I started playing piano when I was a kid, but only took lessons for a couple years. I recently was in a car accident, however, and was laid up for quite a while. I felt like rewarding myself so I was looking around for a toy that could keep me busy, but was also sort of productive. Almost bought a ps3 but figured the money would be better spent on something that I could actually develop a skill with.

I bought this from Musician's Fried for about $400. I bought it online and it came with free shipping.

I haven't really played many of these. I knew the Casio name because I had an old portable years ago and that's primarily why I bought it. I also figured four hundred was probably a good price to pay. Not too much, but not so cheap I was getting a poor product. I think the thing I like the most is the feel of the keys. This thing feels like a real piano, but is really lightweight and portable. There are also different sensitivity levels so you can adjust to your liking.

Not much to dislike, but think for the price they could have included a sustainer pedal. There's a jack for it, but how could it have cost them to just throw one in. I guess it's not a big deal, but you asked..

Decent quality, relatively well built. The unit is pretty light, I think the manual says it's about twenty six pounds or so. The fit and finish is pretty good, though, and there are no odd spaces or parts that don't fit together well. Who knows. Ask me in a year or so after I've had a chance to bang it around a few times. Casio keyboards have a pretty good reputation in my opinino.

Get one, you won't be disappointed. It's a good price point for someone who's more serious than a beginner, but not an accomplished virtuoso.
