It is the best keyboard I have ever owned, keep in mind I’m only 14. It is a great size which makes it easy enough to transport, and there are more features than I know what to do with. I would heavily recommend this to anyone.

Some very good features, including an updated sound set with some nice Indian, Chinese, and Arabic sounds, USB audio recording, etc, BUT, a few finishing touches would have made it a keeper. The arpeggiator cannot layer with a normal dual voice. The arpeggiator only works on the bass sound if you split the keyboard. The sampler is pre-mapped on one patch only. The drums or Styles can't be re-voiced, or given different kits. These complaints are small if you're not fussy about programming. I would certainly recommend the keyboard for beginners, especially for the modest price.
