Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (39 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Write New Music Everyday!"
Sound: The on board patches are very tight. I can compose in any style, make a quick CD and now I have something concrete to give to the other musicians. Fast originality for sure! Feature: It is easy compose and write your music into a scripted format via the USB port. If you have musicians that mostly like to read instead of improvise, then just hand them your sheet music. Ease of Use: Because its functions are divided into sections, it is easy to mix styles and instrumentation until you get just what you want. Plus, when you run this machine through the mixer, the volume is controlled from the keyboard and it is easy to get a good balance blend with your vocal mics without going back and forth. Quality: I have a Casio watch that is twenty years old and looks and runs as good as the day I bought it. Every Casio product I have is excellent. Casio is the definition of quality control. Value: Yamaha PSR and YPG products are good too, but there is just more of everything, dollar to dollar on the Casio. Manufacturer Support: I am not expecting any problems. The Wow Factor: Everybody is blown away when I crank this baby up! They really like the space-age screen and metallic sheen and the 88 keys make it look real mean... Overall: This is the perfect product for right now. But, I know Casio will have another monster keyboard in the next two years with a mini-mixer that has a couple of mic chanels and built in CD/MP3 recorder. And of course I expect to see a full color touch screen for all functions. And I want it for about $500. I know it will happen!

"This Keyboard Is A Real Surprise!"
Sound: When I first used the keyboard's built in speakers they took me by surprise, I didn't think that they would have such a good range of high and low frequencys. The 2-way bass speakers make very nice bass without making it distorted (if the instrument sound you use is practical to go that low since this is an 88-key). Some instrumental sounds will just not sound as loud as they should be even if edited compared to others which is a little downfall. Feature: The stand is very supportive and fit's the keyboard look. It's not a stand ideal to bring around because of the way it's assembled, so if you do haul it (it's not heavy), it takes up room, best to get a folding one. The sustain pedal is very very light so it moves around a lot because of the cord's weight and shifts so it get's a little anoying. I love the fact this keyboard has a SD Card slot, it's one of the greatest things to have I would say. I love recording small things on it or putting MIDI files on it. Even if you don't have a way to transport a SD card to a computer or if you don't have an SD card still worth it. Since this keyboard also has built in speakers you could actually play it on the go (with the fact you can also use batteries as an alternative power source). Ease of Use: This keyboard had very many functions and dosen't require you to go through a ton of buttons and screens. One problem I have is that the manuel is very very blunt and dosen't go into much detail. It takes a while to adapt to but in the end worth it. Quality: What you see is what you get, looks great, and is built great. The keyboard does tend to scratch easily so do keep good care of it. So far no printing on it fades, and I was surprised this is a light keyboard with amazing feautures and sounds. Only downfall is watch your keys, they don't have any real problems but if a force pushes them up by accident you will notice it sometimes. Whenever the key will go back up sometimes it will make an anoying bounce shake if they have been a little moved. If you take good care of this product it will always satisfy you. Value: Absolutly worth it, this is an amazing keyboard, for the price I didn't think it would be this good. Anything better then this I would imagine is significanly better like Yamaha's Motifs. This keyboard, if I was to sell, should be worth more. Manufacturer Support: I've never had to contact them, I wish the warranty was a little longer but it's not bothersome. The Wow Factor: This keyboard is easy to play and use, the look of it dosen't really stand out, but the blue screen does make it look cool if you use it. If the wood panel was a nice blue panel instead it would look a lot better. It would be nicer if they had buttons to shift your instrument sound a little easier. The look of the keys you can't really beat. Overall: I'll keep this keyboard until I surpass what it can sastisfy me with, and even after that I would probably still keep it. WELL WORTH THE BUY and there's nothing that will irritate you about this keyboard.
