Hey guys, I thought I'd share a story with you all. On my 16th birthday, my dad offered to buy me a keyboard (piano). I looked everywhere, talked to many people. Researched many different pieces of equipment. I ended up getting a psr-740. A very nice technological keyboard. MIDI floppy, lcd mixing station with tons of voices. It could also do Karaoke, and it can change your voice into different pitches to go along with the music. It was a nice $2500 keyboard. But! I regret buying it! Ultimately, I play piano on it. Mixing and stuff, while fun is not what I do best. If I were to have the choice to go back and choose a different piano I would of chose one that had a larger range and weighted keys. So, if you have the choice in the future,consider what you'll be doing on it- rather than what you COULD do on it.

I agree. Buy what you want it for not for what you might do with it later. I another good idea is to find out if someone you know has one and work with it before you buy your own so you know exactly what it is you really want and what you want out of your purchace.
