Patriot really blew us away this year when they launched their series of Viper peripherals, but it looks like things are about to get even better. First up, we have their new keyboard, which is still not the final product, but it’s coming along nicely. Patriot has added dedicated command keys at the top, a scroll-type volume control, and dedicated macro keys to the left side, giving you even more control than before. It still has fully mechanical RGB lighting, but now also has an RGB LED strip in the wrist rest. Just snap the magnetic rest into place and bam! it lights up, awesome!

Now onto their completely crazy looking gaming mice, one tooled for high-end MMO gamers, with a high-performance 12000 DPI laser sensor and a huge bank of 15 programmable switches atop its firm rubber grip side panels.

The MMO mouse uses ceramic slipmats, while the more focused FPS type mouse uses Teflon.

The MMO friendly one even packs a unique weight tuning system in the top of the mouse; we’ve never seen it done like this before

The V360 has been upgraded to version II, and already addresses the issues we had with it in our original review, adding more bass, fixing the ergonomics and improving the fit; this is fantastic to see such a quick turnaround on the new model, and it’s a great looking upgrade too.
