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

Good keyboard. Bought as a birthday present for 13 year old daughter who has frequently enjoyed playing on it since purchase one month ago, continuing from learning at school.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
Typical Yamaha keyboard really. The software is a little outdated, but that rich, creamy sound just makes up for everything. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Chris M
