Ok for first small midi keyboard
Yarik, 15.04.2020
I needed some midi keys to input some scores and play some synth in DAW. I checked reviews and decided to pick this popular model.
Well... I didn't use it much since it arrived.
Pros:
- Cheap
- Some built-in sounds
- Batteries or usb power

Cons:
- Keys.. They demotivated me to use it..
- Sound quality.

Summary: Price speaks! If you want portable keys to quickly get things done - it maybe your choice.
If you are looking for good companion that will inspire you to create/play - I would look at a bit pricier options with good keys.

Great value for the money
random_hero87, 15.11.2018
I bought this just to play around with at home. It's really fun and it's great that it can be used standalone. I've run it through my loop pedal with my guitar and you can make some great backing tracks with it. Being able to run it on batteries is another great feature however the built in speaker is a bit lacking but that doesn't bother me as I'm either using it with headphones or through an amp. I would definitely recommend it.

Nice little keyboard
DelBoy99 , 20.04.2021
As a guitarist I was looking for something to add sounds and textures to my recordings. This has some nice features, a few decent built in sounds and the drum pads sound good.
As a truly stand alone unit its not perfect. The built in speaker sounds terrible, really terrible!
Plug in some headphones and the sound is greatly improved.
I also run it through my guitar pedals and looper for much better performance and through an amplifer its good.
Battery powered so its nice and portable or can run on USB cable supplied.
Havent run it through any DAW system and you need to spend a bit of time with it to get the most out of all the features.
Overall very happy with it and pricewise I have no comlaints.
