I am mainly a guitar player, but I do like to "fiddle around" some on keyboards, and last February I got a Casio CTK-496 at the local store in Toledo, OH. I enjoy this little keyobard a lot! All the tones are surprisingly good for a low-priced keyboard, and there is actually a decent amount of volume to be had through the onboard speakers. It does have a jack for a sustain pedal. The built-in rhythm machine is also nice, and I actually use that mainly when I practicing my guitar playing. It's also compact and stores easily. For those who don't primarily play keys but would would like to have a keyboard around without spending much, I highly recommend the CTK-496.
I just bought this keyboard about a month or so ago and I must say, that this is well worth the money. You get a whole bunch of instruments and sounds to choose from and it even lets you practice certian songs already recorded into the keyboard. I am mainly a guitar player but also learning piano in college and I have to admit this is ONE of THE BEST starter keyboards out there. I recommend it highly. get your hands on it NOW.
