What can we say?  The LPD8 is brilliant.  It is outstanding value for money, it's packed with features and solidly built but it manages to do this all from an unbelievably compact box.  If you perform or compose music with a laptop and you're looking for a controller that won't break the bank or your back then you should buy an LPD8.  Unless, of course, you need piano keys, in which case you should buy the MPK-Mini.
