Gearank Recommendation

The PSR-E263 appeared on our recommended list for Portable Keyboards Under $500 from April 2020 until October 2020.

Unfortunately this is no longer available new, for other options look at our guide to The Best Portable Keyboards.


There’s no stopping Yamaha in the entry-level keyboard market, and the PSR-E263 is helping them big time with its high ratings.

It has a 61-key full-size synth action keybed along with a wealth of sound options and practice features that are ideal for learning the instrument.

Yamaha is not one to skimp on features even in their entry level line, so they packed this arranger keyboard with 400 voices and 112 songs.

It also comes with the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) that helps you practice playing the many included preset songs.

Other features include built-in effects, headphone out, aux in, duo keyboard mode and more.

It’s hard to go wrong with a Yamaha keyboard, especially those with very high ratings like the PSR-E263.
