Cyber Monday gaming mouse and keyboard deals (UK):


Best gaming mouse deals:


Your reader-voted favourite gaming mouse of all time, the Logitech G502 Hero is a stonking gaming mouse at just £35. Not only does it have a super fast sensor, but it has loads of customisable buttons and adjustable weights to help you get the most comfortable fit. It’s a great mouse, and a proper bargain at its current price.

Alternatively, if you’re after a proper bargain-tastic budget gaming mouse, look no further than the Logitech G203 Lightsync. Our current budget recommendation in our best gaming mouse rankings, this simple mouse is impeccably made for its price, and still has a smattering of RGB lighting for added flare. At just £20, it’s a great buy.

An oldie, but a goodie, Logitech’s wireless G903 Lightspeed is another excellent gaming mouse. It’s ambidextrous, for starters, making it a great pick for left-handed gamers, and its 140 hour battery life (or 180 hours if you turn off its RGB lighting) will keep you going for absolutely ages.

Holy smokes, we called the Logitech G Pro Wireless “the best wireless gaming mouse ever made” when we reviewed it, with the killer combination of Lightspeed Wireless tech, the Hero 16K sensor, and a shocking 80g weight. It’s ridiculously fast and agile, and look, mum, no wires! Seven thumbs up for this one, and it hasn’t been this cheap since May.

The latest version of Razer’s classic gaming mouse, the Deathadder V2 is another top-notch Black Friday bargain if the look of the G502 isn’t quite to your liking.

Our top recommendation for left-handed gamers, the Razer Viper is another brilliant ambidextrous gaming mouse. It’s wired, unlike the wireless Logitech G903 above, but much cheaper as a result. Again, Amazon have the best price, but Ebuyer also have it for a decent £45.

The brilliant do-it-all gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Trinity has effectively three gaming mice in one thanks to its detachable side panels. It’s a great mouse, and at £50, the cheapest it’s ever been.

Another ambidextrous favourite, the Asus ROG Pugio is our next best recommendation after the Razer Viper for left-handed gamers. It’s more expensive than the Viper right now, but it’s still a great value mouse that’s well worth considering.

The Sensei Ten is a another good choice for left handed players. An updated version of the SteelSeries classic Sensie, this has some new features over the original, like tilt tracking and onboard profiles. It’s good value for money at this price, and it’s the first time the Sensei Ten has been as low as £40 since July.

The SteelSeries Rival 600 is another slightly pricier mouse, but this is a nice discount off the regular top-end price, and it has an attractive USP. Aside from performing well as a day-to-day mouse, the Rival 600 comes with eight 4g weights that you can slot into the sides of the mouse, letting you configure the weight and balance exactly how you like. One for the customisers out there.

The SteelSeries Rival 310 is a nippy little mouse that we said “strikes the perfect balance between form and function” in our review. It’s got comfy silicone side grips that make a nice cushion for your beleaguered fingers and thumbs, a tasteful implementation of RGB, and is our best budget mouse! At £35 in SteelSeries’ own sale (sign up to the site for free to see the sale prices), the Rival 310 hasn’t been this cheap since the start of the year.

Left-handed pals need not be disappointed where the 310 is concerned. The excellent SteelSeries Sensei 310 is essentially an ambidextrous version of the Rival 310. It’s almost identical to the Rival 310, except it has a couple of extra programmable buttons. It, too, is just £35 direct from SteelSeries.

If you’re in the market for something a bit flashier, the Rival 710 is a premium mouse that gives you some high-tech bang for your buck. It has a built-in OLED screen that shows notifications, and a tactile alert system that you can customise to, for example, make the mouse give a little vibrate when your health is low. Fancy! This is another mouse that is pricy, but doesn’t get discounted very often, so a third off isn’t to be sneezed at.

Another all-time low price, the Ornata Chroma’s mecha membrane switches combines the clicky, mechanical feel of a high-end gaming keyboard with a quieter keystrokes of a membrane model. They’re a great half-way house if you’re not sure about going full CLACK with a proper mechanical keyboard, and this one also gets you a comfy wrist rest, too.

This is the 2019 version of Razer’s classic gaming keyboard. A popular choice among many PC gamers, this model comes with Razer’s green “clicky” switches. It’s been slightly cheaper in the past – its all-time low being £72 – but considering this would have cost you closer to £90 for most of this year, this year’s Black Friday price is still a good deal overall.

The slightly fancier version of the BlackWidow, the Elite has a multi-function digital dial and three media keys that you can programme to adjust brightness, volume or many other what have yous. They’re a particularly good edition if you do a lot of media editing. Curry’s have knocked another fiver off the previous price of £105 for the version with clicky Green switches.

The Apex Pro is SteelSeries’ top of the line mechanical keyboard, and it’s got a decent £40 discount in SteelSeries’ own sale today (sign up to their website for free to see the sale price). This is a fancy keyboard, with adjustable switches that can customise sensibility for individual keys, and a built-in OLED display on the keyboard itself. Amazon UK have it too, if you prefer, but currently at a less tasty £180

Everything you like about the Apex Pro, but in a more compact package if you’re short on desk space. The discount isn’t smaller though – still £40 off if you sign up for free to SteelSeries’ website.

Another of SteelSeries’ more premium keyboards, the Apex 7 comes with three switch opens for its mechanical keys, with Red being the most quiet and smooth, and therefore the most expensive. £140 is a decent price for this keyboard, which has an OLED display and magnetic wrist wrest like the Pro series, and although Amazon had its lowest low price of £95 in September, the Apex 7 hasn’t had many discounts at all over the last year. It’s also on sale on Amazon UK, mind, for £150.

The TKL is, as with the Pro, the more compact version of the regular Apex 7, though it still has the mod cons of the larger keyboard. The discount here is slightly smaller too, though, at £30 saved rather than £40. Unlike the Regular Apex 7, however, the TKL isn’t on sale elsewhere (for now).

HyperX keyboards like the HyperX Alloy Core are favourites here at RPS. The Origins is a small step above the Core, and at £70 from Currys PC World it’s a nice way to get the flash of an RGB keyboard for relatively cheap.

Our top gaming mouse recommendation in our best gaming mouse rankings, the Roccat Kain 120 is a superb gaming mouse – especially at its new all-time low price of just $29. If I didn’t already have one, I’d snap this right up.

Another deep cut for the RPS Readers’ favourite mouse of all time, this price matches its previous all-time low over Prime Day, making it another great time to pick one (or six) up on the cheap.

Another brilliant budget gaming mouse, the HyperX Pulsefire Core was my top budget gaming mouse recommendation until the Logitech G203 Lightsync came along. It’s still a great entry-level gaming mouse, though, and a proper bargain at just $25.

The Razer Mamba is a sleek, good performance wireless mouse. This one may not be packaged with the Firefly Hyperflux auto-charging mouse mat, but it means you’re getting a decent wireless mouse at a decent price.

The Roccat Vulcan is one of the best gaming keyboards you can buy right now, and it currently sits at the top of our recommendation list. It’s rarely on sale, too, making this year’s Black Friday discount of $50 off a great time to pick one up.

We’re big fans of HyperX’s Alloy Core keyboard here at RPS, especially if you want dedicated media keys. Its membrane keys aren’t quite as mechanical-feeling as the Cynosa Chroma above, it’s still a great budget buy if you want a cheap RGB gaming keyboard.

The wired version of our favourite wireless gaming keyboard, the Logitech G915 Lightspeed, the G815 is one of the best gaming keyboards we’ve ever used. It’s the keyboard I’ve got on my desk at home, and its low-profile keys are wonderful to use, as is its lovely volume roller. At $50 off, this is a great price.

Alternatively, the tenkeyless version of Logitech’s G915 Lightspeed Wireless is also on sale at the moment, receiving another $50 discount on the Tactile switch edition of this excellent compact keyboard.


How to get the best Cyber Monday mouse and keyboard deals

Gaming keyboards: When you’re buying a new keyboard, there are a number of things to consider. First, you need to decide whether you want a mechanical one or a membrane one. Most of the keyboards listed above are all mechanical, and generally, a lot of people who play PC games prefer mechanical keyboards due to their sharp, clean movements and short, fast actuation points (when the keyboard actually registers you’ve pressed down a key).

Membrane keyboards are usually a lot cheaper than their mechanical counterparts because they’re made from less expensive materials, but this in turn makes them more prone to breaking and are generally a bit of a pain to fix. Given their low price, the solution nine times out of ten is just to buy a new one.

Mechanical keyboards, on the other hand, are generally a lot more expensive, but they’re also more durable and – in theory – easier to repair as you often only need to replace the faulty switch rather than chuck the entire thing in the bin. They can be a heck of a lot noisier than membrane keyboards, though, and the loud CLACKEDY CLACK sound they make means they’re a bit anti-social for shared living spaces. Instead, they’re generally best suited to bedrooms and places where you’re the only person within earshot. Membrane keys, meanwhile, are comprised of several small domes on a single layer of plastic – a bit like bubble wrap. Naturally, this deadens any excess sound they might make, and tend to be much easier on the ears.

Gaming mice: As for mice, there are lots of things that make a great mouse. For me, comfort is high on the list, but flexibility is another key consideration, such as whether that’s a wide sensitivity or DPI (dots per inch) range, or multiple, configurable buttons.

That said, sometimes less is more. Just because a mouse has a DPI range up in the 10,000s doesn’t mean it’s necessarily better than one with a maximum of 7200. Generally, anything above 3000 DPI is so blisteringly quick you’d need bionic eyes to keep track of it anyway. The same goes for buttons. Instead, it’s all about how you can make the most of what the mouse has to offer. For more information, have a read of my gaming mouse reviews to see exactly what you can do with each mouse.
