I encountered this amazing item at my nearest guitar center and fell in love with it instantly. I've played many digital pianos in my life...and just acknowledged the fact that most felt, and sounded, like toys. That is definitely NOT the case with the PF500 however. The action of the keys in itself is absolutely astounding, and feels completely real. The sound is where it gets me though. Every chord sounds so full, and every key can easily be used to deliver either crushing power or soft perfection. It's been a tendency of mine to visit guitar center just to play it, and I have every intention of picking it up as soon as I can afford it. The other tones are great as well. The strings, in particular, have a very full, atmospheric sound and are great to experiment with. All in all, the PF500 makes anything sound incredible...and although it has a hefty pricetag, should definitely not be overlooked.
