Just bought a casio privia px 750 today,assembled it, took the tape off and have realised all the keys are at different heights and aren't even. There is even a clicking noise for some keys. Is it worth getting another or should I get a different brand instead? Thanks smile

I'd take it back and get another but I'd have the store inspect it first before taking it home.

That's normal with Casio pianos I think. My 330 had uneven keys and my new 150 does too. It doesnt affect your playing though, unless your keys are a couple of millimeters uneven.

I had it on my PX350 and returned it- had it twice. Was told it was a problem with previous models. Not acceptable to me to spend hundreds of dollars on a product. Poor design. No excuse. End of discussion.

However, my PX130 is PERFECT and I enjoy playing it a lot.

You will feel better if you return it. If it happens again, find a brand that places importance on evenly spaced and heighted keys, such as Yamaha.

Mine, too.

As MM says, it's a service or return issue.

There's a similar post about a Kawai on this forum. QC isn't perfect for any maker.

Regarding equal spacing between keys, the PX350 is just as good as my Yamaha MOX........and not even a tiny blip on the radar. Perfection costs a lot more than the combined MSRP of these two keyboards. If you want a perfect model see if you can get your hands on the one used at a show. But I don't think even the show models of keyboards are built to scrutinizing perfection like guitars or cars. It is common for a show guitar to have well above average wood grain and car to have a flawless finish, for instance.

Correct. Many of the models at NAMM are prototypes and not the final versions of the product.
