-metal parts connecting to the keyboard
-fits in the case perfectly, nothing sharp is pointing out
I had a nord stage with its stand for years, in comparison, the nord stage seems sturdier, and is a bit wider. However, the nord stand didnt fit well in the case, pointy ends led to some damage in the case, and it is also more expensive.
Does the job, its handy if you have case, but nothing special, i wouldnt be so sure if i had a thick songbook on it.
