Very good keyboard

By Speedyfingers

from Madison, WI

Comments about Casio WK-500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation:

I like the versatility of this keyboard because just about any tone you need is on it, and it's very easy to play. I have had the keyboard for about two years, and the keys make a lot of noise when played. But the overall quality is very good, and I recommend this keyboard.

Rattling Keys

By Gurkha

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Casio WK-500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation:

Features and sound all excellent. The only issue that I have is the keys all lose the initial "stiffness" and eventually will start to produce a bit of rattling. Had mine for less than 10 days and 2 keys already started to do this. I went to Walmart, Target, and GC which currently have these on display and they ALL rattle.

Great sounds

By Eric-QYq.O

from Kansas

Comments about Casio WK-500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation:

The piano, electric piano, and organ sounds are worth the price alone. I really like the rock organ 2 ("086 Rock Org2") the 60's electric piano ("030 60'S EP1") If you are trying one out, check out those patches for sure. Some of the synth patches are hard to tell apart, but there a a few good sounding ones. Good orchestra patches too. I do wish it had a mod wheel, and metal jacks in the back. Still, it's doubtful you could find sound this good at this price point. Maybe even a hundred above. It's a keeper for me.

Comments about Casio WK-500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation:

It has good sounds, great for the price. But, watch out. It has no MIDI implementation other than USB (no MIDI connectors).

Comments about Casio WK-500 76-Key Digital Keyboard Workstation:

I researched a lot for this purchase, it doesn't have everything but the instruments/tones are good, drum/rhythms as good as the drum machines I've had, the auto accompany is worth admission. Great looking machine, well built. Screen is big enough to read easily, instruction manual is fair to suck. Support is, useless. What this keyboard does would be worth $1000 for what I need it for, it really is a fantastic value IMO. I played keys briefly 20 years ago, the keys feel nice. The onboard speakers are decent, this sounds really good through my pa, it's not a Phantom etc, but it's a pretty unbelievable value. If you buy one and don't like it, send it to me....:lol:
