Couldn't ask for a better product, great price
harm-xx, 18.02.2019
I want to start learning piano and after months of research, this was the best option I found for this price range.
Pros:
- I've never used an accoustic piano so I can't compare and get into technical details but I can say it is a quality material, the keys feel great.
- 88 keys
- A lot of features
- Great price

Cons:
In terms of functionality of the item I have no complaints. These are a few small problems that I had...
- The USB cable is very short, I had to buy a USB extension cable.
- I can't connect it to my iPad. I bought an "apple connection kit" only for this purpose but it won't work. The piano lights turn on but there is no sign of it in the iPad.
- Had some difficulties setting it up on PC and a delay problem with a few programs like Synthesia, but with Bitwig (the software that comes with the piano) it works very well.
- It's light but it takes a lot of space.
- Customer support snubbed me twice, and I only had simple questions. Although it must be said, in shipping and handling, everything was correct. But for advice or information they really don't seem to care much.
- Keep in mind that you only get the keyboard and a short USB cable. I had to separately buy a pedal, piano stand, dust cover, and USB extension cable. My advice would be to buy the accessories at the same time. In time they really become necessary.
That's about it, the product itself is very good. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. I hope this was helpful.
Good luck!

Amazingly cheap yet packed with features
dm34987, 30.04.2019
I bought it as a replacement for my M-audio Oxygen88 (which is probably the biggest MIDI keyboard ever), so I would be able to fit it in a retractable shelf under my studio desk. The keyboard has a small footprint and it's very convenient to store under the desk.

The action of the keys is much better than one would expect from this price range, I have no trouble playing dynamic piano parts, though weighted keys do make a difference. But if you are a media composer as I am, you'll find these keys perfectly good enough for 99% of your work (unless you are Shostakovich, in that case, good luck)

The DAW integration seemed complicated at first, but once you get a grip of it, it speeds up your workflow. I still use mouse and keyboard a lot, but find all these additional transport keys and controls very handy, especially when I'm auditioning the mix and want to do some quick level changes.

The biggest surprise was the pad area, and the way pads are assigned and programmed. It's very easy to lay out your drums over 8 coloured pads, and I find myself using pads all the time when creating drums.

In two words, "best buy"

A good instrument for both pianists and sound engineers
richardklima, 26.12.2018
I use this at home as my 88-key keyboard as well as a controller for my DAWs. For a classical pianist, it may not be satysfying but I'm fine with the feel of the keys. Even melodic piano pieces can be played with proper dynamics. Multiple faders, knobs and buttons can be assigned in any way you want for controlling your VST instrument or DAW.
And there's another advantage. When it was delivered to me, I was shocked by just how light it is! You can just take it under your arm and go.

Nice and Effective
03.01.2017
I'm a sound designer, not a real keyboardist, so had no real need to weighted keys at all, but I needed a midi controller that seamlessly interact with all DAWs and softwares I use (many, due to my job) when I'm playing and programming, without any annoying issues: here it is.
The only thing you should take care is to switch it off and on, only once!, to make it recognize the polarity of your sustain pedal, then you're done.
It's very easy to switch from different velocity response profiles, that are suitable for all needs.
It works well, flawflessly, for the money spent it's a real good device
