I?ve played the cheap models, the expensive models, and all between. To tell you the truth, there isn?t really a thing this keyboard cant do that all those high priced keyboards can. It has millions of voices and effects. But sometimes you have to dig deep to find effects. I use this with my Marshall amp and it sounds wonderful. The effects, the tone, everything is mint. Not a single problem has occurred yet with it. There?s only two effects it lacks that i would like to have on it, but i guess you cant have everything. It looks real nice in person. And its real light so if your bringing it to gig with it shouldn?t be a problem. I use it to record some of the stuff i do in my room, nothing major. But it still sounds great. I love how you can change the tempo and the tune. I make Metal/Techno and a few bit other genres and this is perfect for every one of them. I was thinking about getting a synthesizer but i found out that this has tons of great synth voices that i don?t need one. Overall id say you should at least try it out if your unsure about what you want to get. Cause im sure your fall in love with it right away, just like I did.

One thing I like about a portable keyboard is being to play it anywhere where A.C. power is not availble. I've bought 5 portable keyboards for schools I work at teaching music. Most use 6 "D" cell batteries. I've come to expect this as the standard. When this keyboard arrived, I was shocked to see that it requires 6 "AA" alkaline batteries. Could these tiny batteries possibly power this keyboard for any length of time? My experience proved "NO" I barely got 2 hours of playing time using headphones before the batteries died. Other keyboards that use the "D" cells normally last me several months, even using the cheaper heavy-duty batteries(non-alkaline) batteries. For this reason I rated it 4 stars for quality. This battery eating keyboard will cost too much to feed. Too bad, because otherwise, this is a good keyboard with lots of features.

god sent

By justin

from florida

i have to say this is the best keyboard ive ever played. I bought it because i was looking to use it with some songs i wrote along with the guitar. I couldn't be happyer. The drum kits, the synth, the bass, its all great. The voices on it are a big help. I use it with a marshall guitar amp and it sounds amazing. But even threw its own speakers it sounds clear and awsome. I wouldn't choose any other keyboard out there. It's so easy to use and fun to play. I find my self playing it more then i should. The keys feel great on it. It's so easy to record off the computer too. You don't even need a MIDI cord. I just use line-in. You can easyly record on the keyboard its self. I don't think they get much better then this.

great value!

By veryhappycostomer

from exactly where my house is...

I have just recently ordered this keyboard after playing my friends PSR-E303. I was glued to this thing. I've had a very easy beginner keyboard and was looking for a while to move up on the chain, and I found this. Don't let the price fool you, this thing is amazing. I am an active recorder and looking forward to having this thing to record my strings, horns, drums ECT.I fooled around with the drums and man those are good for the money. Obviously you can't compare with something like real drums, DFH samples but these are drums are PLENTY good enough to record with. The guitars sound a lot like the Guitar Pro music writing product I use, except 60 clean. That sounds very realistic and versatile. Touch response is something I was looking for, and not only with the velocity the sound of the instrument changes (mainly grand piano) from a soft sound to a fairly hard to banging on the piano...All in all a very versatile keyboard, fun to have, fantastic value, and I haven?t even scratched the surface of what it can do...I CAN'T WAIT TILL IT ARRIVES!

Good Sounds for the Money!

By Jeff Myers

from Germantown, Ky

I use it for a top Synth over top a Yamaha Stage Piano (p80). I'm getting too old to program sounds, and I got an Analog Synth for that, so it makes for good Brass and Strings, Banjo is great! And......it looks pro on Stage! In the dark or away from it you don't see the speakers and it looks like a silver metal case so it looks pro sitting on top of the Stage Piano, which is a good Keyboard. You get decent sounds for cheap, and it looks good. The only stupid thing about it is it doesn't have Tremelo on ANY of the Organs!!!!!!!!!!! You can add some (harmony things) but I just bought a Boss Vibrato Pedal, also the envelopes aren't outrageously strung out, and you can just PLAY it without any trouble with it lagging. Good for the money!

Great Beginner Keyboard!

By Jeff Myers

from Germantown,Ky

I have owned a few Yamahas (Stage Pianos,Synths) and bought this one for a top tiered Keyboard to get Synth sounds out of, over top a P80 Stage Piano. The Transpose has no shortcut and takes too many steps to get to, and the Organs have no tremolo (not a single Organ Patch!!!!) Who wants all those Organs with no tremolo (have to buy another effects thing). It does however sound good and is a grrrrrrreat value for the buck. Looks like it's made out of metal on stage too. Want cheap and good sound? Get it.

great deal

By Fraer Jock

from Belton, MO

I have got to tell you, this product is really great! It has excellent sound quality, but might not get as loud as some of you may want it. It has so many different voices and they drum kits are awesome. I would recommend this fine product to anyone who wants to purchase it.

This keyboard is great!

By Pianoman87-GMZbg

from Eustis, Fl.

I don't care what anyone says, this keyboard is GREAT!!! I mainly use it for the rythmn patterns. I use the Yamaha S08 along with it. It has more sounds than you'll ever use. And has a good selection of rythmns. The only keyboard that I would recommend more than this would be thePSR-450. It has a larger selection of tones and rythmns. Overall, I love this keyboard!

Great Practice and Learning Keyboard

By Back@It

from Jackson, MS

I love this keyboard. I own and it is very user friendly, so much so my two year cousin plays it and knows how to work it. I am accustom to a 16 track sequencer which this only has two tracks but with split and dual functions you will never know that it is not at least an 8 track sequencer. I love it, love it, love it. The audio output wonderful and has clarity.
