A very good deal for the price.
4 January 2012
Summary: I received this item within 3 days of making the order despite choosing the free shipping which was a very pleasant surprise. So far I have to say that I am very impressed. The sound is good and the keyboard to my huge surprise is lightweight.
Summary: I helped get this as a birthday present for my brother, whose a fantastic pianist but had a ratty old keyboard, and let me tell you, this sounds phenomenal! We've use this in our band for 2 gigs and practice at our home with it all the time, and it sounds like heaven itself.
Summary: This piano has been great. It has a very accurate representation of a grand piano (feel, sound, weighted keys, ect). It comes with 10 distinct sounds, and having 2 headphone jacks that are compatible with regular iPod earbuds is convenient (I could play at 2 in the morning and no one would know).
Summary: We were looking for a piano for my daughter who had outgrown her synthesizer and was progressing in her piano lessons. We didn't want to spend too much since kids go through stages and may very well oppose playing in a few years.
Summary: Just a couple of years ago, a digital piano with this feel and sound would cost over $1500. I bought the unit so that I could practice with headphones and not annoy my wife. It has been great. The only criticism I have about the instrument is that the sustain foot pedal was a little small button.
Summary: this is a great digital piano for its price, dont think you could get something better for that price. the keyboard feel is amazing, the built in sounds arent the best it seems like if the soundcard isnt that good, but its ok for its price you get a full hamered keys which is great for some...
Summary: Not a bad 88-key e-piano for the money, but I was surprised at how poorly the samples were captured. Most are unusable - better strings, organs, harpsichord are available with most computer-based samplers, so a midi controller with 88 keys would serve you better if you're after those sounds.
Summary: If you're looking for a versatile keyboard synth, this is not it. This is a piano. The other sounds are fun (Fender Rhodes is great), but that isn't why I bought it or what I plan to do with it. Two things I was looking for: awesome piano samples, and a realistic touch.
