  1. Just spotted this on Amazon, only today they are discounting a ton of Logitech products including mice, keyboards, tablet accessories, speakers, and few others. If you missed buying a new mouse or keyboard during Black Friday, this may be too good...

    It looks like those prices were raised incredibly high before introducing a discount...

    For example, this set: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I14395A/

    $250 for the set???!!! Excuse me, but the very same set has been on sale for $115 for a while now: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wire...s&ie=UTF8&qid=1422387161&sr=1-4&keywords=K800

    And how on earth could someone try to push that set for $250 when Logitech has been selling the keyboard directly from its own website for $99 since the first day it was introduced 3 years ago?

    It looks like just some sort of price manipulation on Amazon rather than genuine discount.

    You know how people are when they see 10% off! When they see 40% off it is hard for them to resist, even when they know it is fabricated. lol

    What's sad is that the two together retail is/was something like $100 each, so that list price is higher than buying the two separately... I bought the K800 new within days of retail release for $80 (opposed to $100) and after a keycap going bad Logitech replaced it for free... And I'm using a refurb Performance MX that looked brand new for $40... so much gouging but it is to be expected of logitech hardware. This was before Logitech realized people were doing this combo and decided to sell it themselves.

    That being said, probably wouldn't hurt to have a spare of my favorite keyboard/mouse combo... hmm...

    I bought the G27 wheel for $160 about 3 years ago. Although it was supposed to have been heavily discounted then, I still thought I'd been rooked. A good thing I'm not falling for this $192 special.

    In Spain the MSRP for that thing is 299EUR (~$340) and 199EUR (~$226) is the best you can do (@Amazon.es). That's why I still don't own a PC wheel :/.

    Yeah I got mine at a fire sale. I knew I was getting a bargain but $160 is still a lot of bread to throw around on a gaming device that's only good for only one genre of game. It's a good thing I generally like driving games otherwise I would never have considered it. Maybe only to resell.
