Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes. It is plastic construction. But that does not mean it is made poorly. It is not. I have a plastic Casio that was made in the early 80's that has been gigged with regularly and has never had even one malfunction. The plastic makes this light. Which when lugging gear around all over the place...lightness becomes a very important feature. I have no reason to believe that I cannot expect the same dependability from the 7000 as I have gotten from my vintage Casios. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I myself am just crazy impressed with the drawbar organ feature. Just endless possibilities of tone! Also, the pattern and song sequencers are quite full featured and powerful. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? This board is easy to use in terms of just picking sounds and playing. The real depth however is indeed in those features that take some time and learning to master. But this is not a downside. It is one of the reasons this is such a nice board. It is so darn powerful. Sound How is the tone? Tone is amazing. Full range. Lows are warm..highs are smooth. The tone is really what ends up separating the professional level boards from the consumer level boards. Pricewise, the 7000 is right on the line between the two. Tone wise though...it is solidly in the pro-camp. Value Was this item an overall good value? If you are in the market for a consumer home keyboard to just tinker with...you will probably think this is an expensive keyboard. However, if you are a gigging/recording/writing musician...you will see it as a great bargain. I am in the latter group. Worth every penny.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well made for the price. It is NOT made of metal, but it is solid and well-designed. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? For me the classic organ sounds and drawbars, the pianos and strings and synths all in one box...very convenient! If I could make it "better" the organ drawbars would work like a real Hammond, with 0-7 increments, and there would be more control over the exact amount of distortion from the Leslie simulator, control over the amount of key click, etc. You could drop all the auto-arrange and built-in rhythms and have a fine portable organ! Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Pretty easy and intuitive, but there are so many features that there is a learning curve, but it's not bad at all. I had a lot of things worked out after a short session with the manual. Sound How is the tone? For what I wanted, a cheaper alternative to the Nord Electro, this is ideal. Lots of classic sounds and many others; however some of the orchestral and world instruments were not the best I've heard, but at least 200 of the 800 sounds are excellent! Value Was this item an overall good value? Best bang for the buck!
A Great Value.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The keyboard while being mainly plastic, appears to be very well made and solid yet still remains lightweight. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? No one feature stands out but being able to create your own custom rhythms and tones is a nice feature. Live recording for other instruments and audio is also a great feature. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? It is fairly easy to get started with the basics but the keyboard offers a lot more that the basics and has a bit of a learning curve. Sound How is the tone? Some of the tones are great but there are some that are quite poor. It's a mixed bag really. Value Was this item an overall good value? It's fantastic value, i can't imagine any keyboard offering more at such a low price.
