Summary: I bought this as a first piano to re-learn playing after not playing any piano since grade school. My first few weeks with it were quite a bit frustrating. The keys are extremely heavy, even compared to a regular upright piano, and have a very nasty pistonish noise. Also, the touch sensitivity of the keys seemed weird and hard to regulate. After those few weeks, I got a good professional studio headphone, and... all my frustrations were gone in a second.
Summary: I am delighted with my purchase. This digital piano is truly a piano first, and 'digital' second. I have played only uprights all my life, and was nervous about selling mine and trading in for a digital version. But I must say, the keys mimic real piano keys almost perfectly, and the sounds are out of this world.
Summary: This piano is awesome! I've been having the biggest aspiration to learn piano and finaly I decided on this one after looking others online, even at the music stores where I live. I've picked up on piano so quick and I think its because of the nice feeling of the weighted keys, like a grand piano. The sustain pedal that came with mine works great and people say it slides everywhere but it really does not. The pedal Im referring to can be seen on amazon.
Summary: I just received my Casio PX-130 within two days and I am thrilled with my purchase. I lost my first piano many years ago because of a divorce and never thought I would be able to take up playing again. I looked at keyboards with lots of special effects but decided I really wanted a full 88 keys to just relearn to play piano again. I purchased a package that included the stand and pedals attachment.
Summary: Phew, where to start on this review? Perhaps my background. I'm not a pianist, yet. I've actually been a guitarist for many years and not a very good one. Heheheheheh. I came to find it just isn't MY instrument. I can bang out indie, rock and alt tunes with the best of them but I wouldn't say I possess Page/Hendrix virtuosity. During my journey with guitar I took up piano as a sort of competitive game with a friend who took it up at the same time.
Summary: I have been looking for a reasonably priced DP. I played this, the yamaha p-95 and two korgs. This casio did not make the cut. I previously owned a yamaha clp-175 which was way too much piano for my skills. The 130 fell of the radar because of the piano sounds. Now, to be fair, maybe the 130 on display was older,but, sound-wise, it was dreadful. Period. Even the 120 sounded better to my ear. I have played music for 40 years, and this did not come close.
Summary: I know very little about music and instrument except having not-very-bad ears. Bought this Casio PX-130 88-Key Digital Stage Piano for kid to start learning piano and it runs very well so far. I can not provide any professional comments on this instrument. Buy simply looking at it and listening to the sound from it, it is good. It has high-quality looking and clean sound. The scaled hammer action keyboard helps kid to get the feeling of acoustic piano.
Casio PX-130 88 key Excellent value. This is as good as it gets for a keyboard.

Summary: I bought this keyboard for my son to practice piano. He is under 10, and this is perfect with the weighted keys and sound quality. For little kids, our piano teacher recommended it so his fingers will build muscle to use a real piano and the sound is almost identical. It is the best I found on Amazon for the price.
Summary: Having not owned a piano - acoustic or electric - for a very long time, I was really excited to get the Casio PX-130. I've spent months reading reviews and checking out blogs online to make sure I knew everything first and for the money and the size (anything less than 88 keys would not do) I think I made a good decision.
