5.0 out of 5 stars Music to my ears! 5 Mar. 2013
By Amber
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Bought this during the lightning deal season and have loved it since, didn't expect it to be such a good piece of kit. It is a little on the small side but plays well once you know what you're doing, the item itself is quite heavy but there is no need to carry it around as you can also use it on your lap or a table top.

I played it a couple of times and the key presses are still lovely and smooth, you often find that keys will start to become clunky or sticky but not with this. Impressed so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockband Stevie Wonder 8 Dec. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
A fun addition to the rockband line-up. My friend really loves this peripheral (she used to play the piano), but I found it far trickier to master than I did any of the other instruments. It works very well, though, and the full key size is welcome for a more 'accurate' feel. Its functionality is perfectly fine. I only wish there were more keyboard compatible games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 12 Feb. 2013
By Eltee
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Bought this during the lightning deal. It's great fun and very good value for money at this price. This feels very much like a real keyboard albeit a bit plasticky but can't complain for the price. Can also use for the guitar and bass sections of the game, so your enjoyment is extended even further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult but good fun 15 Oct. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have mastered the Guitar and drums for Rock band, then this is the next step. This wireless keyboard can be played as a Keytar or as a Keyboard. Using it as a Keytar is like playing the Guitar only you don't have to strum as well, so it is quite easy. However, using this as a keyboard can be quite difficult as it takes time to get used to the instrument and work out where your fingers should be. Once you have played a couple of songs you start to get a feel for the instrument and it becomes as fun to play as the others.

The biggest issue I have with this product is that you cannot use it with every song (as not all songs have a keyboard part). If you do not play this game a lot then it is probably not worth buying, but if you often have 5+ people playing then this can be a great way to get another person involved.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack of keyboard friendly songs 6 Jan. 2013
By Jenny
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
The only thing bringing my review way down on this, is the fact the game comes with very few songs you can actually use the keyboard to! Just seems like a way of trying to force us to buy more songs. Otherwise, no complaints.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some cool songs, but too few included 26 Jun. 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
The keyboard quality is fantastic. It's easy to use, and great to learn how to play.

That being said, including a few more songs wouldn't hurt...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied Gamer! 12 July 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been very pleased with this item, it arrived 5 days earlier than expected, and was packaged very neatly.

The item itself is of fantastic quality, good price and comes bundled with the game. One thing that people often miss out on this product is that this is a bundle, so it comes with the game and I know a lot of people miss that out on this product and end up buying it from another seller.

Been having a lot of fun with Rock Band too, I thought I might get bored of it eventually but I'm still playing!
