    Saving space

    Bought for my children who are taking piano lessons and had no space for a full size piano. They love it!

    Excellent bang for the buck keyboard

    I've owned several keyboards over the last 30 years from cheap home units to high end Korg synth's. I'm using this as a home keyboard for writing and simple playing pleasure and not for gig's.

    I'm really pleased with the accurate piano, electric piano, and organ models the SP-280 covers. The keyboard feel is very good, if a slight bit sluggish on key rebound. Overall quality is excellent, especially for the price range. I have demo'ed several Yamaha's in this range but the Korg edges them out with a better keyboard action and more accurate modeling. The SP-280 doesn't have 600+ patches, but it does a superior job on what it has. The on board speakers are surprisingly loud and produce fairly clean, useful tones. Their low end range is a bit weak for an 88 key, but outputting in addition to them into a bass or keyboard amp makes it gig-able.

    As for the first reviewer's complaints about not having any "decent dynamic control when playing quietly", they should have read the manual. By simply holding the Touch key and pressing the Up value key once, you increase the key sensitivity above default levels dramatically. You just need to remember to do this each time you power up.

    Great Keyboard

    This keyboard has good sound for being a keyboard. of course, playing it, it doesn't sound at all as good as my real acoustic piano. the sound is not bad, but it's also not super good. still, very good purchase, looks great in white. I love the free pedal and stand...very sturdy stand and not all that hard to assemble.

    Korg keyboard

    I really likes the sound options, key action was also good. The sound was not enouogh for the size of the church, but connected to the sound system made a grea t difference.

    Very nice keyboard

    I bought this to teach myself how to play. I can play a little, took lessons years ago but forgot most everything. Some of it coming back as I sit and play more. The ease of playing and the sound is great. I have a real piano, Baldwin upright, but this Korg is just what I wanted for the different sound capability and features it offers. I have owned inexpensive smaller keyboards but they don't come close to this sound.
