Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent quality and very dependable as well as durable! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Features are great. The sequencer is not very user friendly nor is it convenient on the way it saves the files. It seems as though they should have added a small on board hard drive or a usb slot for saving to a hard drive. 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 was not a very easy keyboard to figure out. The manual is okay but there is a 3rd party company that offers great information for an extra $20ish dollars. Sound How is the tone? The tone and sound is amazing! You have to do a little tweaking out of the box but once you get it established, you are good to go! Value Was this item an overall good value? You can't get a better deal for the price!
This is the keyboard I have been looking for.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It seems very high quality, not surprising for something this expensive though ;) Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Again, not a professional musician, but I like how easy it is to get arpeggios, drum tracks, and multi-instruments up and running. 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? Well, it's very easy to just turn on and start playing. However, I'm not yet convinced that the software is as well-designed as it could be, but I'm not a music professional, either, so it probably seems more complicated to me. Overall, the learning curve has been pretty low for me. I've watched a few tutorials, and I always say the sign of good design is not your initial impressions of the functionality, but how well you can remember how to use a thing. If it's easy to remember how to accomplish tasks, then that's good design for complex software. I wish the sequencer was a little easier to use but that's probably asking a bit much. Some things are better off being taken to external devices. Sound How is the tone? Sounds great. I wish the output to the headphones could be a little louder, though. My ears can tolerate full volume, which should not be the case IMO. But that may be partly due to the headphones I'm using also. Value Was this item an overall good value? Yes, I think so, as a hobbyist musician, I can't imagine ever needing another keyboard after this. Love it.
Great keyboard, lots of features!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Looks like it will last a lifetime. Well-made, sturdy. Surprisingly light, but the 88's size does make it a bit unwieldy! Will probably purchase a rolling case for it. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Tons of sounds, and good ones at that. Still haven't explored them all. Plenty of keyboard, organ, guitar, synths, and beats to jam with, 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? Easy to work with right out of the box. Haven't checked out the manual yet to look at more features, but you can get the hang of what you need it to do by trial and error Sound How is the tone? Value Was this item an overall good value? The rebate definitely makes it worth your money.
