In 2017, if your new gaming keyboard aimed at the top-tier of gear doesn’t offer RGB lighting and mechanical key switches, you are going to have a tough time getting potential buyers interested. Patriot seems to know this, and has designed their V770 gaming keyboard to include not only these features, but many more that help set it apart from the competition. In addition to the per-key lighting, Patriot has configured the V770 with multiple additional lighting zones, as well as a few creature comforts that make interacting with your PC a bit more friendly. Follow along as we take a look at the Patriot Viper V770 Mechanical RGB keyboard.

Enticing retail shoppers to take a look at the V770 is a nicely designed exterior box that sports a large image of the keyboard found inside. Six features are highlighted towards the bottom left of the front of the box, while a small window provides a small peek at the arrow keys inside.
The back of the box provides a bit more detailed information about the features of the V770, along with a few additional informational images.
With the outer shell removed, we gain access to a red interior box that keeps the actual product in place. This interior box is well padded, with form-fitting foam attached to many of the panels to keep the keyboard and its accessories safe. Nothing is worse than spending your hard earned money on a product, only for it to arrive damaged. We think Patriot has done a great job working to prevent this type of occurrence.
Accessories that come along with the Viper V770 include two Viper logo stickers, a Quick Start Guide, a plastic key puller, and a headset-to-mic/headphone adapter. The printed materials and stickers come bundled in a nice red pouch with a white Viper logo.
