WRITE speed is dramatically different between the two kinds of flash. I only mentioned it as a possible answer to your complaint about flash write speed in the Casio, that it doesn't necessarily mean they are using substandard or "old stock" as you suggested.

I've already posted my answers to your question about sound quality. My comments on reliability were in response to your comments elsewhere in this same thread. ("There's so many software issues with it that it makes my stomach churn" and "issue is back to reliabilty"). If you didn't want anyone to talk about reliability in this thread, maybe you shouldn't have brought it up.

Fine, anything but a Casio in terms of sound and reliability.

Did you listen to Casio through good quality headphones or monitors? (Amateur Jerry already asked this, but you didn't answer.)
Did you listen to Yamaha and Kawai, which in your opinion produce better sound, using the SAME headphones or monitors?

Casio allegedly uses Steinway samples in their digital pianos (I wasn't able to quickly find a proof though). It's up to personal preference whether Casio or e.g. some Yamaha pianos have better sound, but it certainly isn't a result of Casio not manufacturing acoustic pianos.

xorbe, What does the word "uses" mean?

@pianoworldanon

You have said you live 2 hours from a place where a DP could be repaired, and you are very concerned about reliability and after-sale service (now about sound).
There's a lot to read in the forum, but perhaps the first thing is to change your attitude. You don't like your Casio, and you didn't make a good purchase. Ok, then try to learn some lesson from it all that help you in the future.
How about negotiating some (3 year?) home assistance with the dealer (perhaps at the cost of some extra money), like an insurance?
And with regards to the sound...nothing better than a live test.
Yamaha: round, stretched, well built, old technology, reliable. Your daught, you and grandma will al like it!
Kawai: bright, dynamic, risky, innovative, more character, hard to drive.
Software pianos: I guess it should be your choice. Better overall sound (and more customizable), you can choose every component in the sound chain (good 2nd hand options) and get spare parts when needed...this, along with maybe some sertraline would do it easier, from my own experience smile
