Default Re: Midi Keyboard recommendations please

After looking at several $200-$500 controllers, and hating the keybeds, I scored an old Ensoniq Mirage keyboard. Very simple and limited, but it has a good feel and works dandy for organ and synth playing, and cost me$50. Lots of used Yamaha and Casio weighted pianos on the used market(if you want weighted piano action) too. Hit the local music stores(and bring the wife). There's nothing like actually playing on these things to see what I mean(or if it matters).
Thank you for the recommendation! Will do! God bless!
