Interesting product, but not what I wanted,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Portable and Digital Hand - 61 Keys Soft Roll up Electronic Piano Keyboard
I'm an amateur pianist and ordered this to have something to practice on when I'm away from home.
From this point of view, I didn't find it suitable.
The first problem is that it's not properly polyphonic. It's fine if you press two notes simultaneously. If you press three though, it adds in a fourth. For example you might press E, G and C and it will add in an E flat. It does this every time, it's not an intermittent problem. It doesn't do it for every combination of notes, but enough to be a problem.
The second problem is that the notes have a border round them that you can feel. This is good, but you then have to press the note in the middle - the edges don't work. If you press a black key by its corner or edge, there is no sound. The same is true of white keys, but it's more of a problem with black keys. It's as though the black key is surrounded by a fixed border, and you need to press inside this border to get a sound.
For these reasons I decided to return it (which went smoothly).
It's a real shame - it's such a good idea, and so close to being excellent.
Others may not be concerned by these things - you may find it suitable for other purposes (inputting a melody into a computer, for example). I don't want to diss the product unduly, I just expected too much.
