      Comments about Yamaha PSR E343 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

      This is a great little keyboard and the only one in its price range to offer velocity sensitive, or "touch sensitive" keys. Leave it to Yamaha to build such an inexpensive, yet gorgeous sounding keyboard. There is learing software included to help you teach yourself how to play. There is also and AUX in so you can play along with your own music on your iPod or smartphone, just in case all the other sounds and built-in music isn't enough. There is also a USB port and an optional Apple USB interface that will allow you to record your own music on you Apple device. If you just need an inexpensive controller, this can do that too. So much from a little package!

          Comments about Yamaha PSR E343 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

          The Yamaha PSRE 343 is a great keyboard for the beginning piano player. It is light weight, inexpensive, and easy to use. It has plenty of voices, songs, and rhythms to choose from.
          The negatives of this product is that it has a rather toy-esque sound to the voices (as most beginner keyboards do). Unfortunately, the 343 does not come with a power supply (it can be run on batteries, however) nor does it come with a sustain pedal (which is not necessarily vital for the beginning player).
          Despite these downsides, this is still a keyboard that I recommend highly for the beginning student and Yamaha has a long history of making quality products that stand the test of time.

              Comments about Yamaha PSR E343 61 Key Personal Keyboard:

              The Yamaha PSR E343 is a great beginner piano keyboard. It doesn't have weighted keys like a real piano, but that's ok for someone young or on a tight budget. Some awesome things about it is that it has a built in metronome which is essential for anyone learning to play. It also has 136 rhythms that you can play along to with 550 different suonds. That's a total of over 70,000 combinations. And if you wanted to play late at night, you can plug in some headphones and enjoy a night of music making.

                Comes loaded with tons of sounds and songs to play along to. The 61 full size keys are very comfortable and easy to play even for children with small hands. The built in speakers sound great and are true stereo. The USB input is perfect for plugging your phone or MP3 player into, so you can even play along with your own favorite songs! This keyboard can also function as an inexpensive alternative MIDI controller as well. Very light and compact so if you need to carry it to school or lessons, it won't be a burden.

                  Couldn't believe how pretty the piano sounded.
                  The touch sensitivity and velocity did it for me as this is the least expensive keyboard that gives you loud and soft dynamics which is a must!
