I agree with you there. I have had my JD-Xi for just over one year, and 10 keys have broken. I do not believe I have been abusive towards the keyboard, however, I have been using it a lot, practically everyday, and I PLAY it like I would a piano. It should NOT break like that. I have played keyboards all my life, I'm 50, and I have never had this problem. Aside from that, I have a few issues with the sequencer, it often doesn't playback the same as I record, tracks sometimes distort, and I have to reboot, and it often changes settings as it is playing back, mind you I do work it to the max, and so I intend on dumping all the (saved) data onto my computer and then wiping it, resetting the Xi to the factory default. I also downloaded ver 1.50 - which was supposed to fix some of the problems I'm having but no. Resetting it seems logical and reboot. As for the keys I did purchase a 2 year warranty, so Roland may fix them. If not, I understand that a new key bed is not expensive. All in all though, I think the JD-Xi is the BEST $600.00 I have ever spent, and I suspect most owners \ users don't realize what they have in that machine. It's underrated IMO FORGET about the KORG. No comparison, except the KORG's chassis is built a bit more durable. The JD-Xi has many secrets in the menu and the panel, which are NOT in any manual or video for that matter, that I have seen.
