With no velocity sensitivity, it's a stretch to call this a musical instrument. The LCD screen is a gimmick which doesn't save this board from being a useless bit of Argos-grade tat.

If you're looking for a keyboard, save your pennies and put them towards a real keyboard with velocity sensitivity. Look toward musical instrument retailers like Dolphin Music for better products.
Been meaning to learn to play the piano/keyboard as of late, os this is a very serendipitous find.
This led me to look around at how much these actually cost however and I found one on Amazon which appears very similar, but includes a stand, a stool, and a pair of headphones for only £10 more (link here)

Not sure that the stool would serve much purpose for me personally, but for the extra maybe somebody else would find it useful?

being that dolphin music start at about 2-3 times the above, I think they're being aimed at slightly different markets tbh.
We don't need to start comparing Dacias and BMWs again, but this seems like a perfectly respectable entry level keyboard for somebody who is only starting out and could probably benefit from a sound that is a little more forgiving of over or under zealous keystrokes

Under or overzealous keystrokes are dealt with by setting the keyboard's velocity curve. A good keyboard will usually have a few levels of curve compression, reducing the variance between the intensity of each note to the level the player desires. Having no velocity control at all is *not* an advantage.

Girls... listen... forget the irrelevant argument about "velocity blahblah"... here's how it is...

Damn, no velocity sensitive keys?! I need a small 49/61 note keyboard, but without such a basic feature, I'd recommend people look elsewhere. Without velocity sensitivity, learning to play will not feel or sound great. Does anyone know of a similarly priced 49/61 note keyboard that does have velocity keys?
