Digital piano reviews – where to find them and how to use them to your advantage
When you’re thinking of buying a digital piano, it’s very important that you check out some good digital piano reviews. But it’s not always easy to find helpful reviews and use them to your advantage. In this post we give you a couple of tips.
(1) Find reviews left by actual users of the product
It goes without saying that you can’t expect the manufacturers to give you objective reviews of their own products. You have to take what they say about their pianos with a grain of salt. But the same is often true of the reviews written by stores and retailers. Many stores have a vested interest in certain pianos and will do whatever it takes to sell certain models.
The best thing you can do, therefore, is read reviews left by actual users of the product. Where can you find these? Generally speaking, you will find them at the bottom of product pages on sites like Amazon.
Indeed, Amazon is an extremely good place to go to if you’re looking for genuine reviews left by actual users. Suppose you’re thinking about getting the Yamaha NP30. Then one of the smartest things you can do is visit the Amazon product page and read some of the reviews.
Remember – the comments you see were all left by people who have already purchased the NP30. If anyone knows whether the piano is decent, they do!
(2) Check the rating / number of stars
Obviously different users have different priorities and opinions. If you only read comments left by individual users/customers, it can be difficult to get a picture of the overall popularity of the piano.
This is where the ratings and “star” system come in handy. Once again, Amazon is a great example. In addition to the comments and written reviews, Amazon gives you an excellent indication of the overall popularity of the piano. Where? Answer: In the number of “stars” underneath the product name.
A piano like the Yamaha P85, for example, gets 5 stars out of 5 on Amazon. This is an average score based on all the reviews left by different users. In other words, it’s an excellent, objective measure of the popularity and calibre of the piano.
That brings us to the end of this short post. We hope you’ve found these two tips useful. Feel free to look around this site, where you’ll find genuine digital piano reviews underneath all our piano descriptions.
