Sharkoon Skiller SGK50 S4 Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.5.

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.

  • Very good stabilisers.
  • Great price.
  • Nice design.
  • Solid acoustics.

KitGuru says: The Sharkoon Skiller SGK50 S4 is a very good keyboard considering the price. It may use an all-plastic chassis, but it still sounds fantastic and the included coiled cable is a very nice touch.
