Sound Quality
With enough tweaking I was able to get a couple realistic sounds, but let's face it, this is a synth, not a sampler. Pads are great. I always did like the pianos. It was a break from the Rhodes and Roland sounds. If you're not doing nothing but covers, who would want to sound like everyone else all the time? But the tweakability factor is huge.
I used to think it was bulletproof. Not quite so. But it got banged around a bit being toted here and there and never suffered any serious damage. Else, see below.
General Comments
I've had a couple people ask about buying it from me, and only seriously considered it once. I don't think I would consider buying a replacement at this point, however, if it were "lost" unless it was in perfect working condition and I personally tested it (in other words, never off eBay) since their support is so much less than exemplary.
