Summary: i got mine at guitar center after thinking- wow played like a dream with great response in the keys. I got it home and babied it, but after a couple weeks I noticed it would wink out every hour or so. I'd have unplug it, restart my software and plug it in again.
Summary: Just realize a few things about midi keyboards before ordering this one. This keyboard is a plug and play controller. It has no on-board sounds - it's completely dependent on your computer's processor and software.
Very bad manufacturing, editing software just do not work ... :(

Summary: I had Axiom 61. Playing on it at studio was good. First problem was USB connector. It broke after (actualy very decent use) very early. Programming was simple and it had all the features I needed and even some more. As a controller it was not so bad. However dynamic curves was all not good.
Summary: Installed fine on 64-bit Windows 7 Home. The CD had the latest drivers and the Axiom came right up. Reason 4's auto-detect wouldn't pick up the Axiom but the manual Add surface dialog did. Sonar 8.5, Sibelius 6, and Kontakt 4 saw the Axiom right away.
Summary: This MIDI controller does pretty much everything you could want. The display is nice. Directlink with Reason is really cool. Not only do all of the knobs route to Reason devices, but the devices also show up on the LCD on the keyboard itself.
Summary: I sweated this purchase for a longtime, looked and looked, read all the reviews and landed on this: This is the most keyboard for the money by far. There is some talk of screen failures and the company does stand behind the product and replaces it.
Summary: My friend had originally given me an M-Audio49 key midi keyboard. I liked it but it didn't have all of the functions that I wanted it to have. So I decided to make an investment in this larger, more function based keyboard. It payed off.
