Casio Privia PX-120!!

I'm actually very happy with my purchase. I got it for $450 + a free stand (and not the X shape, but an actual built-in stand) as well as their free packet of music (too advanced for me, but still!).

I'll confirm it here--the sound isn't great. In fact, it's not even that good. But, we only bought it for silent practice. The keys are great though--better than our piano. Once you switch to something other than piano, the sound is much better though.

Best of luck to everyone else who is still undecided--I recommend this one.

The Casios are a great bargain for the money. I love my PX-200 and serves its purpose very well. I hope it brings your years of enjoyment.

Yes decent headphones make a world of difference to the enjoyment of playing silently \:D

And I love my PX-320 too (quite a lot actually even though I'll always hanker for a nice big grand but hey!)
