Its usual price is a bit steep for an FHD monitor, but with the current discount, it’s an option we’d consider for getting a monitor for gaming.
- Logitech G733 wireless headphones with microphone for 119 euros (previous price 155 euros). Without being the best price we’ve seen these wireless Logitech headphones for, we think the almost €120 we’re finding them for now isn’t a bad price for one of the Swedish brand’s latest models, the stands out for its software, its microphone and its construction.
- HP OMEN Sequencer RGB mechanical keyboard (Blue Switch) for 89.90 euros (Previous price 179 euros).

Apart from the switches mentioned above, the construction of this keyboard is correct for the price at which we currently find it, with the lighting standing out among its other features.
- Marvel’s Avengers (Xbox One) for €39.95 (Previous price €59.95).

We saw this complete and whimsical PS4 controller for the same price last Black Friday for a limited time, so we don’t know how long it will last this time. What we can say is that it is a modular controller for the Sony console, excellently constructed in all its aspects and designed to be used in competitive environments, which is why it uses a wired connection that may be a red line for some can player.
- Asus TUF Gaming A15 gaming laptop for 949 euros (original price 1,199 euros).
