Black Friday & Cyber Monday Mechanical Keyboard deals in 2020

Improve your game with just a few clicks — and save with holiday doorbusters.

Updated

Mechanical keyboards, sometimes called “gaming keyboards,” are quickly becoming more popular for the average user. But they can be considerably more expensive than ordinary keyboards. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great opportunities to upgrade your keyboard at a discount.

What is a mechanical keyboard?

Mechanical keyboards have physical switches underneath the face of each key that are triggered and bounce back when you type. This action creates a loud clicking sound that some users find appealing. Ordinary keyboards lack this switch and instead have a rubber dome and membrane under each key that records each keystroke. This softens the sound and feel of typing.

Gamers tend to favor mechanical keyboards because they’re more accurate and allow you to type faster. Since they require less force to press the keys, mechanical keyboards may be better suited for people who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive stress injury in their hands and wrists.

Top stores to buy online on Black Friday

Known for its large selection of discounted tech, Newegg offers mechanical keyboards at all price points. While these keyboards are often marked down by as much as 57%, look for even deeper discounts as Black Friday and Cyber Monday draw near.
