    Yamaha PSRE453 reviews

    PSR-E453 - Portable Keyboard (No Power Adapter) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I wanted a keyboard that was both inexpensive and had lots of voices and the PSR-E453 was exactly what I was looking for. I've only had it for a week, so I can't give it a thorough review, but after connecting the USB cable to my computer and downloading/installing the keyboard driver from Yahama, I was up and running and recording. The voices I've tried are true-sounding enough for what I need (some are better than others), and I'm looking forward to trying out other available features. If you're in the market for a full-size, professional keyboard with a true piano feel, this isn't it. But if you're just starting out or if you're looking for voices to enhance a recording and you don't want to spend a whole lot of money, this keyboard is worth your consideration.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No power adapter Good product. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact it does not come with a power adapter.
