Pros:I bought this keyboard to learn how to play the piano about three years ago. If you're in a rock band and need just a few essential effects (synth, organ, strings) Then this is the keyboard you should get. If you're into electronic music you can use it as a midi controller (pitch wheel works amazing on SOME effects)Cons: For professional or experienced keyboard players, this is not a good choice. But for people on a budget that want to play by themselves on their homes, or rock out on stage, this is the keyboard to get.My advice: If you're starting: get this. The piano sounds great. If you're into more traditional piano, then consider getting one with hammer action. If you get tired of it, then connect it to a computer or midi processor and use it as a controller. It's a win-win deal.

This may be a great board if you can get one without factory defects. We tried twice and had to return both of them - one for a stuck key and the other because the right speaker didn't work. After 2 lemons in a row, we lost confidence in the product and returned for a refund. MF had a hassle-free refund process though.

Best keyboard for the $$

By Jonah Krull

from N.Tonawanda, NY

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

I got this keyboard for my 13th birthday, and I couldn't be happier! The speakers are very crisp and clear, the piano sounds very real, and the number of sounds are incredible! Its an overall great keyboard! But watch out! If you turn it up too loud, it will start to crackle.

Super board for the money

By TropiRock

from Fort Lauderdale, FL

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

I purchased this keyboard (thanks, Musicians Friend!) and have only used it for a few days, but I can already tell it is an excellent product for the money. I'm doing studio work exclusively, so my opinion might be different if I were still on stage. The voices are outstanding, but I was mildly disappointed about the Grand Piano voice. In upper octaves, the sound is fairly realistic. Lower octaves aren't as good, but still acceptable. Aside from that, I love the keyboard. Good action, loaded with features, and the price is super. Where else are you going to get a great board for 300 bucks? Yamaha DGX-230. Get it. Play it. Live it. Love it.

Perfect Blend of Value & Quality

By 30 year pro

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

The only keyboard out there with this blend of features and value. This is a great choice for the beginner who is unsure how far he or she will take things. You need a keyboard to learn keyboards, period. This does the job without putting you at risk of overspending until you are sure you are committed to playing; AND, it sounds good!!

A Solid Keyboard From Yamaha

By Clayton-ycujo

from Portland, OR

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

I've been playing around with this keyboard for the last week or so. The action is fine and the keys are close to full-size, so it's quite playable. This keyboard has hundreds of different voices, but around half of them, particularly guitar and brass voices, sound terrible. It's not perfect, but for the money, it's a great deal.

An Affordable, Fun Keyboard

By Pete-8v94e

from Millen, GA

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

I bought this keyboard about a month ago and have had absolutely no problems with it. Its not as light as I thought is would be, but that's not a problem. The voices on it are great. Haven't heard it through earphones yet, but the speakers sound quality is great. It's good for anyone who is looking for a keyboard just to bang around on, or an experienced player. I would highly recommend it.

Fun, Easy and Affordable

By Jim-mngny

from Nevada

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

This is the second keyboard I have purchased, and by far the best. Using it for lessons for my kid and it is perfect for that. Lots of fun things to do when practice gets boring. Easy to record my own mixes to play guitar against. EXCELLENT keyboard for the price.

Open box

By Violito

from New Orleans

Comments about Yamaha DGX-230MS Portable Keyboard with Adaptor and Stand:

I purchased this keyboard thinking it was brand new. However, when I received it box had been already opened and taped. Also box was in bad condition and damaged with some holes (these probably from carrier) Although the unit looks new, I was dissapointed becuase I thought I was getting a brand new unit. I suspect unit was a return. Overall this is a good keyboard for the price you pay. If you are interested, I would try to make the purchase via phone and make sure you don't get biased like I did.
