Ultimate Casio PX150 Review
With just over 20 lbs of weight, PX150 is the most lightweight and compact digital piano on our top 5 list of recommendations. It is also the cheapest one, which makes it a great choice if you are on a budget. The new AiR sound source provides the best sound money can buy for less than $500 and simulated Ebony / Ivory keys feel authentic enough to give a user experience.
List of Top Features:
Great Sound – The new AiR sound source provides exceptional award-winning sound for such an affordable piano. It provides more than 3 times more memory than previous generations from Privia line and produces very realistic and detailed sound that can stand up to most top-end digital pianos in the world in much higher price range. However, some users claim that speakers should be more powerful.
Keyboard – PX150 has a new and redesigned 88-note keyboard with Scaled Hammer Action. With simulated Ebony and Ivory keys, it gives an authentic feel, similar to the one you get on acoustic pianos.
Design – There are 2 attractive and modern designs to choose from – black and white. Note, that PX150 doesn’t come with a keyboard stand because it’s meant to be portable, so if you plan to but it as an addition and have it in your living room, make sure you choose the right design that will fit into it.
Connectivity – Just like all pianos from Privia series, PX150 provides USB connectivity, which makes it a lot easier to connect it with a computer (Mac or Windows), without a need for installing additional software or drivers. USB MIDI also allows it to connect with Apple iPad through Apple’s Camera connection kit.
Warranty – PX150 comes with standard 12-month warranty on parts and labor, but it can be extended up to 2 years with included coverage for drops and spills. Casio guarantees to cover full 2-ways shipping costs and repairing all electrical and mechanical failures in 5 days or less.
