When I got this keyboard yesterday I stayed up till 3am playing with it. It has hundreds of things you can do with it, it may not be a casio and feel like a real piano but I personally like it better because there is soooo much you can do with it. all the 500 voices are as realistic as they can get. they keys arent weighted which kinda sucks for using the piano but otherwise i have not one complaint. lastly the speakers sound amazing and of very high quality. One of the best items i have bought in my life :)

Disappointed in Yahama YPG-535 88-key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard

It has lots of potentially good sounds but on mine they do not measure up. If it sounded like the demos it would be fantastic! Mine sounds like an out of tune piano. If this was my only experience with Yahama I would be inclined to never even consider anything that has the Yamaha name on it. I am used to playing a REAL Yahama grand piano that is wonderful!
I was not able to play it much right after receiving it and discarded the carton and packing or I would have sent it back.
The touch is horrible! If I play a little harder to increase volume the sound is distorted - just horrible!
I have a 61 key Casio that is about 38 years old and the touch on it is really good. No distortion when played heavier.
I will not recomend this to anyone.

    Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

    I liked the machine until I discovered a problem in the Ballad Section [#63 & #64] with a low frequency vibration output. I returned it to have it replaced but two more identical keyboards all have the same issue and I was told it was most likely not repairable and that, but the tech's comment, Yamaha has indicated no knowledge of the problem. I purchased a Casio PX350 to replace it and it was a great choice but other than that the Yamaha seemed to be okay.

    Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

    The touch on this keyboard doesn't send my old fingers into sharp pain as the weighted key do. So for me the softer touch enables me to enjoy playing again. The sound is ok and if you are just learning it is a great investment to test the resilience of the student with. Are they going to stick with it.. if so then purchase them a more expensive instrument ... I was confused on the description in one place it states sustain pedal comes with it and then in another part at the bottom of the page under "auto tune" its says sustain sold seperately... This does come with a sustain pedal.. No need to purchase one separately.......

    Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

    I am using this keyboard in my home studio and it is doing an okay job. As stated above, the piano settings sound a little "Clinky" on the upper scale, but the sound comes thru good in recording. This is an upgrade from the YPG-525 I already had for several years. I am staying with Yamaha!

      Comments about Yamaha YPG-535 88-Key Portable Grand Piano Keyboard:

      The YPG535 does not have a good quality piano sound. I purchased this keyboard for a school and am very disappointed in the quality of the feel, touch, and sound of the instrument. I personally own a Casio Privia with weighted keys (same price), but sounds and feels MUCH better than the Yamaha YPG 535. This keyboard was ordered by a school over the summer, and I just now opened the box and set it up to use (end of August). I'm not sure at this point if I can exchange it for a different keyboard.

      We bought a restock model for a little cheaper. Not a single problem so far. It was easy to assemble and it sounds great. The screen is not so easy to see however. Overall, great cheap keyboard.

          Purchaced one of these for my son. Wasn't long before 2 series of keys started behaving erratically (volume) then quit altogether. I called Yamaha's support desk and got no response. I would rate this a complete piece of junk and wouldn't recommend any Yamaha product based on their customer response.

            I have played many keyboards that were of the same price/quality range and I am very satisfied with this pruduct. The manual is easy to use and the select buttons are very user friendly. I bought it to practice at home because my main instruments were at the rehearsal space but I am considering using it in live performances. Great sounds and great portability by removing the 4 screws that are underneath to use on any other music stand.
