Roccat Kone Pro Air is one of our favorite gaming mice, not only because it has unusual, semi-transparent LED buttons, but because of its deeply satisfying click action. If you’re the kind of person who gets an emotional climax from click-like mechanical keyboards, then this mouse will pair well with your sensuous palate.

Highly customizable mice can be powerful tools for gaming (or for work), and although the Razer Basilisk Ultimate has moved away from our list of best gaming mice, it’s still a solid option. It has 11 programmable buttons, a comfortable ergonomic design and a very sensitive optical sensor.

There’s no more stylish way to streamline your productivity – or if you’re a streamer, your broadcasts – than with a customizable command card. Elgato Stream Deck is one of the most popular tools for this with 15 programmable LCD-lit buttons that can be customized to launch specific apps, run scripts, or integrate directly with the apps you use. It’s rare that Stream Deck falls at such a low price, so it’s a good time to grab one.

Huge keyboards with too many extra keys had their day. Now it’s about compact boards, like this 60 percent keyboard, the Razer Huntsman Mini. This is one of our favorite mechanical keyboards for gaming, thanks to its compact size, RGB backlight and satisfactory clickable keys.

When you think of “gaming hardware”, your mind may not immediately jump to routers, but if you play online, you might. This Netgear router supports Wi-Fi 6 and comes with an impressive array of advanced tools that can help players get their ping times down and allocate bandwidth not only to the device they are playing on, but even to the specific game , they are playing.

If you spend some time watching streamers on Twitch, you’ve seen this microphone before. It’s one of the more popular USB condenser microphones, and for good reason. Not only does it pick up great vocal sound like other condenser microphones, but it has built-in LEDs to light up the striking red bar, which may be why so many streamers stream to it.

This WIRED favorite office chair is comfortable and cooling. The adjustable armrests and seat angles ensure an ergonomic experience, and the lumbar support prevents low back pain during hour-long play sessions. Mavix does not have sales very often, so take this while it is still available.

Each month, PlayStation Plus gives away a few free games plus discounts on countless others. Over the course of a year, this subscription can pay for itself at its normal price of $ 60 per year. Of course, it regularly sells for less than that – like right now where you can top your membership for only $ 40.

SteelSeries Arctis 1 is one of our favorite cheap wireless headsets. It comes with a collection of dongles that let it pair wirelessly with PlayStation consoles, Nintendo Switch and most phones. While you can also pair it via Bluetooth, you get fewer latency issues with the adapters. Also worth noting, the Xbox and PlayStation-labeled versions of this headset are identical, so be sure to check both lists for availability.

The Astro A50 is one of our favorite wireless gaming headsets, especially because of its charging base. Although the A40 does not have the latter feature, it is also a third of the price, so it’s hard not to. This version is wirelessly compatible with PlayStation consoles, but there are also models that are compatible with Xbox and PC.
