Patriot Memory Viper V570 RGB Blackout Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2019-08-02

After configuring the mouse with our preferences via software, we went ahead and fired up some missions in Guild Wars 2; the Avago ADNS 9800 laser sensor performed admirably, despite the lower maximum DPI value supported versus the optical high-end sensors we have seen with other mice. Thanks to the use of ceramic feet, which do allow the mouse to move on the surface with almost no friction at all, the V570 Blackout is very easy to operate, even with its initial weight of 152.9 grams.

Packaging, A Closer Look Part I

We were used to reviewing lots of storage-related products and RAM from Patriot Memory, but in this particular article we will concentrate upon the peripheral side of the same manufacturer and to be more exact, the Viper V570 Gaming Mouse. It is available in two different color schemes (the original black/red, but also the all-black edition named Blackout), comes with a laser sensor with up to 12000PI via software capabilities, ceramic footpads but also a manually adjustable weight system.

The V570 Blackout is shipped inside a compact cardboard enclosure, with a photo of the product in operation on the top cover, along with its main highlights:




A side view photos is also available on the packaging:




The opposite side does advertise the 12000 DPI laser sensor (8000 DPI is the non-interpolated value), the RGB lighting system, the adjustable weight system but also the chosen MMO+FPS chassis and button layout choice:




On the back, the manufacturer explains the product components in more detail:




The top cover opens up as a book in order to see a more in-depth explanation of the products’ main highlights, but also for taking a look at the mouse itself:




Besides the mouse and its bundle, we will also receive a nice red envelope, with the Viper logo on it:




The inside contents are a Quick Start Guide, but also a nice set of Viper stickers, similar to the ones we have received with Patriot memory kits in the past:




The manual will quickly explain the setup procedure, the predefined button settings, the software installation steps but also some troubleshooting hints:




The Viper V570 is one of the larger mice out there (4.4 x 8 x 13.3 cm (HWD)), while the Blackout version fits well with most gaming systems, being an all-black color scheme; as a bundle, the user does also receive a small weight box; Patriot Memory is using a fully braided cable with this model, but also gold plated contacts for the USB port, in order to achieve optimal contact:
