PUBG & DOOM
Coming from a keyboard with blue switches in it, we did like the lesser amount of noise when using the V770 RGB based on Kailh RED switches. Reds are not exactly silent, as the keycaps still make noise, but when playing a game like PUBG, we did not hear much of them, as our hand is consistently resting on the keys we use the most. The profiles came in handy for this game as we can illuminate only those keys used for the game, which is not only good for playing in the dark but can also be used as a learning tool for beginners.
With a game like DOOM, use of the keyboard is pretty straight forward. We could have easily mapped the keys and LEDs; we could also kill all other keys we don't use so that you aren't left pressing things all willy-nilly. Since there is built in anti-ghosting support and full NKRO set right out of the box, no matter the game you play, the Viper V770 RGB will never miss a keystroke.
Windows and Productivity
While we have thoroughly enjoyed our time with the Viper V770 RGB, we do not see it lasting long on our desk. Since we have fat fingers, we are constantly finding that we are pressing multiple keys at once, and while righting this review, typos all abound. Usually, after a few days, we tend to adapt better to red switches, but there is a level of sensitivity we are seemingly unable to overcome. For many, this is a good thing, especially if you are already used to use of red switch keyboards.
Those of you who are already accustomed to such switches may find that your typing may improve, as it appears that Patriot has some of the most sensitive Kailh red switches available. The feel of the keys is nice, with a complete lack of vibrations, and there is very little flex able to be had with this design. Even though the V770 RGB is thin, it is surprisingly structurally sound and stable for day to day use, and that we thoroughly enjoyed.
