This stage piano exceeded a lot of reviewers' expectations from Casio. A lot of them found the controls and parameters easy to use, in which they were able to select, edit and customize sounds effortlessly via color touch screen display. The standout feature that impressed a lot of reviewers was its keys. It provided a great feel and dynamic sensitivity with enough weight that mimics the keys found in an actual grand piano. The layering and various editing options gave a nice touch when it came to customizing sounds that are complementary.
One reviewer mentioned it takes a while to boot up from the time you turn on the unit to the time you can play. It's best to have it set up early before any live performances.
This is a considerable choice to use for both live performance and at home if you're looking for a simple unit.
