The Black Friday savings have begun. If you're on the lookout for a cheap gaming keyboard deal, it's tough to beat the Corsair K95 Platinum, which you can get today at Best Buy Cheapfor $129.99 ($70 off). This is the lowest price we've ever seen for this awesome keyboard and has been a long-standing champion on our list of the best gaming keyboards you can buy, and with good reason. There's no shortage of options in the space of PC peripherals, but Corsair sets itself apart with outstanding build quality and excellent proprietary software.

As far as gaming keyboards are concerned, they don't get much bigger than the K95 Platinum. This full-size keyboard is supplemented by an extra row of 6 dedicated macro keys that run along the left-hand edge of the keyboard, as well as dedicated media controls and buttons for on-the-fly profile switching and quick brightness adjustment. The K95 Platinum was one of the first major keyboards to take full advantage of the Cherry MX Speed switch, which gave each keystroke a shorter overall travel distance and cut down on the amount of actuation force needed as well.
