I have a KORG PA 50 SD for 2 weeks and what a difference with the YAMAHA keyboards! Development possibilities are endless. (Accompaniment, sounds, styles, etc.).
Quality sounds and accompaniments is undeniably good for a keyboard from 2004.
While the grip is tricky and the manual seems complicated, but once you get used to the logic of Korg functions are very powerful.
Double track sequencer allows mixes, which is appreciable. Almost complete connectivity: it lacks the USB.

UTILIZATION

The manual is clear though seems complicated. On this point Yamaha is more user friendly. But ultimately I think the Korg PA 50 SD is a true professional arranger keyboard.

OVERALL OPINION

To summarize, the KORG PA 50 SD ought to be used to its full potential if only for the possibility of creating sounds and styles (accompaniments). For the novice Korg PA 50 SD may seem confusing but it will prove a safe bet quickly and will last through the ages.
What I like most about this model: the sound quality of the piano and organ and SD drive (SD card 2GB widely enough).
What I like least: lack of USB connectivity, loading MIDI files or styles not very interactive.
I would recommend this keyboard to intermediate players who want the power and scalability. Novices rather turn to Yamaha PSR keyboards such similar price more limited but easier to use and easier to understand until moving to PA 50 SD.
The price / quality ratio is very good.
Finally KORG community is a large community, like that of Yamaha, which may help.
