1) "It lacks the authentic feel, an experienced pianist would probably turn up their nose
I purchased my Roland F110 piano from Nevada Music in Portsmouth. This was based
upon your recommendation, and a few other points listed below. I wanted the white version of the piano, and
this store was about the only one left in the uk who had them in stock. Roland have a large back order, and most
places were not expecting stock until the end of january / middle of February.
I was eventually comparing the Korg LP350 and the Roland F110 (both in white to match the decor
of my house).
The reasons I decided on the Roland are:
Larger range of voices
Line in (I have a Boss 16 track recording unit with drums, guitar and vocal
effects built into it, I can plug this directly into the Piano and use the speakers of the piano for
Some nice features:
3d spatial sound makes the grand piano sound increadible....it lacks depth without it.
Unfortunately this cannot be set to default, but as soon as you learn the menu system it's easy enough to
Keyboard split and several tracks for recording is useful.
Although the keyboard is ok, compared to the next model up DP900, it lacks the authentic
Menu system is annoying, its based up pressing several buttons together, a better display on the
unit would really simplify things.
Great fun piano for learning on. An experienced pianist would probably turn up their nose
at it, but for someone to learn on it great. Aesthitically I wanted a white piano, so my choices were
limited. If I wanted a black piano, I would strongly recommend spending a little more and going for the DP990
(or whatever the model number is...look it up if you want to post this). They keyboard on it is fantastic,
and has 3 sensitivity levels to get some really clever effects on some voices.

2) "I live in a flat the compact F110 was an ideal option"
Thank you for your very
helpful book and support you provide on this area.
I am very happy with my Roland F110. The piano is for myself. This piano suits the requirements I
had (good touch and sound) and I prefer the sound of a Roland to that of Yamahas - I simply just fell in love with
the more crispy tone. As I live in a flat the compact F110 was an ideal option.
Also, unlike some of Yamaha's digital piano's in the same price range - it had decent speakers
included (2x12W). However, I ended up spending more than I had expected when I started to look into the possible
options - I guess I felt that in the long run, the extra amount was worth it in the long run.
Also, for me the look and the feel is also important, so I cannot help the urge to play

3) "This piano has given me much joy already in just a few weeks!"
After Graham Howard's stellar advice, I bought a Roland F110. Here are my two cent's:
I am simply delighted with my Roland F110! Size was a big concern for me, because I live in a
small, crowded appartment. And it may only be a few inches smaller (depth-wise) than most digital pianos, but it
really makes a difference. It doesn't overpower the room, so to speak. I do not have the knowledge or experience to
compare it to other digital piano's. I can really only compare it to the old, upright (acoustic) piano that my
family still owns and which is badly in need of tuning... I played as a child, and haven't played in 30-odd years,
so I am no piano expert, digital or otherwise. But in the store I liked the Roland's sound better than a Yamaha
model which was a similar price. I´ve had it for a few weeks now, and I love playing it. The keyboard touch feels
real and weighted enough for me. The first day I played around some with the different voices (strings, choir,
drums, etc), but now I really only play the regular piano sound. I play with good quality in-ear headphones, to
keep my neighbours happy (and my ears burn when I use circum/supra-aural headphones). And the sound quality is good
enough for me. This may not be the piano for very experienced players or people who play for an audience, but I
play for my personal enjoyment and this piano has given me much joy already in just a few weeks!

4) "It fits the bill for me"
After some research based on Graham's
Buyer's Guide, of course, I found a white Roland F-110
at sale price as it had ben on display and has been replaced by the F-120. It fits the bill
for me of being a bit more than just a digital piano with a good number of options and
facilities and yet not overwhelming.
I'm mostly playing classical at the moment but want the option of branching out later.
I also like that it takes up minimal space and is less chunky than some that look just like
new pianos. I was surprised to find that I like the sound better than the Yamaha or Korg
that I was looking at.
