Razer Kiyo Pro $130 (70%)


We love the Razer Kiyo Pro, but the MSRP is way too high. This 1080p camera is priced at a more affordable price. The sensor is larger than the more expensive sibling. This allows for great picture quality. However, you will need to adjust some settings in Razer’s Synapse app. The price is now lower than ever before.
