Razer gaming deals aren't too rare these days, but we rarely see sales quite as good as this half-price Razer BlackWidow Elite at Amazon, retailing for just $84.99 (was $169.99).

It's still quite pricey, but for a premium peripheral such as this (and one used by top gamers the world over), it's a great buy - especially if you're looking for that perfect Christmas gaming gift.

The Razer BlackWidow Elite is a fully mechanical keyboard, and currently you can choose between the Razer yellow or orange switch types at this price. Both are silent switches, but they have very different typing feels. If you prefer a slightly more sensitive or tactile feel with more of a bump when you type, then you'll want to go for the orange switches. The yellow switches on the other hand are a linear design, more akin to the traditional Cherry MX switches, and forgo that tactile feedback for a much smoother feel overall. 

Whichever switch type you go for, you'll be getting your hands on one very premium keyboard indeed here, with full RGB Chroma lighting, a host of media controls, and also a magnetic detachable padded wrist support. It should - like most good mechanical keyboards - last you for years down the road too (assuming you don't spill anything on it), making it a pretty great gaming investment overall.

There are also a few other good gaming keyboard deals on Razer peripherals at Amazon today if you're interested. We've rounded up a few highlights just down below just in case you were thinking about bundling up or wanted something a little cheaper for that perfect Christmas gaming gift.
