I bought it due to its size.
I didn't have the space for a 49-key keyboard, besides, I'm not a pianist. But 25 keys is not enough. The 37-keys format is a good compromise.

The MIDI connection via USB is a good point given the built-in hub that I use to connect a launchpad mini, which works perfectly.

It's very light. It fits inside a bag. Responsive pitch wheel.

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is fairly good in the sense that you have a decent sensitivity. It's nothing spectacular, but with my level of piano it's ok. And the keys aren't that small. You won't hurt your hands playing chords ;)

I haven't read the manual, it's plug & play. Apparently it comes with a software bundle... I'll have to check that later.

OVERALL OPINION

I received it today. Time will tell.

I've had several synths, including the NL2X, which isn't well-known for its keyboard. I love the mellow side of this Korg Mini.

Pros: mini dimensions, 37 keys, responsive pitch wheel, quality ok
Cons: time will tell

For the price, it's a chance not to be missed.
