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 don't know how people can say the piano sounds don't sound real, everyone who's heard mine could swear i'm playing a real piano. Not only that, but the action this piano has is so realistic it's scary! I enjoy every minute of playing on this thing, and for the money, when comparing to some YAMAHAs said to be in the same caliber, the value is GREAT! The only thing I found wrong was the harshness in the speakers once you go past 11 o'clock on the dial, but I play through stereo speakers and it sounds great. I highly suggest this digital piano, you won't be let down.
My Mom has wanted to play piano her entire life, but has always sat on the sidelines. So a couple of months ago, I bought her this piano and got her signed up for lessons. She loves it and has stopped playing computor games and watching TV.My six year old has taken an interest, so I'm considering buying another one. A great piano to start anybody on their way.
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 play a much more expensive Yamaha at church and the grand piano tone is better and the feel more natural than more expensive Yamaha. The hammer action gives realistic feel. Don't worry about lack of dampaning or hearing the hammers unless you plan to play it real low or mike the speakers. The fingers rub the keys at times but that is good to get used to because some real pianos do that. It doesn't bother me a bit and I still have not found a piano that feels better to play.
I purchased the Privia 310 about a month ago, and have enjoyed it thoroughly. The weighted keys are remarkably accurate for the price range and the light weight makes it fantastic to move around. At first I was slightly concerned about the polyphony, but so far I haven't heard any drop outs, even in some intricate pieces.There are a few downsides to this piano though. The sound through the built in speakers is pretty dismal, though this isn't the case with a headset plugged in or when plugged into an amp. Just don't expect to get the sound you want out of the internal speakers. Most of the sounds are pretty good, but the jazz and rock organs in particular are unimpressive. And lastly, I'm a little concerned about the AC adapter. Its quite clunky and falls out of wall sockets with a little too much ease.However, despite these flaws, I'm really pleased with this piano. If you want great internal sound quality and use a plethora of alternate keyboard sounds, this might not be the product for you, but otherwise this is a great instrument.
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 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!!!!!
Great keyboard piano for the money great value!!!. Just purchased px-310 2 weeks ago and I love it. It has a real piano feel, keys feel great..I had a cheap radioshack keyboard witch didn't feel like a piano, so px-310 almost feels like a grand piano...other features are great also drums sound very real..If you don,t want to spend to much money this product is super value...
My pastor bought this keyboard as a replacement. As worship leader I have had the pleasure of being the one to break it in.athe feel of the keys is as close to a Baby Grand as I think you can get. The grand piano sound is spot on and it has enough other sounds to make you smile, I know as I can't quit smiling every time I play it. It is definately worth the money.
