    CME XKEY-NEON BLUE reviews

    Xkey - Mobile MIDI Keyboard (Neon Blue) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Axon 7, one of the best!!!! After trying, and returning two Note 7 due to the recall, I decided to go with an unlocked non carrier specific mobile. I tried a few, but ended up with the Axon 7. Well 5 months later, I'm kicking myself for spending SO much on mobiles from my carrier, when something like the Axon have been here all along. This phone is snappy, and the battery life on this is INCREDIBLE and the service warranty is hands down, worth a look! My ONLY beef with this phone is that there is no option to move apps to the SD card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most mobile keyboard! I've been looking for a good full-size key 25 key controller to take on the road for awhile now. I had purchased a Line 6 25-key controller, returned it and also a M-Audio Oxygen 25 from another store the week before. Both were just too big to travel with. I dropped in to BH Photo when I was in NY over the weekend and picked up the CME Xkey 25. The CME Xkey is very sturdy, with 25 full-size keys built into a solid piece of aluminum. It is surprisingly playable and sensitive given how small and thin it is. The key travel isn't very deep, but the little beastie makes up for that by being incredibly light and portable. I find I can get all my composing tasks done with ease using the Xkey. I can pop the Xkey into my backpack along with my MacBook and know that I have a small but mighty rig on my back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I needed more space on my desk, so I was looking for the smallest keyboard possible. The xkey was a little larger than i had pictured, but still worked out phenomenally well. The aftertouch on the keys is great and switching octaves is no problem. The portability is a huge plus for when I'm writing music on the go. This is a fantastic product for the price if you just need a keyboard without all the fancy knobs and faders.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay, but...... Picked this turntable to get alot of my vinyl on my iPod. It works okay and the speakers are also just okay. My one grip with this is that the arm is so light, the slightest scratch on a record send it flying across the album. I've tried putting a nickel, dime, penny, etc on the head to add a little weight, but it still happens. The crazy thing is, that the same vinyl has no problem on regular turntables.... go figure!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for composing while you travel I'm on tour almost half the year and currently working on a full piece composition for an opera so I can't looks precious time while I'm traveling. This keyboard has allowed me to make use of that time, it's light and easy to pack (fits in my carry on). Plus a colleague of mine has the white one so the gold helps us not get mixed up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Mobile This keyboard is fantastic. It is portable and stylish and the playability is good. If you're expected a weighted feel it is definitely not for you. I am not a pianist so this is an excellent solution for composing. I use it for Reason. It fits in my laptop backpack and is quick to plug in and start working.
