I feel the X5 is an untouchable synth, expecially if your looking for that post-keyboard quality. This keyboard marks emblem of "WICKED STRINGS" and still by far the best I've heard. The X5 @ $750.00 can. is still a good buy, but as we all know KORG rules in the synth area. So if your looking for that basic...easy switched on SYNTH..place your 10 on the X5, the on board processor's are a "KILLER" and some of the percussion effects are nice as well. CHEERS

I bought my X5 from Ebay for around three bills and it came with the manual, a canvas bag and a footswitch. I already have an X2 so I really enjoyed the fact that it's basic setup is exactly like the X2 without the sequencer. What I like about it, compared to my X2, is its portability. In the bag, it's light as a feather on my shoulder and all the accessories I need can fit right in the bag pockets. I keep it in the bag normally and if I get the opportunity to go play with someone on short notice, it's always ready to go. What I don't like are some of the piano sounds (especially the A01 patch), which are not nearly as acoustic as the ones on the X2. I bought this as a portable alternative to the X2 and, considering what I paid, I'm ecstatic about it.

At the time of realese it was a bit expensive at £799 but I stil got one anyway, as I was totaly astounded by the big phat sounds it produced. The piano is much to be desired but I felt it matched well with the feel of the keyboard keys and responce. It would have been nice to have a resonance parameter to adjust, but cuttoff frequency was avalible. The strings was and still is the best Iv heard, and as well as the Combi phatt sounds makes this worth evey penny.

If you are breaking away from a home keyboard or wish to expand your setup you cant go wrong by getting a Korg X5 reflecting its very low current price and sound quality.

I have a lot of experience with synths around this price and Korg have put a lot of effort into this one. Bottom of the range it may be but it still sounds nice and the keyboard has a good feel. So much so that I will keep this synth and buy a new sound module rather than update the synth itself.

I've been pretty happy with my Korg X5..It's great for live performance or sequencing..and it has done me fairly well as my primary workhorse..Once you get past the beginner stages and really want to sound phat, it's a little limiting...I agree with everyone else, yes the piano sucks and the strings sound right out of enya. To the contrary of my other fellow users, I kind of dig the on-board effects processer, and some of the drum sounds I even like better than many of my drum modules...If you're a begginner make the purchase..if you're a veteran..look elsewhere.
