i wish someone else who knows this brand would say something. but since no one seems to care answering your question, i thought i might just try to help you little bit. i really don't know this brand, but saw some reviews here:

korg reviews

it doesn't sound like a good buy if you read through what people say there. for that kind of money, you might just get a better digital piano like Yamaha's p90/p120/p250. at least Yamaha has better reputation, and personally, i like the feel of their weighted key action (as heavy and realistic as an acoustic piano).

Really? According to whom? Some of the world's best keyboard players play Korg.

ok, SteveY, maybe i should say instead "Yamaha is more popular" and at least i like it, and it does have good reputation.

I didn't mean to jump on you -- I just wanted to make sure that a less-informed reader didn't think Korg products were garbage, which of course, they're not. I'm not a huge Korg fan, but some of my favorite musicians (Lyle Mays, Russ Ferrante, etc.) are big-time Korg users.

Yes, Yamaha has a good reputation. So does Korg & Roland, and maybe even Kurzweil (depending who you talk to).

Not sure what the "Le" series is, but I have played the Triton several times. It is a nice keyboard. I used to own the precursor, the "Trinity", which I really liked. They are well built, and the touch screen is pretty intuitive. It is a full workstation that allows you to record, program, sequence, etc... You can create your own sounds and apply effects. If that is what you are looking for, then the Korg Triton is a very solid choice.

For a digital piano, you would have to look elsewhere. The Triton doesn't have weighted keys, and the piano patches are not so good. It also only has 61 or 76 keys (i think both are available, my Trinity had 61 keys).

What are you planning on using it for? There is really no point in comparing the Yamaha P-series (which are digital pianos), to a Korg Triton (which is a full workstation). It's a different product geared for different markets.

There are three versions of the Triton with 88 graded hammer action keys: The Triton Extreme 88, the Triton Studio 88, and the Triton LE 88.

ah, i stand corrected then. My knowledge from back during the Trinity days is pretty much obsolete, i guess. I did play a Korg digital piano at Guitar Center and i really did not like the keys... i wonder if the Triton weighted ones hvae the same keys.

The Triton LE Series is a full work station comes in the 88 Key with weighted hammer action, the 76 key, and the 61 key (both the 76 and the 61 do not have weighted keys only the 88) besides the amount of keys, and the weighted keys on the 88, they all have the same features as far as sounds, samplers, sequencers, layout ect.
