Summary: I almost bought this. But, I noticed Yamaha discontinued all of the other EZ keyboards that had the features that I wanted. Now, all that is available is the entry level EZ-220 with minimal features compared to the ones they discontinues. I'm guessing that Yamaha will be coming out shortly with more enhanced featured EZ selections with IPAD page turner. Guess I will have to wait until they come out with the newer models.
Summary: I purchased this model exclusively for the Yamaha digital sound reputation, grand piano inclusive, and for the lighted-key option. It's GREAT and so much fun to play! Other visual learners will understand the benefit of the lighted-key feature. A full 88-key instrument with this option would be an excellent addition to the Yamaha family. The modulation feature (ability to play multiple octaves within the 61 keys) is a good work-around.
Excerpt: i bought this for my dad for christmas he loves it a great keyboard once again from the makers of yamaha great sounds and fantastic key lights a must for any beginners learning to play the keyboard
Excerpt: I love this keyboard as it is great for beginners. It's very easy to use all the functions and connect it to the iPad. I have always wanted one with light up keys but they are always very expensive. This one is well worth the price and I can see why it sells out so quickly. I am so glad I reserved it online when I saw it was in stock. Now I can learn to play without the extra expense of a tutor. I am very happy with it.
