I've owned my Yamaha PSR-540 for several years, just for fooling around. (I also have a beautiful old Model K Steinway baby grand that I'll never sell.) Occasionally, like many of you, I check what's new in the stores -- high and low end. And I'm consistently amazed at how well the PSR-540 stacks up against other digital keyboards for sound quality, set up variations, ease of use and value for the price. I'm now about to upgrade -- I missed weighted key action and am blown away by the truer piano sound dynamics of boards like Yamaha's EP-300. But dollar for dollar, I highly recommend the PSR-540.

I bought this 4 years ago because I wanted the diskette drive in the keyboard. I was having problems with midi/realtime laspe to cakewalk. It had the XG sounds and was a great price. (I have a few keyboards). A couple of years after, the keys started going dead. I was able to fix a couple but one I couldn't. That is terrible for a Yamaha product, I would expect this from Casio/Walmart. I have played a 20 year old DX-7 and the keys still worked. I noticed the Keyboard is Made in China - dollar store build quality. Outside of this it has been fine. I am kinda freaked out by this dead key and I am nevously about playing Yamaha products live now. I will always in the future check where the keyboard is made.

I have had a PSR 530 for about 4 yrs. I recently had a chance to use a PSR 540. The difference, well I guess it hasn,t become a issue yet because they are soooo close in all aspects. The drums are quite similar and I actually like the deep editing you can do on the 540 better. But still they are so close side by side. For the money I paid for my 530 and the money that was spent on the 540 I think the 540 should have cost more, or I paid too much($380). Both of them get a thumbs up!!!!!!

This is my first I've owned keyboard...I've played piano all of my life(but have been playin synths for 3yrs now)...The keys feel cheap but what is to be expected for $350...It has a lot of sounds for what it cost(lots of leads and pad sounds)...While it has the best piano I've heard on a keyboard in this range...I'm gonna get me a korg n364 for $450 since its sounds are more dance oriented...But I'm still gonna keep the 540 since it has a lot of sounds that are on more pro keyboards(such as some of its strings and synth leads and pads)...
