Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This Casio is made very well. It stands well next to its competition. 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 this price..for Casio..This is a great machine with a load of tricks, bells and whistles in it. It has great sounds and nice 'manipulations' to them that you can make [sounds] your own. The feature I would add if I could, would be add 15 more keys to bump up from the 61-key..however, 61 isn't too bad :) 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's fairly easy to use. The manual is very helpful, although I am finding myself re-reading through it to make sure I understand the features completely. The manual, I thought, could be explained a little better. It points you to this page or that page in the middle of explaining a specific feature. The keyboard is very playable.. Once you learn and get a feel for what you can do and how to, it will become a breeze. Sound How is the tone? Sounds are GREAT! Especially from a Casio.. They really did their homework with this keyboard.. Bits and pieces from 'others' were brought back to the table while making this. Hundreds of sounds to choose from with addition to Layer up on sounds and create and edit your own tones. Very nice. General Your general opinion of this product. I was a little unsure about purchasing this keyboard. I research everything when I am interested in buying something especially something that will get my undivided use and time..I went to play this at my local music store and was blown away. I poured through the sounds and was amazed. I didn't fool with the features too much but just the feel and response from the board was a green light for me. It's exceptionally light to carry..Plug right in and go..Setup anywhere, w/ the battery powered option. It's a great board..a great investment and I'm glad I purchased this. My relative, and other musician buds, use Motifs' but I would confidently bring this into my session and hang right with them! Value Was this item an overall good value? Absolutely great value.
Versatile, Great Tones, Affordable Price

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's a light-weight keyboard. Most parts are plastic, but it seems to be put together well. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Very versatile and easy to use. The drawbar organ mode is really cool! The drawbars are adjustable so you can edit the tones. The Step Sequencer is a neat feature too. 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? Fairly simple and easy to use, but read the owner's manual. This is a well thought-out keyboard with some very cool features that cannot be found on most other keyboards in this price range. It takes a little time to figure out and discover some of these capabilities. Sound How is the tone? Overall, this is a great sounding board. The pianos, strings, brass and synth sounds are all very good and this keyboard has some of the best drawbar organ sounds I've heard. General Your general opinion of this product. Great keyboard! Very versatile and user friendly. It sounds great! I haven't found another keyboard in this price range that even comes close! Value Was this item an overall good value? Fantastic value! This keyboard has features that you won't find on any other keyboard in this price range and it sounds great!
Probably the coolest affordable Synth to come out in 10 years

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Casio I think did the best job they could without cutting back features. It glows in the dark, it's plastic, and the keys feel like any other keyboard. I mean what do you expect for this price "weighted keys". It's a good all around synthesizer/ workstaion / live board. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The sounds are great, it's not just a workstation it's a Synth you can alter sounds with and use as a stage board with great on-board sounds. 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 Casio is very user friendly and easy to use. Sound How is the tone? Sound are full and sound really good with many sounds and combinations of things you can do with all the sounds. Also has a nice arpeggiation. Value Was this item an overall good value? To me yes, I don't want to pay 3,000 dollars for a new keyboard that is a clone of all the other keyboards out today. To me Casio really stepped back and saw what is going on around them to craft an affordable keyboard with very robust features. Hopefully Casio will come out will many more cool Synths soon..
