What customers say about "Key Specs"
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • Keys have nice grip to them
  • The piano itself sounds excellent at this price point. I played several models at a music store, and this one beat nearly all of them. I think the Yamaha P115 sounded better, but only ever so slightly.
  • It has the weighted keys, which the piano teacher said was a must, comes with the stool, stand,-everything you see in the picture.
  • When I first got this piano, I thought it sounded great (especially through headphones) and the keys felt great. I felt like the keys would play a bit too loudly even when I was playing softly but not a big deal.
  • Unusually large gap between white and black keys, sometimes my fingernails get caught in there. Ouch.
Yamaha P115 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano
  • I bought this with hesitation because I wasn't sure if I needed a full keyboard at first but now I'm very happy I did because while it is more expensive than getting a keyboard with fewer keys I won't have to buy another piano later on when I want to expand the music I play.
  • I love the weighted keys, it is very similar to playing an actual piano
  • The keyboard is just like a grand piano without the bulk. Sounds beautiful and invades minimum space.
  • Excellence sound and versatility. Great feel and response.
  • I love the tone this has. It is most like having a piano in the house without taking up space. Love using ear buds to play at any time I choose.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • Very easy to remove keyboard from stand and transport
  • Because of the size, this package will be sorted differently. It's called an irreg and its handled differently.
  • I'm sure I will upgrade the bench at some point to something with storage or a larger size, but right now it works just fine.
  • The digital piano is the perfect size for the space; the stand seems to be solid wood; the keyboard is a full size piano keyboard
  • Didn't expect it to be so big, but size didn't really bug me. Don't get me wrong, this is a solid piano, but I would just recommended to save up and buy a better one.
Yamaha P115 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano
  • It's a great keyboard for practice or even portable enough to take to some local gigs.
  • The sound and portability of the keyboard are also huge selling points for me. I would recommend it to anyone of any level!
  • It's a great size, and while heavy, fits on a lightweight X-stand well.
  • I wanted a digital piano because of its small size, the ability to control volume or play with headphones, and the midi connectivity.
  • It's sturdy and feels solid. Mostly plastic. Full size keyboard. Once you have it in a good stand it feels even better.

What customers say about "Features"
Casio PX-160 Privia Digital Piano
  • The weight of the keys, the sensitivity of the pedals, and my parents telling me I need to practice more.
  • The pedals work great. (I haven't used the single pedal that also came with it as I got the package with the '3 pedals'.) It sounds gorgeous!
  • Comes with small clips to hold the pedal cord behind the right leg, and I tied up the power adapter behind the back board.
  • Piano wobbles while playing big passages. Makes it a little harder to impress your friends
  • Sheet music stand feels cheap and is not adjustable. Also can't be used if the keyboard is up against a wall
Yamaha P115 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano
  • Now that my daughters are taking guitar, drums, and piano I am super appreciative of this feature. You can also change it to drum rhythm which is more fun than the metronome sound.
  • The recording feature is very limited, but is occasionally useful for getting something down quick.
  • Built in speakers are nice as well. Great performance/travel instrument or home instrument.
  • The built in speakers aren’t half bad. I am OCD about speakers and amps, but happy that they do just fine. Less space and easier setup this way for bedroom practicing.
  • Digital Keyboard Controller App is only available in IOS. To use all of the features on the system, the app is pretty much the only feasible way to adjust the settings. I run android and am out of luck, or have to buy an iPad... aarg.
