I paid $142.99 at Kmart when it was first introduced in puerto rico.I tinkered with the internal synth chip to get a few more sounds not commonly avalable any other way.The hacked sounds were far nicer than the cheezy pcm sounds it had.the midi mode provided a 4 part multitimbral,8 note polyphonic tone gen.my hacked sounds were midi usable too.most black/gray casios of the 1980s were more suited to be hacked for inaccessable sounds via the pins of the internal synth chips.

Paid too much -- $80 from a pawn shop but I wanted something cheap that I could trigger from my drum machine. No manual. Lotsa sounds that have potential when used with effects. Example: nice pads from "flute" through a wah and delay program. Eerie "bell" patch with distortion sounds even weirder with autopanner. I wouldn't buy it again - certainly for that price but since I have it I'm enjoying it. It's midi so it fits right in with whatever else you're doing. The non-midi mode allows you to layer two sounds at once. 6 note polyphonic I think. 2 part multitimbral - 1 part is piano and the other is whatever button you press. Like any piece of crap you can be creative and get good results. It's reliable so I don't find it annoying or anything.

this thing is fun. it is little and cute. Iv played it on the street before with 6 AA batteries and it lasted days. the sounds on that song (da da da) that 80's song on the vw commercial, those little ticking sounds there on there!, some people want that little anolog box, but there on the mt-240 two.
super easy to use, even with midi you just switch the mode switch on midi and see what it does!
the viberophone sound is really exsilant for bass. on the keybourds speakers, you wont hear it but amplified it shakes any room. I use it via midi for some of my bass drum sounds. its huge and worth buying just for that.
its a fun, cheap, usfull little addision.

Hey, a $20 multitimbral MIDI keyboard... fun. Hacking this thing is a barrel o' laughs. It's even got 10 secret programs that you can get at through MIDI. The auto-power-off "feature" sucks, though.
