I'm looking for a digital piano/synthesizer to learn how to play on, however I only have around $50-$55 to spend. The two I found are the Casio SA-67 and the eKeys 47, are there any others that would be okay for the price? The reviews for both say that they have smaller keys than a regular piano which makes them harder to play, would this be a big problem?

There's a regular digital piano I can play at school, it's just that I want to be able to practice at home as well.

Thanks.

The smaller keys can be a major problem later on, plus the difference in the feeling of the keys. You mention being able to practice at school; is it college, high school, middle school, or elementary school? If you are a minor, you should definitely approach your parents about your need for a piano to practice on, as I haven't seen a suitable instrument for students under $700.00. The other option is renting one for $40.00 a month.

I don't want to spend that much money on something that I'm not sure I'll be fully committed to though, I guess I could learn to play on the small one along with the one at school. weeee. Thanks. :-)
