Keys feel a bit cheap, which is understandable, sensetivity is good but needs adjustment with software (it's easy and quick), keboard connected to my computer without any problems and my DAW works correctly with it. Good enough for me.

Home Recorder, 18.11.2018
I have been looking for a lot of midi keyboards that comes with more than 6 pads. My final decision was to buy this Alesis V49. At the beginning, I was quite worried because this product seemed like it has several problems. The two main problems that I saw in others' review are: 1. Squeaky noise made from the keys; 2. Double triggering of the drum pads.
For me, Problem 1 did not happen for me until now, even though I have been using this product for about two months, but I actually faced the second problem on the 7th and the 8th pads. It only happens when I don't press them strongly enough, however, it it really annoying in the point that it makes the sensitivity function useless.

Apart from the well-known problems, this midi keyboard is good within this price range. The keys are full-sized and heavy (not smooth at all, but keep in mind that this keyboard with 8 pads is 98 euros, which is relatively cheap). If I have to recommend a mastering keyboard within a budget of 100euros, I would recommend this product.

Pros:
1. It does its job.
2. The blue light from pads and switches are relaxing and eye candying.

Cons:
1. Some pads have double triggering issues.
2. The keys are not really smooth.

Learning tool

I use this product to learn to play starting from almost 0 experience.
The build quality is better then I was expecting. You do not need anything better for the beginning.

From the software side it is "plug and play" product so you don't need to install drivers, but... You need to know how to set up software so that you don't have any lag between playing and listening . I must say, this is not the problem because of this keyboard but you should have that in mind when you want to use MIDI controllers on PC.

Mostly good
18.06.2015
Two things about this keyboard I do not like. The drum pads are unresponsive and you can't play rolls on them. If you want to play a snare roll you have to assign two pads to the same note. Secondly there is no program change increment/decrement feature. The buttons can be made to send prog-change, but not increment it.

Those things aside, it's good. The action is on the heavy side, with more piano than synth feeling to the action. It's pretty and does not hog a lot of desk space.

The included software is very nice. Well, Ableton Live Lite, while nice is quite limited. The Xpand2 VST synth however is a full featured version, and has a lot of good useful sounds.

All in all good bang for the buck. If I lost this one, I'd buy another one.

Addition: The firmware released autumn 2015, improved the velocity and pad sensitivity significantly.
