- Corsair K65 Mini Gaming Keyboard: now $69 at Best Buy (was $109)
A great gaming keyboard doesn’t need to be huge; in fact, some of the best gaming keyboards are tiny. Ultra-compact gaming keyboards can be pretty powerful — they have to be, to make a limited 60 or 65 percent layout viable for gaming — and they’re often pricier than they look.
But several are on sale this week, including the Corsair K65 RGB Mini Gaming Keyboard for just $69 (was $109) at both Best Buy and Amazon. Best Buy has the K65 in both black and white with Cherry MX Speed linear mechanical switches, while Amazon only has it in black (but with either Cherry MX Speed or Cherry MX Red switches).
The Corsair K65 RGB Mini is a wired (detachable, USB-C) 60 percent keyboard with a tiny footprint — 11.6 inches (294mm) long by 4.14 inches (105mm) deep, and 1.74 inches (44mm) thick. It weighs 1.3 pounds (590g) and has a polling rate of up to 8,000 Hz. Like other ultra-compact gaming keyboards, the K65 is highly customizable — almost all of its keys can be programmed with second-layer functionality, and the keyboard has 8MB of onboard storage (enough for 50+ profiles).
- Razer Huntsman Mini: now $69 at Amazon (was $119)
The Razer Huntsman Mini is also currently on sale at a number of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg. You can pick up this keyboard in black or white colorways, with Razer’s Clicky Optical switches for $69 (was $119) or with Razer’s Linear Optical switches for $79 (was $129).
The Huntsman Mini is a wired (detachable, USB-C) 60 percent keyboard with an aluminum top plate and double-shot PBT keycaps. It’s 11.6 inches (295mm) long, 4 inches (102mm) deep, and 1.3 inches (33mm) thick, and weighs 1.15 pounds (522g). It’s also highly customizable, with a fully-programmable second layer (Razer HyperShift), onboard memory (up to 5 profiles), and attractive, bleed-free, per-key RGB.
- HyperX Alloy Origins 60: now $59 at Amazon (was $82)
One of the best 60 percent gaming keyboards on the market, the HyperX Alloy Origins takes up very little space while offer great build quality and smooth, linear switches.
We reviewed the HyperX Alloy Origins 60 back in 2021 and appreciated its compact dimensions and great looks. The keyboard weighs a mere 1.6 pounds and measures 11.5 x 4 x 1.5 inches. It's available with both HyperX red linear switches, which we tested with, or HyperX Aqua tactile switches.
Cooler Master SK620 White Mechanical Keyboard Falls to $44
- Cooler Master SK620 White Mechanical Keyboard: now $44 at Amazon (was $90)
This gaming keyboard from Cooler Master features white keys with RGB backlighting. It has a small, 60% form factor and features a brushed aluminum top plate. This is one of the best prices we've seen for this keyboard since it first released.
The offer applies to the edition with low-profile red switches. It's a wired keyboard that comes with a braided USB-C to USB-A cable. Users can program custom macros and as well as lighting effects. When we reviewed this keyboard, we appreciated its performance and customization options but the layout can be a bit strange to get used to if you aren't familiar with the form factor.
HyperX Keyboards on Sale for $52 to $69
- HyperX Alloy Origins 60 (Red): now $59 at Amazon (was $99)
- HyperX Alloy Origins 60 (Aqua): now $69 (was $99)
Looking for a new keyboard? All three sizes of HyperX’s Alloy Origins mechanical gaming keyboards are currently on sale for just between $52 and $69 — that’s right, you can grab an ultra-compact 60 percent keyboard, a slightly-less compact TKL keyboard, or a full-size keyboard for that price.
- HyperX Alloy Origins Core TKL ABS (Red): now $59 at Amazon (was $89)
- HyperX Alloy Origins Core TKL PBT (Red): now $69 (was $99)

- HyperX Alloy Origins Core TKL PBT (Aqua): now $69 (was $99)
- HyperX Alloy Origins Core TKL PBT (Blue): now $69 (was $99)

The HyperX Alloy Origins 60 comes with double-shot PBT keycaps, while the TKL and full-size keyboards come in both ABS and PBT models — both versions are currently on sale. T
The sale models feature HyperX's linear red mechanical switches, but you can also pick up versions with HyperX's tactile aqua or clicky blue switches for slightly more.

Roccat Vulcan II Mini 65% Keyboard - 20% Off
- Roccat Vulcan II Mini 65% Keyboard: now $119 at Amazon (was $149)
Roccat's Vulcan II Mini keyboard was just released in September, but it's already on sale for Cyber Monday. You can pick up this compact, 65 percent wired keyboard in either white or black for just $119 at Amazon and Best Buy — 20% off its listing price of $149.
The Vulcan II Mini features a 65 percent layout: it's small but it still has arrow keys and a handful of navigation keys, so it's not quite as much of a sacrifice as a 60 percent keyboard. It comes with Roccat's Titan II optical red (linear) switches, with bright per-key RGB and a handful of unique dual-LED switches. This keyboard is definitely all about the lighting, and it ships with thin, switch-exposing keycaps and Roccat's attractive "organic" Aimo lighting experience. It's wired, and it comes with a detachable braided USB-C cable.
While linear optical switches don't make for the most satisfying typing experience, the Vulcan II Mini offered a better typing experience than I expected. The keycaps are a bit too light and slippery, but the keyboard is compatible with third-party keycaps should you want to switch them out. This keyboard is for gaming, anyway, and it's an excellent keyboard for that — thanks to the speediness of optical switches and the two full layers of programmability. The only real drawback is Roccat's convoluted peripheral software, but with onboard memory for up to five profiles, let's hope you only have to work your way through that mess once or twice.
Logitech G Pro League of Legends Keyboard $59
- Logitech G Pro LoL Keyboard: now $59 at GameStop (was $129)
The Logitech G Pro League of Legends wired mechanical gaming keyboard is also on sale for just $59 right now — 54% off of its listed price of $129. This TKL keyboard is the same slate blue as the League of Legends mouse, with gold detailing and “League of Legends” stamped across the top.
The regular G Pro keyboard is currently on sale at Amazon for $84, which is still a decent discount of 35% off the listed price. The lowest we’ve seen the regular version go recently is $78, so the League of Legends edition is still 24% cheaper.
The G Pro League of Legends wired mechanical gaming keyboard comes with Logitech GX Brown (tactile) switches and features a detachable micro USB cable for convenience. It has RGB backlighting and 12 programmable F-keys, which can be programmed using Logitech’s G HUB software.
These Discounted Keycaps Could Change the Way You Type
- Hyekit Custom SA, Doubleshot Keycaps: now $41 at Amazon (was $47)
When you're shopping for a keyboard, you probably think about the layout, the connectivity, the size and hopefully the switches. But keycaps can have a huge impact not only on how your keyboard looks but how it feels.
To be fair, most keyboards use keycaps that are designed to be blingy rather than classy or functional. However, you can change your whole typing and gaming experience by upgrading with a new nice of aftermarket keycaps.
A few months ago, a couple of us bought Hyekit's doubleshot SA profile keycaps and we've been very happy with not only their sleek aesthetics, but also how they feel while we're typing all day. Now, Amazon has the Hyekit SA keycaps in your choice of five different colorways for just $41.
Hyekit's keycaps will work on any keyboard that uses Cherry MX-style switches (not necessarily Cherry branded), which is almost every mechanical keyboard on the market.
They use the SA profile which reminds us of old-school terminal keyboards. The SA shape is taller than the standard OEM or Cherry-style caps that most keyboards come with and has a spherical indentation in the top of each key that makes it really pleasant to rest your fingers on and easy to feel one's way around the letters.
The Hyekit keycaps are made from ABS and feature double-shot molding. They have very nice, all caps legends. Each kit comes with 170 caps, which include different spacebar and Enter key sizes, along with a slew of special key caps with custom legends such as a rocket ship and a robot arm.
You can get them in the Circus (pastels), Dusk (gray and yellow), Top Gun (blue and gray), Yellow Screen (black, gray and orange) and Godzilla (bluish green and teal) colorways. I love my Godzilla set as it not only makes my keyboard look so much more attractive, but it takes my entire computing experience to the next level.
I love the tallness of the keys and the spherical shape of the tops and the way they make a pleasant thock sound when I hit them. I feel like an old-school hacker with these keycaps and I enjoy typing more than ever with them in place. When I have to go into the office and use a keyboard with different caps, I feel like I'm missing something.

Cyber Monday is over, but not the keyboard deals
The bright lights of Cyber Monday and Black Friday deal promotions have faded, but many of the top keyboard sales remain.
