The Corsair K95 Platinum is a very robust mechanical keyboard, and today you can get it on sale for just $99.99. That's a great low price that beats out the last couple of deals we've seen. The keyboard normally sells for around $160 to $200, and you can still find it going for $160 at Amazon. Today's price is a temporary one, so grab it while you can.

You're not going to have to worry about this keyboard's durability anytime soon. It is made with an aircraft-grade anodized aluminum frame, which means even if you're a heavy typer or just plan on using this keyboard a lot and for a long time it's not going to give way on you.

It also has Cherry MX Speed mechanical switches, which are great switches that are super fast and have extra durable gold contacts designed to withstnad millions of keystrokes. You'll get precise timing and improved performance with every hit of the keys. The full-key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting features mean that you can type as fast as you're capable of, including performing quick actions during video games, and the K95 Platinum won't leave any commands behind or forget to execute the buttons you press.

The side of the K95 features six programmable G keys, most of the keys along the top row are programmable as well for a total of 18 programmable keys. You can set up tons of custom macros and complex commands, including in-game macros. Perform a single keystroke with each press or execute multiple functions at once. One of the things that makes this really cool is that you can now use those G keys with Elgato's Stream Deck software. This is a program normally reserved for something like the Stream Deck Mini, but it allows you to execute special commands while you're creating content or streaming live.

The keyboard also includes programmable lighting with dynamic multi-color per key backlighting. Adjust the colors, the brightness, or add effects.
