If you haven't jumped into the world of mechanical keyboards yet, we don't blame you. Making the switch can be expensive, and it gets quite complicated once you start weighing what type of switches you want, which manufacturer to go with, and whether to go wired or wireless. If you're game to test the waters, though, Amazon has a mechanical gaming keyboard deal that's basically in impulse-buy territory ahead of Black Friday.
For $20, you can pick up this Pictek TKL mechanical keyboard (opens in new tab). Not only does it have a lot of what you'd expect out of a more expensive keyboard, but its tenkeyless design makes sure it doesn't take up too much desk space. Usually it runs around $28, but you can get that down to $20.39 by clipping the $2 coupon on the page and then adding the promo code SVSJSJFO at checkout.
PICTEK TKL Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The Pictek TKL mechanical keyboard is a great way to dip your toes into the mechanical keyboard space without paying an arm and a leg. You can snag this deal for $20 with the coupon code SVSJSJFO at checkout and by clicking the $2 coupon on the product page.
For your money, you'll get a mechanical keyboard that has switches that are roughly equivalent to blue switches on other keyboards. That means you should expect a tactile feel with more of a spring in their response. The keyboard also comes with a keycap puller for easy cleaning.
There's also anti-ghosting for all keys, 12 multimedia shortcuts, and 27 different LED lighting modes. You won't get the full RGB experience of some other keyboards here, but each zone of the keyboard features a different color that will shine through.
