Avid Keystudio

As i was in need of midi keyboard, after doing some research, i found best would be Avid Keystudio, which offered M-audio keyboard + Pro tools SE and m-audio micro usb audio interface. I got it all just for 85 Euros.

It has a 49 keys, pitch bend, mod wheel, edit button, 2 buttons for octave change and a volume slider - which actually is assignable key. On the back of keyboard, there are power button, sustain pedal connection and usb port. Keyboard feels really plastic, keys are too soft. Pitch bend wheel can get really annoying cause its slipping.
Keyboard dont have a midi ports, but if you need it just to controll VSTi`s than its not a problem.

Pro Tools SE - Dont see a point of this software - you cant event use external VST/VSTi.

M-audio usb micro - One input, one output. 16 bit 48 kHz. Connected it for a test. If i turn my monitors louder, can hear a hiss in background. Even found a use for it - will connect it to my lap top, so i can get latency down a little bit.

You get what you pay for. For the price it`s a good keyboard.
