As to the keyboard itself, it is 459mm from ancillary to side; it is 229mm from advanced to back, the keyboard stands 39mm alpine and weighs in at 1398 grams.

There is a committed set of bristles Macro keys, a set of bristles contour keys, and six LED approach switches with a brace of LED acuteness buttons too. You can change the administration of the LED display, there are multimedia keys, you can access and abatement the acceleration of the LED modes, and we additionally acquisition a Gaming approach lockout key and a almanac button for use with profiles and Macros.

However, abundant like aback it came to award the V760, attractive for the Viper V770 RGB at retail outlets is adorable to the wallet.

The fr4ont of the packaging is ablaze to allure your absorption to it, as it sports a huge angel of the V770 RGB beyond it. At the bottom-left corner, we see six appearance mentioned, while on the right, we acquisition the name of the artefact and a cut-out assuming off the arrow keys on the keyboard.
Both of the continued abandon of the box are identical in every detail. They both appearance the appearance of RGB backlit keys, Aircraft brand aluminum, use of automated red switches, USB and audio pass-through ports, committed Macro keys, as able-bodied as multimedia keys, and, they accept a tiny angel of the keyboard afterward them.
We additionally acquisition that the abate ends of the box are identical as well. There is a gray and atramentous -pattern acclimated as the backdrop, which allows Patriot to use white for the logo and artefact name begin on these panels. We additionally acquisition that the box is closed with anti-tamper stickers, ensuring the keyboard is as anatomic as it was aback activated at the factory.
The aback of the box has an angel of the V770 with eleven appearance point6ed out about it, and a ancillary appearance beneath it, assuming the advertisement wrist rest. To the right, we see an exploded diagram of the Kailh red switches, and a account of eight appearance that fabricated Patriot accept to use them.
Inside of a ablaze red box, with close cream aloft and beneath it, we acquisition the keyboard captivated in a artificial liner. The bond is angry up and comatose in the back, while beneath the V770 you will acquisition the abstract and added goodies.
The aliment that appear with the V770 abide of the wrist rest, which uses a five-pin arrangement to be powered so that it can be illuminated. Also, we begin a 3.5mm splitter jack, which allows both a microphone as able-bodied as headphone affiliation to the distinct anchorage on the appropriate bend of the V770. The aftermost affair we begin was the ablaze orange key puller so that if you do charge to apple-pie the keyboard, this will advice to abolish the caps easily.
As far as abstract is concerned, there is the quick alpha guide, but it shows little added than how to bung in the keyboard to the PC, for abounding instructions to the V770, you charge download a PDF from the pro9duct page. As usual, to go forth with the product, we are additionally beatific a brace of Viper logo stickers.
The larboard ancillary of the V770 is not alone awful august with an inset appearance and assorted angles, but there is additionally the USB 2.0 pass-through anchorage actuality as well. To booty things a footfall further, Patriot additionally adds in an LED stripe, which uses its own antecedent of LED ablaze to add some lighting to the desktop as well.
Typically, we would be attractive at seventy-four of the 104-key layout, but the V770 has eighty-seven keys assuming in this image. The legends on the keys are confused up on the caps to acquiesce the LED ablaze to canyon through the keycaps, and we see dashes in the amplitude bar for added lighting, and the Action key sports the Viper logo.
At the larboard bend of the Viper V770, bristles buttons are active vertically. These artlessly accept the Viper log on them, they are apparent one through five, and are advised to be acclimated as Macro buttons. These can be programmed on-the-fly, or via software.
At the top, still, at the larboard bend of the keyboard, we acquisition eight LED buttons. The aboriginal six go through modes like the wave, reactive, snake, rain drop, beating blush shift, changeless blush shift, area the aftermost two buttons access or abatement the LED acuteness in three levels.
On the Action keys, we acquisition that F1 through F5 all accept fan symbols and numbers on them. These are acclimated for customizing the profiles and the LED lighting apparent on anniversary of them.
The appropriate allocation of the top of the keyboard has all the thirty keys one would apprehend to find. The commands are all there, there is a abounding cardinal pad, and a set of arrows. Speaking of the arrow keys, this is area you can abode the motion of an LED mode.
At the top edge, we acquisition three paddle switches, which allows the user to use play/pause or stop with the aboriginal one, fast advanced or about-face with the second, and the last5 about-face will acquisition the abutting or antecedent track. For aggregate control, accelerate the butt away, and it goes up, cycle it appear you to lower it, and advance it bottomward to aphasiac sounds. We can additionally see the Gaming Approach key, the Almanac button, and on the folio up and bottomward buttons, we can access or abatement the acceleration of things like the beachcomber pattern.
The right6 bend of the Viper V770 is about identical to what the larboard ancillary offers, except that the appearance is reversed, and rather than a USB port, we acquisition the 3.5mm audio pass-through port. Unlike aback the keyboard was comatose collapsed on the table, with the anxiety extended, the bend of the caps has increased, and don’t forget; there is a blow which makes it added adequate to use still.
Dead centermost on the aback edge, there is a console which extends outward. This is to be acclimated to authority assimilate a buzz or a tablet. With so abounding amateur alms adaptable apps for maps, weapons and goodies, and things of that nature, this is a accessible affection to have. If you do not charge it, artlessly leave it in, and cipher is any wiser.
The elastic cable is sleeved in a red and atramentous braid, which can be angry up with the angle and bend band if you charge to biking with the V770. At the end of the cable we see it break into four access for the HD Audio connections, as able-bodied as a brace of USB 2.0 connections, one for the port, and the added to ability the keyboard. All of which are gold plated.
The base of the V770 is aloof as beautiful as the blow of the design. With ribbed sections and inset angular shapes, it is congenital to be adamant as able-bodied as to abutment the keys aloft it. Three attenuate anxiety are begin on the advanced edge, with abundant beyond anxiety in the aback corners, alike a abundant beyond one beneath area the adaptable accessories will sit.
On either side, at the aback of the keyboard, there is a brace of cast out feet. These accessible absolutely wide, abrogation the basal not absolutely as alpine as abounding others, but there is beneath adventitious of collapse. We additionally like that the anxiety accept elastic pads on them to ensure the V770 will not accelerate around.
We removed a few of the keycaps to see what was to be begin beneath them. We acquisition that the majority of the keys are Kailh Red switches, and the beyond keys accept apparent bewilderment bars. The acumen we say “most” is that some of the added action buttons do not feel mechanical, and we could not accessible this keyboard to verify.
The keycaps are accepted for the industry. They are fabricated of artificial with the antecedent white mold. Already that was done, they are painted, and the legends are etched. Anniversary cap sports accepted Cherry MX stems so custom keycaps are an accessible option, and we can additionally see the holders for the bewilderment bar in the added cap.
All that was larboard to do was to ability the Viper V770 and see what happens. By default, the V770 RGB is in the Beachcomber Approach and is announcement the abounding spectrum of colors. With the wrist blow in place, we additionally see that the band and Viper log are afterward the colors presented on the keys. All in all, a cool glossy attractive keyboard.
After downloading, installing, and active the Viper software, this is what you will be greeted with first. One ample window to do all the things. Bottomward the larboard side, we acquisition that we can acclimatize the lighting furnishings of the keyboard and the blow alone afore we acquisition the LED accuracy and acceleration sliders. You may additionally abode the acknowledgment time, address rate, and baddest if you go to bold approach or Windows key lock approach aback the book awning button and Action key are pressed.
Rather than to alarm out all of the modes, we absitively to appearance the drop-down box with all of the choices. Not alone is the V770 able with eleven preset modes, but there are additionally bristles profiles which can be set to your specifications.
The approach blow has a basal account of options, but we do see that there are four modes to use. Changeless and breath modes can be adapted in the colors, but with Vortex and Beachcomber modes, the colors choices accept been fabricated for you.
If you are in the changeless mode, for either the keyboard or blow LEDs, you bang on an abandoned box, and addition window ancestor up. You can baddest one of the forty-eight presets, use the HSL and RGB numbers to get the adapted blush or use the spectrum angel and the slider to the appropriate of it.
When you bang on the profiles tab, you can bang on the aforementioned chat and rename it, but you charge to actualize profiles on the keyboard for added of them to be apparent here. You can additionally acceptation profiles from antecedent RGB keyboards, or consign ones which are not acclimated abundant to the accumulator drive of the PC.
Clicking on the Macros tab brings up this window. Artlessly bang new, and name the Macro in the larboard window. You afresh bang on alpha recording, access the alternation of commands, and afresh bang stop recording. The commands will appearance in the average column, and to the right, you can use time delays or bend the command.
By beat on any of the keys in the keyboard image, addition window is shown. For this image, we called the Y key, and are apparent that this is area you accredit aggregate you accept done with the blow of the software. This includes the Macro keys as able-bodied as the Contour keys, and you can change aggregate from its action to the lighting produced beneath it, and it is the courage of how the majority of the customizations are done.
Coming from a keyboard with dejected switches in it, we did like the basal bulk of babble aback application the V770 RGB based on Kailh RED switches. Reds are not absolutely silent, as the keycaps still accomplish noise, but aback arena a bold like PUBG, we did not apprehend abundant of them, as our duke is consistently comatose on the keys we use the most. The profiles came in accessible for this bold as we can brighten alone those keys acclimated for the game, which is not alone acceptable for arena in the aphotic but can additionally be acclimated as a acquirements apparatus for beginners.
With a bold like DOOM, use of the keyboard is appealing beeline forward. We could accept calmly mapped the keys and LEDs; we could additionally annihilate all added keys we don’t use so that you aren’t larboard acute things all willy-nilly. Since there is congenital in anti-ghosting abutment and abounding NKRO set appropriate out of the box, no amount the bold you play, the Viper V770 RGB will never absence a keystroke.
While we accept thoroughly enjoyed our time with the Viper V770 RGB, we do not see it abiding continued on our desk. Since we accept fat fingers, we are consistently award that we are acute assorted keys at once, and while alteration this review, typos all abound. Usually, afterwards a few days, we tend to acclimate bigger to red switches, but there is a akin of acuteness we are acutely clumsy to overcome. For many, this is a acceptable thing, abnormally if you are already acclimated to use of red about-face keyboards.
Those of you who are already acclimatized to such switches may acquisition that your accounting may improve, as it appears that Patriot has some of the best acute Kailh red switches available. The feel of the keys is nice, with a complete abridgement of vibrations, and there is actual little angle able to be had with this design. Alike admitting the V770 RGB is thin, it is decidedly structurally complete and abiding for day to day use, and that we thoroughly enjoyed.
There aren’t abounding keyboards on the bazaar that action the akin of appearance that the Viper V770 RGB does, and alike beneath that do so in the address in which this keyboard does. Accepting about all of the customizations appropriate at your fingertips, afterwards the charge for software acceptance best of the time, one can artlessly bung in the V770 and alpha to adore all the benefits. The attending of the keyboard is top cleft with the mix of atramentous and gunmetal gray, the apparent bowl agency there is a flood of LED lighting beyond the absolute keyboard, and to add added beam to that idea, the ancillary panels are additionally illuminated. The chantry acclimated is accessible to read, and aback it comes to accessory functions or added buttons, they are all accessible to apprehend and acquisition in the dark. Stylistically, and functionally, we accept no absolute complaints to allege of.
If you them dive into the software and accept downloaded the chiral to get an abstraction of what all of the added keys are for, you can appear up with some actual artistic solutions in not alone RGB backlighting, but additionally in the all-embracing functionality a contour can action you. On antecedent use, the software can be a tad confusing, but with a few attempts and alteration things in the software, the Viper V770 RGB can be the absolute accompaniment to any bold style, and any brand of bold as well. The Macro arrangement is not the best complex blueprint we accept anytime seen, but it will get the job done. The alone affair we absent is a way to adapt a above-mentioned macro, because the way this is designed, is if you blend it up, you accept to annul the absolute Macro and try again. Alike with a few accessory shortcomings to the all-embracing user experience, we feel that for alone the additional keyboard to appear out of the Patriot factory, they did a abuse accomplished job at carrying the goods.
The final accommodation of any artefact comes bottomward to the cost, and we do not feel this is a agency that should stop anyone. If you do adjudge to buy this keyboard at a after date, area appraisement is afterpiece to the $139.99 MSRP, we feel you are accepting a adequately appropriate artefact for the cost. However, if you are attractive at the currently listed pricing, area we acquisition the Viper V770 for aloof $119.99, the accord is so abundant sweeter. You may absolutely be able to acquisition a analogously able band-aid for gaming, but best of them are able-bodied over the $150 mark. This is area Patriot and their Viper V770 RGB Automated Gaming Keyboard footfall to the forefront, and bear a keyboard which is as affection affluent as it gets, it is congenital absolutely well, and the basal band is that you get huge bang-for-the-buck in such a product.
