Design and elements layout

The unusual design of new products is fully consistent with its ancient exotic name. A beautiful story about the legendary warrior Arjuna bow is embodied in the abundance of stylish chopped faces, metallic shades of body parts and pleasant LED lighting, which gives the device a fighting look.

Thanks to the practical low-profile silhouette, extravagant form of the basic buttons and quite original location of the scroll wheel it is absolutely impossible to confuse the mouse with any other model on the market, making it a truly unique gaming artifact.

Tesoro Gandiva

Despite the rather unusual design and unique shape, the manipulator has comfortable ergonomics, proportionate dimensions (116 x 72 x 44 mm) and optimum weight (135 g). As a result it is perfect for hand, allowing you to playing your favorite games for a long time without fatigue or discomfort.

Base of case Tesoro Gandiva is made of durable high quality black plastic. Due to the pleasant soft-touch cover it provides a comfortable grip as well as gives stiffness and noticeable durability.

The upper part of the mouse is presented in the form of cut plates with LED lights. Like the two main manipulator buttons, they are made of high quality plastic, but unlike the base have an attractive textured surface stylized of rough brushed metal. In addition to the interesting design these overlays resist the appearance of fingerprints and other contaminants, which significantly increases the comfort level of the device use.

The additional decorative elements include small manufacturer's logo and four small rectangular LEDs. During operation all of these elements have a nice uniform glow that emphasizes unusual design of the device.

The two main mouse buttons have a unique asymmetrical shape. Thus, the left button has a slightly elongated profile and raises above right. This solution allows more convenient to place the index finger for accurate and comfortable pressing.

At the same time, the back side of the device contains a small manufacturer's logo (a stylized brand name made of transparent plastic), while the front side has attached USB-cable 1.8 m long. It has enough interesting features and deserves special mention.

The cable is wrapped in a sturdy fabric braid and equipped with a small ferrite ring, reduces the negative electromagnetic effects. Its end has a gold-plated USB-connector, ensuring reliable contact with the external port of stationary device.

Bottom of the mouse is also made of high-quality matte plastic. It has a slightly rough texture and can boast of a good durability. In contrast to most other manipulators today’s model has slightly unusual arrangement of a laser sensor, which is caused by a non-standard form of construction. It is located in the lower left corner of the back of the mouse near the Teflon leg that should be considered when using the device. Legs provide a fast and accurate slide over any surface, including transparent glass and lacquer cover.

Build quality of Tesoro Gandiva is at the highest level and deserves only positive reviews. All the elements of the case fit very tightly (backlash or gaps are excluded) and represent a single monolithic structure. Due to abundance of thick wear-resistant plastic you won’t hear twist no creaks even under intense pressure, and the integrity and reliability of the design does not cause any possible doubt.
