The Corsair Vengeance K65 mechanical keyboard is available for less than $60 today

If you need a compact, low-frills gaming keyboard, consider the Corsair Vengeance K65, on sale today for $55.

Today’s a great day to be looking for a mechanical gaming keyboard that won’t take up too much room on your desk. Both Amazon and Newegg are selling the Corsair Vengeance K65 mechanical keyboard for $55 today. That’s a pretty good price, as Amazon was selling this keyboard for closer to $75 earlier in the week.

Newegg’s sale ends on Friday night, while Amazon’s pricing doesn’t have a time limit.

The Vengeance K65 features Cherry MX Red switches, which may not appeal to some. Blue, brown, and black are the other switch types we talk about, with Blue being the “all-purpose” favorite for both typing and gaming. MX Reds don’t have that same tactile feedback as other switches. This can be good for gaming as MX Red often allows for quick double or triple taps.

Beyond the switches, the Vengeance K65 is a full-size compact keyboard. It lacks the number keys, which is why it’s able to be so compact. The body of the keyboard is made from anodized aluminum, the keys feature anti-ghosting, and there’s a detachable USB cable to make it easier to move it around.

What the Vengeance K65 doesn’t have is RGB lighting or a big time programmable keys set-up. But for beginning or weekend gamers this keyboard will get the job done.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
