Black Friday is upon us once again, and now’s the perfect time to pick up lots of tech goodies. While that often includes the big-ticket items like laptops and TVs, Black Friday also brings deals on PC accessories that are handy to have around. Here’s a look at some of my favorite accessories and peripherals I already use, and some I’ll be looking to pick up if they hit the right price.
I have the Razer Huntsman Mercury White edition, and it’s probably my favorite keyboard I’ve ever used. The keys are suitably clacky without being too loud, and it’s a pleasant typing experience when it comes to work tasks. It’s an excellent choice if you’re looking to pick up a keyboard this Black Friday.
Controllers aren’t just for console gaming. Sometimes, even at my PC, I just want to sit back in my chair with a controller in my hands. Plus, I might have a slight addiction to collecting Xbox controllers, and $40 is a steal.
I typically stick with my Surface Precision Mouse, but the Logitech MX Master 2S is right up there as one of my favorites as well. The shape and size are perfect for long days spent at a desk, and the scroll wheel is one of the best I’ve felt on a mouse.
You can never have too many SD cards, particularly if you’re an aspiring photog. Sandisk is probably the biggest name in the game, and it has cut the prices on several of its memory cards for Black Friday. Plus, they come with an adapted so you can slot this microSD card into your PC when it comes time to edit your backlog of photos.
I bought the Samsung C27HG70 a couple of years ago at full price, and it’s been a trooper for me ever since. With FreeSync and 144Hz with HDR, it’s a great gaming monitor. If you need a solid monitor for games and work, the Black Friday price drop on this one makes it a good choice.
A solid USB-C hub is something I’m looking to pick up during the Black Friday rush. Luckily, Anker has this little guy on sale, so I just snatched it up. I’ve been an Anker convert for a while now because they make quality accessories, so I’m sure this one will be another great item to add to my collection.
Not everyone needs a full podcasting-style mic setup, but it never hurts to have a mic if you find yourself in a lot of meetings and want to sound the best you can. The Razer Seiren Elite offers plenty of goodies at a solid price, and who knows, maybe it’ll get you started on a streaming or podcast career.
One of my big resolutions for this year was to finally get my desk more organized. I’ve failed miserably, but I haven’t given up hope. One of the big pieces I’m missing is a great headset stand, and this one from Elevation Lab is both inexpensive and highly rated.
If you want to add Windows Hello to your desktop PC with some excellent picture quality to boot, Logitech’s Brio webcam fits the bill. The Brio will give you crisp 4K video for your streams and video chats, plus you’ll be able to log into Windows with just your face. How can you beat that?
What are you picking up?
All of these accessories and peripherals are ones that I either already own, or I have on my “buy list” for Black Friday. In particular, I can’t recommend the Razer Huntsman enough. Its opto-mechanical switches are both satisfyingly clicky and incredibly responsive, making it a great choice for gaming and general typing.
There are a couple of pieces I’m really looking forward to unboxing soon as well. The Anchor from Elevation Lab is a solid mount that lets you hide your headsets away under your desk when not in use. Getting Windows Hello on my desktop PC with the Logitech Brio is also something I’m stoked for.
