Logitech MX Master 3Don’t Just Upgrade Your PC, Upgrade Your Experience!

As much as personal PCs have changed since their release over four decades ago, two things have remained fundamentally the same: the keyboard and mouse. And we have a feeling they’ll be with us for decades to come. With that said, we definitely don’t recommend you saddle your new PC with the same old peripherals you’ve been using for years! Stepping up to a modern keyboard and mouse can make your computing experience come alive again, which shouldn’t be too surprising if you consider that they are the two main touchpoints that connect you to your computer.

Our Latest Picks, Featuring Logitech, Corsair, and Razer!

For Winter 2022, we list our top 10 picks to cater to every user out there. First, you have our top 5 picks for home and small office products.

    While you may have an old keyboard and mouse sitting in your desk, treat yourself to a new wireless setup from Logitech, the MK270!
    The Guru’s Tip

    We really don't understand how Logitech can sell this for so little!

  • The Deluxe Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo

    Logitech MK735 Keyboard/Mouse Combo

    $80
    This combo includes two great Logitech products at one great price. The keyboard has built-in media keys and a wrist rest, along with a handy LCD display to show status of various options like caps and num lock. The mouse is ergonomically designed and offers 7 customizable buttons. Both peripherals connect to your PC with a single tiny, Logitech Unifying USB receiver.

    This is the ideal home office setup!

  • The Deluxe Wireless Mouse

    Logitech MX Master 3

    $100
    Nothing can bog you down faster when in the midst of a quick trade than a mouse tangled up on its cord. So we strongly recommend a wireless mouse, but not just any wireless mouse – the MX Master 3 from Logitech has an incredibly comfortable profile, ideal for use all day long, along with the most innovative scroll wheel ever to make its way onto a mouse. Its built-in battery will last up to 70 days before needing a charge. And it can even track on glass!
    The Guru’s Tip

    This mouse uses USB Type-C to charge, and will pick up 3 hours of charge in just 1 minute!

  • The Ultimate Business Keyboard

    Logitech MX Keys Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

    $120
    The sleek, full-featured keyboard is our top pick for serious office productivity use. The low-profile keys and metal frame give it a very professional look and feel, along with a solid typing experience. It also offers backlighting to make typing in the dimly-lit conditions easier, and being wireless, you can easily move it out of the way when you need more desk space. Finally, Logitech’s Flow Control software allows you to use it on multiple systems simultaneously!
    The Guru’s Tip

    This keyboard is the perfect complement to the MX Master mouse above!

  • The Deluxe Home Theater Keyboard

    Logitech K600 TV Keyboard @Newegg

    $68
    Want a great HTPC keyboard to go with your new PC? Then go for Logitech’s K600. It has two modes of navigation (touchpad and joystick), and uses Logitech’s proven wireless connection system. It’s even compatible with most Smart TVs, allowing you to search for content with an actual keyboard rather than just a remote!
    The Guru’s Tip

    This unique keyboard also works with most modern Smart TVs, making it a perfect choice for a home theater setup, and immensely easier to use with a TV than a remote!

Gaming

  • The Budget Gaming Keyboard

    Corsair K55 RGB Pro

    $50

    Pick up a great keyboard at a great price with the K55. It offers IP42-rated dust and spill resistance, zoned RGB backlighting, dedicated macro and media keys, plus quiet keys with a tactile bump to provide great feedback with low noise levels!

    The Guru’s Tip

    The lighting on this keyboard can be controlled via the Corsair iCUE software.

  • The Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

    Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 Rapidfire

    $133
    The Corsair K70 set the standard for mechanical gaming keyboards and is still the benchmark by which all others are judged. With its solid aluminum construction and detachable wrist rest, it’s a truly premium option. And for the very fastest gameplay, there’s nothing better than the Rapidfire version, which uses Cherry’s unbeaten MX Speed switches. The short throws give you amazing response and feel.
    The Guru’s Tip

    Once you try mechanical switches, membrane keyboards will be a distant memory!

    Ultra-responsive switches, a premium design, wireless, plus RGB. There is nothing else like it!

  • The Pro Gaming Mouse

    Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed Wireless

    $40
    Offering cutting-edge performance, there’s nothing like the Basilisk X for anywhere near the price. Ultra-sensitive sensor, Razer’s awesome HyperSpeed wireless system, and perfect ergonomics. It’s a great mouse!

    This mouse literally costs the same as all of its wired competition, and yet you get the freedom of wireless, which is priceless!
