Viper V770 RGB Continued
Dead center on the back edge, there is a panel which extends outward. This is to be used to hold onto a phone or a tablet. With so many games offering mobile apps for maps, weapons and goodies, and things of that nature, this is a handy feature to have. If you do not need it, simply leave it in, and nobody is any wiser.
The rubber cable is sleeved in a red and black braid, which can be tied up with the hook and loop strap if you need to travel with the V770. At the end of the cable we see it breaks into four connections for the HD Audio connections, as well as a pair of USB 2.0 connections, one for the port, and the other to power the keyboard. All of which are gold plated.
The underside of the V770 is just as stylish as the rest of the design. With ribbed sections and inset angular shapes, it is built to be rigid as well as to support the keys above it. Three thin feet are found on the front edge, with much larger feet in the back corners, even a much larger one under where the mobile devices will sit.
On either side, at the back of the keyboard, there is a pair of flip out feet. These open quite wide, leaving the foot not quite as tall as many others, but there is less chance of collapse. We also like that the feet have rubber pads on them to ensure the V770 will not slide around.
We removed a few of the keycaps to see what was to be found under them. We find that the majority of the keys are Kailh Red switches, and the larger keys have exposed torsion bars. The reason we say "most" is that some of the extra function buttons do not feel mechanical, and we could not open this keyboard to verify.
The keycaps are standard for the industry. They are made of plastic with the initial white mold. Once that was done, they are painted, and the legends are etched. Each cap sports standard Cherry MX stems so custom keycaps are an easy option, and we can also see the holders for the torsion bar in the wider cap.
All that was left to do was to power the Viper V770 and see what happens. By default, the V770 RGB is in the Wave Mode and is displaying the full spectrum of colors. With the wrist rest in place, we also see that the stripe and Viper log are following the colors presented on the keys. All in all, a super slick looking keyboard.
