M-Audio isn't bad, but check E-Mu, Novation and Korg keyboards too.
The middle-category modells aren't so expensive.

i hear you Van Deka,

Korg MicroKontrol does have some downsides, first of all, the keys are tiny as hell, its almost impossible to use, you need girly midget hands for that thing for sure, but on the other hand its small, compact and definately gets the job done. Dont expect it to replace a full-scale piano, and dont rely on faders too much. I have MicroKontrol and must say while frustrating at times, the best option for the money, if you have 200 to spend.

no?

^ what he said
good soundcard but if you don't need one and want some sliders and pads for triggering pads and effects (and as you've checked M-Audio to an extent) you could try the Axiom (http://www.dv247.com/invt/32482/) too.
hard on your budget but well worth the layout. only downside may be the size of knobs but that's personal preference.

I have the XBoard 61 (someday I want to perform live in my band), and it works smoothly (with Reason at least)! It's my first keyboard, so I don't have any comparison material. But I'm satisfied with it.

I've got an M Audio Radium 49 that i use to control both Ableton and Logic (but used to control FL). It has now been replaced, but M Audio equipment is great and very affordable
