I own a dr-5 and would like to state that it was worth what I paid for it. I bought it for $180 and it is worth every penny. It took me a while to figure it out at first, but after reading the manual all the way through, the machine was a breeze to use. I believe it does a very good job with it's layout and functions. I didn't expect this machine to give off state of the art sound, you shouldn't either. It is a simple machine with simple sounds, complex enough to allow you to bring your ideas to sound. I use mine for simple rock tunes so the drums and bass is what I really wanted to sound true. The Dr-5 pulled it off. I am real satisfied with this machined!

This thing is great. But i guess it depends on what you're looking for. I do more techno/industrial/electronic stuff and the drum sounds are adequate if that, most seem to be geared towards rock/blues/funk sort of stuff. But the few 808 and 909 sounds are invaluable, and all the sounds are tunable by pitch and decay. The pad/synth sounds are mostly really cheesy, but the synth bass sounds are ok and there's actually a damn good piano sound, you just need a midi keyboard to use it. the other great thing about it is the sequencer. easy as heck to use, very editable, invaluable for putting down ideas before recording them. in short its useful for just about anyone from any genre of music, but mostly as a scratchpad. it can be taken anywhere and for the price you can find it used (under 200 many places) don't pass one up if you happen upon it.
