Yamaha PSRE333 Portable Keyboard Review

Today we are looking at the Yamaha PSRE333 Portable Keyboard which is proving popular on Amazon UK and has an average star rating of 4.5. Yamaha portable keyboards are very popular and this particular one is one that I don’t know much about so that’s why I wanted to check it out in detail.

The Yamaha PSRE333 is described as being suitable for both beginners and advanced players so lets see what features it has that will appeal to both these groups (it is at a discount at the time of writing).

Yamaha PSRE333 Product Features

  • 61 full-size keys
  • keys are touch sensitive and response to how hard you press the keys which is more like an accoustic piano
  • 497 voices to choose from and these are grouped according to the sound type (e.g. piano, guitar, strings, wind, percussion etc.)
  • 106 backing styles to accompany your playing – these include Jazz, Dance, Ballroom and even R&B styles
  • Yamaha education system is included with the PSRE333 keyboard and this is fantastic for beginners as it will help you to play music pieces straight away by breaking them down into smaller bits and working on the left hand and right separately before playing both hands.Yamaha PSRE333 Portable Keyboard
  • there is a 2 track song recorder so you will be able to record yourself and hear your own progress. It will keep recordings of to 5 tracks
  • if you want to listen to some great peices you will find 102 preset songs
  • a music database stores all settings for quick and easy selection
  • the sound produced is well balanced and full especially as it includes the Yamaha Unltra wide stereo system
  • headphone sockets
  • LCD screen displays the current settings and also has a keybaord and notation guide which is useful
  • USB connectivity to computer
As you can see there are plenty of features that will appeal to beginner and advanced players. There is an automatic switch off function if you forget to turn off after using the keyboard.
What I also liked about this keyboard is that the touch sensitivity can be turned off if you don’t want it. This would come in useful for young beginners who don’t yet understand the concept of how accoustic piano dynamics work.

Now lets see what customers are saying about the Yamaha PSR333 and why it has such a good star rating.

Customer Reviews

Pros

  • quality built keyboard
  • easy to start using as a beginner
  • the Yamaha education system really makes it easy to play from stratch
  • great to have full size keys and touch sensitivity for the price
  • the display shows the keys or notes you are pressing which is helpful when learning a song

Cons

  • check to make sure that the AC adapter is included for your country – it seems that only the UK may have the adapter included
Having read all the reviews it is clear that the Yamaha PSRE333 would have achieved a 5 star rating since the 2 low ratings were from people who didn’t get an AC adapter due to not living in the UK. It’s a shame Amazon don’t mention this on their country specific websites so be sure to check this out if you are buying from Europe.
