In my opinion;

Either the Casio AP-260, Casio PX-160, or Yamaha P115 is a good "entry-level" digital piano.

I think that the Casio AP-260 is basically a Casio PX-160, in a wooden cabinet. The PX-160 is close competition to the Yamaha P115 -- similar features, similar quality of sound. _I_ prefer the "feel" of the PX-160 keyboard, but other people disagree.

If you want an instrument that _looks like_ a piano, the AP-260 will be good. The AP-260 weighs roughly 40 kilos.

If you want something that you can carry around, the PX-160 or P115 would be better -- each one weighs about 12 kilos. If you buy a PX-160 or P115, you can add a wooden stand, but the case on the AP-260 is much nicer.

Based on your budget I would recommend Roland fp30 or Kawai es110

Casio AP-270 would be the latest model, but probably a bit more expensive.

Casio improved the main piano sound and added a different new one, so you have two to choose from. (And probably some subtle variations of those)

Demo video here. And there's already more on YouTube.

hehe, yes i would love to get those too, especially kawai es110, but there are not kawai in my country, and Roland is too expensive more than $ 1000 (only in VIP, aristocratics stores) in Perú T_T. just Casio (almost close to the international price), Yamaha and Korg, adding 400 $ to the normal price in USA or Spain. =(

Imported Kawai ES 100 costs $1472
and Roland FP 30 : $2310

Casio AP 260:$ 950
Yamaha P 115: $850

Hi Girsth,

I don't know the Casio AP260. The acoustic-piano sound of the similar Casio PX-160 is both too dull and too tinny for me. For a blind comparison of the acoustic-piano sounds of the PX-160 and the Yamaha P115, see

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvRfl1tRs-M

I own a P115 and am very satisfied with the quality of its 14 sounds (voices). However, the GHS key action of the P115 is not very good according to me and many posts on this forum. Also, the dynamic range of the P115 is small. One can record on two tracks of only one song on the P115. For three reviews of the P115, see
