tesoro Looks To Undercut Competition With $29 RGB-lit Gungnir Black Gaming Mouse

Tesoro is a relatively new brand for the U.S., and the company is certainly making an effort to dent the market. Tesoro appears to be working on making products that take all the trendy design cues, such as RGB lighting, and building them into more affordable products than the market currently has to offer. The Tesoro Gungnir Black is another such example, as this is a budget-oriented RGB-lit gaming mouse.

The mouse comes with seven programmable buttons and has Omron switches underneath the left and right buttons. It has five independent game profiles and comes with 64 KB of on-board memory to store them.

The optical sensor in the device is capable of measuring up to 3500 DPI accurately, and it can poll over its USB interface at up to 1000 Hz for ultra-high responsiveness. It can measure up to 6400 FPS, track at up to 60 inches per second, and survive up to 20 Gs of acceleration.

The 1.8-meter braided USB cable is gold-plated in an effort to ensure that the contacts don't wear out. The mouse itself measures 75.1 x 124.6 x 42 mm at its biggest points, and it weighs in at 100 grams.

The Gungnir Black should be available from retailers any time now and will set you back just $29.

    $8's more for a Redragon Perdition that's infinitely nicer - http://www.amazon.com/Redragon-Perdition-Precision-Programmable-programmable/dp/B00GU8W5AE

    Although good in it's own right - I don't see how this is undercutting the competition. Especially with the Anker Gaming Mouse for just $30 at Amazon, and that has more than twice the DPI.

    I don't know guys, quality of material is also important, if DPI is 10000 and its made from cheap plastic that will dissolve just by using it in 1 year..
    So are those other 2 mice you mention better in this aspect?

    Looks like a decent mouse. Just goes to show mice don't have to cost $70+, I have a feeling a lot of hardware out there is severely overpriced. Took a chance on an a4tech mouse very similar to this tesoro, I'd never heard of it. Ran me like $24 on sale and has far outlasted the $50 gigabyte mouse I had before it. Still going strong after 2yrs of daily use.

    I have been using the Anker mouse heavily for almost 2 years now. The only sign of wear is the spot where I rest my thumb. No button issues or anything of the sort. As stated it has all the features of the mouse in the article and more for the same price and beat this mouse to market by years.

    I appreciate their marketing dept getting the word out about the mouse, but they are extremely far behind the curve on this.

    I recommend buying an overstock or discontinued quality mouse instead of a bargain-bin one.

    years ago i played quake3 religiously and was what many gamer's would accuse of being a "hacker". saying i was good was a understatement. that mouse got lost through computer upgrades and moving. over the years i purchased many gaming mice and never found the kind of feeling and control like i had when i was playing quake3. well i realized that the things like adjustable weights, DPI and Polling rate. don't matter at all, nobody can game at 8000DPI, and we are not fast enough to notice differences in polling rates. and nobody can move a mouse around accurately if it weighs a ton. i had to modify a mouse to finally get what i had been searching for. i sanded the bottom of my mouse flat. bought a large flat Teflon pad and put it across the entire surface so the mouse moves very easily, and removed unnecessary plastic and weight inside to make the mouse as light as possible. i changed out the braided cord for one that was more flexible. and its now as close to perfect as i think i will ever find. i don't game any higher than 1800DPI. a low response time click is something that is also important. almost NONE of these gaming mice manufacturers list how long it takes to tell the p.c. after you have clicked the button before it actually happens. you might be surprised to know many of them take upwards of 25ms to respond. and yet gamer's are acknowledging and being concerned about the 1-2ms response time of monitors.
