The best Amazon Black Friday tech deals, chosen by Digital Foundry


Updated Thursday with dozens of new deals on PC peripherals and components, memory cards and TVs.

Massively updated as of Thursday morning with tons of new deals – including Razer peripherals, AOC gaming monitors, Crucial SSDs and RAM and more from Microsoft, Asus, Elgato, Cooler Master, Seagate and Logitech.

Following our round-ups of the best deals at Dell, Ebuyer and Overclockers, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the company at the centre of the Black Friday trend: Amazon. Today is a particularly good day to get involved, with big savings on Logitech peripherals, SSDs and memory cards from Samsung, Sabrent and SanDisk – and more. Here are the highlights!

For each product we recommend, we’ve looked at both the listed RRP and the actual previous best price on Amazon. This takes a lot of time to check for each item, but it gives you a much better idea of exactly how good these deals are! Let us know what you think of this in the comments – it would be good to know how best to balance how fast we can let you know about these sorts of deals versus how much detail you want to see.

Up to 40 per cent off Razer mice, keyboards and headsets

Sabrent’s NVMe SSD deals have returned, offering strong performance at an incredibly low price. Use the 25 per cent off voucher button below the price on each product page and then go to your basket to see the deal prices! Remember that PCIe 4.0 drives are currently only supported by AMD X570 and Threadripper TRX40 motherboards, so we recommend the PCIe 3.0 drives for all other users, including all laptops!
