I was afraid of that. Keyboard GAS. It exists.
Urrm, Keyboard GAS is actually a serious condition! I've suffered from it for years. Its a vicious circle of buying a keyboard, enjoying it for a year or so and then something comes along to blow it out of the water and you convince yourself you need it, sell your other gear to get it, then that becomes a victim of another purchase and so it goes on. I then took up guitar and the circle began again lol. Now I just have a couple of Midi Controllers controlling a DAW and a bunch of virtual instruments:

So I've got:

Roland A500 Pro (as a master controller) Its a small 49 key controller as I do not have much space but can still do 90% of what I need to play with it.
Akai LPK25 (as a utility controller for doing keyswitches on virtual instruments and trigging things via midi)
Plan to get a larger weighted keyboard soon for more acoustic piano type stuff. For me, virtual software based instruments are the way to go, they are a lot more powerful, better sounding, cheaper and more upgradable & updateable. I still love the hardware variety like the Kronos and Jupiter80 and would love to own one or both of these but just don't like the idea of a very small amount of rom samples to play with, just seems a waste of money.

keyboards I've owned in the past but have been sold have been:

Korg M1
Korg Wavestation
Korg Prophecy
Korg Triton Pro + MOSS board
Korg O1/W Pro X
Roland A90EX
Akai MX76
Studiologic VMK161

Not to mention the Synth and Sampler Rack gear I've owned!

Keyboards I own...

Yamaha PF-P100 (stays at home for practicing on)
Korg SV1 (goes out gigging)
Kurzweil PC361 (goes out gigging)
Roland SH-201 (bought because I wanted some knobs to twiddle, like in the old days)
Roland BK7m (because I might need some accompaniment one day)
Yamaha EZ150 (battery powered, for camping because I don't play guitar!)

GAS? Me? No Way!

Not many;

Roland A90 EX (best thing I ever bought, it's sensationally good at what it does, which isn't alot to be fair, 4th love of my life after wife, rabbits and scuba diving gear)
Kurzweil K2000VP (recently blew up on stage so waiting for an insurance replacement.)
Yamaha CS1X (very rarely produce electronic music anymore so it's basically a master keyboard for my DAW)

Used to own:

Roland XP80 (incredibly versatile but I had to get rid to fund the A90)
Clavia Nord Lead 2 (never got on with it, personally it sounded a bit flimsy, had it signed by the band Embrace, ebayed it and gave money to charity)
Korg Poly 800 (garbage, never liked it)
Roland D10 (not particularly good, but it got me into the Roland interface and I'm still using Rolands now)
Yamaha SS30 (gutted I sold this, but I didn't realise how rare and valuable it was, i was young and stupid)
Yamama DJX (surprisingly awesome for the cash, replaced it with the CS1x)
Korg X3 (garbage, sounded awful and did nothing interesting)
