To go into more detail for those watching the thread:

1st off, ignore the 'sub 300' guy. even if it was previously that, it's still a great deal, and there's no rule that says 'if it was once a great deal before, it can never be again'. Keyboard's with hammer action are not cheap, this is a great price.

2nd: Yes, hammer action is similar to the feel of a real piano. cheaper keyboards often tend to use plastic keys that can get very clicky sounding, but also are more like buttons rather than keys, you press a note and it's on/playing or it's off. Hammer action and weighted keys on the other hand, feel and respond like an actual piano in that if you lightly press a note, you'll hear it lightly. if you press it quick and hard, you'll hear it louder (much like an actual piano's hammer hitting the strings harder).

For a child who might have an interest in piano, a cheap keyboard can be a good start just to see if they actually like/enjoy it, but for anyone really serious about learning or playing who can't afford an actual piano, cheaper keyboards will drive you crazy but ones like this with solid hammer action are heaven to the fingers and the ears.

Also curious to know if it goes that low..... Are other things / instruments included with this code btw? There's some old guitar sales from adorama that I'm hoping are on again at some point.

Agree with the "stand guy." Let them eat inventory.

Excellent learners keyboard.

I bought a Roland which is awesome but this is lighter and I end up using it more.
