Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just a few weeks away, happening the 23th & 26th November respectively. Even though it all started as a 24-hour event, over the course of the years and after all the popularity it has been gaining, Black Friday & Cyber Monday have been extending their time window on every new edition. Now the deals begin early November and it lasts almost a month.

It can be really time-consuming to try to keep up with the best deals, especially since many of the good ones can last just a few hours. I know, it can be overwhelming, that’s why we’ll do all the research and all the arduous job for you.

Here you can expect to find the best deals on gaming pcs, consoles, games, peripherals, hardware, among many others.

This year the Black Friday event in Amazon is expected to be bigger and better than the previous one, so here goes a handful of tips that can help you prepare for all what is coming:

Establish A Budget

Prepare yourself and be aware of how much you can afford to spend, and, most importantly, write down a list of the products that you really need or want to buy. You don’t want to burn your whole budget before you find a good deal that really interests you.

Be Open Minded

Try to consider as much as possible alternatives to the product that you want to buy. Sometimes, you can find a product with similar features for a much better price.

Save Some Extra Cash

If you plan on doing several purchases, maybe you want to consider signing up on Amazon Prime. Not only you can save quite a lot of money on shipping fees but you can also benefit from many other advantages such as same-day delivery, video & music streaming, and many more.

In case you don’t want to pay for the subscription just yet (or never) you can benefit from their 30-day free trial and then cancel your subscription after Cyber Monday.

Choosing The Right Gaming Keyboard

There are two main categories depending on their key types: membrane and mechanical keyboards.

The membrane or rubber dome keyboards are commonly used in laptops. They are pretty silent due to the key’s short activation displacement. And for the same reason, they can hurt your fingers in the long term. This depends pretty much on how you hit the keys. Most of the people tend to press the keys with the fingertips (vertically) and is this movement which can damage your fingers after writing for a long time. If you press the keys more with your finger pads and you spend many hours a day writing or playing games you could use a chiclet keyboard without damaging your hand.

The cheapest option is the rubber dome keyboards, which are also known as membrane keyboards. They are pretty similar to the chiclet models so you can expect them to be silent and comfortable for casual users.

The mechanical keyboards are just another world, or a world itself if you want. There is a wide variety of models depending on the key activation mechanism used. They are not only used by gamers but for writers or programmers or anyone who writes many hours on a daily basis. And as you can expect, mechanical keyboards are way more expensive than membrane models. The downside of this keyboard type is that its keys wear out over time and they can lose its original feeling after a couple of years of heavy use, but this really depends on the product’s quality.
