This review is from: Casio CTK-2300 61-Key Portable Keyboard
Pros: Came ready to play
Cons: Included music stand isn't great
Other Thoughts: I still can't play the thing well yet, but that's gonna take quite a while. It's pleasant to use and has pretty good sound quality. The included music stand (a little plastic bit you stick on the back) isn't positioned perfectly for me but that's mostly preference, it's durable enough to hold up the music book so I don't see it having any problems with regular sheet music.
