  1. What is the availability for this keyboard. After much searching I cannot find a retailer with them or able to get one, also their website does not have the option to buy direct.

    1. What region are you from? Yes, availability is quite the limiting factor for Tesoro’s port folio and shops that carry them are far between. Good point though that they should have a virtual storefront for interested people.

      1. I live in Saskatchewan Canada. I thought since they are an american based company it would not be overly difficult for some for of shipment to Canada.

        1. Speaking from a purely personal perspective, I think its just marketing that they claim they are US-based, seeing as all our concurrence with them have been from Taiwan.

          Newegg and Amazon both stock Tesoro products, as for this specific keyboard (Lobera, Lobera Supreme) I don’t think it’s hit any outlet yet as we’re the only one with a review currently out (as far as I know).

          I’ll relay your concerns to Tesoro in hopes of getting some info.

          1. That would be very much appreciated, they have the keyboard on newegg.com but not newegg.ca I have a friend who is willing to let me ship it there and then mail it to me from the states if I cannot find another option.

            1. Yeah, tried checking earlier and seems to me that only the newegg USA carries them. Must be a territorial thing. As of this moment, Tesoro is also scouting distributors here in the APAC region so that’s one of the limiting factor in their market expansion and it seems that goes for the western part of the globe.

              I’ll work my contact and see if we can get answers.

                1. Already sent your concern to Tesoro. Chinese New Year is still in the air over there but will relay you their reply once it comes through or they’ll respond here directly.

                2. Hi Goforth

                  I’ve forwarded your concern to Tesoro and they’ve responded to me. They have forwarded your concern to Tesoro US. I’ll get back to you once I receive a reply from them.

                3. Hi Goforth,

                  I have forwarded your concern to Tesoro and they’ve forwarded it to their Tesoro US part. I will get back to you once they’ve responded to me again.

  2. Its been a while with not contact so I thought I would check and see if tesoro us had abything to say. I do appreciate all the time you guys put in to help me.

    1. I just found a way to get it. Mailing it to an american buddy who is the bringing it up to canada. Thanks again though

      1. Yeah, they’ve been pretty quiet. Glad to know you’re still pushing through in getting one. We’ve also had questions for their other products’ availability so know that you’re not alone.

  3. Hi Goforth,
    Tesoro Lobera is now available in many shops, and we have opened new shop here: www.tesorogamingusa.com – good luck!
