Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Incredible Hulk would have difficulty inflicting any damage to this board. It's built like a tank and performs like a ferrari. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Sound quality would have to be first on my list and, after all, isn't that the bottom line for any musical instrument?.. Other features include: FOUR full-featured arpeggiators, 16 samples/voice, expanded articulation, the list goes on... 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? The user interface is second to none. Category search and the 'favorites' feature make it a breeze to find the sounds you are looking for. I am especially grateful to Yamaha for choosing to NOT incorporate a touchscreen display - they are fine if your index finger is shaped like a stylus and your skin has no natural oils.. forget about it.. Sound How is the tone? As I mentioned before, the quality of sound from the XF is second to none. I have owned them all, the Korgs and Rolands and others, and most do an acceptable job of reproducing synth and bass; however, when it comes to horns, strings and especially guitar emulation, Yamaha is far superior to anything else on the market. General Your general opinion of this product. Simply put, the Yamaha XF is by far the best board available. Value Was this item an overall good value? Compared to other keyboards in the same price range (or, for that matter, ANY price range), your hard-earned money will be well spent and, for that matter, it will be many years (if ever) before you feel the need to purchase a different instrument.
If you're looking for a great keyboard, this is it!

Great tones, and you could spend days previewing them all! Value Was this item an overall good value? Great value, especially with the limited-time rebate offer for an additional $800 worth of stuff for free.
