I really love this machine. Before i go to bed, i caress it and tell it "good-night" hahha(no seriously.) I dont ever see me getting rid of it (and this is comming from a man who had to sell 3 guitars, an amp, a microKORG, an ELECTRIBE, and a whole rack of effects to purchase a fantomX which, is totally useless to me now that the G is here. Sorry Roland but it's the truth!) If something happened to mine there is no doubt i would go out and get another one A.S.A.P.
Sound
I see alot of post about the pianos on this workstation being "weaker" or "worse" than what's in the X6. I own them both and i can tell you that they are definately BETTER than the keys in the X6!
Features
It seems like Roland put every feature that folks wanted directly from the "X" series customer feedback sessions(and even some of the "MV" sessions too) into the Gs. every one of the features on this board is designed to have you making high quality music straight away. i think the most useful feature is the USB mouse connectivity combined with the sampler. in song and sample edit mode(and any mode really) it is soooooo helpful without being intrusive, in other words it works just like your mind's eye thinks it would!
Ease of Use
im not kidding, when i first started using the G7 i was i little worried that it wasnt worth what i paid for it BUT,within 5 mins i was giggling like a pre-teen schoolgirl! Everything i hoped this machine would be able to do it did and waaaaay more!!! everything is laid out just where you think it should be and better yet, every button and function does exactly what you think it will do. it is truly "dummy" proof.
Quality
No product is perfect for one reason or the other. The only knock (if you can call it that) on here is when you really get into the keys they can get i little loud.but it not any louder than what the X6 is so.... There is one thing that needs to be addresed somehow is the USB storage compatibility. just any ole' USB thumbdrive wont always work as advertised so, do your research before your put a few hours of heart and soul onto a thumbdrive that is not compleatly compatible with this machine. mabey later OS upgrade will fix this, til' then pay attention to your choice of USBs.
Value
everyone had heard the old addage "you get what you pay for." well here it really is true!!! it's pricey, yes. but worth it? Oh Hell yes!!. anyone sittin'on the fence trying to decide between the fantomG and any similar workstation because of the price of it listen closely: Do yourself a favor save,borrow,trade,steal sell old equipment whatever and get the fantomG. You will NOT be dissapointed!!!
