Keyboard action is really a matter of personal taste. some people really love Yamaha P series, so do I. some like Roland F series, but i really hate it. Some like Triton or Alesis type, but not me. for me Roland action on RD600 is very good, reminds me of a grand piano! not extremely heavy or light. just nice. just like a grand. the sounds, though not ultra 100% realistic, but i would say, 95%, PLUS, GOOD QUALITY DACs and outputs ! a really professional piece of gear. The other sounds, are top notch. i love it

Great keyboard. I've owned one for 4 years. There are now better piano samples out there, and after years on the rd600, I find the action to be way too light. Overall it's a great board though and its served me very well.

I broke a key a year ago, got it repaired and it just broke again. Any similar experiences?

I moved up from the RD300 to a RD600 about two years ago. I use the piano both in my personal studio and live in a variety of performance venues. Being a both a gospel, country, and jazz pianist I have come to appreciate the versatility of this instrument. The additional on-board sounds are passable however; I feel Roland should have allowed room for the installation of modules like in the A90. Nevertheless, the RD600 is a superb instrument and is at the top of its class.

I played (and still use occasionally) the old RD300 which gave me years of trouble free use. The RD600 is a very worthy successor - the piano sounds are fantastic, although you need to be careful with EQ when playing live, and cheap speakers will not do it justice.

The keyboard action is fantastic(if you've been brought up on conventional pianos) and I use the RD600 to play my synths as well. Those players have broken keys must really be punishing them - set the touch to 'light' and you only need a gentle touch, set to 'medium and you have enormous control over the expression, set to 'heavy' and you probably need to be quite heavy handed - there's enough variety to suit any player.

Criticism? When will Roland illuminate the buttons on their keyboards so that you can see the numbers on a darkened stage?!! The Clavi sounds are pretty horrible campared to teh lovely warm, funky clavi on the RD300. The display could be bigger (like the Korg SG Pro).

As a stage piano the RD600 take some beating!
