These are all the Black Friday gaming keyboard deals still live going into the weekend, but we're now switching focus to what's coming up with the Cyber Monday gaming keyboard deals (opens in new tab). That's where all the latest and greatest discounts will now be curated going forward, so come take a look.

If you've been holding off on upgrading your peripherals, now's the time to push the button on that gaming mouse or mechanical keyboard you've been eyeing all year. There are deals to be had from all major manufacturers, including SteelSeries, Razer and Logitech, with all manner of models of on sale, whether you're looking for a keyboard with the latest optical switches, a wireless mouse with absurdly high DPI, or any other input device.

Remember: your M+K are the most important peripherals when it comes to PC gaming. You use them constantly. And at these price points, a new gaming mouse or keyboard will also make an excellent gift for the PC gamer in your life. 

Generally speaking, Black Friday weekend sees the deepest discounts you'll find on mice and keyboards all year. We're found zippy gaming mice and beautiful keyboards with Cherry switches at up to half price. Personally, I'm a sucker for a mouse with a ton of programmable buttons for playing MOBAs, so that's what I'll be picking up. But whatever you're after, chances are we've already found a great saving in our constantly updated list of deals.

Believe me, you're missing out if you haven't experienced the satisfying joy of typing on a mechanical keyboard. Aside from type-feel, mechanical keyboards are known for their reliability and ability to take some serious punishment. With all the bells and whistles, these keyboards can prove expensive, costing up to $250 for high-end options. If you're not a gamer, there's still value in scoring a deal on an ergonomic keyboard and mouse so you can preserve your precious wrists. Thankfully, we've tested and played with dozens of the most popular keyboards and mouse combos throughout the year, so we know a good deal when we see one.

Razer Cynosa Chroma | Membrane | Per-key RGB lighting | $59.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Cynosa Chroma | Membrane | Per-key RGB lighting | $59.99 $29.99 at Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)
We're pretty resolute on mechanical keyboards being the best here at PC Gamer, but no matter what, every year we run into someone that swears by a membrane. They're generally cheaper, you can definitely say that about them, and usually they have some features you won't find on any decent quality mechanical at this price. This Razer Cynosa is a board we've run into time and time again on team: a solid performer at a price that keeps going lower, and worth consideration if you split your time equally between gaming and typing.

Havit RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (opens in new tab)

Havit mechanical keyboard | Red silent | $49.99 $30.39 at Amazon (Save $19.60) (opens in new tab)
A 60% keyboard with boatloads of style, and lovely PBT keycaps (opens in new tab). We haven't tested the red key switches it's touting, but they're rated at 50 million keypresses. And silent ones too, so ideal if you're better half can't stand the clicking and the clacking all night long. 

Logitech G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard | Lightsync RGB Backlit Keys | (opens in new tab)

Logitech G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard | Lightsync RGB Backlit Keys | $69.99 $39.99 on Amazon (save $30) (opens in new tab)

With a spill-resistant design, the Logitech G213 manages to be both cheap and durable. It's got multimedia keys, a wrist rest and of course the swanky RGB lighting that the young people love. If you want something that will do the basics and do them well, the Prodigy is a great choice at a very low price. 

Logitech G413 TKL SE | Tenkeyless | Mechanical cross stem switch (tactile) | White LED lighting | $69.99 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G413 TKL SE | Tenkeyless | Mechanical cross stem switch (tactile) | White LED lighting | $69.99 $49.99 at Amazon (save $20) (opens in new tab)
If you want a cheap mechanical keyboard, you're likely looking at a board with a smaller footprint than your standard key layout, such as this tenkeyless design. If you're gaming, it's a solid performer that also saves space. However, it might not suffice for busy office life if you use the numpad a lot. (Hello, accountant readers.) The G413 also forgoes RGB lighting or any fancy features, but isn't bad if you want a mechanical on a membrane budget.

Razer BlackWidow Lite | Silent and Compact Keyboard with mechanical switches | White LED backlighting | $89.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer BlackWidow Lite | Silent and Compact Keyboard with mechanical switches | White LED backlighting | $89.99 $49.99 at Razer (opens in new tab)

Razer doesn't just make keyboards that light up all the colors of the rainbow: it has a discreet side too. The BlackWidow Lite is a compact version of its classic keyboard model, with a more restrained design than usual and silent mechanical keys. A perfect combination for work and pleasure, and the 44% off is a genuinely chunky discount.

$99.99 (opens in new tab)

HyperX Alloy Origins | 65% | Red mechanical switch (linear) | RGB lighting | $99.99 $69.99 at Best Buy (save $30) (opens in new tab)
Who doesn't love a 65 percenter? This HyperX Alloy Origins is not only one of the better 65% keyboards out there, but its RGB backlit keys make it of the best-looking ones as well. When I used it, what sold me on the Alloy were durable double-shot PBT keys that felt great to type on. It's a solid gaming keyboard that won't take up a ton of space on your desk. 

Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition | Linear Optical switch | Tenkeyless | $129.99 $77.99 at Razer (save $52) (opens in new tab)
We like the Razer Huntsman plenty, but what about its little sibling, the Tournament Edition? Well, clearly we like that, too. In fact, tenkeyless keyboards are some of our favourites for gaming, and this one offers all you need with  the added bonus of in-your-face green keycaps to boot. 

Mountain Everest 60 (opens in new tab)

Mountain Everest 60 | 60% keyboard | RGB | Optional numpad | $139.99 $79.99 at Mountain (save $60) (opens in new tab)
(opens in new tab)This little keyboard packs a real punch despite only being 60%-sized. Like it's namesake the Everest is robust, unlike it's namesake there's an optional modular numpad and you can pick from a wide range of keycap colours to suit your vibe.

Roccat Vulcan TKL | Tenkeyless | Titan mechanical switch (tactile) | Per-key RGB lighting | $129.99 (opens in new tab)

Roccat Vulcan TKL | Tenkeyless | Titan mechanical switch (tactile) | Per-key RGB lighting | $129.99 $89.47 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
This Roccat keyboard is a unique proposition. I've never used anything else like it: The keycaps are completely exposed, making for a love or hate it design. Though fundamentally it's a fully mechanical keyboard with Roccat's own Titan switches, which I found reasonably good for gaming and typing on. The only thing is that this price isn't entirely new for Black Friday, as we've seen it a few times lately, but it's a good price for what you're getting regardless.

Razer Huntsman Elite | Full-size | Razer opto-mechanical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $199.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman Elite | Full-size | Razer opto-mechanical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $199.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
This mechanical keyboard sports Razer's opto-mechanical switches, dedicated media keys, and supports customisable RGB Chroma technology. It's very flashy, literally, but there's more going on than looks alone. Those speedy switches are great for competitive gaming.

Keychron K4 Wireless | Compact full-size | Gateron Brown switch (tactile) | $104.99 (opens in new tab)

Keychron K4 Wireless | Compact full-size | Gateron Brown switch (tactile) | $104.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $5) (opens in new tab)
Not a massive saving on this keyboard, but seeing as we were so impressed with the Keychron we reviewed, the K2 Version 2, we thought even a $15 discount would be worth highlighting on this model. This is a wireless keyboard with both 2.4G wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, and you can plug it in via USB Type-C, so it's good for pretty much any situation.

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog | Opto-mechanical | $199.99 $124.98 at Amazon (Save $48.01) (opens in new tab)
Okay, so it's a refurbished keyboard, but this is very cheap for a supreme gaming keyboard. Optical switches make it faster than your average mechanical board, and you get a wrist rest as well. Not too shabby.

Drop CTRL mechanical keyboard | Hot Swappable switches | Tenkeyless | Per-key RGB | $200 (opens in new tab)

Drop CTRL mechanical keyboard | Hot Swappable switches | Tenkeyless | Per-key RGB | $200 $139 at Drop (save $61) (opens in new tab)
The Drop CTRL is a weighty, premium-feeling keyboard with one major selling point: you can pull out every switch and replace them with whatever you choose. Start with Drop's Halo switches, then try out a set of MX Cherry Browns or Holy Pandas (opens in new tab). A great way to ease your way into the wider world of mech keyboards.

| Tenkeyless | Holy Panda X | Wired | $199 (opens in new tab)

Drop + Lord of the Rings | Tenkeyless | Holy Panda X | Wired | $199 $139 at Drop (save $60) (opens in new tab)
One thing I've been pining over since the day it released is this Drop + LOTR keyboard. This is the Dwarven version and comes with the renowned Holy Panda X switch. Now it's got a good chunk of money off it's time to make one purchase to rule them all.

$229.99 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G915 Lightspeed SE | Tenkeyless | Wireless | Mechanical GL Tactile Switch | $229.99 $159.99 at Best Buy (save $70)
(opens in new tab)This Logitech is one of the best keyboards on the market today. However, it becomes tough to recommend at its steep regular price. But with a $70 saving, it's much easier to recommend. At home, I use the white model, and can't imagine changing to anything else.

Logitech G915 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G915 wireless mechanical gaming keyboard | Linear | Black | $249.99 $180.75 at Amazon (save $70) (opens in new tab)
Our usual problem with this keyboard is its price, so this deal is a welcome one. The linear variety of this keyboard is the cheapest at the moment though the tactile and clicky versions are also discounted on Amazon. No matter which you pick, you'll feel the benefit for the extra cash for years to come as you WASD around with greater comfort and control.

Corsair K100 RGB | Full-size | Optical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $249.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair K100 RGB | Full-size | Optical switch (linear) | Per-key RGB lighting | $249.99 $169.99 at Newegg (save $80 with promo code CMPFXSTPM) (opens in new tab)
The K100 was, for a long time, our number one pick for the best gaming keyboard. Admittedly it's slipped down the ranks a little now, mostly because some cheaper boards offer similar stuff, but this discount puts the K100 back on a competitive footing for a gaming keyboard that offers everything. It's fast, programmable, and it looks and feels great.

Logitech G502 Hero | 25,000 DPI | Wired | Right-handed | $49.99 $34.99 at Target (save $15) (opens in new tab)
It's not the biggest saving, but it does mean that this Logitech classic of a gaming mouse is now available for less than $40, which feels like a bargain. The angular shape might put you off initially, but it's actually super comfortable in the hand, and the Logitech Hero sensor is one of the best around.

Logitech G502 Hero SE | Wired | 25,600 DPI | 11 buttons | RGB lighting | $79.99 (opens in new tab)

Logitech G502 Hero SE | Wired | 25,600 DPI | 11 buttons | RGB lighting | $79.99 $39.71 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
The gaming mouse loved by many is still as great as ever in 2022. Considering this mouse has long stood as the de facto example of what's required for accurate control in-game, it's always surprising to see how far its price has crumbled over the years. If you don't know what to buy the PC gamer in your life, but you know they could upgrade to a proper gaming mouse, this is a fantastic option that far surpasses most budget wired mice.

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed (opens in new tab)

Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed | Wireless | 16,000 DPI | Right-handed | $59.99 $39.99 at Best Buy (Save $20) (opens in new tab)
Wireless shouldn't mean expensive, and in the case of the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed wireless mouse, it doesn't. Especially with this deal over at Best Buy. You can also rest assured this is a high quality mouse from a reputable brand with a great ergonomic shape.

Corsair Sabre RGB Pro | Wireless | 26,000 DPI | 7 buttons | $109.99 (opens in new tab)

Corsair Sabre RGB Pro | Wireless | 26,000 DPI | 7 buttons | $109.99 $39.99 at Best Buy (save $70) (opens in new tab)
This wireless gaming mouse from Corsair is deceptively fast. Though, you probably couldn't tell just by looking at it. Either way, it's a solid gaming mouse with around 90 hours of battery life, and it's at a really good price at $40.

Logitech G305 Lightspeed | 12,000 DPI | Wireless | 250h Battery Life | 6 Programmable Buttons $49.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Naga X | Wired | 18,000 DPI | 16 buttons | $79.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Naga X | Wired | 18,000 DPI | 16 buttons | $79.99 $39.99 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
Razer's Naga X mouse is a simplified version of the Naga Pro, built for MMO players in need of tons of shortcuts. It doesn't come with the interchangeable side panels like the Pro, but if you're single-minded in your approach to macros and want just tons of options at your fingertips (or thumb tip, really), this is a very affordable option.

Glorious Model O | 12,000 DPI | 6 buttons | RGB lighting | $49.99 (opens in new tab)

Glorious Model O | 12,000 DPI | 6 buttons | RGB lighting | $49.99 $43.50 at Amazon (save $6.49) (opens in new tab)
A small saving, but a decent one on a mouse that doesn't often dip much below its usual $50 price tag. When you click the link Amazon will say you're saving more on this mouse, but Glorious sell it for $50 on their own website so you can't really call it a 47% discount. Still, it's some money off a very impressive, and notably light (at 67g) gaming mouse with a speedy sensor.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro (opens in new tab)

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro | 20,000 DPI | Wireless | $129.99 $57.99 at Amazon (save $72) (opens in new tab)
This is my boy, my absolute favorite gaming mouse, and the one sat in my right hand right now. It's frustratingly expensive normally, but at this price you are getting an accurate, responsive mouse with that iconic DeathAdder styling. A true weapon of a gaming rodent.

SteelSeries Aerox 3 2022 Edition | Wireless | 18,000 DPI | 6 buttons | $99.99 $59.99 at Best Buy (save $40) (opens in new tab)
The Aerox 3 is the first gaming mouse to receive an IP54 rating. What does that mean for you? Well, it'll withstand dust, dirt, water, and whatever gamer gunk it comes up against. It also has a whopping 200-hour battery life, so you'll have long stretches of grinding before even thinking about recharging.

$119.99 (opens in new tab)

Glorious Model O Minus | Wireless | 19,000 DPI | 6 buttons | RGB lighting | $119.99 $69.60 at Amazon (save $50) (opens in new tab)
With USB Type-C support and a great sensor, this is a superb mouse for high refresh rate gaming on a speedy screen. A great alternative to the Logitech G Superlight that we love, but which can prove a bit pricey.

SteelSeries Prime Mini (opens in new tab)

SteelSeries Prime | 18,000 DPI | 80g | $129.99 $69.99 at Amazon (Save $60) (opens in new tab)
For the competitive prowess it exhibits, this wireless rodent is certainly worth investigating. The TrueMove Pro sensor is great, and it's nice and light for FPS players looking to fling it around the mouse pad. 

Razer Viper Ultimate| Wireless | 20,000 DPI |8 buttons | RGB lighting | 74g | (opens in new tab)

Razer Viper Ultimate| Wireless | 20,000 DPI |8 buttons | RGB lighting | 74g | $149.99 $74.99 at Amazon (save $75) (opens in new tab)

Razer Basilisk Ultimate (opens in new tab)

Razer Basilisk Ultimate | Wireless | Charging dock included | 20,000 DPI | $169.99 $79.99 at Best Buy (save $90) (opens in new tab)
If you want to go all out on your gaming mouse, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is the way. It's a fan favourite, and we're big admirers too, although clearly it's a lot pricier than your average gaming mouse, even a wireless one. With the included charging dock, though, you can take the hassle out of charging your battery.

This is the tactile, tenkeyless version of a fantastic, low profile keyboard we've had on our best gaming keyboards list for a while now.

One of our favourite gaming mice ever to grace the earth is currently going for pittance and I'm very tempted to get it myself. It's got Logitech's most up-to-date 25K sensor, and is perfect for those who can't decide what weight they want their mouse to be, as you can simply add or remove weight as you like. It's got a ton of programmable buttons and right now the special edition is cheaper than the standard. Nice.

When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday 2022 is on November 25 this year and will effectively last through until Cyber Monday on November 28. 

Though, in reality, Black Friday is now a month-long event running pretty much throughout the entirety of November. Indeed, since Amazon kicked things off with its Prime Early Access event in October, the deals have been rolling along since then.

What should I look out for in a Black Friday gaming keyboard or mouse?

For starters, most of the top gaming keyboards use mechanical switches, and so too do the top gaming mice, for that matter. These differ from the usual membrane construction you'll find on cheaper keyboards, and that means greater responsiveness, reliability, and generally a nicer feel. Beyond that, gaming keyboards offer plenty of nice-to-have features, such as RGB lighting, media control keys, macro keys, USB passthrough, wireless connectivity, and much more.

When it comes to gaming mice, you're looking more at the sensor that tracks your movements on your mouse pad. A good sensor will offer zero acceleration, track you accurately, and be able to withstand you throwing the mice hither and thither. Combined with a comfortable shape, you're looking at a winner. 

Throw in a cheaper price on top of all of those great features, and you have a keyboard or rodent set to last many years.
