Customer Reviews

Excellent Keyboard for the Price5 Don't let the fact that this machine is an "entry-level keyboard" hinder you from purchasing it. It can be played and enjoyed by beginners and advanced players alike. As stated in my previous reviews, I have owned many Yamaha and Casio keyboards in the past 25 years or so. This is the best portable I've owned yet and I can't wait to take it out on a gig in late August. The piano sounds very much like the higher-end digital pianos for which Yamaha is known. Many of the voices and features on this board are ones found in my Yamaha DGX-500. The only minor complaint I have is that the volume level could have been increased a little. But one can compensate by using an amplifier or speaker if necessary. I was quite impressed with the wonderfully orchestrated built-in songs. One can listen to them for pure enjoyment or learn to play them using the lessons built into the instrument. Personally, I don't use the lesson feature, but it's there for those who want it. In summary, if you want an affordable, lightweight keyboard to tote around, this is definitely the one to buy. The sound quality is very good for a keyboard in this price range. You won't feel as if you're playing a toy when you perform, and there are really neat intros and endings to enhance your performances. They are the same ones found on the better Yamaha instruments. This is not always true with the Casio instruments. Another thing, when I purchased this keyboard from Musician's Friend, since Amazon.com didn't have it as yet, I had to buy the adapter separately. This shouldn't be. There weren't even any batteries with it. How is one to play it after getting it out of the box? It would stand to reason that there should be at least one type of power supply included in the box. Fortunately, I knew enough to read the full description and bought the adapter along with the instrument and got them both delivered on the same day, thank goodness. Buy this great keyboard. I know you'll be very happy with it.
