After a band disaster last year and subsequent sell-off of everything keyboard related, we decided that it was time again to have a keyboard in the house. However, this time, we had much different requirements in a keyboard -- 88 weighted keys, excellent piano sound and easy use were paramount.The PX-310 delivers on all counts -- and then some. The four basic piano sounds are clean and full, and range from mellow to bright without and adjustment required. In fact, all of the "front panel" tones are excellent and quite realistic. None of the "advanced tones" are weak, either. The only sounds that are less than excellent are some of the GM sounds. And, typical of GM sounds, there are some that are a bit cheesy.There are several features of the keyboard I'll never use. The two-track recorder is one of them. Fortunately, there's MIDI capability which will allow me to work with my favorite computer-based workstation and production software.I do wish that the "half-pedalling" action could be accessed through the regular sustain pedal jack on the back of the keyboard, instead of being forced to use the expensive and hard-to-find SP-30 option -- an option that I would need to modify to work in my our situation.I also wish that there were more variations for the built-in patterns -- more like the old Yamaha PSR740, which had 4 variations and 4 fills for each pattern. I've found that features like that make great musical scratch-pads. But, again, there's software for that.Speaking of using the PX-310 with a computer or other keyboard, the PX-310 has line inputs and outputs. The line inputs are great for playing or practicing with either a computer or CD player, and the line outs make recording a snap.

i was really prepared to like this after reading some reviews. even more so when it arrived, as it's more beautiful in person than on the web, and it does have great hammer action. it looks very classy yet modern. they did a good job at making the speaker area look good. well, i was sadly dissapointed at the piano sound. the internal speakers don't hold a candle to my non hammer action yamaha, nor does the piano sounds which is mainly what i got it for. even after plugging into my pa system and positioning the keys in between so i can get full stereo effect (not to mention tweaking eq till the cows come home), still sorely disappointed. i kept comparing to the yamaha and the casio just sounded too processed for me. no, i don't expect a true grand sound to rival a real grand, but electronic pianos are MORE than capable of inspiring me with their sound and this falls so short. i hate to go against the good reviews on this. i tried, believe me. the only thing i can think of as to why people liked the sound on this is because they're not really used to using reverb, so the built in default reverb on this probably made them think wow, it sounds so full! i can tell what is good sound and what sounds a tad fuller due to reverb, more than i'd like to. this would be ok to practice, it's feel is superb, but if u want something to inspire u as u play, and your ear is pretty good, look elsewhere. oh yeah, the power jack on mine is going out, right out of the box. have to jiggle it to get it to "catch." returning mine, which is unfortunate because i'm sure it'll cost a mint

Casio Px-310 is an amazing digital piano keyboard for the price, quality, and features! My Only reservation about this product is that there is no microphone jack. but hands down this is a great piano for a novice, experienced, or professional player! Well worth the money!
I just bought this keyboard and I am so pleased with it. It plays, feels, and sounds better than many of the higher end Yamahas here at my college. This is probably one of the best lower end keyboards out there.
The keyboard is great, action is nice and sound is also very good. It feels very solid. Easy to tote around as well. Tone variety is nice and most sound pretty smooth. Can't compare it it to the more expensive keybds, but it is a great step up from the cheaper, non-hammer action boards I have used before.Customers may want to be aware that Musicians Friend sells items as blemished that have missing parts - this is not mentioned in the product description (it only states that items may have minor cosmetic defects or be slightly "experienced."). I was pretty pissed to find that there was no manual or score stand (the plastic sheet music holder) with the keybd - this seems like more than a cosmetic defect to me. I would never order a blemished item from them (you pay shipping on the return if it is defective or missing parts - in this case a big chunk of change).
Surprisingly good feel to the weight of the action, but the fingers graze against the sides of the keys and can feel the crude quality there. Moreover, there is a distinct lack of dampening inside the case so the thunking noise of hammers hitting the switches, and then resonating in the casing, overwhelms the instrument sounds on lower volumes, and even medium volumes. The sign of cheap quality. Try it, you'll hear it.
The PX-310 feels like a piano and sounds like a piano - even through its somewhat small speakers. I'm very pleased with the other tones on the keyboard, as well. The controls do take a little getting used to for someone who's used to using a keyboard with a lighted screen. And the best thing is, it's less than thirty pounds, so I can haul it everywhere I need it without breaking my back. It's a great keyboard for someone looking for a few quality sounds without spending money on options you won't use.
i recieved my px-310 3 days ago. I would highly recomend this board for the beginner to the mor skilled player.This keyboard has very nice pianos and organ sounds that fit perfectly for recordning or live performances. One however should keep in mind that the sounds are not as good as the more expensive rolands or yamaha keyboards.However for my purposes this is a keyboard that is serving me 100%. I play in a country oldies band and the quality of this keyboard along with the price is a perfect combination.I dont think this keyboard would work for the heavy metal or hip hop folks, but in my opinion its a great all around board with some nice features. It's also built well and has a good manuel to follow.
I have played professionally for over 30 years on stage and in recording studios. I also own a Yamaha S90ES. I play two house gigs, playing the Casio 310 one night and the Yamaha the next night.With the exception of longer samples the Casio is every bit as good as the Yamaha. The main piano has beautiful sparkling sounds. There are a few of the other 200 sounds that are USUABLE. Disregard the built in speakers and hook up live IN STEREO. I have played everything and nothing comes close for the money. It is a joy to play.
I like this piano alot. It sounds really good and I love the feel of it. I only wish it had better patches like a regular organ and harpsicord instead of some of the useless ones like fantasy. Overall, I still think it is a great piano and I am really enjoying it.
We just replaced the P60 we had been using with our 12pc big band with a new PX-310. The difference is significant. Where the P60 was also OK in the higher registers, the PX-310 sounds so much better & cuts through beautifully. Compared to the 310, the P60 sounded muddy. The biggest difference is in the lower registers. The P60 was always a disaster when attempting to reproduce low notes-- Always huge BLAH sounds, always too sensitive, no piano sound at all. The 310 sounds great with low notes-- Like a piano.If you listen carefully, the 310 sounds a little more like an 'electric piano' than would be perfect. But for our band, its gonna be perfect.
I went investigating "real" sound/feel electric pianos to round out my studio. Being familiar with the big boys (Roland RDs, Kersweill PCs etc) is was expecting to spend a few dollars.Then I read about the new Casio PX-310 (I guess its to replace the 300) and everything about it sounded good, esp. the price.Went and checked one out, and it rivals the big boys in feel and tonal quality.Plus it has a bunch of other sounds built in, some cool and usuable, others kind of cheezy, but it's main purpose, piano, I think it does this very well and has a good believable sound.Well worth the money, and then some.Oh..did I mention that I walked out of the store with it.
The Casio PX-310 88-Key Digital Piano is a great deal for the money. The weighted keys give it a natural feel. While all of the "extra" sounds may not be top notch, they are not bad at all. I have read a few bad reviews, and respectfully disagree with them. You get what you pay for. Like I stated earlier, this keyboard is excellent for its price range. The layering and splitting pof sounds is great! Yeah, you have to work at it to get the excat sound you want. Once you have them, storing and retrieval is a breeze. The piano sounds are great as are the strings. For the money, you can't go wrong.
The Privia PX-310 has plenty of features for the money. It has a variety of authentic sounds to choose from, plus the full MIDI instrument set. I especially like to play with the grand piano and church organ sounds. I am pleased with the realism of those and other sounds. The 2 track recording is useful. You can play a duet with yourself. (You can play/record while the other track is playing.) There are nice ways to fine tune the sound, such as with reverb. The auto accompaniment is fun to play with. It utilizes the multitude of rhythms that can accompany you on this keyboard/piano. Speaking of it as a piano, it has an authentic sound and feel. My only complaint is that the keys make a little too much noise when they are released. But their noise isn't really noticable at higher volumes. And the touch sensitivity is realistic, as well. The pedal is simple, but it does the job. I'm happy with this purchase, overall.
This keyboard has some great aspects, regardless of the price. First of all, it has great action: it does feel pretty close to a real piano. It is so lightweight: Great for gigging! It has a cool Rhodes sound (60's ep preset): it fooled my ears a bit. Drawbacks: the keyboard can sound sort of midi, especially in the onboard speakers. This is not a huge issue for me because it sounds good in my PA speakers with my effects tweaked. The Rock piano preset is actually more realistic than the grand piano. For stage, playing in a rock band this keyboard could fool the ears. However, for solo playing, this keyboard could fall short in the "realistic" department.The main drawback however, is the dinky power supply. This is a huge drawback for professional musicians especially when gigging. I feel that the cord is not going to last long and it worries me a bit because the plug gets heated up. I also worry that it is going to come unplugged. So that's the one and only big drawback to this keyboard. But for the price, it's worth it.
I'm very happy with the Casio PX-310. It has good basic sounds and more if I need them but for the price, you can't beat it. One person wrote about the polyphony, and it's true. If you sit on the sustain pedal and play over 32 note assignments at once (32 polyphony includes notes played, effects, stereo, sustain pedal, ect.) it cuts out. I have never had a problem with this though, I do not sit on the sustain pedal. If you do, go get a stomp box effect. Problem solved.
Replacing my keyboards after Hurricane Katrina, this was a no-brainer! This is not semi-weighted, or a toy piano, but amazingly professional feeling. I started years ago with the little wurlitzers,and played all kinds-This is a great value for twice the price...Hooked up with a Behringer keyboard amp, it is a lot of bang for small bucks-
The PX-310 is the best keyboard I have ever used. (1.) You get your money back in 10 seconds. (2.) If I had to choose between the PX-310, and a $99999 one for the same pice, I would choose the PX-310!!!!!
I am loving this keyboard. I love the weighted action keys and the sound is phenomenal. I'm playing gigs and its perfect for our band. My only complaint is its not as user friendly as it could be, and it takes some time to learn how to use and implement the extra sounds and features. However, I would buy this keyboard even if it didn't have the extras. If you are looking for a portable keyboard to play and sound like a piano, this is it.
I had been to a local music store, and spent a lot of time playing every keyboard in the store that sold for much more than this Casio. Some, I really liked, but when I saw the price and read the customer reviews for the PX 310, I decided to try it out. I love the touch and feel of this keyboard, and even more, the piano sounds. I have enjoyed playing it so much, that I have not really taken the time to work with layering sounds or more advanced features yet, but I absolutely love it.
The Casio PX310 is a great keyboard for the price. I've been on mine for 2 years! Very light (25 pounds, are you kidding!) Excellent for gigs (I play 60 or 70 gigs a year.) The Grand Piano sample is a little weak. I use the Rock Piano sample most of the time as it's a little brighter. The internal speakers are small but make the keys feel alive when you have it connected to a mixer. The action is excellent. Tons of features and sounds. The sustain pedal is flimsy as is the power source, which plugs into the side rather than the back. Yes...You'll get a bigger sound and a slightly better feel from the much more expensive, much heavier Yamaha, but for the weight and the price of this piano, it's perfect for the road warrior musician. Buy It!
I had tried a couple of other keyboards, a Casio digital piano, which felt and sounded good but had no hookups for recording or amping, and an M-Audio 88-key, which had lots of jacks but the sound was a little too thin for me. Third time is the charm, because I really like my 310. It has a great touch, realistic piano sound, and plenty of jacks for amping or recording. The general midi sounds are a bit too difficult to access to allow changing mid-play. But overall I am very pleased with it.
