Some comments from people who come to the forum about this model:

Comment:

Love this keyboard. It fits appropriate in front of my 13″ Macbook Pro.
They keys are complete size and therefore are a wonder to relax and play. The issue that is just that the aftertouch just isn’t working regardless of what you do. Therefore I’d suggest CME to drop the purchase price by ¤50 and eliminate marketing it as a polyphonic aftertouch keyboard.
