As game installs bloat to unprecedented proportions (I’m looking at you, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare), it’s inevitable that you’ll need a storage upgrade sooner than later. Luckily for you, this Amazon’s Choice WD_BLACK SN850 1TB SSD is on sale now for $142.88 ($22.11 off).

Every battle station needs a bit of visual flair. Why not make your flair functional—like a gigantic mousepad that can also put on a great light show? Snatch up the Razer Goliathus Extended Chroma Gaming Mousepad with integrated RGB lighting, on sale now for $39.99 ($20 off).

The word “mousepad” doesn’t quite cut it when describing the Razer Goliathus. This beast is a substantial 11.58″ x 36.25″ x 0.12″ mat for your entire desk. Along the top side rests a soft cloth fabric for smooth mouse performance, while the rubber base prevents unwanted slippage, even in the most demanding firefights. Positioned around the edges, you’ll find Razer’s Chroma RGB lighting that can produce up to 16.8 million mesmerizing colors

The price history on the Razer Goliathus Extended Chroma Gaming Mousepad has been erratic since it launched early last year. While today’s offer isn’t the absolute best we’ve ever seen, it is the lowest price since the holidays of 2021. The Razer Goliathus Extended Chroma Gaming Mousepad comes in several fabric colors, though only the Classic Black version can be yours for $39.99 ($20 off).
