I've had time to reflect now, and I still love this machine. It sounds great, easy to edit (once you get used to it), and is really sturdy. I've gigged it a couple of times, using the volume control to get a live gate effect and it still hasn't broken. Ditto the joystick which takes a pounding live and in jam sessions. The acoustic sounds are lovely, and the piano through a good PA had a lovely soft, warm tone. The organs are a bit rough, but organ 3 also sounded good live. It obviously doesn't have everything I need, but until I can afford another synth (first stop, Z1 and Microwave XT) it does the job brilliantly. And its silver and looks cool.

Amazing. Mind-blowing depth in the bass sounds, even from it's own built in sound system which can out perform quite a few keyboard amplifiers. All of the built-in styles are fiendishly clever and imaginitive, and it's good to see that most of them are brand new, although its nice to hear that a few of the i3's styles have been included as well. It looks gorgeous, because it's silver in colour, it looks a bit like a sort of mini-Trinity. Let downs? The brass sounds still aren't wonderful, and there's no style edit facility. You can't see the lyrics of SMF's on the screen, but apparently this has been addressed in the latest O.S upgrade. The synth sounds are outstanding; I swear that some of the analogue synth sounds are samples of older Korg machinery such as the Polysix and Poly 61, which my dad used to have when I was a "nipper". The iS40 makes the Roland E-series, Yamaha PSR's and everything else sound like transistor radios. Highly Recommended.
