Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've owned a Casio keyboard for about 20 years, it's given excellent service and has always sounded good. So it was interesting to hear what this new one sounded like - we have not been disappointed. The various instrument sounds it makes are not bad. It's touch sensitive and enables you to change expression just by pressure. There's a good bank of rhythms to play along to. Some 500 different tones and a piano / organ button. It will record you and you can extend its versatility by connecting to a computer with relavent software (though not done this). This is a very enjoyable instrument to play. It comes with it's power pack and music rest, though no foot peddle. For beginners, there is a teaching tool you can sign up to that is said to be very good.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This keyboard has over 100 different modes, but the piano is probably the one you will use the most, and fortunately it sounds wonderful. I'm old enough to remember when the tinny bleep that came out of these things was a laughable digital approximation of what a real piano sounded like. The sound quality of this keyboard deserves five stars, even if I have given it only four stars overall.

The keys respond to a very light touch, with hardly any resistance, which is nothing like a real piano. Indeed, I might go so far as to say they feel a little flimsy. I was a little wary of being too vigorous on the attack, but that might be because I simply have more experience of real keys. That said, the keyboard didn't receive any damage despite several direct assaults from the cat (the briefest of which occurred when the keyboard was turned on at the time).

As well as displaying which mode you're in, the screen highlights which key you are pressing on a map of the keyboard, and also plots the specific note on the staves displayed for both treble and bass clefs. This would certainly be handy for beginners learning to read music, helping them to find notes, but in the longer term could also prove a little too tempting to rely upon rather than learning to sight-read.

The keyboard has dozens of pre-programmed songs to play along with, but it's difficult to hear your own playing in the mix. Two songbooks come in the box, with most of the songs aimed at intermediate-level players, but with some more challenging pieces as well. And yes, the box also contains a mains adaptor, even if it says on the outside that it doesn't.

As with all instruments, if you can try before you buy, do.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I obtained this on a whim really as I wanted to teach myself musical theory and also to learn some tunes. This keyboard is brilliant and I would throughly recommend it. At it's most basic it's a very efficient keyboard, however it will allow you to do much more then simply play music. The screen tells you exactly what note you are playing and where it appears on the grand staff. It will also teach you how to play tunes, the keyboard comes with a very large library of tunes and it will teach you how play them step by step. If I had one criticism then I would say that the pure scale of buttons on options can be a little intimidating and reading the instructions first will help. If you want a basic keyboard and you will only use it for the keyboard then I'm sure there are more cheaper, more basic ones out there. However this is a keyboard that will help you learn efficiently and at your own pace. It takes me forever to learn new things and so going back and repeating lessons is helpful, it will only move on when you are ready. It is also very lightweight and, despite it's size, it very easy to transport.

I love it! The very best choice for the first piano! Build-in lessons literally replacing the tutor.
