I bought this to get back into piano after several years of not playing. I did many grades when I was younger, mostly learning classical style music and eventually got out of the habit of playing after University. A few years on and I wanted to relearn playing by ear so I can accompany singing at parties etc. I didn't want to spend too much and I live in a small apartment so I wanted something that wouldn't take up too much space.

Having only played a real piano before, I was surprised how similar this is as I was concerned it would feel like playing a keyboard. Having gotten used to this, switching back to playing a real piano took about 10 minutes to get the swing of again. I usually use headphones to practise but it has a decent sound on its own too. This has been great for getting up to speed again but I suspect I'll want to upgrade in the next few years to a fully-weighted digital piano with a better sound. I really like the ability to connect it up to the computer, but I got bored with Skoove pretty quickly.

A couple of recommendations as I had to do a bit of work to find the accessories etc:
- I bought this stand and it fits fine https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000LUFTWS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_tYFCzb3BPDTBK
- You will probably want a sustain pedal, I got this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00IOEQQTS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
- You will need a converter if you want to use normal headphones with a 3mm jack; I got this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0086P5F4M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_h0FCzbK79V83M
- If you want to learn to play chords so you can accompany and play songs by ear (rather than reading music which, despite reaching grade 6, I was always rubbish at) then this book is awesome https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0571539025/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'll try keep my points concise and highlight the main aspects.
As an 88-key digital piano, it certainly is that, however, not without it's faults.
But first, the positives:
- relatively cheap
- full of adjustable features such as adjusting the touch responsiveness, transposing the keys, etc (See manual for more info)
- good for beginners

And that's about it.

The negatives by far outweigh the above:
- The piano is described as semi-weighted. This is not true. They do provide a (slightly) stronger resistance that you would fine from a toy/cheap keyboard, however, the keys have nowhere near weight to be considered semi-weighted.
- The key to a successful digital piano is for it to produce a similar auditory experience you find with a real acoustic grand piano. In the world of digital pianos, this is achieved by a process called sampling, where a real piano's sound is recorded onto the digital piano for replication. However, the replicated sound on the Alesis is not at all as a piano would sound. It's noticeably lacking in depth.
- The above point prompted me to test the sound through headphones instead of the built-in speakers. This only uncovered yet a deeper problem. There is a lot of feedback noise from the piano once the headphones are plugged in; there is an almost constant beeping.

Why you should buy this product?
If you're desperate to try an 88-key piano on a tight budget.

Why you shouldn't buy this product?
For it's price, you can find alternatives that would be more satisfying (I exchanged my Alesis for a Casio CDP-130 [88-keys, 48 note polyphony (edit: the Alesis has 128), fully-weighted, approx. same price, etc.])

I would strongly recommend staying clear from this digital piano as it is simply not up to standards it ought to be.

Good for the money, nice tone and uncomplicated to sort. Generously sized music stand. Imperative, however, to get a sustain pedal as sounds hollow without. Keys a bit on the light side as not weighted but all in all, a very satisfactory instrument for learning on or for amateur playing.

Barring the death march and the Jaws 'music' I can't play a note, but teenage daughter and her friends can knock out a tune and they say it's very good. Apparently a match for the much more expensive keyboards at school.

Good piano sound and key action, we got it to learn keyboard skills. Its simple and free of daft unnecessary play sounds and faddish features. I think its great.

Excellent if you are limited to space, good value for the money. Only downside, the adapter doesn't plug straight into a UK standard socket, you need a mans electric shaver style adapter ...........

Brilliant features for the money. Best value keyboard. Good weight in keys. Just by pure chance my nephew bought the same keyboard following his research. Highly recommended

Arrived nicely packed but unfortunately did not work, could have been adaptor or the unit, not sure but amazon were able to replace using Hermes courier within 48 hours. Very pleased and the new one be works fine.

Bit annoying that the advanced functions are a combination of two buttons plus certain keys but guess that’s to keep the aesthetics uncomplicated.
