Comments about Yamaha ez-220:
I purchased this model exclusively for the Yamaha digital sound reputation, grand piano inclusive, and for the lighted-key option. It's GREAT and so much fun to play! Other visual learners will understand the benefit of the lighted-key feature. A full 88-key instrument with this option would be an excellent addition to the Yamaha family. The modulation feature (ability to play multiple octaves within the 61 keys) is a good work-around. Headphones (or perhaps an amplifier) are best for true sound performance.
Additional features would have given this model a perfect 5 stars: 1) On-board recording capability 2) Split-keyboard instrument playability (or ability to blend voices) 3) Angled LCD display for easier viewing 4) Colored buttons.
The EZ-220 will connect to a computer for recording and arranging music (software not included, nor is the AC power adapter).
Beginners and advanced alike will enjoy this instrument. I was playing along with the pre-programmed songs within minutes! For the price, the EZ-220 is a good choice.
