Patriot Viper V770 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
The Viper V770 is Patriot’s flagship mechanical gaming keyboard that follows the V730 and V760 input devices in the product stack. It uses an 104+5 key ANSI layout and sports full RGB-backlit keys like the V760. As the flagship keyboard, the Viper V770 adds several conveniences over the previously released V760. This includes dedicated macro keys, USB pass-through, analog sound wheel and more. It is available for $20 more than the V760 at $139.99 and is covered with a two-year warranty.[sc:sponsor sponsor=”Patriot” product_link=”https://patriotmemory.com/product/viper-v770-mechanical-rgb-keyboard/” product_name=”V770 Keyboard” product_price_link=”https://patriotmemory.com/product/viper-v770-mechanical-rgb-keyboard/” product_price=”$139.99″ ]
The Patriot Viper V770 comes in a full-color box as it should so the potential buyer can get a preview of its per-key RGB LED feature. The front of the box shows the V770 keyboard in a 3/4 angle view while the back has the keyboard in full-frontal layout. Surprisingly, there isn’t much text on the red and black themed packaging, opting for the images to do the bulk of the promotion. There is a small viewing window on the arrow key area so users can try out how the red switch feels like before buying.
The outer packaging is actually a sleeve for a thicker, inner red box. Inside, the V770 keyboard is surrounded by foam padding and is further protected with a plastic bag.
Underneath the keyboard in the box is a detachable wrist-rest (in protective white foam sleeve). The rest of the accessories are found in the lower compartment. This includes a Y-connector splitter for the headphone and microphone jack. There is also an orange key-cap puller included. There is also an envelope which contains the user guide and Viper logo stickers.
