Hi guys and girls!

I'm sure this sort of thing is posted on here all the time so I apologise for being repetitive!!

My wife took up learning the pink around 9 months ago. I bought her a cheap used Casio keyboard off eBay to get her started but now she's to a point where she's looking the the more realistic feel of a piano as well as the extra keys and pedals that a piano offers.

We've been in to a music shop locally and tried a few of their digital pianos today. We tried many many pianos but the only two in our price range are the entry level models, those being the Yamaha YDP143 and the Casio AP270. My wife preferred the sound of the Yamaha through the speakers but the Casio through the headphones. She also preferred the weight of the Yamaha keys but the texture of the Casio keys. So we're now stuck for choice!!

We've checked best prices and found the Casio to be around £70 cheaper than the Yamaha. However we've seen on eBay a few older models, for example a Yamaha YDP141 for substantially cheaper!

I'm really just looking for advice and people's opinions on these entry level pianos. I know the choice is purely subjective but if anyone can think of anything we may have missed, that might help us make a decision!!

Thanks in advance!

I know the forums' organization can be sometimes confusing to new visitors, but you may be able to get more responses from the Digital Piano Forum:
