The Skiller SGK50 S4 is Sharkoon's first ever 60% mechanical gaming keyboard. It has a hot swappable switch configuration and is compatible with all 3 and 5-pin mechanical switches. Coming in at around the £65-70 mark, it's certainly competitively priced and looks very interesting on paper – but what's it like to use as a daily driver? We find out today.
