mmmhhh... I bought it three months ago. I owned several keyboards (Roland, Alesis, Yamaha, Korg). Well, I'm not completely satisfied, sounds are quite good but keys are low - quality and, as far as I'm concerned, Roland samples are much better, more expressive and this kind of display is not very user friendly... ok, it doesn't cost too much but comparing it with other same-level products I'm sure you can find better (QS6.1, for example or XP 30). Yamaha could do better....

This is a real MID-RANGE keyboard. so don't expect it to match even the old 01/W or SY85.

I bought it 6 months ago. The sounds are really great, and the fact that you can modify them makes it imposible not the find the sound you are looking for. Very pratical for live playing since you can separate the keyboard for up to 16 sounds, either 2 sounds x 8 places, or else. For MIDI and sequencer you need to use your computer with the CD they give you. I always played with Yamaha, and this one is great also.

I have had the synth for about a month and love the sounds this thing can make. I don't know what half of the stuff in the manual means but as a guitar player with minimal keyboard background I have been able to find some cool new things to play with just about every time I sit down. With a midiman adapted to my computer I'm able to download Drum samples in MIDI form and play them through tge S30. Very simple to do once you figure out the software that comes with the S30. The only downfall is not having a built in sequencer. For the price you realy cant beat the sounds and flexability to upgrade. I wanted to buy the S80 to have 88 weighted keys but considering it's about $300 cheeper for 61 keys I couldn't pass it by. Very pleased with my purchase.
