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

Comment:

I got it for my recording studio, to be used with Reaper. Mapping didn’t work I had to setup every thing manualy like it should (for Windows), so.

Great features, good feel of this tips. The steel casing is an option that is excellent.

BUT, center C key has started blocking after only a few hours of continual use! I thougt, possibly it was some nagging problem with my computer or VSTs, however now, after couple of weeks it generally does not work at all! This really is very anoying, because it is one of the most used tips whenever playing. Exactly how can it be even possible that from 25 secrets, one broke nearly immediately? Exactly what buildt quality is?

I am disapointed with this specific brand and do not suggest buying, rather save additional money and purchase something better.
