Every content creator or streamer needs a few essential pieces of equipment to get started on their path to Twitch or YouTube fame, like a good keyboard and mouse, a microphone, a webcam, maybe a stream deck.
Here are some Prime Day deals on peripherals our team at Skytech Gaming recommends that can help you save some money on great streaming gear basics. You’ll need to act quickly though, Prime Day ends on July 13th!
Blue Yeti Microphone
Blue Yeti microphones are popular among Twitch streamers and YouTube creators right now for their great sound quality. The Yeti is considered one of the most reliable streaming mics out there. It connects via USB for easy plug-and-play functionality. The Yeti microphone comes with a cardioid pattern setting, which is considered an ideal audio pickup pattern for most live streaming applications. And Amazon is offering a great discount for it!
Elgato Stream Deck with 15 customizable keys
Stream Decks can help a streamer program special macros, commands, and reactions to a few easy-to-access buttons, helping them streamline their Twitch experience. Elgato is a popular brand for these types of peripherals, and Amazon is offering a great deal for their 15-key classic Stream Deck model.
Razer Huntsman Mini
Razer’s Huntsman mini is a sleek and responsive 60% gaming keyboard, offering just the essential keys for a compact experience. A smaller keyboard like a 60% style can help you free up desk space for other streaming peripherals, like a stream deck. Razer’s Huntsman offers optical switches for amazing speed, with a linear option for noise reduction or a clicky option for more auditory feedback. It even comes stock with Doubleshot PBT oil-resistant keycaps, an aluminum top frame, and of course Razer’s Chroma RGB. Amazon’s exclusive deal for this keyboard ends after Prime Day, so grab it quick if you want it!

Razer Tartarus Pro
For those who like a lot of programmable keys, Razer’s 32-key Tartarus Pro gaming keypad is discounted for Prime Day. This pad comes with analog-optical switches for fast response.

If you want a video feed of yourself for your stream, or face tracking for a Vtuber model, you’ll need a webcam. NexiGo’s N960E 1080p 60 FPS camera with auto-focus and a built-in ring light can do the trick for under $100, and it’s also discounted for Prime Day. The 1080p at 60 FPS capabilities of this camera will offer you crisp and smooth video feed, and you get the value of two pieces of equipment in one with its ring light!
