If you’ve been looking to pick up some new gaming gear ahead of the holidays, several noteworthy Razer accessories have dropped to lower-than-usual prices for Black Friday. Not all of these Black Friday gaming deals are winners, but the offers do include a couple of top picks from our guides to the best gaming mice and gaming keyboards. The Razer Basilisk V3, for one, is the chief recommendation in the former, and it’s currently available for $40 at Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. That’s $10 off its typical going rate and matches the lowest price we’ve tracked.
The Basilisk V3 is a wired model, and it’s not the lightest thing around at roughly 100 grams. But if you don’t spend all of your PC gaming time in twitchy multiplayer titles, it’s a superb value at this price. Its sturdy, pleasingly textured shape should be comfortable for most hand sizes and grip types — lefties excluded, sadly — and its sensor had no major issues with tracking accuracy in testing. Its scroll wheel is on the louder side, but it’s also versatile: You can use it to navigate left or right and switch it to a free spin mode that lets you navigate large files faster. The whole thing comes with 11 customizable buttons, including a useful “sensitivity clutch” that lets you momentarily drop or raise the mouse’s DPI in moments where you need to aim more precisely. Speaking from experience, that won’t stop you from getting destroyed in Halo Infinite, but having a little bit of extra flexibility doesn’t hurt.
Elsewhere, the Razer Huntsman V2 TKL keyboard is also worth shouting out at its Black Friday price of $80. That’s the lowest price we’ve tracked for the model with Razer’s Linear Optical switches, which is the runner up pick in our gaming keyboard buying guide. This tenkeyless board doesn’t have the multifunctional analog switches of our top pick, the Wooting 60HE (which isn’t on sale), but it offers a well-crafted design at a much lower price. The linear switches here are fast and noticeably quiet in operation, while the PBT-coated keycaps feel crisp. The keyboard connects over a detachable USB-C cable and comes with a wrist rest in the box as well, though the latter can’t magnetically attach to the keyboard like some competitors. A variant with Razer’s Clicky Optical switches is also on sale for a new low of $45, but we found typing on that model to be distractingly loud in testing.
Among the rest, the Razer Naga Trinity is a decent value at $65 if you want a gaming mouse for MMOs and MOBAs, while the Razer Viper Ultimate is worth a look at $70 if you want a lighter mouse that comes with a charging dock. A handful of Razer’s webcams and bass-heavy gaming headsets are also on sale. If you want to look beyond Razer, we have a more general roundup of Black Friday gaming deals with additional discounts on peripherals we like.
