The sound is really great! The grand piano option is especially good. I really enjoy the various stored effects and accompaniments. The keyboard "feel" is just right for practice. I bought a sustain pedal. This should ideally be part of the original pack.

This is a great keyboard and whilst I have nothing modern to compare it to, the keyboards I had in the early 90's make this one seem delightful to use. I particularly like the option to learn chords or whole pieces of music and found I lost an enitre evening learning one piece of music.

The weight of the keyboard is non-existent, which helps if you have to transport it, yet the sound and the sensitivity of the keys is fantastic.

Lots of options, probably too many for me, but my boys love the demos and the various intruments and sound effects.

I doubt I am ever going to perform in front of anyone, but if I had to I am sure this would suit an audience.

Bought this for my daughter who is just learning - it's a great tool and the touch sensitive keys are brilliant. More features than I know what to do with!

I shopped around for this keyboard and read all reviews. This is an excellent keyboard for someone learning as well as someone who can play. The keys are pressured and the piano function sounds very authentic. There is a tuition programme with adjustable times on it which is easy to understand and taxing to learn - ideal. This has been excellent for our family and I would recommend to anyone looking for a good keyboard to learn on.

I wanted to learn to play the piano and my husband wanted to try playing keyboard. This seems to be the cheapest Yamaha that has touch sensitive keys so we thought it would be a good one to start with. We both find it excellent. The grand piano voice is quite convincing and I also like the bright piano and honky tonk voices. I think this model will be fine for us for a long time although I will need to buy a sustain pedal for playing it as a piano. It is extremely light and could easily be stored in a cupboard or stood up in a corner.

It has been a few years since I bought myself a keyboard to replace the PSR E323 that I found favour with in 2012 (Review on Ciao and Dooyoo). So, the requirement now is a touch sensitive keyboard that I can sometimes take with me to play at gigs to something I can plug my computer into when working with several different computer music programs as well as playing for leisure. The Yamaha PSR E343 is very familiar coming from either PSR E323 or E333 model, with only a few vital differences.

Function wise, this is a very simple keyboard to work even if the most excited pianist or keyboard player doesn't have all the time in the world to read the user manual. What a pity though that for the most part, the only downside to this keyboard is the lack of an actual sustain button. They can be found on the prevous models including the E323, Other surprises consist of the "Reverb" button being replaced with "Surround Sound," that like tweeters on a HIFI system, reduces the sound a fair bit even if it does offer stereo wide sound. I do like the sound quality, but this isn't a keyboard to rely on for playing with the full power increased all the way - the speakers can crackle with some of the tones and voices that the Yamaha PSR E343 offers and provides - and in my some 20 years of experience of Yamaha home keyboards, this surprising lack of clarity is a bit of a downside.

Another issue that one of my students has had is being able to play along with any number of the demo songs built into the PSR E343. Whereas previous models allows both left hand part and right hand part to play and be heard at the same time, there seems to be a real problem with the PSR E343 where only some notes can be played.

Keyboard:
As good as a digital keyboard withing this price range can be. Lots of features, so definitely more than what a beginner needs. Grand piano function makes the sound very pleasant.

Package:
Yamaha package with branding. Power adapter is a hidden gem! (very well hidden, so look carefully)

Delivery:
Made an order on Sat. There were a few delivery options, among them: fast (3 pounds extra, would deliver on Tuesday) and slow (free, about Friday). Opted for a free one and, wow, was dispatched on Monday and received on Tuesday. Amazon used Yodel. I had had rather an unpleasant experience with Yodel before (they just lost a book) but this time it was good.

I'm not a musician, but this seems to be a very good instrument for the price, although we haven't yet fathomed out many of the features. The piano sounds very natural and even plays louder if you strike the keys harder, as a real piano would do. Other instrument simulations, such as strings, sustain the notes as long as the key is pressed, so that's quite clever. It comes with a power unit, so there is no need to worry about the fuss/cost of using batteries. My daughter has no excuse now not to practice her piano lessons that she's receiving at school.
