Love playing games on your desktop or laptop? Then you absolutely must invest in a good gaming keyboard. But they can be clunky and expensive. The Huntsman Mini from Razer solves the first problem with its diminutive size (there’s no number pad), while this Black Friday deal solves the second problem, dropping the price down to $80 from $130.
The Huntsman Mini was my favorite of the keyboards I tested earlier this year, and Amazon reviewers agree, giving it over 5,000 five-star ratings. This reviewer says it all, calling it “an amazing keyboard” that “freed up a ton of space on my desk” and “the detachable USB-C Cable is a high-quality and welcome touch.” This gamer also loves the “small simplistic design” and “ultra-fast” keys, naming it “a great investment.”

The Corsair K70 is one of the best gaming keyboards you can buy right now, thanks to its excellent key response and typing feel. It’s so good you’ll want to use it for work and school as well.

I could easily see this keyboard lasting me the rest of my life.” Another gamer waxes poetic about the K70, calling it the “Mac-Daddy of keyboards, the king of the hill! … Yea, we all have our preferences but this keyboard is built like a tank, the keys are smooth as butter… this keyboard does it all and then some…”
