The Corsair Vengeance K65 mechanical keyboard is available for less than $60 today

If you need a compact, low-frills gaming keyboard, consider the Corsair Vengeance K65, on sale today for $55.

Today’s a great day to be looking for a mechanical gaming keyboard that won’t take up too much room on your desk. Both Amazon and Newegg are selling the Corsair Vengeance K65 mechanical keyboard for $55 today. That’s a pretty good price, as Amazon was selling this keyboard for closer to $75 earlier in the week.

Newegg’s sale ends on Friday night, while Amazon’s pricing doesn’t have a time limit.

The Vengeance K65 features Cherry MX Red switches, which may not appeal to some. Blue, brown, and black are the other switch types we talk about, with Blue being the “all-purpose” favorite for both typing and gaming. MX Reds don’t have that same tactile feedback as other switches. This can be good for gaming as MX Red often allows for quick double or triple taps.

Beyond the switches, the Vengeance K65 is a full-size compact keyboard. It lacks the number keys, which is why it’s able to be so compact. The body of the keyboard is made from anodized aluminum, the keys feature anti-ghosting, and there’s a detachable USB cable to make it easier to move it around.

What the Vengeance K65 doesn’t have is RGB lighting or a big time programmable keys set-up. But for beginning or weekend gamers this keyboard will get the job done.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
