Best usb keyboard 49 keys (no need pads or fancy lights)

Hi there

I'm searching for a good (and if possible cheap) USB or midi keyboard of 49 keys, but I don't need the fancy pads and lights everywhere.

It's for the stage : I only need a good mechanism, a good management of velocity (I'm using presently the Samson Graphite 49 and it's a nightmare regarding velocity : there's huge differences between the keys and sensibility is almost random) and some connection ports (expression, sustain, midi in/out etc.).

Because I don't find any keyboard with usable options (pots and faders) for the stage, my idea is to find a good keyboard for the musical playing and add a Behringer X-Touch mini (that I like very much) for the live tweaking...

It's crazy, but in this size (49 keys) I can't find nothing but crazy christmas trees with cheap keys.
And if I want the midi in/out or the expression port, it becomes a very expansive christmas tree...

I know the good keyboards are usually 61 or 88 keys, but I'm truly searching for a 49 one...

Any idea ?
