    I confirms the opinion of Karlmuz, who bought this keyboard there 3 years, and still enjoying the same.
    I will not repeat the inventory is above its potential (see comment Karlmuz). Variety of very realistic sounds with effects that have nothing to envy to Roland (hull side a little cheap) and other Yamaha.
    Robust appearance, comes with its stand and sustain pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    The discovery of the product is of relatively intuitive on the touchpad.
    Possibility of recording his work, agreements, and play along while listening.
    The edition is intended for connoisseurs who find real opportunities for customization of sounds and styles. The addition of the SD card gives the product great potential for storage of sounds, styles, songs, ...
    Song-book
    Many styles to highly appreciated sounds, reviewed and improved trendy, with 4 levels for each arrangements (including Latino sounds, which have nothing to do with the available styles in the 80-90 years that we still find competition in these price ranges).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this keyboard using a staggering array of instruments for 3 years.
    I tried to touch keyboards heavy
    Roland: a little more flexible, and appearance of the device a bit cheap and flimsy (plastic)
    Yamaha: I feel the need to type it as a raw buttons to exit sounds. too tiring version heavy touch. I need a keyboard that I could play for hours without having to suffer the fingers and wrists. I trouvédans Korg Pa588 this.
    I like most: his opulent aspect, the variety of sounds and editing capabilities, the ability to put additional pieces for study or karaoke. Very good sound from the speakers, many styles revisited all very contemporary.
    I like least: its price. I paid the more expensive (but I do not remember the exact price) when he came out.
    But I do not regret my purchase. A pleasure that can not be denied. It deserves to be highlighted more. He did not tremble face Yamaha or Roland.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wanted to give my testimony because I find it unfortunate that no one did mention this superb arranger on this site.
    I hesitated between PA 500 and PA 588. Finally, I chose the PA 588 for his looks, his appearance "solid" and touch the piano. On these three points, there is no comparison, the 588 is well above. Otherwise it comes with a nice stand and a sustain pedal high quality, which does not spoil anything.

    I did that for two days but I am completely smitten. The sounds are beautiful and highly realistic style (note that sounds and styles are the same on the 500). Of course, I did run only 20 percent of its capacity.

    The touch keyboard is really the icing on the cake and touch screen provides unmatched ease.
    I would also mention the presence of what I call a "visual metronome" which helps to throw peeps if our ear is failing us!

    I find the value for money very good.

    It's great material that was really in the belly. I was looking primarily an arranger with accompaniments cool and realistic, and I'm ready! The guitars are sublime, you'd play in a band ...

    At my level, I do not see any negative points and I think I'll keep it very long ...
