My fingers are pleased!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The padKontrol sits nicely on my computer desk. The hard plastic shell seems very sturdy and solid. The pads has a smooth rubbery feel -- my fingers are pleased!
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I bought the padKontrol for the 16 pads, flam and roll features. I haven't had any issues using any of them. The only thing I would add is the power supply. Don't make it optional. Have it in the box then it's optional for anyone to use it.
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?
I have yet to use other features besides flam and roll. So far, it's pretty straight-forward. I was having issues with the editor not recognizing the padKontrol. But I'm only going to use the padKontrol via AC adapter (separate purchase) and use it to control my Roland sound module which has been working like a champ.
How is the tone?
It's a controller. It has no sound. Unless you're thinking about the actual thump sound it makes when you bang on the pads.
Was this item an overall good value?
I'm glad I've decided to buy the padKontrol. I truly enjoy doing drum parts and even synth parts using just the padKontrol.
