    Terrific sound quality

    This keyboard has little to envy from professional models. When it comes to piano and basic rhythms, you can go a long way. I bought this one as I was abroad and wanted a cheap keyboard that I can leave at my in-laws for occasional gigs, and it really did the trick, including when connected to a professional sound system. I might not use this for my paying gigs (except if it's mostly piano, as opposed to rhythmic pieces), as it does not have all the registration capabilities as the Tyros, but considering it costs 10% of the Tyros' price, it's well worth it. Plus it's super light, I could litterally lift it with a single finger!

    Terrific keyboard

    I wanted a super portable light keyboard with decent piano sounds
    and some drum kits to take to rehearsals and small gigs and this
    Yamaha fits that perfectly
    Very impressed how much they packed into this board for such a
    reasonable price
    Nice job Yamaha

    Child's Perfect First Keyboard

    I am writing a review because there are not many online reviews written for this Yamaha keyboard ; I bought one yesterday for an 8 yr old's Christmas. She is one of my piano students. I was looking for reasonably realistic piano sound, and wow does the Grand Piano sound satisfy. The keys are touch sensitive, real size, and reverberate with a realistic vibration through the fingers similar to how an acoustic piano would respond (as opposed to the dead plastic feel of many inexpensive keyboards). Fantastic gift for any musical child.

    The Yamaha PSR-E343 61-key Portable Arranger

    When I asked my sales rep at Sweetwater for a recommendation for a portable keyboard that would survive the airlines and a cruise ship I expected something very basic that was a notch above a toy. I was blown away by t the quality ,durability and the amazing arrangement capabilities of the Yamaha PSR-E343 61- for under $200.00. The only negative point to mention is that I spent more time rehearsing with my new keyboard than I did with my wife; not a good idea if you're on a cruise. Oops!

    Very poor

    This is a TOY keyboard. The grand piano sound is bad. It must be played through an amp to get sufficient volume. The touch sensitivity is not even between keys with some keys louder and some softer. I wanted to go back to playing keyboard and with a limited budget, I bought this. It was a mistake. Only recommended for children.
