I'd like to know your opinion... I've decided I need a digital piano as I am seriously lacking on space... I want the children to learn but I'm not interested in spend 1000s - at least not until they're filling concert halls!!
Does anyone have an opinion about this:

Is the Casio a good budget choice? The price looks good, but are there any alternatives I should look at? What about buying used digital pianos?? Is this wise?
Erm... depending on the model, they can be alright.adam1980 wrote: Is the Casio a good budget choice? The price looks good, but are there any alternatives I should look at? What about buying used digital pianos?? Is this wise?
I have never played a PX410 so can't give you any advice on this one - maybe someone else has played one.
Your obviously planning to a budget, what is your maximum?
Secondhand digital pianos are alright provided that you don't go too far back. Digital pianos, generally speaking, made a breakthrough soundwise and in their keyboard design. Hammer action and dynamic sampling are all phrases to look out for. Some examples could be the CLP220, 230 which should be under £1000 secondhand. YDP151, DGX models, P60, P70, P120, P140 (all Yamaha models).
Brand new, consider P85 which is under £400 brand new.
I still think, soundwise, that the P-85 has a better tonality than the piano sample used on the Casio. The piano sample seems to peak and decay to early for my liking. Have you tried any Yamaha's yet?
