Today’s best tech deals: Razer gaming mice, Sony headphones, and more

Ars Technica


Today’s Dealmaster includes a solid discount on the Razer Viper Ultimate, which is currently down to $93 at Amazon. That’s about $25 off its usual street price online, almost $40 off Razer’s MSRP and, outside of a couple of brief drops to $80, the second-lowest price we’ve tracked. While it’s still pretty expensive, the Viper Ultimate is currently our top recommendation among wireless gaming mice: it offers an ultralight (74 g) and ambidextrous design, a number of easily customizable settings, and supremely accurate performance. If you’re interested in a premium wireless mouse but would prefer a less flat design, Razer’s Basilisk Ultimate offers similar performance and is also on sale for about $30 off. Just note that neither mice connects over Bluetooth, so you’ll need a free USB-A port to use either device’s wireless receiver.
Elsewhere, our deals roundup includes an ongoing sale on Sony’s outstanding WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones, a rare 30 percent off sale on Away luggage gear, the lowest price we’ve tracked on the excellent VR game Half-Life: Alyx, deals on good portable SSDs, and much more. You can take a look at the full rundown below.
