Patriot Viper V560 Software

The box didn’t include an installer for the Patriot software. You will have to download the latest version from Patriot Memory’s site. It’s a fairly small utility and very easy to use. You can store up to 5 profiles (although I usually only use 1). You can also set and adjust how much DPI you want the mouse to have per level. You can also set the X and Y axis to operate independently. Although, I’m not sure how one would use a mouse with different speeds for X and Y.

Then you have the Macro editor and finally the software’s settings. You can also adjust the mouse’s USB polling rate, enable or disable angle snapping, enable/disable mouse acceleration and profiles. I don’t really use Macros, so I wasn’t able to fully explore this part of the software.

Subjective Testing and Performance

I have been using the Patriot Viper V560 laser gaming mouse for almost a couple of months now. And I like how my thumb snugs and grips on the side of the mouse. I also like the feel of the surface of the mouse; and I could easily relax my palm on the mouse. I don’t have sweaty hands, so I can’t comment whether this would be good or bad for you. Like I said earlier, I prefer to use the mouse on a soft mouse pad, rather on a hard surfaced mouse pad like you see above (the Corsair MM800 Polaris). I didn’t use that mouse pad while testing and using this mouse.

While the feeling or the ergonomics is really good, however I don’t think that the sensor is top notch. The sensor is not that bad, but it feels that the optical sensor (on my Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB) is better; probably it’s just my preference. I don’t see or feel the difference when I just click and drag, click this and that or play games with either of the mouse. However, when I align things on my desktop (for screenshots) or edit photos on Photoshop; I think that optical sensor feels more refined and precise, and no or less jitters compared to the laser sensor. Other than that, I don’t see any major problems with the Viper V560.

Price and Availability

The Patriot Viper V560 Laser Gaming mouse is available now (actually for quite some time already) and it comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $39.99 (at launch). At the time this review was published, I think you can get this gaming mouse for around $29.99 USD only. Patriot Memory is also offering a limited 2 year warranty for the product.

Patriot Viper V560 Review: Conclusion

The gaming peripheral industry is a very saturated market. There’s competition everywhere, from low-end to high-end and from very cheap to very expensive gear. It’s very difficult to compete in a market specially if other brands were able to establish their names already or have set a certain standard. In Patriot Memory’s case, they are competing in terms of price/set of features with the Viper V560.

The Patriot Viper V560 isn’t the most expensive gaming mouse; in fact it’s very affordable considering the set of features that it offers. It has programmable buttons, interchangeable side grips and adjustable weights; and it even has RGB lighting and software utility. Ergonomically speaking, the Viper V560 has a good ergonomics specially for palm grip users. Your thumb gets a nice grip thanks to the contour on the thumb area with rubber surface for extra grip; and the general surface area is very smooth.

In terms of the sensor’s performance, I can’t really complain at this price range. And my overall experience while using the mouse was good. When it comes to the topic that it’s basically a rebrand of the old Sentey Revolution Pro, I’m not actually bothered by it since Patriot Memory implemented some few improvements and I think it’s cheaper now than before.

Overall, I think the Patriot Viper V560 gaming mouse is a well-rounded or balanced product. Gaming peripherals are mostly decided by personal preference. If you like the design, fits your budget and its set of features checks your list, I have no problem recommending this mouse to you.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
