I have had this keyboard for four years and although it is reliable, the sounds are awful when compared with other newer keyboards. It holds its own when age is considered and it would be a good buy for a new or middling learner but it isn't for anyone advanced.

I don't care what anyone says: for it's price, this was the most versatile, creatice machine one could ask for!! The sounds were decent, and with the built-in reverb they were very usable. And you could modify the reverb depth seperately on EVERY SINGLE PART!! this also means the different parts of the arranger (which has 7 tracks!!) It has a built-in sequencer which let you record and play 5 tracks in addition to the arranger. Mind you, we're talking about 1993! At this time, nothing even could come close to this piece of equipment. What I really liked about it was the fact that you could fully program the arranger (all tracks, all segments), and that it was as easy as hell! Forget about the psr-620, THIS was the keyboard that set the standards for the bang-for-buck race which has gone on ever since. If you can get your hands on it (it's being selled for less than $100,-) don't hesitate! Because, before all the features, this a really FUN board to play with!

The PSR 400 is a perfect intro keyboard. The beautiful sounds and touch sensitivity give a very professional feel to the instrument. Very easy to use and customize, the 400 kept me busy for close to 6 years without me thinking about upgrading to a new machine.

The lack of a disk drive is inconvenient when it comes to saving recorded songs or settings, but most starting keyboardists wont really need or miss it and professionals would consider the PSR a reliable secondary keyboard.

All in all is a nice machine for its price and its features make it a very explorable instrument for anyone.

This is a simple keyboard geared towards casual home use and simple lounge-type performances but don't get me wrong, it certainly has it's place. It has 100 sounds and almost as many rhythms. It also has recording (internal sequencing) ability as well so you can simply get down an idea. The sequencing even allows you some layering.

The sounds are reasonable, the low end rather nice. With some effects and/or layering it even can be quite nice in a pro rig, I use it a good bit. Furthermore, it does have a distinctive sound in its own right.
