UTILIZATION

The hit is very nice, not too heavy (but comparable to some piano), linear smooth, maybe a little slow (to rise) for use classique.Touches quality, flawless finish.
The general configuration uses the keyboard, a little quirky, but once adjusted to suit individual needs, I do not think we touched ay (using the manual useful).
No patch, selection of instruments / rhythms by direct buttons (using PC / sysex possible).
No display, so the choice of reverb / chorus to the ear (or MIDI).
The manual is very clear and full MIDI implementation / Sysex site Casio

SOUNDS

The sounds are great and can be edited via MIDI, so I think it will fit any style of violin playing music.The keyboard heavy, I see no point (that sounds weird and more).
The effects are effective and can be edited via MIDI.
There are 4 levels of velocity but no aftertouch (except MIDI).
The Grand Piano1 is, the 2 is more muffled (but needs improvement), the Harpsichord no interest.

OVERALL OPINION

I 15 days ago (thank you Santa Claus ...)
The keyboard (hit) is the highlight, the lack of display is unfortunate.
I tried all the keyboards of the store (even more expensive) and the PX110 was what I was looking for in terms of hit (the first criterion, I use it with expanders, therefore less important for the sounds). In same price range, I selected the CME UF8, but the hit is execrable (feeling hard spot, down in 2 stages) and the quality of the first models is zero (plastics, electronics ...)
The price / quality ratio is very good. There is no dbeaucoup of choice in this price range and I apreciated increasing gradually as I discovered.
A nice surprise and I would do this choice without hesitation.
