We’ve found three discounted gaming keyboards from Corsair that most people will love, in different form factors and with different features. The first is Corsair’s first 60 percent keyboard, the K65. This compact keyboard normally costs $109.99, but has recently dropped to $89.99 at Best Buy and Amazon. We last saw the K65 drop to this price during Black Friday. While this keyboard’s small layout is certainly not for everyone, it should appeal to those who strive for a minimalist aesthetic on their desk.
Like other 60 percent keyboards, the K65 eliminates the function row, directional arrows, and navigation keys that let you move up and down the page with ease. This keyboard uses Cherry MX Silver switches and uses a detachable USB-C connector. The PBT keycaps even use a standard layout so you can swap out custom keycap sets if you want.
The most conventional keyboard we include today is the Corsair K70 RGB 2 Rapidfire. This model typically retails for $169.99, but Best Buy and Amazon have discounted this full-size keyboard to $109.99. While this isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen for this particular model, it’s a good value for anyone on the market for a keyboard that doesn’t skimp on features.
The K70 RGB 2 Rapidfire features dedicated media playback controls, USB pass-through and is equipped with Cherry MX Silver switches. While the keycaps are ABS plastic, which isn’t as durable as PBT caps, the K70’s standard layout means you can easily swap them out with some custom PBT keycaps.
The latest Corsair model to be discounted is something odd. The K60 RGB Low Profile is currently discounted to $79.99 at Amazon, a solid discount off the typical $109.99 price tag. This gaming keyboard has a full-sized footprint with a numeric keypad and function row, but it uses a shorter version of the Cherry MX Speed switch combined with slimmer keys. The end result is a keyboard with unobtrusive keys, offering a slightly more comfortable typing experience for some. While the slimmer chassis still supports USB pass-through, the keycaps are again ABS plastic, not PBT, and will likely slowly accumulate visible grease and fingerprints.
One of Razer’s most versatile mice, the Basilisk Ultimate is currently available for $113.99 at Amazon and $119.99 at Best Buy. This wireless mouse has eight programmable buttons, a 25K DPI sensor and lasts up to 100 hours on a single charge. The Basilisk Ultimate is also equipped with a detachable DPI switch that allows you to quickly switch between DPI settings and adjustable tension for the scroll wheel. Some call it a sniper button because it makes it easier to shoot at a lower DPI. The mouse is certainly a bit on the heavy side, weighing in at 103 grams, but if larger mice don’t bother you, the Basilisk Ultimate is an excellent choice.
Westinghouse may not be the first name you associate with gaming monitors, but this 32-inch panel offers great value for money. Typically $299.99, Newegg has discounted this monitor to just $229.99. With a 1440p resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate, this model shares features with other gaming monitors that are almost double the price. The Westinghouse Gaming Monitor also features AMD FreeSync to reduce screen tearing with AMD graphics cards, and as far as ports go, you get a pair of HDMI connections, a single Display Port input and a 3.5mm audio jack. . The monitor is compatible with VESA mounts and the included stand is both height and tiltable.
If you’re looking for a decent webcam, or just a webcam equipped with its own dedicated lighting, the Razer Kiyo is currently discounted to $60.99, the lowest price ever on Amazon. The specs are pretty standard for a standalone webcam under $100, which can capture 30 fps at 1080p or 60 fps at 720p. However, the standout feature of this webcam is the built-in ring light, which can be very useful in low-light situations or anywhere with uneven lighting. Like virtually all of Razer’s peripherals, the Kiyo is compatible with its Synapse software, which also lets you fine-tune things like depth of field and lighting temperature.
