For gamers, the LG C3 is. Beyond the usual benefits of LG’s OLED panels, like perfect black levels, it has features that are appealing for gaming, including a for super smooth gameplay and 9.2 millisecond response time to reduce any input lag during fast-paced games.
One of the best upgrades you can make to your TV is adding a soundbar to replace the mediocre speakers built into the TV itself. This soundbar from Polk is. It comes with a subwoofer that boosts all those deep, booming notes Christopher Nolan likes so much, and it has several audio presets that can tune the sound based on what type of media you’re watching.
If you’re interested in mechanical keyboards but aren’t sure where to start, the NZXT Function () is a great jumping-off point. It has a stylish design, and you can configure things like switches and keycaps at the time of purchase. It also comes with tools to modify the keyboard later if you prefer.
If you like mechanical keyboards that are loud enough to register on remote seismic detectors, the Roccat Vulcan 121 is. The switches on this board are illuminated from below and are semi-clear, giving it a bold look to match its staggeringly loud clicky switches (in a good way).
The Logitech G915 is one of my personal favorite keyboards, in no small part due to Logitech’s powerful G Hub software that makesdead simple. It’s designed for gamers, but it’s also useful if you spend a lot of time with creative tools like DaVinci Resolve, Premiere, Blender, Cinema 4D, and other high-end media-production tools.

Gaming Mice Deals
This mouse is. It’s light, comfortable for a wide variety of hand sizes and shapes, and features a couple of extra buttons without becoming cluttered.

This gaming mouse has a comfortable chassis; extra thumb buttons; and, perhaps most importantly, a modest price. Even when it’s not on sale, it’s one of our more affordable picks, and this deal just makes it even more accessible.
Other Tech Deals
Anker is kicking off its Black Friday sale early with discounts and a buy-one-get-another-50-percent-off promotion. Make sure you use the listed code to snag the discounted price for each product. We generally like most Anker gear, but standouts include theand the . Anker’s is also excellent.
The Google Pixel Buds A-Series () are . For nearly everyone–even some iPhone users–these check every box. They get up to five hours of battery life (plus an extra 19 hours via recharging in their carrying case), IPX4 water resistance for workouts, and nearly instant pairing with Android devices. This is a solid deal, but they do dip to $59 during major sale events, so it might be worth waiting for Black Friday.
For Samsung owners, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro () are . They produce excellent sound quality, with a super comfortable fit and IPX7 water resistance. They don’t have the multi-device connectivity that we like on the Pixel Buds A-Series, but if you mainly use your earbuds with a Samsung phone, these are a great fit for you.
A slightly more affordable version of the above, the Galaxy Buds2 () are another one of . They’re similar in price to the standard AirPods and get five hours of battery life with active noise canceling turned on and an impressive 7.5 hours with it turned off. They come with a charging case and deliver solid bass via their dual-driver array. This deal is only on the olive green color model.
