You won't get a great poly AT action for 500 quid, that's just not happening.
Looked at it in more detail: Yes it does indeed a lot of things right, if you are looking for an all-in-one product. I would consider a 61-key synth-action edition, if it was lighter (rugged plastic shell would be fine for me if that saved weight). I don't really need all those pots and faders--they don't accept MIDI feedback, so they are pretty useless for DAW use and only waste space as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure my requirements are a little unusual but all I need is a simple 61-key synth action controller with nice keys, nothing more., Roland got pretty close with their A-49--just add poly AT and an extra octave and I'm sold.
