£30 off the Roccat Pyro mechanical keyboard makes it a Black Friday bargain

The best cheap mechanical gaming keyboard gets cheaper

I recently spent a couple of weeks with the Roccat Pyro as my main work and gaming keyboard, and it was a lovely bit of kit for the price; full-size mechanical keyboards rarely cost under £100, yet here was one that started at £90 and had everything a typical PC gamerist could ask for. Now, what with it being Black Friday and all, it’s hit a new lowest price of £60 – a 33% saving.

For such anti-riches I can’t recommend any other tenkey-equipped, fully mechanical keyboard more; indeed, it held the ‘best cheap mechanical gaming keyboard’ title on our best keyboards list well before this discount revealed itself. The only thing missing here is USB pass-through, but N-key rollover, a volume dial, a detachable wrist rest, macro recording and RGB backlighting are all part of the deal.

Sadly I haven’t found such a drastic saving for US buyers, though Amazon has sliced off a few dollars to bring it down to $75.

If the Pyro isn’t to your tastes, there are many more gaming keyboard savings to be found in our guides to the best Black Friday mouse and keyboard deals, the best Black Friday Logitech deals and the best Black Friday Razer deals. Cheap membrane models, compact tenkeyless and 65% boards, the lot.
