Casio Privia PX-150 Digital Piano Reviews

4.5 stars based on 7 customer reviews
  • from Johnson City, TN USA January 26, 2015Music Background:
    semi-professional songwriter and performer.

    Rich dynamic tone. The best in its price range.

    I use this for performing as a songwriter, writing, and practicing on my own. Excellent tones. My favorites are "Classic," "Concert," "60s Piano," and "Electric Organ 1." The tonality and realism of how a piano feels is really nice. I'm sure there are electric pianos that sound and play better, but this one is fantastic for its price. My pick after looking at Yamaha and Korg models. It just plays better.

    Buy Demo!

    I'm not normally one to leave reviews, but this piano is great. It's got textured--I think they call it Ebony/Ivory Feel--keys. That's not something you'll find in this price range. The hammer action feels a lot like real pianos I've played. The sound is realistic. It's not a super loud keyboard though. I'm getting some studio monitors so I don't mind it, but it could be a consideration for someone needing extra volume.
    This is a solid purchase, especially through Sweetwater. I bought the demo version for $50 cheaper. It looks brand new; I even had to peel off some plastic wrap. And they stand behind it with a 2-year warranty. Which I have nothing but faith in after seeing their customer service. I've been really happy with the entire purchasing process.
    I'd recommend this piano to my friend, I'd recommend this piano through Sweetwater to my Nana.

    I've played music most my life, piano has been primary instrument but I love guitar as well.

    Great Sounding piano.

    The PX 150 has the best piano you can buy for the money. I'm telling you
    she sounds great. And the easy the keyboard feels is better than most let keyboards that cost two times add much. No you get a lot of tones but the ones you get are all good, some18 in all. But the grand piano is super good and there are 4 more that sound great. Then there's the electric piano sounds great classic seventy's piano sounds, and then the electric organ sounds are the as well. Strings are beautiful sounding and there's others as well. But the way the grand piano sounds is tops, it plays like a real piano.

    Great for Students

    My parents bought this for me for Christmas back in 2012. I keep this in my dorm so I can practice. It's fantastic for a music major like me who is learning to play. My only thing is that with me being so short and small it can be difficult to carry up the stairs but, I also feel like that can come with any full sized piano.

    Exceptional value

    Pros:
    - Very lightweight for an 88key fully weighted action
    - Keys have a realistic ebony/ivory feel
    - Responsive, dynamic keyboard action
    - Excellent sound (when output to an external PA)
    - Good build quality
    Cons:
    - On-board speaker system is average at best
    - Plugging into output jack(s) disables on-board speakers (should be a selectable option)
    - No independent L/R 1/4" output (uses a stereo 1/4" output jack)

    For those who are looking for a stage piano with EXCELLENT essentials, meaning sound, playability and portability, this is a great choice. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but does the basics with aplomb.

    I compared this against the Yamaha P-105, and the difference in realistic piano sound and keyboard feel is night and day. If you demo this unit, listen with headphones.

    Great lttle keybord!

    Great sound and feel. Not fond of the sustain pedal that came with the keyboard. I think the chorus/reverb settings would sound better with a better quality sustain pedal. But for the price, it's a great little keyboard.

    Great practice digital piano

    First off, this was my first purchase from Sweetwater in which I bought very huge packaged items. The items got to my house in one big box ridiculously secure. So thank you Sweetwater for making my life easy.

    Now let's get to the review.

    This is the Casio PX-150. I am usually a yahama guy and needed to find a keyboard with the smallest width, and this one came to mind. Do not get me wrong I played on privia's before, and loved it, that's why I went with this one.

    When opening it up, you see you are very limited what you can do. You have basic functions and a 2 track recorder. You have 2 phone ports, a damper pedal port and a USB port to use midi on a computer. This is not a big deal since this keyboard is for PRACTICING, NOT PRODUCING. If you buy this with an expectation of being a great production board, you will be extremely disappointed. All I needed was a place to practice on, and this board serves more than its purpose.

    The keybed of this board feels great. I played on MANY boards that all had different feels. I also play on acoustic Grand Pianos, so I am diverse on the feeling of these instruments. When playing the Privia, I was impressed, the keys feel really great. If you close your eyes and feel the keys, they feel really natural. You actually have to press down with some strength to play just like you would on a Steinway. Casio got this down. Then again, I was always attracted to privias due to the key feel, so I always expect this from Casio. And the keybed feel was one of my top factors in purchasing a board.

    Now there is some cons. I am truly NOT feeling the piano sounds in this board. To me (this is very subjective!), there is a level of warmth missing. At first this will bother you, however, after playing it for a while, it wasn't much of a big deal. But be prepared. Otherwise I'll live.

    You also have to wait for this guy to 'boot' on. It is really short time to wait, however, I expect to turn it on and just play. This gets to me a lot, and I feel like it will take me a while to get use to. Once again, not a big deal cause you are going to wait like 30 seconds, but just keep that in mind.

    Now for the small cons. The buttons and knob on this board feel cheap, I would not bang away on the buttons, just be mindful. The damper included feels cheap, I will buy another one in the future. This is not a big deal since I thought the keyboard wouldn't come with a damper, so I am content.

    Bottom line, if you are looking for a board to really practice your skills, buy this board with no hesitation, it will truly fit your needs! I couldn't be happier what I purchased.
    If you are looking for a board with midi ports, an advanced sequencer, tons of production ready sounds, and tons of outputs, this board is not for you since it is NOT intended to be that.

    Once again, great Keyboard Casio! I haven't felt really confident in a purchase in such a long time!
