Does anybody know if the Samick SU-118 & Young Chang U-121, have these features?

A three-dimensional plate

Ribs mitered into the case

Weighted and balanced keys

Close-grained spruce soundboard

Thanks.

Many plates are advertized as 3D, but few actually are. The only way to tell is to wear 3D glasses.

Its more important how well a piano is made rather than marketing hype about how its made.
