Alesis? They've been around for donkey's years. I'd say they were budget to mid range but generally good quality.
My first drum machine was an Alesis SR16 back in the eighties, which I believe may have been when they started out. Solid workmanlike products at a reasonable price.

Heat from me.

Still available at the price stated in the deal, needs un-expiring.

Has anyone bought or tried one of these for themselves? I can't find one in a real-world shop near me and want to try before buying to see what its "feel" is like. Can only see it in online shops.

Am after an 88-key keyboard for one child's piano lessons; there is no room for an acoustic piano and in fact there is a space of just a shade over 130cm where the keyboard can go (it is a small room and there is no alternative place to put one). All the Casio and Yamaha digital pianos start at just over 132cm and simply will not fit - the gap is that tight. Shame, as I would rather get one of the Yamahas. This Alesis is 128.3cm and will fit - it's the only one I've found so far that will.

At the moment daughter is using my old Kawai K1 synth from years ago, ie mildly sprung "semi weighted" keys, not much feel and there is a clear difference in response between the white and black keys (same strength gives softer black notes. This was always the case, I used to see it when using as a MIDI controller). She likes her classical pieces and I want her to be able to develop a reasonable piano-feel for playing, which she is not getting from that.

If this Alesis isn't much better then despite the extra keys I'll leave it - she can do some of her practice at her school where there's a piano in the music room. The downside is of course that she can't do that in the evenings or weekend.

If it's close to the feel of, say, the Yamaha P45 or even one of the Casio pianos then I will probably take the risk.

Thanks for any help

I have bought this, but unfortunately I am a complete novice so can't really help much beyond saying the black and white keys do seem to me to have a similar response in their weighting.

There are many more reviews on the .com website which may help:
