General What is your overall opinion of this product? Overall great keyboard. Not a lot of features, but then that's what this design was meant for, and exactly what I wanted. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It's light, and plastic, so if you're gigging with it, need a hardshell case. But as long as you don't drop it from above your head, you should be ok. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? Nothing to it, just plugged it in, and was ready to go. Didn't even need to run an install. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Very basic, which is what this is for. Not a bunch of stuff I'm not going to use. Full 88 keys, semi-weighted so it's easy on the arthritis. Perfect for synths and sample sets that use keyswtiches. Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? The keys feel good. Semi-weighted so it doesn't feel like a toy, but easy on the fingers after hours of playing. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? For $200 you can't beat it. I picked this up, along with Korg's NanoPad2 and NanoKontrol2 and for just over $300 I get an 88 key controller with all the bells and whistles of most $400 to $500 61 key controllers. I have enough USB ports but you may want to pick up a hub if you're doing this route.
Nice controller
