5.0 out of 5 stars Yamaha miracle., June 7, 2011
This review is from: Yamaha YPG-235 76-key Portable Grand Graded-Action USB Keyboard (Electronics)
I think that this 76-soft key digital piano is an awesome bang for the buck! You might want to get yourself: a power adapter, a good stand, the $15 dust cover available here on Amazon, and a sustain pedal. The piano sound and speakers are wonderful and there's lots of other fun voices to play with. A big plus for me is that the key action is quieter than acoustical weighted keyboards that cost under $2,000. I also like the five track recording playback and the built in metronome. They facilitate much more perceptive and objective self evaluation. I can't vouch for USB/computer connectivity feature. Never tried it. No tuning ever necessary. Volume control and headphone connection means you don't have to bother loved ones or neighbors. I've had problem-free fun on mine for more than three years now. Negatives: your fingers pivoting on the keys can cause loud squeeking as your fingers slip on the hollow, plastic keys. Hey, Yamaha had to save money someplace, huh? (Caution: playing a soft key keyboard will not develop the finger strength necessary to play an acoustical piano.)
