Look, the GO Piano is an inexpensive, light, unweighted keyboard. It is what it is.

I traveled with an NP11 for years because it was the only choice in that space.

The GO is miles better than the NP11. It's not a Steingraeber, but for what it is, it's a step forward.

This discussion reminds me of the old response from an auto mechanic about a repair job: We can do cheap, good, or fast, but you can only get two of those three.

With digital pianos, you can get light & portable, cheap, and weighted keys -- but you can only get two of those three.

What is better about the Go Piano?

Keys are full size on the GO Piano -- or at least full width -- they may be 1/2" short of the key length on my acoustic grand (keys on the NP11 are shorter and narrower than on a real piano); Roland key surface is a nice matte, NP11 is slippery plastic; sounds and sound options are much better on the GO Piano than on the NP11; controls on the GO Piano are much more intuitive and easy to use than on the NP11.

I've used the 76-key NP32 for about 2 weeks as a practice keyboard. It's at my sister's house. It's ok. It's definitely suitable for practice, but it sounds cheesy with the cheap speakers. Much better than nothing, but I wouldn't perform with it.
