As a practice piano it is completely acceptable. The touch of the keys is pretty good and the piano sound is fine too.
As a recording piano it is not entirely acceptable. Even with lots of added reverb, the sound tends to come across as "too close". This is a pity, because the recorded piano sound itself is quite realistic, better than it sounds over the SP250's built-in speakers.
As a MIDI controller this is all but a complete bust. The Korg ignores MIDI control changes above 30 (30-128), so it's extremely limited as a controller. This was by no means made clear in the literature or reviews for the keyboard. I came across it in the middle of the owner's manual as I was puzzling through the fact that I couldn't access most of the banks and sounds in my sound module.
As it stands, this will be a fine practice piano for my husband, but I've had to purchase a new controller and digital piano.
I have played a digital piano for 3 years and my old piano was a starter Yamaha, YPT 310. I would highly recommend this 62 key digital as a starter. It has every function you can think of and it is very easy to play.
I was ready to move up to a full piano and my new Korg has everything I need. I am glad to have the larger piano keys as I was always hitting more than one key on my starter Yamaha. I love the speakers on the Korg. The sound moves across the speakers as you play the keys just like a real piano. I also love the solid sound of the piano.
Overall the SP250 is a great bargin because it includes the piano stand (made to fit this piano), a bench, and headphones. I had a budget and for $700, I got everything I needed to continue my musical hobby.
Two more items: 1. the piano does not have a recorder. My Yamaha had one. It is something you can buy separately. 2. Expect to take a while to get used to the weighted keys. However, it is a transition I needed to make.
Very satisfied with this product.
Three keys were stuck when we got it - presumably from shipping. I took the cover off and gently unsnagged them. It has worked perfectly since!
Another bad thing is that I can hear the sound that the "weighted key" hit the plastic, which is sort of loud enough to affect the sound from speaker. Better with headset on.

The piano was delivered very quickly. The stand is sturdy and was easy to put together. The sound and the action are quite realistic. Read morePublished on March 14, 2012 by Jonathan
