    I love my Roland F-140R, the keys have very decent weight, just like a real piano(this is very important for any beginner, you don’t want to play on weightless keys and develop strengthless fingers), and the sound is just superb! I think overall Roland F-140R excel in it’s price range in every single way.

    • Hi Fei, thanks for dropping by. Like I said, it’s my personal review on the unit I tested. Many love the F-140R just like you do.

        I sort of understand why you say the keys are clicky, to me it is not clicky, it’s more that in very rare occasions the keys can bounce back a tiny bit delayed than you expect them to. But I’m not sure if it’s because of my way of playing is insufficient or it is the keys…. anyways, good rewiew Wei!

        • Okay, good to know that it’s not just me who’s feeling the clicks in the key action. The keys bounce back delayed because the so called let-off. It introduces friction to mimic that escapement feel on grand concert pianos. I’m pretty sure it’s the keys and not the way you are playing them. I would suggest that you play the same passage on an acoustic piano and see if there’s any difference.

  2. This is a really great review of the Roland. I do not play the piano, but it is something I have always wanted to start playing. I would love to have one for my home that I could start using. This looks like a great choice! Being a beginner, I guess the key action would not be a huge deal breaker, or is there another piano you would recommend as a long-term purchase?

    • Hi Matt’s Mom, cute name. Thanks you for your comment. If you have never played piano before, I would recommend the Yamaha P45. It’s a great digital piano for beginners and most importantly, you can’t beat the price of that one. It’s less than $400. See my Yamaha P45 review here.

    • Thanks for dropping by Diego. I’m actually not so sure about my review. It’s very personal. Some pianists I talked about love the action on the Roland F-140R.
