Kenan, The G1000 has the best features, keyboard range and feel,and storage features.I personally think its the best overall of any manufacture, and I have owned them all. If speakers are important the EM2000 works but lacks some features that the G1000 has, and the keys are not desirable for me..Fran

Thank you Fran Carango for telling me that the G-1000 is a better keyboard. But my other question is: Is it possible to use Styles from the G-800 in the G-1000? If you know please inform me I would really appreciate your help Thank you! Bye

kenan,

Yes, you can use Roland G800 styles on G1000. However, there has been rumors that Roland will probably launch a G1200 keyboard in a few months. If you like Roland's arranger keyboard you may want to wait for the new one. As far as music styles and sounds are concerned, Solton X1 in my opinion is much better than Roland G1000's although I am more used to Roland G1000's way of operation.
