The Tech Report and our hardware partners have joined up to make this Christmas season special for some lucky TR gerbils. We've got a whopping 12 different prize packages to give away from the folks at Gigabyte, OCZ, Corsair, EVGA, and Monoprice. We'll be picking winners at the breakneck pace of one per day starting today, and we'll continue until our big bag o' gifts is empty on Christmas day.
Here's the deal: you only have to enter once, and then you're eligible to win for the entire 12 days of giveaways. (Multiple entries are prohibited, anyway. See the rules below.) If you don't win today, don't fret. We have more prizes coming.
On the first day of Christmas, TR gave to me...well, certainly not a partridge. And there are no pear trees to be found here. No, we have something much more fun for you. Today's giveaway—the first of 12—is brought to you by the fine folks over at Monoprice. One lucky winner will receive a prize package comprising Monoprice's Enthusiast Backlit Full Size Red Switch mechanical keyboard and a Monoprice XL Precision Gaming Surface.
Monoprice's Enthusiast Backlit mechanical keyboard uses red switches that offer a light, bump-free key feel. This board includes n-key rollover and anti-ghosting tech that should prevent critical keystrokes from going unregistered, too. The white backlight makes it easier to identify each key, even in dim or dark rooms.
This package doesn't leave your mouse out of the fun, either. Monoprice's XL Precision Gaming Surface gives mice a generous 17.5" by 13.8" microfiber pad to play on, and it's textured to provide more precise tracking than a bare desk or table might. The total value of these prizes is $80.04.
To enter the giveaway, complete the following steps:
Rules and regulations
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only (except Quebec).
We will be accepting entries for this giveaway throughout the 12 days this contest runs, from the time of this post until the time we announce the final winner on December 25, 2015. We'll choose a winner each day in a random drawing from all eligible entries. The winner will be announced on the site each day of the contest, and they'll also be notified through email. The winner must claim their prize within 72 hours, or they will forfeit it, and we will draw a new winner.
Only one entry is permitted (or required) per person, household, or e-mail address. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.
You must include your full name, a valid email address, and a physical shipping address with your entry. Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share your address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. TR and our sponsors are not responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as repetitive strain injury, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in this post's comments thread.
