What customers say about "Key Specs"
Williams Allegro 2 Plus Full-Size Digital Piano
  • The Williams Allegro 2 is an 88-key, full-sized keyboard, with true hammer action weighted feel. Both the sound and feel are very much like that of a full size acoustic piano.
  • The sound library and effects are not as extensive as many other digital keyboards, but they are excellent, and for a true life-like piano sound, it's pretty hard to beat this keyboard.
  • This is a good weighted keyboard for the price. It has an over all good realist sounds. The grand piano is sampled from the Italian "Fazioli". The other sounds are Wurlitzer and a Hammond organ.
  • The weighted feel of the keys is good enough for a beginner.
  • It plays like an acoustic piano, with its' fully weighted keys. Keys are even an ivory color and feel, rather than plastic construction of less expensive models.
  • Compared to others, the sound isn't that great. The keys are also not heavy enough, leading to light notes still being played somewhat loudly if you use any force to press down the keys.
  • The sound lacks the same hammer punch when pressing one key over and over amd responds inconsistent tones when hitting the same key even when the powered threw an external amp.
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • The keys feel like a real piano and get pushed down like one. Looks sleek and is well designed! It's a professional instrument that certainly keeps you motivated to keep on learning!
  • A nice keyboard to practise on. Perfect for DAW usage. The piano sound won't win any prizes, but its not bad especially with a little reverb on. The keys have a nice weight to them.
  • Beautiful-sounding piano and makes learning a real joy. Really pleased with the quality of the piano, the weighted-keys and sound is superb
  • Absolutely great for its price. The weighted hammer keys felt really natural and the sounds it produce are quite good. It has been nearly 9 months now and I still do not see any signs of deterioration.
  • Sounds great. Very nice weighted keys.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Williams Allegro 2 Plus Full-Size Digital Piano
  • I would say that the Allegro 2 has a rather light weighted and good piano touch.
  • It's lightweight enough well made and not feel cheap.
  • It's lighter than most keyboards of its type, which is really nice.
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • It's full size, though still fairly lightweight and easy to move around. Not too many confusing buttons and settings, great sound and I love playing it.
  • I'm a guitar player trying to learn a bit of keyboard and music theory, and I wanted something simple, but with decent piano sound and a full size keyboard with a good feel to it.
  • Looks sleek and is well designed! It's a professional instrument that certainly keeps you motivated to keep on learning!
  • My only downside is the foot pedal doesn't have any feel of weight or presence to it, being a small, plastic sustain pedal.

What customers say about "Features"
Williams Allegro 2 Plus Full-Size Digital Piano
  • Features: multi-voices, recording capability and 10 song library (good for sound check if you are short handed).
  • Another nice feature to help you tailor the sound are the Bass and Treble EQ settings. there are many nice features and adjustments so you can make the Allegro 'your own' as you play!
  • One fun feature is that you can divide the keyboard into 2 sections and setup an instrument on each one.
  • Not having a power adapter is also a minus.
  • A pedal, a power cord.... NOT INCLUDED. ONLY A KEYBOARD!!
Casio CDP-130 Digital Piano
  • You should note of course, the lack of stand as most people tend to already have one and the Pedal is a little flimsy but still perfectly functional.
  • The sound is great and it looks fantastic on the Casio CS-44PC5 Piano Stand which I bought along with it.
  • Music stand works a treat. Spot on for anyone!
  • The headphones plug in point is effective to stop any disturbance to the family. Without waffling on, in my opinion, this is a cheap and basic digital piano for those eager to explore the idea of playing the piano without spending a great deal of money.
  • The pedal that comes with it is fairly cheap feeling but you can get a nice alternative very cheap.
