Quite a departure from Yamaha here, as the PSRF51 is a very basic 5-octave (61-note) model, with a few cost-saving ideas incorporated.
Gone is the helpful graphic LCD display (available from the 'YPT' models and above) and, in place is a slightly 'retro' looking LED window where the onboard sounds (120 of them), can be typed in for selection from a printed list on the main panel.
With full sized keys (NOT sensitive) and reverb and chorus effects, the PSRF51 features the important transpose and tuning controls, whilst connectivity is limited as a sustain pedal socket is NOT supported. However, a headphone socket is standard issue in the form of a stereo MINIjack (3.5mm) design.
The PSR-F51 has a multi-fingering mode for left hand accompaniment play, so players can implement single finger or full finger chord methods.
Supplied with a mains adaptor, Yamaha's PSRF51 is extremely easy to use, compact and portable, and Yamaha have clearly designed this model for the budget conscious.
Basic? Yes, but incredibly good value for the classroom.
