Summary: This was a little costly but the value is great. The sound is also great along with the wood molding. This is very stylish, and though it's not a grand piano, it's got the nice weighted keys like one and can switch from upright to grand to pipe organ and jazz organ and they all sound excellent (not a cheapy tinsel sound) that you hear in other electric keyboards.
Summary: The Casio AP420 for me was a wonderful buy. The price was the best I could find anywhere. It was delivered to my local store. It arrived in excellent condition and much sooner than I expected. I had to hurry and make room for it. It was easy for my husband to put together. It has given me hours of pleasure. The tone is wonderful and it has the feel of a real piano. I haven't even used all it's bells and whistles yet but I love it.
Summary: I owned an old electric piano which was good for its time-1999. Designs have improved very much since. This piano sounds and feels like an acoustic instrument and has more bells and whistles than I need. It took several minutes to find the package of screws that hold it together. That should be placed where one could find it more easily. The instruction book could be written more clearly when describing how to record a song.
Pros: Fine tone for its size, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
Summary: We had a nice Yamaha keyboard for our sons to use for nightly practice. They have both taken lessons for several years. Since we needed to upgrade to 88 (weighted) keys, we researched best options at an affordable price. Friends in similar situation have this same piano in a previous model/year for a couple of years now and have been very pleased. We are happy with this purchase. The piano was easy to assemble and seems to be true to the description.
Pros: Easy to Use, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys
Summary: I purchased this digital piano because the one I had was out of date. And because I teach piano online and needed something that sounded like a real piano. Well, I wasn't disappointed. The difference between the old Roland and this new Casio is like night and day! The touch is fantastic. The piano sound is fantastic. And since I really only need the piano sound, that was of primary importance to me.
Quality Construction, Lots of Features for the Money

Summary: After years of playing my Yamaha DGX-500, I was looking to upgrade my digital piano to something that had graded hammer action, that would look nice in my living room, and that sounded as close to an acoustic piano as possible. I also wanted to spend around a thousand bucks. The Casio AP420, seemed to fit the bill, and having played other Casio digital pianos in my local music store (PX800, PX330, AP200), I was fairly confident in making this purchase from Amazon,...
