This is exactly what I was looking for. It has no unneccessary features and it doesn't sacrifice in the features it does have. It is a weighted hammer action 88 key digital piano with USB MIDI out and a 1/4" headphone jack. It has a good piano sound. I can turn it on and play the piano. I can plug in headphones and practice silently. I can plug it into my laptop and record songs or use it to trigger other voices. It's really nice to play. The price is unbeatable. The piano sound is wonderful.

To my mind you can spend hundreds and thouasnds more and not get a whole lot more piano than this. If you want a digital piano to play and enjoy this is it. Casio did a really nice job. Great keyboard with all the essentials. No frills, no fuss, no paying for features you don't need. I love this digital piano.
It has (5) on board voices: piano 1, piano 2, elec. piano, harpsichord, and strings. It has USB MIDI out. It has (1) 1/4" headphone out. It has a sustain pedal jack and basic pedal. It has 88 weighted keys that feel like what I remember a piano feeling like. They have a nice resistance and return. They feel absolutely nothing like a synth keyboard.

I don't think any keyboard can sound or feel 100% like your idea of an acoustic piano. I grew up fumbling around on a Kimball upright piano and it had a somewhat heavy action that felt like all the other old uprights I came across in churches and schools and other people's homes. That's what I think a piano key feels like. This Casio feels plays like a piano to me. I am pleasantly surprised at how satisfying it is to play.

I think this has all the features you need in a digital piano: scaled hammer action keys, a nice piano sound, speakers and a headphone jack. The rest (recording, extra voices, teaching tools) is gravy and easily made up when you connect this to your computer. Let the computer do the heavy lifting.
The case looks nice, the keys feel wonderful. The speakers are adequate. The onboard voices sound good, especially the two piano sounds. The reverb and chorus are fun to play with and are pleasing when used in moderation. It's easy to navigate the settings. I think this was well designed, sounds great, and is very pleasant to play. It feels solid when you pick it up. I'm confident it will last as long as I need it too.
Absolutely outstanding! This is the absolute best value in a weighted 88 key digital piano today. I shopped for weeks asking questions of sales clerks, piano players and tried to read up on current models. I found that, as with nearly everything musical, your choice in instrument is very personal. If you like it, it's the right choice. Also, you can get hung up on the 'best' when to the vast majoirty of us there's really very little functional difference between an inexpensive quality unit and the top shelf.

While shopping around I went a local music store and played a Korg SP-250 which is similar in features. I liked that board. It sounded nice and was ok to play. Having played both I like the Casio action much more and it costs hundreds less. This is the best deal in a digital piano you can get.

I like this piano, and for a few hundred dollars, with usb and weighted keys, etc, its great. My wife and I lead worship at the church we pastor. She plays piano and sings, I play guitar and (on good days) harmonize. At first we were stoked, but a few fatal flaws have presented themselves as to why this is not an ideal piano for live performance: 1) It automatically shuts off after a period of time which resets all transposing and other settings you may have logged. 2) It also pops when we turn it back on, which is likely due to the age of our PA and the bad grounding/wiring in the building?but its lame that when my wife walks back on stage at the end she has to turn it on *POP* then reset the transpose settings -- which, brings me to the next two fatal flaws. 3) IT BEEPS when you transpose!? Seriously? A light would suffice?So everyone hears *POP* and then *BEEP* *BEEP*. 4) Lastly, the button for transposing IS THE EXACT SAME SETTING THAT PLAYS THIS RIDICULOUS DEMO SONG. The function/demo button when tapped, plays the demo song (and for the record, the demo feature is about as useless as off road tires on a boat), when you press and hold the demo button it becomes the function key. So the other day, when my wife did not perfectly apply the right amount of time and pressure to the button, it went off and started playing the ridiculous demo song. Embarrassing. Annoying. Honestly, there may be work arounds for these issues, but I don't care. I hate that from the moment we pulled it out of the box the machine had a leg up on us. Its unfortunate that simple features as these are not more intuitive. But like I said, we paid very little for a brand new weighted key electric piano that sounds good enough for our application. However, its the little things that make the difference for this buyer and these little things I am unable to ignore.

      Great piano for the price. I got it as a restock and it came in prime condition. The weighted keys feel very realistic. It is a tad heavy but whose moving it around that much, am I right?

          Let me start by saying, shipping was super fast! Package nicely. Great instrument for learning on. After about 3 days of my daughter practicing on it, her teacher said she could tell a HUGE difference. If your looking for something to get started on and don't want to spend a lot of money. This is it!

          Many simple things to like, but too many defects

          By David

          from Carrboro, NC

          Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

          I like this keyboard - really, even though I'm giving it a 2 start rating, I do like it. It's relatively simple, it has great touch/feel, and I like the sound. The price was great. I'm getting closer and closer to saying I love this keyboard, but... How can I love it if it keeps breaking? I have already sent this keyboard back twice and I'm about to pack it up for the 3rd time. I did buy the extended warrantee, but it's a pain in the butt to have to ship it off. Then, my daughter goes without a keyboard for a few weeks in the middle of her semester of lessons. I ended up buying another CDP120 to cover that gap and then sold it on Craig's List. I should have sold the first one, but I'm honest with folks and the buyer didn't want a repaired Keyboard. Again, I will ask for a replacement, not a repair, as I did the second time I sent it back. Maybe I just got a lemon. I hope so, because I like the other aspects of this keyboard.
