Before I go on, let me state for the record that I have been playing classical piano for over 15 years, and I bought this keyboard for jamming and multitrack recording (both midi/audio).

First, for those who are confused with the entry level Yamaha portable keyboards, the PSR-175 is almost exactly the same as the PSR-175AD and the PSR-172. The only difference is that the PSR-172 is much more widely available than the 175s. That said, let's analyze the more important features:

Keys: You get what you pay for. 61-keys is quite all right for beginners and for those who want to do some basic multitrack recording. Better players should go for a bigger keyboard, unless you don't mind using the transpose feature. However, I gave this keyboard a low rating because the keys are not truly touch-sensitive. These keys are not sensitive to the amount of force you exert on them -- the volume for each key remains the same regardless of the amount of force you exert on it. Instead, the keys are only sensitive to the length of time that they are depressed (this should have been called a portable organ instead). By playing on this keyboard, you will never be able to develop a feel for a real piano which requires varying amounts of force applied to different keys. Thus I would not recommend this keyboard for serious beginning piano players because it only hurts your musical foundation.

As for the other features, the sound patches are adequate for most users and are rather standardized in similar entry-level keyboards. I have no complaints because most of the main instruments are there and sound decent enough (piano, organs, guitars,wind, drums,etc). There is also an automated drum synthesizer that's been preprogrammed to different music genres (e.g. soul, rock, jazz, blues, etc).

I've owned this keyboard for around three-four years and it still works just as it did when I first got it. While it is not touch-sensitive it does have several different songs on it and lessons (which I've never had the need for.) It's 61 keys are good for starting out but once past the first...two years of playing something bigger IS needed.

I, unfortunately, feel victim to the same problem as another reviewer. I ordered the PSR-175 but was sent the YPT-200 Karaoke keyboard, which hardly has the same features. Luckily for me, I was able to return it and received a full refund including the express shipping I paid. However, they promised me they would contact Amazon to have this listing removed, but two months later it's still here, baiting another poor soul.

I am sorry to say I really cannot review this item, because I never received it! I was sent, what they thought was a "comparable" keyboard, without the adapter, stand, etc. that was listed in the description of the PSR-175. I emailed the company shipping and called, but I didn't receive an explanation of why I didn't receive the one I ordered, if it was out of stock they don't sell anymore anything, I only got a credit for the shipping which, of course, did not cover the cost of buying the adapter and stand. This was for a birthday and I was very disappointed.
