5.0 out of 5 stars Fills a great niche..., August 11, 2011
This is not an expensive keyboard, so you know you are not getting a digital piano replacement, right? It's keys don't feel or behave just like a piano, and sound quality is very good, but not through the roof.

That said, I'm really glad this came out! It's a budget keyboard with features more directed to actual practice and playing than having a million different rhythms and voices, or having built in piano lessons. It has a decent piano sound and nice touch-sensitive keys. It's very compact, and not very loud. I used to play classical piano growing up, and now mostly play other music, but wanted something to work on chords with, and to play for fun.

It's deceptively simple, but does have some interesting effects (for example you can change the tuning from A=440). Read the manual!

I think it would be great for small apartments or dorm room practice, as a super portable keyboard, or if you (like me) have a very limited budget and want your funds to go to features like sound quality and keys rather than a ton of rhythms and voices. I think it would also be loud enough for classroom use but I'm not sure.
