    This is not an expensive keyboard, so you know you are not getting a digital piano replacement, right? It’s keys don’t feel or behave just like a piano, and sound quality is very good, but not through the roof.

    That said, I’m really glad this came out! It’s a budget keyboard with features more directed to actual practice and playing than having a million different rhythms and voices, or having built in piano lessons. It has a decent piano sound and nice touch-sensitive keys. It’s very compact, and not very loud. I used to play classical piano growing up, and now mostly play other music, but wanted something to work on chords with, and to play for fun.

    It’s deceptively simple, but does have some interesting effects (for example you can change the tuning from A=440). Read the manual!

    I think it would be great for small apartments or dorm room practice, as a super portable keyboard, or if you (like me) have a very limited budget and want your funds to go to features like sound quality and keys rather than a ton of rhythms and voices. I think it would also be loud enough for classroom use but I’m not sure.

    I bought this keyboard for myself to practice at home. At first I kinda hesitant to get it but people seemed to like this keyboard very much because it’s lightweight and very portable. I decided to get it anyway after my friends tell me it’s a great buy!

    I got the package 2 days after I ordered it because I am an Amazon prime member. Instantly, after I opened the package, I am in love with the keyboard! It is super sleek and pretty! I love the piano sound and the actual keys. It responses to my touch (if I press it firmly, it’s louder).

    Another thing I like is it has the basic voices that I need, but it also has this “variation” button that adds a little funky little tweak to the voice. I love the variation electric piano sounds; it is amazing!

    Overall, I am really happy I bought this! I haven’t connected it to an amp, but I bet the sound will be as amazing! Don’t forget to get the AC adapter cord and sustain pedal! And of course a keyboard stand. The package only includes the keyboard and a music stand that can be attached to the keyboard.

    I’m an adult beginning piano student and wanted a small keyboard that would allow me to practice while away from home on trips by car.

    First disappointment with this unit was discovering that the keys are a bit smaller than full-sized piano keys. The description says piano-style keys, which I took to mean full-size, so I found that a little misleading. Had I known the keys were smaller I would not have purchased it. Learning to play has so much to do with muscle memory, it just seems like a bad idea to practice on smaller keys.

    On the upside, the soft-touch is nice, and impressive at this price point, though they are a little clacky but, again, considering the price (I paid $148) I found the clackiness to be acceptable. The fact that it runs on batteries is very cool in a portable. FYI, it does not come with an adapter, if desired it would need to be purchased separately. The light weight is also terrific.

    So I left on a little trip with it, was dutifully practicing away, and discovered that there were several keys that made a weird and unpleasant sound. It was an electronic sound, so one might surmise that it was not the keys themselves that were defective but something in the brain of the thing. One does expect better quality control from Yamaha.

    But it’s Amazon, you know, so it was a zero risk purchase that is very little hassle to return, though it is enough of a hassle that I won’t bother reordering. In all fairness, if my particular unit hadn’t been defective I would have given it 3 stars. If this unit (worked, and) had full-size keys (sorry to keep harping on that, but I can’t hep myself!) I’d give it a rockin’ 4 stars (for the price).

    So if the key size isn’t an issue for you, and if you have better luck with the quality of the specific unit you receive, then for what you’re spending you might really dig this little guy (in this, it sucks to be me!).
