The Casio Privia PX 330 is spectacular for the price. The touch is wonderful (a fellow accompanist played it and immediately said I got an awesome deal). If you don't need something with tons of complicated buttons and settings, this is the way to go.


UTILIZATION

I easily hooked it up to my computer recording software - the directions in the manual are easy to understand. I got it specifically for the purpose of using it with my computer and because it has built in speakers that face out toward the people and toward me. It can also be hooked into a PA system or a just a free standing speaker with a 1/4" cable .Even has a stand for music plus at only 25lbs. I can carry it myself!

SOUNDS


The piano sounds and keyboard feel is really top notch. So far the only complaints are the buttons are hard to read in a dimly lit room or stage. And that you cannot turn off the internal speakers when hooking it up to a really good set of monitors. If you try putting a plug in the headphone jack to mute the speakers you get an expanded stereo/reverb out that sounds great through headphones but not good at all through speakers. That really was bad design decision.

OVERALL OPINION

I looked constantly for a mid-range priced keyboard (meaning I was desperately hoping I could find something decent for under 1k). I was hoping to spend around 600 tops. The quality and sound of this blew me away immediately so I bought it after seeing it for less than 15 minutes. It took me an hour to check out all 250 sounds and they are all incredible. The weighted keys are perfect for adding dynamics easily to your playing. If you play them soft they are surprisingly very quiet and if you pound them, they sound like you're pounding a piano. I can't say enough good things about this. I'm so glad that I found this. It really is a steal.
