Best Buy’s deal of the day for today features a range of Razer products worth considering for any of your gaming or streaming needs, and Amazon is matching or beating some of these prices. If retailers are competing, you’re probably winning.
There are multiple options of keyboards and mice, as well as the top-range webcam from Razer and its compact microphone. For your mechanical keyboard fix, you can go big or small. If you prefer compact, you can pick between black or white versions of Razer’s Huntsman Mini 60-percent boards with clicky optical switches for just $95 at Best Buy or $94 at Amazon. A small-format keyboard might be intimidating at first, with its omission of a number pad and F-keys, but it allows you to keep your hands closer together for a more ergonomic feel.
If a full-size board is more in your comfort zone, the larger BlackWidow V3 with Razer’s clicky green switches for that tactile and audible response is $100 — saving you $40 at both Best Buy and Amazon.
Other notable Razer deals to consider today are its top-tier Kiyo Pro webcam for $155, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate wireless mouse for $90 at Amazon, the more modest entry-level Basilisk X wireless mouse for just $35 at both Best Buy and Amazon, and the Seiren Mini condenser microphone for just $40 at Best Buy. The latter is a very compact microphone that can be a gateway for getting started with streaming, pairing nicely with the Kiyo Pro for a one-two punch of audio and video. If you opt for the pink version of the Seiren Mini at Best Buy, it’s just $30.
The Kiyo Pro is a lens-shaped webcam that supports up to 1080p resolution capture at 60 frames per second. It features an ultrawide 103-degree field of view, though it can be adjusted down to 80 degrees. The Kiyo Pro has a built-in mic.
The Razer Seiren Mini is an ultra-compact condenser mic for streaming on Twitch or chatting with friends on Discord. It has a supercardioid pickup pattern to focus on your voice, though, bear in mind it needs to be close to your mouth in order to isolate your voice.
This massive 70-inch 4K Smart TV from Samsung is currently enjoying a $150 discount at Best Buy. This voice-assistant enabled Smart TV is currently available for its lowest price ever, making it an excellent value for anyone looking for a larger-than-average HDR panel. The Tizen smart platform is compatible with most major streaming services, but this model does have a built-in USB port if you want to expand your channel selection with a Roku or other peripheral streaming device. This model features two HDMI inputs but doesn’t have any component inputs, however, this omission likely won’t affect you unless you’re using devices that are more than 10 years old.
The HP 15 laptop is an excellent option for anyone who needs a sensible, budget-friendly laptop. Best Buy is currently offering this model for $400, the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this particular model. Its specs aren’t going to blow anyone out of the water, but it’s more than up to the task if you need to take work away from your desk. The HP 15 features a 15-inch 1080p screen powered by Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics.
A pair of USB-A ports for peripherals is backed up by an SDXC card slot, an HDMI output, and a single USB-C port. Just take note that the USB-C port is not Thunderbolt 4 compatible, however, so it won’t work with a Thunderbolt dock if you need the extra connectivity.
The Lenovo Yoga 7i 14 ultraportable touchscreen laptop is a great thin and light 2-in-1 for everyday computing needs or getting work done while traveling. Best Buy is currently offering it for $200 off until October 23rd, bringing the price down to just $750. That’s a great value for a laptop which is ready for commuting and fully compatible with a free Windows 11 upgrade.
An ultra-slick 2-in-1 laptop from Lenovo, the Lenovo Yoga 7i 14 is a well-rounded ultraportable that can double as a tablet. This laptop is equipped with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, a 512GB SSD, and Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics.
If your home is struggling with your current wireless setup, you might benefit from an upgrade. Currently, at Best Buy you can grab this Netgear Nighthawk Wi-Fi 6 router for half off, bringing it down to just $150, its lowest price ever. Like most people, you’re probably spending top dollar on your ISP’s internet connection, but if you feel your download speeds are still having a hard time, you could probably benefit from a better router. The AX5200 offers transfer speeds up to 5,200MB/s over Wi-Fi and managing your security settings is made easy through the Nighthawk app.
Some deals to revisit or reconsider
We just featured the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 in yesterday’s roundup, but now Woot also has them for even cheaper at just $100. This is a new all-time low for the noise-canceling wireless earbuds from Samsung, though note that this new offer comes with a 90-day warranty direct from Woot. If you prefer the full one-year warranty, the deal for $130 at Amazon is still going. Read our review.
A similar deal across Amazon and Woot can be had on the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. Woot has an international model with its own 90-day warranty for only $115, while Amazon has the USA model, complete with a one-year warranty from Samsung, for $150. This is another nice choice of ANC earbuds if you prefer to have its IPX7 water and sweat resistance. Read our review.
Lastly, the Sony WH-1000XM4 Bluetooth headphones are still on sale for the limited-time pricing of $248 on Amazon. We don’t know how much longer this deal will stick around, but there’s a reason it has been one of our favorite over-ear wireless headphones. These headphones are comfy to wear and they offer great sound quality with active noise cancellation. Read our review.
