If I had to pick a digital piano for someone on a budget, this would be my first pick. The key action on this piano simply feels great and the simplified design makes it very visually appealing. This would also make a lot of sense for someone looking for a weighted 88-key MIDI controller for their home studio since it works as both a MIDI controller and as a standalone digital piano.

Yamaha and Kawai are great.
But even for a pro, this instrument is great tambien. Almost too good. I am not a pro, but a very competent pianist and to ship my piano from home to the job I am currently working would cost as much.
But this is a nice machine. It feels like the 1920 Steinway I used to play in college. With free shipping? I have never seen a better deal.
