hello friends.
i want to replace my old yamaha p120 for a new piano. i tried the casio privia px-330 and convinces me for its value for money. is lightweight, has good touch and sounds good. i would like to know the opinion of people who have. occasionally i play at home and with friends.
thank you.

at 26lbs and $700, that's a great keyboard!
o.k.thank you.

i've had a px-330 for about a year.  no digital piano sounds like the real thing.  long sustained notes sound a bit plasticy - but that's true with every other sub-$1000 piano i tried.  one good thing about the sound is that the bass is not too loud.  i do sound for festivals, and when a yamaha stage piano shows up, i know i'm going to be equalizing the heck out of it, because the lowest 3 octaves are always way too loud, not at all like an acoustic piano.

some of the "features" are not great - you can layer two instruments, and adjust the volume of the two.  for a neat sound, i layer "jazz guitar" beneath piano, setting the guitar to "barely audible."  that's good.  but when you split the keyboard, so that it's bass in the left hand and piano in the right, for instance, there is no separate control of volume.  and, when you press the sustain pedal, you sustain both voices, and nobody wants a bass with sustain.

but for my purposes it's just right.  i do 95% piano, and sub on other instruments only occasionally.  i like that i can take it to a gig, plug into the pa system and play.  take it back home, and to practice, just set it up with the power supply, no need to cable it into my home stereo.  the built-in speakers do that for you.

the built-in rhythms are only 4/4 and 3/4, no practice in the popular 5/4 or 7/4 rhythms.  but if you're needing that, you can get irealbook on an android and have much more flexibility.

until i have roadies, this 30-pounder does it for me.
i own one and play it out every week.  agree with all the pluses above.  i have owned it for about 2 years.  i bought it when my p-95 yamaha died.  i actually like the key responsiveness better for some reason than the yamaha.
it has usb midi which is handy for playing various vst pianos in my daw.
negatives:  the only other voicing that i like on board is strings, the rest of the on board sounds are not good imo.
i heard today that casio is coming out with a new pro kb - new action and better samples...i'll keep y'all posted as i hear more
