    I used to have a 6′ grand piano but had to sell it when moving to a smaller house. I bought the Privia as a substitute. I’m a moderate level pianist who plays for pleasure only. I’m quite pleased with this instrument. The sound is credible and I like the fact that there are some different sounds available, even though it’s not terribly important to me. I especially like having an organ sound for playing hymns.

    Like others, I find the hammer noise of the keys a bit annoying, especially when I have the volume turned down although using headphones or playing it louder eliminates this issue. The “touch” for the piano is also a bit heavy which may bother some.

    The lack of bells and whistles is actually a plus for me. Because I don’t want them, it allows me to have a keyboard that is smaller and looks more like a standard piano.

    All in all, I highly recommend this piano to those looking for an acoustic replacement.

    (One issue I had is that the description of the instrument lists that it comes “with stand”. It, however, does not. Amazon made this right for me but buyers should be aware that this price is for the keyboard only, despite the description.)

    I am very new to piano playing so I don’t have much to compare with. Overall I think the piano is good. I have two complaints:

    1) As others have said the tangents are very noisey when you release them. If you go to a shop to try out the piano be sure you can live with that. Also beware that it may sound not as bad in the shop as at home as the shop may be a big room with allot of noise.

    2) The metronome is not very loud compared to the piano itself. As a beginner you may want to turn down the volume of the piano to not anoy other people with your playing. But then the metronome may be almost impossible to hear. It would have been great if the volumes could be independently adjusted.

    The piano is just okay. The speakers are weak, but sounds nice with headphones on. The keys are quite noisy while playing which can be distracting and takes away from the joy of playing, but, again, with headphones on it is not so noticeable.

    Casio has redeemed itself from the “lightup” keyboards that are honestly nothing more than toys. Fearing the quality of this instrument would be similar to their other models, I spent a lot of time considering Yamaha’s selection at music stores. While the sound was great, the keys on many of their models within a price range of $600 weren’t weighted and just didn’t feel like an actual grand piano. Then I came upon the Casio Privia PX-110. The keys were weighted properly according to each register and the sound was simply amazing. I managed to purchase this for approx. $400.00 online and have been using it for well over a year now. The instrument is portable and offers a great value and experience for pianists of all levels. While the 32 note polyphony does have its limitations (i.e. laying your forearms across the keys will result in only a few scattered notes) I highly doubt I will need anything higher with music of traditional genres; since it can keep up with prokofiev and rachmaninoff, I doubt there will be much of a problem. The upgraded version of the PX-110 has very few differences. One other key feature is the headphone outlet. For those in cramped quarters, or the pianist who wishes to practice late in the night without disturbing others, this feature is excellent; alongside the recording option which allows you to playback your performances. From my recollection, there were only a few more instrument sounds available. Since most people shopping for an instrument like this want a professional quality digital piano, I don’t think the lack of a banjo sound will affect the purchase decion. In essence, this instrument is exactly what I was looking for. Something that’s portable, sounds great, touch sensitive, and capable of demanding pieces in the classical repertoire. I highly recommend this digital piano.

    Word to the wise, it is possible to damage the instrument (obviously any instrument). I accidentally dropped the piano a while back and almost the entire keyboard register was unhinged from the hammers. The good thing about this instrument is that you can take it apart and fix any mechanical problem quite easily. Granted, if issues arise with regards to electronics, you might have some problems. Like any musical instrument, the highest care should be taken with it at all times. I hope to find a case for it soon if one exists.

    As a kid I learned how to play on a real piano for 8 years. I bought this keyboard three months ago wanting to play more and have been very satisfied so far.

    Pros:

    1. The tri-element ZPI casio menions makes the keys pressure sensitive so that when you play softly or loud it will sound that way.

    2. Metronome comes in handy

    3. Easy-to-use record button lets you playback what you just played during practice

    4. Comes with a practice pianobook with 59 pieces including 3-4 of the more popular Chopin, Schubert, Schumannn, Bach, Mozart, Debussy, Beethoven pieces and some lighter ones like The Entertainer.

    5. Overall great sound for this price range

    Cons:

    1. Having previously played mostly on a grand piano, the keys here don’t feel completely weighted, but it isn’t difficult to adjust.

    2. 10 tones (2 grand pianos, 2 electric pianos, 1 harpsichord, 1 vibraphone, 1 pipe organ, 1 percussion organ, 1 strings/violin, 1 acoustic bass) may be limited amount for some

    I am a novice with pianos. The piano was bought for my son to learn. His instructor was insistent on him having a real piano to learn on. So we were looking for an economical alternative. The digital piano was the perfect fit. The piano is light and it sounds really great. For the price it cannot be beat. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a piano but cannot afford an acoustic one. The key action is very realistic. My son really enjoys playing on a real piano. A keyboard just does not compare. The quality of construction is great. We ended up having to get the custom stand for it. A regular generic stand just would not work.

    I purchased this after a bit of research, and found that the Casio PX series is pretty highly reviewed. I was looking for an inexpensive piano that had a realistic sound and feel, and was full length. The PX110 fit the bill.

    The sound is really nice from this digital piano, although the speakers are NOT very good. The sound is excellent through my headphones. I hook mine up to some different speakers when I play for others, and it sounds great.

    It doesn’t have a lot of special features, but I wasn’t looking for anything that did. The weighted keys do have some “clack” noise when you press them, but since they’re weighted, I kind of expected that.

    The only thing I don’t like about it is the sustain pedal. It works well, but the sound it makes when the plastic is pressed is loud and distracting. I purchased a different one from […]

    I would give this 3 – 4 stars.

    I bought this item to fit into my very small New York apartment – (I have a grand piano in a country house). Once I got used to it, I enjoyed it – it has a very good tone and touch (weighted keys), but there is a slight problem in that there is an underlying ‘clacking’ sound to the keys, which I find a little annoying. Also, the pedal is somewhat disappointing. All the same, I like it and am very pleased to have it.

    I have been “playing” a piano for 30 years, but I am not any sort of accomplished musician. I am mostly self-taught. But I know what a real piano feels like and how it sounds. My main piano is a 10 year old upright with a very satisfactory action and bright sound. The Casio comes very close to feeling the same and sounds even better. I have no complaints. I love it. I especially like the touch of the keyboard, with lighter weighting on the high notes and heavier weighting on the low notes. I find myself playing the Casio more often than the upright, simply because I enjoy it more.

    The other reviews explain all the voices and features rather well, so I cannot improve upon that.

    I also purchased the Drive K80 amplifier for playing this Casio with a couple of friends. Drive K80 Keyboard Amplifier That works very well for this purpose.

    For this price, it is a great purchase.

    I bought a Casio PX-110 as a Christmas present for my 15 year old grandson who was learing to play the piano. After 10 months of careful use a single key stopped functioning correctly. I had the credit card receipt for the purchase, but not the original sales receipt. I sent Casio the paperwork I had plus a notarized letter on the circumstances of the purchase, per their request. Casio says they didn’t receive the documents and would not repair it under warranty. They wanted to charge me $257.00 to repair one key, which I declined to do, fearing another key would break, and bought a Yamaha keyboard instead. I feel that it is a serious quality problem when a keyboard breaks in less than a year, and a design problem when it costs over $250 to reair a simple problem.
