Summary: I didn't bought it on amazon but this works as promise, the only thing i was upset was the plug in but that didn't stop me, also batteries are worth the waste if you want to play somewhere else or take it on a go. i love this keyboard and planning to use it till i get my own piano, also the effects are great!
Summary: I've had this keyboard for a few months now. Some of the reviews I read warned about excessive battery drain and recommended getting a converter so you can plug the instrument into the wall. The converter I purchased failed after only a few uses. What's up with that!! The piano itself works fine. The sound is pretty good, although the built-in speakers don't have much volume. You'd need to attach an external amp and speakers to use it in a band.

Summary: Bought this for my 2 year old. I'm a professional musician and wanted a higher quality board for my son before I made a full piano purchase. This Yamaha is everything it says it is and is very sturdy. Many great features and the price cant be beat. My son has beat the tar out of this keyboard and there isn't the slightest sign of wear or malfunction.
Summary: It is a simple keyboard if you are looking for something to play on. It is light and portable. What I like about it: - portable and durable - grandpiano sound just like a grand piano - demo mode can play couples piano songs, which is very handy for quiet moments - light - simple keyboard- don't expect it to be your teacher What I don't like - i should have get the 72key since i come from piano background - demo songs and preset songs DON"T come with the music score.
Summary: This keyboard doesn't come with an adapter, sure. But does that mean it loses a star automatically? Not quite... There are approximately 375 sounds you can play with your keyboard (They range from "Piano" to other instruments such as "Guitar" and "Saxophone" and sound effects like "Machine Gun" and "Explosion") Some of the sounds sound like they were ripped out of an NES cartridge, feeling so outdated I wouldn't know why anyone would dare do such a thing.
Do not forget, this is a toy, no matter what manual or reviews say!

Summary: Pros: 1. Very good sound (musical samples) quality in the current price range. Competitors in same price range can not compare in sound quality with this. In fact, this $89 keyboard has comparable (if not better) sound quality of $199 keyboards (You want names, here's one - Casio CTK-6000). In fact, I've compared it to my ancient MU10 external XG synth from Yamaha - sounds pretty close. (And MU10XG costed about $800 back in mid 90s). 2.
Summary: I looked all over amazon,and I only found a few other keyboards cheaper than this one, which I decided not to buy for various reasons. I decided to buy this one to use until I get better, because I am only a beginner. It doesn't come with an adapter, but Amazon sells them for $11, so I bought one. It has every instrument you can think of, with many varieties of each one.
Summary: I love this keyboard. I have played around with it for a couple of days now and it's great! I did a lot of research to find a quality keyboard for less than $100. None of the ones I looked at came with an adapter, so that was a non-issue. I knew I would just have to purchase one. I got the Amazon "better together" or whatever they call it with the keyboard, stand, adapter, and headphones. GREAT deal!! This keyboard has a lot of fun sounds.
Summary: Big problem with this keyboard is that the keys are not velocity sensitive - this means everytime you even just softly touch (press) the key - it fires off the note at full volume. Very un-natural. Difficult to play anything musically expressive on this. I swapped it for the Yamaha E323 - much, much better! Hit the key softly and the note plays softly - the way it should be.
