# M-Audio Keystation 61es
## Feedback regarding Packaging

## Review on product page
Summary:

- I would recommend the product happily.
- My rating is based on the product itself only (not the product's box).

Relating to Product:

- Quality feel: 8.5/10. Very nice.
- Con: Slightly creaky / noisy keys.
- Con: There is a plastic branding plate on the top right of the keyboard which is lifting slightly. Doesn't impact performance at all but does nibble at the quality rating.
- Functionality: 10/10. Perfect.
- Semi-weighted keys: 10/10. Very nice.
- Velocity sensitivity: 9/10. Very nice.
- Set up: 10/10. Easy.
- Very simple. Plug in and play.
- Operating system used: Mac.
- Software: Garageband / Logic.
- Value: 10/10. Great.
- Product protection by box: 6/10. Ok.
- Product floats inside of three egg boxes (one at each side and one in the middle). The product would benefit from better protection.

Relating to Amazon:

- Delivery speed: 10/10. Delightful.
- Packaging choice: 5/10. Unsuitable.
- As the product box inside doesn't offer the greatest protection to the product, the item would greatly benefit from the protection of cardboard box postage packaging rather than a plastic mailer bag.
- Product box condition: 1/10. Extremely poor.
- The product box was torn and damaged on arrival. It also had a few shoe prints on it which suggested it had been kicked or stood on before being packed. Due to a) the stickers over the opening flaps looking as though they had been reapplied; and b) the tears being mostly in places they would appear if a box had been carelessly opened; I wondered if I had been sent a previously unboxed item or worse, a second hand one. I wouldn't have purchased the item based on the condition of the box. If this had been intended as a gift, I couldn't have given it. I would be reluctant to return the product just so that I could receive one that has a perfect condition box however, would very much appreciate receiving what I paid for. I very much hope it is a one-off. Most unusual for Amazon. This was extremely disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 Nov. 2012
Summary: I recommend this product.
- Note: This is a review of the WeMo Switch, not the Motion Sensor.

### Unit:
- Size: A smaller unit would be welcome. The width of the unit can prevent neighbouring plug sockets from being used. However, this may not be the case depending on the chosen power supply (e.g. some power strips have a larger distance between sockets)
- Build quality: Very good.
- Initial set up: Easy.
- Weight: Appropriate.
- Design: Nice.
- Noise: Runs silently. Emits a Click sound when switching a device on or off.

### Functionality + iOS Application:
- Use with: iPhone 4S.
- Load time: As of version 1.8 the app takes a couple of seconds to load (i.e. open and find devices).
- Works perfectly.
- Easy to use.
- Very customisable.
- Extremely responsive. Triggered switches are nearly instant (under a second).
- Switches and status can be triggered and viewed remotely. (Handy for cases of "Did I leave the *item of choice* on?")

### Scheduling:
- Allows for fairly specific rules.
- Rules can be set for:
- Weekends
- Weekdays
- Individual days
- Rules allow for:
- Turn on only.
- Turn off only.
- Turn on then off.
- Keeps time perfectly.
- Active rules can be overridden easily.

### IFTTT:
- Set up: Fairly straight forward.
- Functionality:
- Works perfectly.
- Responsiveness: Very good. 8 seconds for IFTTT 'recipes' to trigger. (e.g. recipe 'if email contains tag '#hall-light' turn on hall light).
- Straight forward set up.
- Allows for interesting uses (Turn on a fan if the weather is over 18 degrees Celsius.) (if I'm approaching home [using phone's location], turn on the light.)

Product packaging: Very nice, good quality, easy to open, Apple-like in the fact that it's no nonsense. Would be easy to re-package.

### Price (As of 2012-11-23, £39 at Amazon):
- Single unit: Slightly expensive.
- Multiple units: This would get expensive quickly.
