Patriot Viper V570 Blackout Gaming Mouse
Upon first look at the left side of the V570 blackout, we find an outward bump at the front to house a pair of buttons, and five more buttons follow them along the side. The front of the thumb grip is made of plastic with rectangular grips. There is a sniper button and behind it is a large rubber section with grip to match that near the front.
The back of the V570 Blackout is made of two parts, which the body line can easily be seen. Off to the left of center is a notch, which allows the rubberized adjustable weight cover to be removed. On the right of center, there is a Viper logo which is painted on over the plastic.
The right side of the V570 is made of slightly textured plastic, and it is formed outward to give the ring and pinky fingers an ergonomic grip. We do wish this were rubberized in some fashion, as clean, dry hands will slide on this surface.
The front of this mouse is aggressive looking, with the pair of headlights placed under the downward curved brows that are the main buttons. The center of the mouse is left open, where the cable connects, and in front of the scroll wheel.
From this angle, we get a better look at the two buttons on the edge of the left click button, which we mentioned previously. Between the main buttons are the scroll wheel with its tire tread rubber cover, the profile and DPI buttons, and the lights there will change incrementally red for DPI and various colors depending on the selected profile.
After removing the rubberized section that runs along the heel of the mouse, we find a deep groove with rubber inserts in it. Even though we are offered seven weights for the V570, only six can fit. However, they can be fit in various locations so that weight can be distributed to deliver a perfect fit for any user.
The cable that is attached to the front of the V570 Blackout is a black braided cable which is 1.8 meters in length. Near the end of the cable Patriot installed a Ferrite choke to eliminate "noise," and when the cable is terminated, the USB 2.0 connection is gold plated.
With much to appreciate on the top, many will overlook the use of ceramic pads instead of PTFE, but that will be a mistake to do so. With five small pads installed near the edges of the mouse, Patriot can offer a mouse that glides with nearly no effort involved, making this one of the smoothest moving mice we have tested. The eye of the laser is slightly offset from center, and has the product sticker surrounding it, and is flanked by six stripes added for a touch of style.
