    I can't speak for that particular model... but I own a Nektar SE25 (tiny little backpack keyboard) and a Panorama P1 for mixing, both from Nektar as well as their NP-1 & NX-P foot controllers and I've never had a problem with them. Seem well built and do exactly what I want them to do. I went with the Arturia MiniLab Mk II, when I needed to buy a controller with Pads like that Impact has, but I didn't need more than the 25 keys that it provided as I use a full size Casio Privia with weighted keys when I need to record with a keyboard. So anyhow, my experience with Nektar is that they seem to make good quality products, it just depends on what your needs are in regards to features. Hope this helps a bit.

    I got the Nekt and it seems decent. good for the money.
    One thing you might know... when you are using a vitrual inst.
    from software on the 49+,the oscillator is in play whether you like it or not. In otherwords you can tune the keys up and down. I put it in default but it is still adjustable. So the exact tuning is up to the player. I found that exactly .50 on the display seemed to be the base correct tune. Like an acoustic piano would be tuned.Does that make sense or am I missing something....I am just learning about midi keyboards..
