I agree with bno that the built in speakers and amp are very thin sounding but for your budget AND if you only want to play it AT HOME this may be a good buy for you. It does puzzle me you found the action stiff.

An update on my friend who bought the Previa 300. He is a steadily gigging musician and his just stopped playing. He didn't drop it and it just stopped playing in the middle of a gig. He sent it back to Casio for repair. This signals to me the Casio is not road worthy or for professional use.

That being said (and back on topic) - having a decent weighted piano style keyboard to play after hours (instead of a synth) has really put the boog back into the woog. And for 500 bills ... it just amazes me how freakin' good "cheap" gear is or is that how cheap good gear is. Anyway. That's my two bit rant on the topic....

2005-04-10T13:22:22+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Casio Privia (to Doc Williamsom)]]> ly for me the hammer action is almost identical to my P-80. If
someone wanted a heavier feel (like a Yamaha) for less $$ this could
be the ticket. They seem well built and look nice too. Contrary to
what I said in a previous post, all the models in this line have
built-in speakers. I played it for about a half-hour, but couldn't
really make a judgement as to sound quality, (there was the usual
din of a Guitar Center on a Sat. afternoon). I'm sure there are
other issues with these as well, better left to the more knowledgeable
to discuss, but if one needs a decent sounding digital piano at
about half the price (the PX-100 is 499.00 at G.C.) you might wanna
check it out. I guess I'll continue my love-hate thing with my
P-80 till I can afford a Roland RD-170. (There's only one left
in my region of Guitar Centers, and it's a floor model), the
guy said he'd let it go for 850.00, just out of my present
reach :-( Mike

2005-04-07T04:18:13+00:00 <![CDATA[Casio Privia (to Doc Williamsom)]]> where you mentioned the Korg Pervia (or something like that) I
suspect you were in a hurry and meant Casio Privia. Am I right?
At any rate this is vey interesting- At first I was a bit put
off by the name, but went to harmonycentral and read some reviews,
and it don't sound bad. Generally, the cats who reviewed it there
give it an O.K. (though not great, or in the class of Yammys or
Rolands), a couple of them really liked the action, they all liked the
weight (20 some-odd lb.s!) and of course the price. Unfortunately,
this right now has become a big issue for me, and as you know,
I am presently obsessed with finding something easier on my old
fingers. As you mentioned, there are several models, the lowest
priced is the PX-100 with no whistles, bells nor built-in speakers.
You can get a brand new one on ebay now for 400.00 plus shipping.
I gotta get my arse into the city and test drive one of these.
Oh yeah, one of the more expensive models has the keys that light
up as a teaching tool- maybe fun to mess with, but I wouldn't
think a good approach for the aspiring Blues player ;-) As for
the Casio name, if I can find an axe that feels right I don't care
if they call it a Studebaker! Mike
