Outstanding piano for multiple reasons -- built like a tank.
I own three acoustic pianos (grand, tall upright and small spinet). This piano action (PHA4 Standard Action) is not as good as the Roland RD800 action (PHA4 Concert Action), but it is almost as good. Additionally, it is better than my upright and spinet but not my grand piano. What I love most about this piano is that it is rugged and almost twenty pounds lighter than my RD800. Very solid piano. I practice with it about an hour or so a day, because if I can nail it on this piano, I can nail it on any piano I play. So it's a fantastic practice piano. I only use the traditional piano sounds because I have a Nord E5 that supplies most of the other sounds I need. Much of the time I use this keyboard as a MIDI controller into my Nord, but when I don't need the sounds from my Nord, I just bring this -- and it works great. On high-paying gigs, I bring my RD800, but I'm tired of carrying that around, so the FP-30 is here to stay -- and likely to become the first piano I take. I believe this is a great first piano, student piano, college dorm room piano, spare corner in a bedroom piano -- and it's a good gigging piano too! I wish it had standard two 1/4" jack outputs and a standard five-pin MIDI IN and MIDI OUT (and thru), but there are cables made by HOSA (and others) that take care of this design decision handily. I'm shocked that I love the blue tooth MIDI capabilities and I have it paired to my iPhone, which greatly expands this low priced piano with more modern features. They could greatly expand this piano with additional software, and I hope they do. So, this piano gets ten stars: great beginning piano, great student piano, rugged gigging piano and enough features to keep you busy practicing. It weighs five more pounds than a lot of other DPs, but it feels much more rugged and the action takes lots of hours of playing -- without loosening. I really like Casio too, especially the 350M and the 560. But I highly recommend this DP because it feels like it will last. I'm playing on a 350 as well, and like it very much. I have had no problems whatsoever with the 350 (and love the sounds too), but the FP-30 is built like a tank. Time will tell!
