Hi everyone! Adult beginner here looking to buy my first digital piano. First a little background about myself. I have a wide range of taste in music; from classical, to alternative, even to rap metal. But my prevalent taste in music has always been those that uses the piano. The songs that I love the most are sung with a piano. I have always been drawn to and fascinated with piano playing and music. So now the time has come for me to make my dream a reality, to be able to play the piano. To play the songs that I love.
I also grew up listening to my Father playing his classical and opera music in the house and I also would like to play him a classical piano piece down the road.

Now to the DP options. The Casio PX 330 or PX 350 or PX 735. You may wonder why these 3. It's because our local Casio store is the only one offering their pianos at an 18 month installment at 0% interest. I really can't afford a one time payment so I'm pretty much stuck with these.
Prices are the following: (converted to USD)
PX 330 - $978 (unit + sustain pedal only, no stand/chair)
PX 350 - $1321 (unit + sustain pedal only, no stand/chair)
PX 735 - $1247 (unit + 3 pedals + stand + chair)

I would like to ask for advise on what the best deal and piano is out of the 3.

I was opting for the PX 330 for the price and portability but I would have to buy an X stand for it, which basing on the videos I've seen, doesn't offer a firm support while playing - it shakes.
For the additional $250, the PX 735 is somewhat worth it because it comes with a stand, chair and 3 pedals. It also looks good in the living room. Although at the expense of portability. I've read that the PX 735 is a PX 135 with a built in case? So does this mean that the PX 330 is still better than the PX 735?
As for the PX 350, the price to benefit ratio really doesn't compare to the other two. Or am I missing some "improvement" that makes it worth getting?

Really appreciate the help! Thanks in advance! =)

Welcome to Piano World, Yogimo13.

I have a PX350 that I acquired so that I can practice on a reasonable keyboard when I'm away from my acoustic at home. I like it very much.

I'm surprised that the prices you mention are so high. Have you compared the prices to, say, Amazon.com for your region? I wonder whether the profit related to the so-called "0% interest" isn't being buried in an inflated purchase price?

As to the merits of these and other digital pianos, you will find it more rewarding to re-post your question in the "Digital Pianos/Sythesizers" forum, which you can get to by clicking on "Forum List" at the top of the page. These models have been the subject of considerable discussion there.

Again, welcome to Piano World!

Thanks for the reply. I live in an Asian country that doesn't have an Amazon service. I wish we had a deliver service as good as in the US / Canada and other countries. I would guess the premium would be the shipping of the DP's to our country. I checked online and even with the cheaper price, the shipping fee would bring the price back up to what is available locally.

Will post this on the correct forum, apologies for this. =)
