Viper V730 LED Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
Peter Donnell / 4 weeks ago
The 2018 Patriot Viper peripheral lineup has been pretty fantastic so far. Just last month we took a look at their flagship Viper V770 gaming keyboard, packing more features than you’ll ever need at a great price. Check out our review of the V770 here. Then we followed up a few weeks later with their mid-range Viper V760 here. So what about the most affordable mechanical keyboard from Viper to date? That’s where the V730 comes into play. While not packing as many features as its big brothers, it’s still got the core elements gamers want, without the bigger price.
Equipped with brown mechanical switches, red LED backlighting with effects, full n-key rollover and anti-ghosting, multimedia controls, and much more, it’s very capable. Now, let’s get it out of the box and take a closer look at what it has to offer!
- Gaming Keyboard features 100% mechanical Kuehl Brown switches
- LED backlit keys with 5 lighting profiles
- 6 LED light effect modes
- 104 key rollover anti-ghosting and 8 multimedia control keys
- Aircraft grade aluminium chassis
