The Razer Turret (opens in new tab) is one of the most exciting mouse and keyboard accessories Xbox has ever had, but it's fairly pricey at $250. If you want to spend a little less and still take advantage of the Xbox One's new mouse and keyboard support, you should take a look at these alternative keyboards and mice we recommend.
Corsair K70 (opens in new tab)
Best wired option
The Corsair K70 is sturdy, responsive, ergonomic, and colorfully stylish, offering RGB lighting that's similar to what you'd get with a Razer Turret. In addition to that, it has 8 MB of onboard storage that makes transferring your RGB lighting profiles from your PC setup to your Xbox One a breeze.
HyperX Alloy FPS Pro (opens in new tab)
Budget wired option
The HyperX Alloy FPS Pro keyboard lacks the fancy bells and whistles of more expensive options, but it nails the basics. It's well-built and comfortable to use, and the attractively low price makes it an excellent choice for someone just getting started with Xbox mouse and keyboard gaming.
Corsair K63 (opens in new tab)
Best wireless option
Corsair's K63 keyboard is amazing for people who play on the couch, thanks to its lapboard mouse pad and memory foam cushioning. In addition, there's even a wrist rest that will help you maintain hand comfort for hours on end. It also has a respectable battery life of about 15 hours.
Logitech G613 (opens in new tab)
Incredible battery life
The Logitech G613 wireless keyboard is built solidly and has responsive keys, but the thing that stands out the most about it is the incredible battery life, which can last for over a year on just two AA batteries. It's not as comfortable as the Corsair K63, but you'll almost never need to worry about battery life, either.
Corsair Glaive (opens in new tab)
Wired gaming mouse
If you're planning on using a wired keyboard for Xbox One, then the Corsair Glaive is a perfect mouse to go with it. Between the responsive inputs, customizable grips, and lighting effects, the Glaive is a fantastic choice.
Corsair Dark Core (opens in new tab)
Wireless gaming mouse
Like the Glaive, the Dark Core mouse is built well, comfortable to use, and has interchangeable grips. It also has a great battery life of roughly 24 hours, meaning you'll likely be able to go several days between charges.
All of these keyboards and mice are excellent, but if I had to choose, I would opt for the Corsair K63 (opens in new tab) and the Corsair Dark Core (opens in new tab) since wireless is generally less cumbersome for console players and it allows you to play from the couch, which is my favorite way to use my Xbox. No matter what you choose, though, you'll be paying less than you would for a Razer Turret mouse and keyboard.
