Gaming peripherals have now become necessary components of a PC. Every PC manufacturer is promptly coming up with their own gaming accessories because of the increasing demand in the market. The same is the case with Patriot. Patriot is widely known for manufacturing high-end memory products and now has a gaming division too. It has introduced its first gaming headset, mouse, and keyboard. This review is based on its excellent gaming keyboard for a hardcore gamer.
The Viper 760 gaming keyboard has a striking multi-dimensional style. It is varnished with an aluminum finish and contains matte black key caps, making it a sleek gaming keyboard. Its broad frame is set up in a surface-mount style, which makes its keys look like they are floating over the chassis, making them reveal the switches below. It also comes with a magnetic removable wrist rest which can easily be snapped into place whenever your hands become tired.
This mechanical gaming keyboard is loaded with all the useful and necessary features at a relatively good price. It includes customizable macro keys, allowing you to program them with the full spectrum RGB LED lightings the way you like. These lights fully illuminate each and every key with its 16.8 million different colors.
Moreover, it comes with 104 key rollovers, dedicated multimedia keys (which can be customized with different colors to help prevent any confusions), and full anti-ghosting capabilities (which play a vital role while playing games). With five profile control keys, you can save more than one gaming profile and switch between them whenever you want.
Not just that, but it has fourteen different light color keys and up to ten levels of LED reaction management. It also has durable braided cables and a USB pass-through port hole which allows easy access to all USB drives.
You can easily configure the LED lightings and macro profiles, which comes handy while playing a game. Players can set certain keys with specific colors so that they can easily tell just by the shade of light which keys to press, even without looking down at the keyboard. It provides you with more speed while playing games. It also has a superb build quality, and the magnetic wrist rest lets your hand relax during small breaks. This feature is imperative for people with small hands. No doubt, it is a very user-friendly keyboard with all the primary functions of a gaming keyboard.
