I really like the psr e203 a lot, it is a great arranger keyboard. It is made for a beginner and you can learn to play the keys with this board. there are so many cool features with this board you will be surprised, but I will say its not up to date with sounds and ready for today’s music. that’s why I feel its more a beginner board.
The configuration was very simple, like I said its for beginners I bought this as a gift a few years back and its still being used a lot today. Even if you have no knowledge at all about keyboards you can get up and running with this thing.
The most cool feature for those who wish to learn music is that as you play the notes, they are displayed on treble and bass clef staffs on the display along with the chord being played. This is really great! The learning modes step you through left hand play, chords and melodies. Also, the keyboard can be connected to a computer and interfaced with software. The built-in track recorder allows you to record different instrument parts in time and play them back.
For the price point, purpose and intended market, this is an excellent, wonderful instrument. My Mom has been playing three hours a day and just loves it. It's the perfect gift for her and that makes me really very happy with this purchase.
Overall, it doesn't come with an A/C adapter or USB cable. Instead, Yamaha offers the "survival kit". However, I think these are two basic accessories that should be included. I also think the 5w speakers need to be beefed up a little bit. They were a little quiet for some sounds, though they are intended for practice and not performance and the headphones sound good. but i suggest giving this keyboard a shot if you are beginning to play.
The Yamaha PSR-E203 is a digital keyboard with built in speakers that is designed for beginners and those interested in getting their feet wet with digital keyboards but don’t want to spend too much money at all. The keyboard of the Yamaha PSR-E203 spans about four and a half octaves and has ¼ inch output connections for sustain as well as to send the signal to another speaker or wherever else you’d like to send it.
The configuration of the Yamaha PSR-E203 is incredibly simple to follow, as it is designed for beginners who have no prior knowledge about keyboards. While there are a lot of handy features in addition to the wide array of tones, including demo songs, a nice screen that shows you which keys are being played on the keyboard in music notation, and a great sounding reverb effect. Whether you know what you are doing or not, figuring out the Yamaha PSR-E203 won’t take long if you play around with it for a little while. The manual for the Yamaha PSR-E203 seems complete and thorough, but I never used it too much because the keyboard is easy enough to use that I never needed it.
I’ve had the Yamaha PSR-E203 for about a year or two and have found that it is more than adequate for the beginner who wants to learn how to play the piano but doesn’t want to spend any decent amount of money. The Yamaha PSR-E203 has all features that a beginner needs with all sorts of different electric and acoustic piano sounds, as well as organ sounds, synth sounds and all sorts of emulations of woodwinds, brass, stringed, and percussion instruments. Its ease of use makes it the perfect candidate to be a beginner’s keyboard. I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn the instrument. The Yamaha PSR-E203 won’t really exceed expectations, as the sounds are the most realistic, but the price makes up for where it might lack in tone. Overall, the perfect keyboard to mess around with and to get acquainted with the wonders of the digital keyboard.

This keyboard is a basic model, easy to use, designed to be used by beginners. It has the Yamaha Educational Suite 5, which in itself is a tutorial to learn piano playing. Functions are clearly marked, and the manual is very easy to understand and complete. I use it in my home studio.
I bought this synth a month ago. I especially like the desing and easy to use, I find against it by missing a few options for my use (Touchtone, pitch wheel ...) and the sound of the built-in speakers a bit saturated.
But I spend a lot of time on it. It is very light, and the best quality / price ratio that I found at that time. I paid $ 160 CA has nine, he sells a $ 100 maintenent. I highly recommend this piano for those who want to learn or improve, enthusiasts with musical technique and also to those who can not afford lessons. I am satisfied, is a good choice for home studio.
