Amazon Prime Day 2021 has officially finished in Australia, which means you can file your wallet away for another year (or at least, until Black Friday). But as in previous years, some of the deals stick around after the fact. You're mostly looking at peripherals and accessories here—don't expect to pick up a good deal on a gaming monitor, for example—but if you're after a headset, keyboard or mouse, it's worth a look.
Check out the list below, and as always, you may need to have a Prime membership to full take advantage of most of the deep discounts (in some cases you don't, though!). You can sign up for a free trial here, just make sure you cancel it before it rolls on.
Without further ado:
Amazon Prime Day PC component deals
Cooler Master MF120R A-RGB |
AU$78 AU$41 AU$62 on Amazon
These are our third favourite PC fans for a reason: It can kit your tower out with some super-fancy RGB lighting on the cheap, and there’s “lots of airflow potential” according to our experts. This is a three-pack, but if you want more, they can be purchased separately. This pack was cheaper yesterday, but if you’re still in the market, the new higher price is still decent.
Amazon Prime Day PC Peripherals deals
Elgato HD60 S capture card |
This is our favourite capture card for PC gaming, on account of its excellent capture quality, considering the price point. Captures up to 60fps at 1080p, with USB 3.0 connectivity. The built-in software is easy to use, as well.
Razer Gigantus V2 mouse mat |
You want a big bloody mouse pad? Look no further: this comes in at 45x40cm so only the most extreme of heated gaming moments will see you flying off the edge. Boasts textured micro-weave cloth surface and “high-desnity rubber foam with anti-slip base”.
Amazon Prime Day gaming headset deals
Razer BlackShark V2 wired gaming headset |
Here’s our favourite wired gaming headset for a touch over AU$100, which is a great deal compared to the usual AU$130 street price. According to our experts it has “killer audio quality, a great price, and easy to use software” to complement those 50mm TriForce Titanium drivers.
ASUS ROG Theta 7.1 gaming headset |
Look, not everyone has over AU$500 to spend on a gaming headset, but perhaps a ~AU$100 discount could sweeten the deal? The specs justify it: the Theta boasts 7.1 surround sound, virtual subwoofers and “eight ASUS Essence drivers,” as well as an AI noise-cancelling mic and USB-C connectivity.
Corsair HS50 Pro gaming headset |
AU$85 AU$69 at Amazon
A nice ‘n’ simple stereo gaming headset for folk who don’t want things coming at them from all directions like some hellish fever dream. This usually sits just above the budget range, but with this discount you can get it a bit cheaper, and it’ll work on your consoles as well, if you’ve got ’em.
Amazon Prime Day gaming keyboard deals
Razer Cynosa V2 Chroma gaming keyboard |
You shouldn’t pay AU$120 for this, as it can usually be had for around AU$70. Now that Prime Day is over the AU$48 price is gone, but this increase up to AU$59 still makes it a good price for a brilliant slab.
Corsair K95 RGB Platinum gaming keyboard |
A nice discount on this sturdy and flash Cherry MX Brown mechanical keyboard, which boasts per-key RGB backlighting and an extremely classy band of aesthetic excess along the top. Has six macro keys.
Logitech G915 gaming keyboard |
Our favourite wireless keyboard gets a significant AU$121.95 discount as part of Amazon Prime Day. It has Logitech Romer-GL switches, full RGB backlights and an amazing battery life. If you’re going to go wireless without losing your edge, this is the way to do it.
Amazon Prime Day gaming mouse deals
Razer DeathAdder V2 gaming mouse |
In our opinion this is the best gaming mouse, and it usually costs around AU$70-80 in Australia. As part of Amazon Prime Day you can grab it for AU$55. It boasts one of the best sensors available and is very versatile in terms of your clench size.
