I have had a Casio keyboard for nearly two years to teach myself to play the piano. I was very pleased with this, but found when I tried playing on friends' real pianos the feel of real keys and hammers was very different to the keyboard and this threw me somewhat. Having read previous reviews of this model I went for it. I wanted the graded weighted keys and a full length keyboard, but as compact as possible. I am utterly delighted with it. It is beautifully made and a joy to play on. The keys feel very much like a real piano and it sounds superb, especially if played through a decent amp and external speakers. In fact it is better than a real piano because it takes up hardly any space, never needs tuning, and I can also play it as an organ or harpsichord or strings. It is in stereo, so the high notes sound on the right and the low notes on the left. The attention to detail is amazing. There is even a very very faint sort of sigh sound as you press the piano sustain pedal (included) which is the sound of the "dampers" lifting away from the "strings". Forget Casio as makers of cheap electronic stuff, this is real quality. I could not be more pleased, and can recommend this to anyone who wants a full size piano, but does not have the room for a real one.
you can purchase casio privia px 350 for 499 with stand and extras from chase direct!! have not purchase but try in shop this is a great keyboard to learn on and it has the same HA as the 350 and the 5s. i personaly feel the 350 is the best buy for the money, The 5s for flexibility and sound control. i feel px 150 should be priced lower seeing as you can pick up the px 350 just under 500
