A genuine bargain. The weighting and wheels all feel very nice, especially considering how much they ask.

Yep, that's good one.

Unless you are a piano player and really want hammer-action keys, Then look at the Keystation Pro model, but at a fair whack more cash.

Ya that's a good un'

I prefer a smaller Midi Keyboard so that it fits snuggly on my workstation. Also, I like my MIDI controller to have knobs and sliders so I can assign them to the software. This (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Oxygen8-main.html) is the one I use. The one you're going to get will be better for piano playing because you won't need to push a button to go up or down in octaves.

Thanks guys, when i got to the apple store they actually had another one with 49 keys, for only $99, compared to the one with 68 keys for $169. I liked it because it was much smaller, perfect for my desk. Again, thanks for the feedback guys.
