   How do you pick the "ideal" keyboard for you, what priorities do you have? Personally whenever someone asks that question of me at the top on my list i always have build quality since i can't afford to have keyboards failing on me while I’m testing other peripherals or typing reviews much like i do now. This is just me however so i know people who for example place RGB key illumination, extra macro keys and type of mechanical switches above all else and this is actually the good thing about keyboards since there are so many available currently in the market that can cover the needs of every consumer out there. Patriot entered the gaming peripherals market a couple of years ago and since their Viper V760 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (check our review here) was quite a success it was just a matter of time really before they released its successor the Viper V770 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard which we've been using for almost a month now.


   Patriot is a leading manufacturer of high performance, enthusiast memory modules, SSDs, flash storage, gaming peripherals and mobile accessories. Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Fremont, CA, USA, Patriot is committed to technology innovation, customer satisfaction and providing the best price for performance on the market. Patriot products have become world renown for their extreme performance, reliability and innovation. Patriot sells its products through original equipment manufacturers, retailers, e-tailers and distributors throughout the world with operations in North America, South America, Asia and Europe.


   The first Viper V760 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard combined good build quality (aircraft grade aluminum chassis) with a number of features such as Kailh Brown mechanical switches, RGB key illumination (16.8 million colors with 10 different lighting effects), N-Key rollover, removable magnetic palm rest, USB passthrough port and shared media control keys. The new Viper V770 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard on the other hand comes with the same features including an aircraft grade aluminum chassis, RGB key illumination (10 different effects), N-Key Rollover, removable magnetic palm rest and a USB passthrough port and ontop of those it uses Kailh Red mechanical switches and also has 5 dedicated Macro keys, dedicated media keys, 3.5mm audio passthrough port, side RGB strips and even RGB illumination on the removable magnetic palm rest. So it really seems that Patriot has taken the V760 and improved it in many ways so let's see just what the V770 model is all about.
