If you could leave it in there, you'd never worry about leaving it behind! I doubt it will be quite that small, though. (There would also be the question of whether the power supply, if operated so close to the electronics, might induce any hum/buzz problems in some situations.)

Good idea about it fitting in the battery compartment. But in reality, Casio made a good choice by doing it the way they did. First, internal power supplies get hot (heat damages electronic components) and/or shortens their life. Second, internal power supplies add considerable weight compared to the rest of the internal parts. Third, without extra shielding (more material/weight) hum could be introduced. Fourth, if anything goes wrong with an internal power supply you need to take the entire unit in for repair.

It also shares the same power supply as many other models like the PX-150 and PX-350. So the power supplies are easy to find at nearly any Casio dealer if you ever need a spare. Of course the batteries will also be handy if you ever leave your power supply behind. wink

I will take an inline power supply any day. To me its an acceptable compromise. Its the wall warts I absolutely detest. I keep the power supply in the case, I never forget to bring it. Unlike the damper pedal!

The fact that it can use batteries should also mean that if you're using AC power and for some reason the power goes out (someone walks near the cord and knocks it loose), the batteries should kick in right away, acting as a UPS. Not sure if they implemented it this way but if they did, that's a huge plus during a public performance!

If you punch "casio px-5s" into google, it is listed for pre-order for just $999.
