Black Friday? Watch Mechanicalkeyboards.com

I got a Ducky YoTR open box for $145. Much higher quality than a Strafe, or any of Corsair's TBH. And I have nothing against Corsair, but I would highly recommend a Ducky. Love mine. Had it for almost a year, still running perfect.

As for the mouse.. Personal opinion. I have found Logitech's offerings to be better than Corsair. I use a G403 Wireless and would recommend it without question. Same with the wired version. I also quite like the G502, I use one on my secondary PC, albeit not as much as the G403.

GL. :)

Would you consider Corsair to be like Razer products? There just for the pretty lights? I once owned a razer mouse and it broke just 10 days after warranty expired on them.

To an extent, yes. On the other hand, my Razer mice have held up well.

I've heard bad things about Razer and Corsair. Overall from reviews and personal experience they are not fantastic quality.

Logitech is not free of issues either.

In the end though, I find Logitech to be the best for mice.

This recent thread is good if you're wondering about the Corsair Sabre https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/294617-razer-deathadder-elite-vs-corsair-harpoon-rgb-vs-logitech-g403-prodigy.

Also yeah I wouldn't recommend the Corsair Strafe either. More like a Ducky one two rgb, or coolermaster masterkeys or a gmmk.

That keyboard is a 10/10 but I would get a better mouse, logitech makes some really good mice that I would recommend to anyone
