This page states that the keyboard has an MIDI I/O terminal. THIS IS NOT TRUE. It only has a USB port. It does not come with a USB cable. The software is Windows (98SE/ME/XP) only. The headphone jack is a 1/4" plug - so get an adapter if you plan on using regular music headphones (with the 1/8" mini plug). And remember that this does not come with an power adapter. The case itself feels flimsy - maybe I'm spoiled with my Yamaha YPG-625, but it just feels cheap. It even buckles slightly in the middle on the keyboard stand I bought separately. I bought this as a secondary keyboard to play at my office, and I'm slightly disappointed of the quality. Even the keys seem smaller (I checked, they aren't - but it appears so). My advice is to try out all keyboards in person before buying them (his site still has better deals than local vendors) - if I had played with this in the store, I might have opted to go for something else.
I have had this keyboard for about 8 months and it worked fine until one day it just didn't turn on. I am assuming something happened to the power input but I haven't got it to work with the batteries yet either. I would recommed spending a little bit more and getting a better model.
