Best gaming accessories deals on Cyber Monday: Xbox controllers, gaming mice and more

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

The holiday season can be a great time to pick up some sweet, sweet discounts on some great gaming gear. Black Friday has passed, but with everyone gearing up for Cyber Monday, there are fantastic deals available on controllers, mechanical keyboards, mice, headsets, monitors and more.

You won’t find reduced prices on this year’s hottest products like the Xbox Series X, Series S, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite or their newest accessories, or on the latest RTX 30-series Nvidia GPUs and AMD Radeon RX 6000-series GPUs — if you can even find any of them in stock. Nor are there any reasonable deals, as far as I can tell, on any graphics cards. Even the old models seem overpriced for what they offer.

All that said, it was hard to winnow things down — there are a ton of good prices, notably from Logitech, Razer and HyperX — so be on the lookout for those. All of these are available now, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for more as the discount season progresses.

Josh Goldman/CNET

Featured on our list of best Nintendo Switch controllers, the PowerA Enhanced Wireless is the closest you’ll find to Nintendo’s own Pro. It’s normally sold for around $40-$50, so even if you’re technically not saving $30, it’s still another $10 off. How low the price is depends on which model you buy, from Pokemon to Overwatch.

Microsoft

Gaming controllers don’t last forever and eventually you’ll need a replacement. This deal slices $20 off the regular price so you can stock up. It’s not the new controller that comes with the Xbox Series X and S, but it’s still one of the best.

Logitech

Ask any gamer who makes the best wireless accessories and Logitech’s Lightspeed line is usually at the top of the list for keyboards and mice. A bunch of its gaming gear is on sale right now, but the G502 is one of the most highly recommended in its class, so it’s a good time to snap one up.

Josh Goldman/CNET

The Kain 120 Aimo is one of our picks for best budget gaming mice, and that’s at $70. For its seemingly perpetual discount down to $30, it’s a no-brainer buy if you’re on a budget.

LG

This monitor from 2017 is no spring chicken, but for its sub-$400 discounted price you get quite a bit: quad-HD resolution (2,560×1,440) and 144Hz refresh with AMD FreeSync support. 

Logitech

Lauded by the car aficionados at our sister site Roadshow as one of the best racing wheels they’ve tried, the Xbox One-compatible G920 and PS4-compatible G29 have earned some attractive Black Friday savings.

Power Banks, Mice, Game Controllers & More Gifts Under $50

The pandemic forced many people to be quite careful when it comes to spending money. Still, you cannot really avoid buying gifts for your loved ones. Well, to soften the blow, we’ve compiled a list of rather affordable gifts that you can consider buying. The list we’re talking about contains gift ideas that are all more affordable than $50.

In this list, you’ll find 12 products that are all technology-related, one way or the other. Truth be said, the vast majority of them are tech products. You may find one or two that are tech-related, but not necessarily tech themselves. In any case, these products are not listed in any specific order, and if you’re interested, the list is down below. In it, you’ll not only find products and their price tags, but also purchase links, and below that more information about each of these products.

Amazon Echo Dot

If you’re considering getting a good smart speaker to someone, and $50 is your budget, the Amazon Echo Dot is a great choice. This is the company’s newest Echo Dot speaker, the 4th-gen one. It offers a brand new design, and it does look both futuristic and homey at the same time. It basically looks like an orb with a splash of living room furniture on it, at least that’s the impression I’m getting.

This smart speaker does come equipped with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. You can also stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and more. Controlling other smart home devices via this speaker is also possible, thanks to Alexa. This smart speaker is priced at $49.99, and it comes in three color variants. It comes in Charcoal, Glacier White, and Twilight Blue color options.

Anker PowerCore 10000

If you know someone who constantly charges its smartphone, and / or other devices, then a power bank is the way to go when it comes to gifts. The Anker PowerCore 1000 is a great choice, no doubt. This power bank comes with a 10,000mAh battery built into it, and that’s plenty of power to go around. It can charge most smartphones twice over, before it’ll require a charge.

This power bank is not much to look at, truth be said, but that’s the whole point. It’s supposed to blend in with everything else you’re carrying, and just be there when you need it. You can charge up a wide range of devices using this power bank, and it also includes LED notification lights on its body. Those lights will indicate the charging status, and the battery status of the power bank itself.

More people require a multi-purpose keyboard these days, as they use it on more than one device. Well, if you know someone with such needs, the Logitech K480 keyboard is an excellent choice. This
