This is a very nice beginner keyboard. Its not really fully weighted but its great for the price. The tones are from Casio which are not as rich as Yamaha but the Yamaha keyboards are twice as expensive. That is why I dinged a star. That shouldn't deter you but it could be a point to consider. It has USB so you can work with software. the speakers are pretty decent for practice at this price level. If you're thinking about needing 88 and are on a very tight budget then this is a great option. Its not a toy.

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 action and tone

By Kristy Curtis

from Florida

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

I am a beginner and needed a keyboard with weighted keys because my lessons are being taught on an acoustic piano. These keys are not only weighted, but they are slightly heavier than a piano- so when I went to play for my teacher it was actually easy. (practicing had strengthened my fingers and improved my ability in less than a week) Also, before I purchased I went to guitar center and tested out all the other keyboards. Yamahas had great tone but were way more expensive and the keys were barely weighted. The other brands had weird tones that did not sound like real pianos. Casio turned out to be the best and also one of the most inexpensive. Would definitely recommend if you'd like to get the feel of a piano.

Talk about a hidden gem...

By John Parker

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

I was in the market for an 88 key midi keyboard with weighted keys and, almost everything seemed to cost around $800-$1000. I could not swing that. Then I found this Casio piece. I remember looking at the ad (It was on sale at the time) thinking, if only it has USB. And then I saw that it did. I did a little research on the Googler and found that it interface beautifully with Garage Band, Logic, Native instruments etc. Needless to say, I bought it immediately and have yet to be disappointed. The action on the keys is awesome! Is there nicer out there? Yep. But, for the money, this was a steal. I tend to bang out some pretty heavy blues and the keys seem to like the torment cause they come right back asking for more.This is still an awesome deal for a midi keyboard.

Perfect minimalism. No extraneous features that drive costs up.

By Andrew Huang

from Winston Salem, NC

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

This is a spectacular keyboard for a piano-player, which basically means that if you want the sound and feel of a piano, THIS is the keyboard to buy, but if you're in a rock band that needs synths/orchestra sounds, etc, either connect to a MIDI interface or buy the Privia line of pianos. I love the Privia line of pianos (used to play a friend's PX-110) but the additional costs is only worth it if you intend on using the greatly expanded feature set of the Privias like all their extra instrument sounds, recordings, and drum tracks. If you just want to make piano sounds, the CDP series is where you should put your money.

Great entry level digital piano!

By MONICA KOCH

from Iowa City

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

This piano will make a good inexpensive instrument for beginners or hobbyist who just want to play it like a piano. I like the Piano 1 sound; it is decent and enjoyable especially when listening through headphones. The weighted keys with hammer action make this feel very real compared to the (less costly) touch sensitive keyboards that use springs. However, I did notice how the keys respond differently than a real piano (one of the few things I still remember). For example, on a real piano you can play with very light touch and still produce sound, but with this you have to use certain amount of force or there will be no sound. I also noticed a couple of the high notes if hit hard will sound "off" - this is only noticeable through the headphone though, so it could be a problem with the headphone itself(?). If I don't hit as hard they sound normal. The keys do bounce back slower, so repeating the same note very fast may be a challenge - though I'm not concerned because I like "mellow" music. I have had this for a month now and have really enjoyed playing it - the old "weightless" keyboard is going to Goodwill. Go to a local GC to try one out - and compare it with others. I doubt you'd find anything better at this price.

nice for the price

By david kaplan

from paso robles,ca

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

i've been playing for a couple of years. i have a nice synth workstation and a acoustic spinet. i love the sound and feel of the acoustic but found it hard to go back to the synth for a good piano sound and feel. i bought the williams elegro and promptly returned it for a defect out of the box. i decided to go to GC and try all of them to get a good feel that i'm familliar with. the CDP-120 had the best overall feel and sound i was looking for. even the $3500 yamaha didn't feel as natural as the CDP120. what few features there are, are very easy to use. i bought it for the piano..thats it. and this instrument does it very well. if you want bells and whistles...this ain't it. if you want simple, good sound and great touch, buy it!

A True Workhorse

By Josh C

from Kansas City, Kansas

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

This piano does exactly what it needs to. I use it weekly at church and it always delivers. It's pretty compact for an 88-key piano, which is really nice and it fits perfectly into my Road Runner bag. The keys are weighted quite nicely, although they are a bit more weighty than usual. This is not a big problem though, especially considering the price. The only reason I'm not giving this piano 5 stars is because its settings other than the grand pianos leave a lot to be desired. The grand piano sounds are quite good for the price but there is no organ setting. The strings sound is not great either. I wouldn not use it for anything more than playing around with experimental chord progressions. The electric piano settings are alright. THere is no synthesizer setting either. But all in all, this piano is fantastic and well worth the buy!

Amazing!

By Jason Murphy

from Somerville, Ma

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

you cannot beat this Casio. Dont be fooled by the less expensive Allegro, It feels like a kids toy compared to the Casio CDP120. Less features than the Privias but who needs em? A Baby Grand doesnt have other samples you can choose from, why should this?. The sound is Amazing (on grand piano 1- avoid grand piano 2). With only 5 total samples its skimpy but again, who needs em. the Hammer action is SPOT ON! It feels like a digital piano 3 times the price, sounds like it too. Speakers are loud, much louder than the Yamahas. theres some tuning options that are beneficial but you wont use much. I also used an adapter for my ipod headphones and was floored by the sound, i could not believe i was using cheap ipod earbuds! cant wait to plug in good headphones. Sound is amazing feel is amazing price is amazing cant go wrong

This instrument is good

By Anthony Sherman

from Alaska

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

I have used this model now for about 1 year and I want all to know that it is very functional, just bear in mind what you want to use it for. For in home playing with guests and family it is very nice, and it is ideal for the beginner. The piano voices are realistic and enjoyable to play and hear, but I will say honestly that the other voices are not so great IMO.. If you are looking for something with a nice piano sound go no further, but if you want a selection of nice voices then reach deeper in your pocket. The weighted keys are not comparable to a real piano but do offer good strength building exercise and control. Hope you find what you are looking for, I have really enjoyed playing this dp and will continue to.

Amazing digital piano

By Nick Barber

from Boston, MA

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

I grew up playing on a baby grand. I took piano lessons for about a decade as a kid. Then stopped playing and recently I was looking to get back into. Since the baby grand won't fit in my 600 sq ft apartment I was in the market for a digital piano. I had a keyboard from childhood, but I really wanted something with 88 weighted keys. I bought this keyboard on sale for $250 and it is everything I wanted and needed. There are a limited number of voices, but I only use the default grand piano voice. There are a few extras like reverb and chorus, but I don't use those much. The feeling of the keys are very similar to a real piano. I was really impressed. Two things that could be improved on this piano, but they are only slight drawbacks. Turned up to full volume, the speakers are good for practicing or playing in a small room. Beyond that you would need some external speakers. Also, if you press down a key, the sound falls off more quickly than a real piano. If I had to do it over again, neither of these would impact my buying this model. I've been playing this digital piano about 1-2 hours a day for the past month and there are no issues with the quality. I am so pleased with this purchase and I'd recommend it without reservation.

Casio cdp-120 Digital Piano

By Diane Schmitting

from Sheboygan, WI

Comments about Casio CDP-120 Digital Piano:

My daughter (age: 25) missed not playing piano. She lives in a small apartment. She took piano lessons for 10 years. Decided to surprise her for Christmas with a piano that would fit in her apt. Difficult decision since there are so many pianos and huge price range. Took a chance and ordered the Casio CDP-120 with the intention of returning or exchanging if it did not meet her expectations. As of today, Jan 10, 2014, she loves it. She is satisfied. Meets her needs and does not feel the need to upgrade for what she uses it for. Dealing with Guitar Center was really great. Highly recommend! After Christmas I noticed the piano was $50 cheaper. I called them and they were happy to refund me the difference. Because of the great customer service we promptly spent the $50+ at Guitar Center on a piano stand and upgraded the sustain pedal, Which by the way, she would have been OK with the pedal that came with the piano but since we had a savings we splurged. All in all could not be happier with our purchase and dealing with Guitar Center. I don't usually write reviews but could not resist since I had such great service with this company. Becoming a rare thing lately. Diane

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.
