Print screen is used to enable or disable the Gamer Mode, and the Pause Break key allows users to factory reset the keyboard. On the page up key, we find a key to speed up the LED modes, and the Page down, we can decrease the speed.

Where the LEDs move in certain directions, as in the wave mode, you can change the direction of the lightings movement. As the direction on each key shows, you can make them move up, in either direction to the side, and even get them to move towards the bottom.

The right side of the keyboard is identical to the left, but this time, we extended the feet under the back edge. This moves the key caps into a more ergonomic presentation to the user, to lessen the stress of use.

At the back, under the lock LEDs location up top, Patriot offers a single USB 2.0 pass-through port. This is used for anything really but does clean up wiring for the mouse, or even extends the reach for headset cables.

With two leads running through the red and black braid, this 1.8 meters of cable is thick. Patriot offers a Velcro strap to maintain the wiring, and after the inline choke, we find two gold plated USB 2.0 connections. If we recall correctly, the connection with green guts is for the keyboard, and the orange innards are for the pass-through function.

The underside of the V760 is flat but does raise slightly around the flip-out feet at the back. Without the feet extended, the V760 uses five elongated rubber pads to ensure grip on the desktop.

Not only are the flip-out feet beefy, and come with a thick rubber end on them, they flip out to the sides. This means that when you attempt to move the keyboard away from you, the feet do not collapse while doing so.
