Samson Graphite 49 - keyboard players' opinion?

Yesterday, I stumbled over this controller keyboard again.
I was testing the launchkey in a shop (well, you can always just test the keys without sound, no idea how much of a "test" they can do within a shop!).
The launchkey turned out to be just another meh keybed in the dodgy controller keyboard market.

Then I turned to the Graphite 49 once more and thought the keys feel rather nice, compared to everything else there was.
The controller section looks very good too, and it has a midi out port, which makes it win over the launchkey as well, without costing a lot more.

Does anyone have studio experiences with the Graphite 49? How does it "play" in a real environment?
Asking especially other keyboard players, how well does it play for you?

Gear interested

I have Samson Graphite 49. The keybed is a bit too stiff for me and a bit noisy. Also drum-pads velocity is not consistent. Other than that it's OK. The keybed is still better than many other cheap controllers.
