Sharkoon Skiller SGK30: Mechanical gaming keyboard
Sharkoon presents the Skiller SGK30, a new mechanical gaming keyboard that is supposed to impress with buttons from Huano and customizable RGB lighting.
Mechanical buttons in two variants
Like its predecessors, the Skiller SGK30 uses mechanical buttons in two different variants. The blue pushbuttons have tactile characteristics, trigger at an actuation force of 50 grams, and feature precisely felt switch and click points. The red buttons, on the other hand, have a linear switching characteristic and trigger at an applied force of 45 grams. Switching and click points are not noticeable here. The life expectancy of the keys is 50 million strokes in both cases. They are equipped with N-key rollover and anti-ghosting.
Simple design with illumination
The overall design of the keyboard is simple. Except for the RGB lighting, which can be customized to your own preferences in the manufacturer’s free software, there are no extras. The keyboard has a three-block layout, measures 440 x 144 x 35 mm and is connected to the PC via USB cable. The cable is textile-covered and the USB port is gold-plated, which is supposed to serve durability. The device is only compatible with Windows computers.
Price and Availability
Available immediately, the Skiller SGK30 is priced at around 50 euros. It is thus one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards on the gaming market. Combined with the quality offered, this makes it a potentially popular entry-level model.
