      Comments about Yamaha PSR E243 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

      This piano is a great example of the fantastic products that are available to beginning piano students at unbelievable prices. Featuring a wide array of sound samples and built-in song reproduction for teaching, this keyboard is the best bang for your buck under $200. However, it doesn't include some desirable features found on higher end keyboards such as weighted keys or a complete 88 key set, but at the price there is no reason not to pick one of these up for a beginning student at any stage.
      This is a real hands-on product review from Anthony @ Sam Ash Torrance.

            Comments about Yamaha PSR E243 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

            Great first keyboard. Price is really affordable and you get a ton of sounds- over 380 sounds and 100 styles. Built in speakers so there is no need for a separate amplifier but it can be amplified through the headphone jack if you want to. Can be operated by a power supply- sold separately- or by batteries so you can take it just about anywhere. It has a learning program built in so it is a great choice for the first time player, but you can keep it around for a while because it can also work as a MIDI controller. Great value. This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.

              This keyboard is great for anyone learning to play! It has a good sound and is lightweight, and portable! If you don't want to invest too much into your child while they're learning to play, this is a great deal! Anything Yamaha makes is always high quality and has a good tone!

                  I couldn't ask for a better instrument. Great sound with many options. Excited about learning to play the piano and using this keyboard with its grand piano effects. Portability allows me to carry with ease when traveling.
                  Wonderful learning tool!

                          What a great beginner keyboard! All the sounds you need to get started playing right away!!! The price is kind of hard to beat too!!
                          But Yamaha know what they are doing when it comes to keyboards and this one is no exception!

                            385 voices and 100 Styles for $100? What else could you ask for?

                            This keyboard is fantastic if your kid(s) are just getting into the piano! This keyboard includes a built in Yamaha Education system. This allows students to teach themselves piano as well play along with different accompaniment styles.

                            Another cool feature is If you have an iPad it can also be connected to this piano via a USB cable.

                            Not much else to say, for the price this is a great quality keyboard.

                              This keyboard is great for the beginner on a budget. Still packed with a bunch of great sounds, this easy to use keyboard makes for a great gift for anyone looking to start, but isn't too sure how much they want to play. The keys are good and the product sounds great.
