Value For Money : Excellent
I chose for the number of keys because I used to make melodies than to control groundwater, samples, etc ...
The price also motivated me in my choice.
There is a USB socket (if used with a computer keyboard is USB powered), taking "midi-out", a jack for a pedal, a 9V power supply socket when using wireless USB .

UTILIZATION

Touch is not bad for the price. It is light, but hey we made it.
The manual is simple (the keyboard is simple).
There is a "pitch bend", a "modulation" wheel, a slide volume, two buttons to raise and lower octave, and "advanced functions" button knob that must be used to change the midi signals from certain keys but I have not tried yet.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 years, I have not tried other models before except electric piano Yamaha.
I love the simplicity, lightness and the number of piano keys.
He clearly lacks some buttons to assign actions, it is a shame. The plastic is not very costal, attention to shocks.
The value for money is not bad, how all the M-audio gear that I bought.
If I had to buy one, I'll take one with more buttons to assign, even put € 50 more.
