Value For Money : Excellent
The keyboard is very simple, it has some knobs, two modulation wheels and pads. The connection is via USB, no midi out. It's a 4-octave keyboard, and it's hard to get one for the price, so I bought it.

UTILIZATION

The keyboard itself is not an example of fidelity, but you get used to it pretty fast, it's not unpleasant at all.
The general setup is pretty easy and most of the time it's just plug & play with computer music software, there's no need to reassign the knobs, it's taken care of directly.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using this keyboard for about a year and I didn't try any others before. The particularity of this keyboard, its 49 keys, may discourage mobile users, but it is also perfect for a home studio. I think this is the first time I'm not disappointed with Behringer, it's perfect in terms of value for money, and if I ever have to get another one (at the same price point), it would be this one without a doubt.
FYI, Missill, the artist, uses one live!
