Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Acoustic

Acoustic:
"Years later I finally decided I needed a piano again, but unfortunately did not have room for a full acoustic in my apartment."
_
"The keys feel amazing--lighter near the top, heavier near the bottom--the sound quality is as good (if not better) than my acoustic piano, and it never needs tuning, which will save me hundreds of dollars over the coming years."
_
"The feel of the keys is like a real acoustic piano and I really love listening to the built in songs."
_
"The acoustic piano sounds are wonderful, but I really bought this keyboard for the electric piano sounds."
_
"It just amazes me those rinky-dink keyboards have finally come to the point of being a reasonable substitute for an acoustic."
_
"Mind you, none of the voicings were state of the art, true to acoustic instrument sounds but they were fun."

Headphone

Headphone:
"After those few weeks, I got a good professional studio headphone, and... all my frustrations were gone in a second."
_
"However, the reason why I only gave it 4 stars is because of the speakers, and because of its cryptic song format.1- The speakers are really not very good, compared to the sound you can get on your headphones at least (which I almost always use, so it is no big deal).2- Nobody has commented on the transfer of songs to your computer."
_
"Also, the headphone jack is not as durable as well constructed 1 4 inch jack."
_
"This instrument feels and sounds great, and it also has a headphone plug in case you don't want to distract the neighbors or anyone else."
_
"I compared many keyboards, and read some reviews that had some negative points about this keyboard, so I was a bit hesitant, but I found them not to be true: the keys don't click and although the sound may be better with the headphones, the speakers are still really good - not a major concern at all."
_
"After those few weeks, I got a good professional studio headphone, and... all my frustrations were gone in a second."
_
"I love the feature that facilitates the use of the headphones and that there are less features than a keyboard because I want her to focus seriously on her piano exams."
_
"The audio through the headphones is great."

Keyboard

Keyboard:
"The biggest downside of this keyboard is the lack of a MIDI output, and in the process of trying to get around that I accidentally ran phantom power into the keyboard and damaged it (immediately after the warranty had ended).My overall experience, though, has been that for its price its a very good keyboard."
_
"It also has a lot of features I didn't expect, like the ability to sound like all sorts of other types of keyboards and adjustments for if one wasn't quite satisfied with the sound."
_
"I compared many keyboards, and read some reviews that had some negative points about this keyboard, so I was a bit hesitant, but I found them not to be true: the keys don't click and although the sound may be better with the headphones, the speakers are still really good - not a major concern at all."
_
"Let me explain for a moment; MIDI In Out is so common in instruments, that even the crappiest of crappy keyboards incorporate it."
_
"The biggest downside of this keyboard is the lack of a MIDI output, and in the process of trying to get around that I accidentally ran phantom power into the keyboard and damaged it (immediately after the warranty had ended).My overall experience, though, has been that for its price its a very good keyboard."
_
"The ease of carrying this keyboard was seductive - and made the instrument too good to be true."
_
"We finally upgraded to an upright piano today only b c the sound quality can't quite be matched (and my son's ear now needs the upgrade)...but for a keyboard at this price, the Casio totally exceeded our expectations."
_
"If you don't have a lot of money to throw around and want those 88 keys so you don't have to try cramming a nice piece of sheet music you have on to a smaller keyboard, I highly recommend this keyboard."
_
"This keyboard was a great buy."

Pedal

Pedal:
"Also, I would recommend getting the add on pedal as the plastic one it comes with is not that great."
_
"Cons:Included pedal is flimsy and cheap feeling."
_
"- The pedal board is not good."
_
"It produces great sound, and when combined with the Casio keyboard stand and pedal board is wonderful! "
_
"Smooth dynamic tonal changes and works well with pedal."
_
"I also got the stand and foot pedal for this and it looks great."
_
"I love the way they did the sustain pedal, you can feel the resonance like in a real piano."
_
"The sustain pedal that came with mine works great and people say it slides everywhere but it really does not."

Price

Price:
"Cons:Included pedal is flimsy and cheap feeling."
_
"The sound quality is without a doubt the best in its price range, ditto for authentic touch and weight of the keys."
_
"The piano sound is pretty nice, but obviously this is a relatively cheap keyboard, so its not amazing."
_
"I was worried the keys would feel cheap."
_
"The biggest downside of this keyboard is the lack of a MIDI output, and in the process of trying to get around that I accidentally ran phantom power into the keyboard and damaged it (immediately after the warranty had ended).My overall experience, though, has been that for its price its a very good keyboard."

_
"For the price, it is a great investment."

Quality

Quality:
"Of course you can just use an adapter, but the quality is not as good and the connection itself is not neary as sturdy."
_
"The sound quality is without a doubt the best in its price range, ditto for authentic touch and weight of the keys."
_
"However, a common theme in the reviews I read for the Yamahas in the price range I wanted to spend was that external speaker quality was not that good."
_
"The quality of the keyboard is amazing."
_
"The quality is very good as well."
_
"But the sound quality of the privia px-130 sounds good enough for me to practice and learn piano on."
_
"The keys feel amazing--lighter near the top, heavier near the bottom--the sound quality is as good (if not better) than my acoustic piano, and it never needs tuning, which will save me hundreds of dollars over the coming years."

Sound

Sound:
"Although my skills are just shy of Mozart right now, I have to say that the quality of this digital piano is outstanding: Portability is 5 5--I can move it to my computer desk and play using sheet music online, sound tone 4 5--sounds excellent, but obviously not as good as a real piano, weighted keys 5 5--I can transition with ease to an actual piano and play normally."
_
"The only drawback is the low swooshing sound the keys make when you press them, but it goes away the more you increase the volume or put headphones on."
_
"It also has a lot of features I didn't expect, like the ability to sound like all sorts of other types of keyboards and adjustments for if one wasn't quite satisfied with the sound."
_
"Con:Okay sound samples, not the perfect sounds for picky ears, especially toward lower notes."
_
"The built-in speaker is second-rate even on full volume - playing on anything less than full volume is something I seriously recommend against, it will sound like epic failure."
_
"The keys are weighted to feel like a proper piano (almost too much, but it sure beats the average keyboard), it's a full 88 keys, and the sound of the default modern piano is pretty crisp."
_
"Sounds great."
_
"The sounds other than the piano tones are good, much like other recordings of organs etc."
_
"I'm no pro but this piano has a really nice sound."
_
"It produces great sound, and when combined with the Casio keyboard stand and pedal board is wonderful! "

"However, a common theme in the reviews I read for the Yamahas in the price range I wanted to spend was that external speaker quality was not that good."
_
"I use the phones-out to drive 2 large powered speakers when playing in my Jazz-Fusion band and it sounds great there too."
_
"I compared many keyboards, and read some reviews that had some negative points about this keyboard, so I was a bit hesitant, but I found them not to be true: the keys don't click and although the sound may be better with the headphones, the speakers are still really good - not a major concern at all."
_
"The 12 or so instruments work great and sound as good as you're going to get for this price (and certainly better than some of the competing brands at the next price level).Audio-out sounds great, perhaps even better than the speakers built into the keyboard."
_
"Great volume too from the on board speakers."
_
"The speakers are surprisingly good for their size, but if they don't do it for you then you still have the option to hook up the keyboard to a sound system."
