Yeah, I'm leaning towards the RD300GX myself in the near future.

I bought the 300GX, then returned it the next day and bought an FP4. The 300GX looked much more professional, as did the controls and display. However, then I had to buy a case for it. Even though it's a fairly narrow keyboard, the extra length (for the pitch/bend joystick) requires you to go to a much bigger (and heavier) case. I also missed the music stand that the FP4 has. I like to travel light, so the FP4 worked much better for me - and I was able to use the case I already owned for the FP3 that I replaced. The Session Partner has been quite useful over the years, for me mainly for practice, and the FP4 will base the bass line on what you are 'comp'ing with your left hand - very neat.
