I am making a final decision in the next 30 minutes and agonizing over my choice. My piano teacher says both instruments play with very similar quality. The Kawai looks nicer, like a solid piece of furniture rather than keyboard on a stand. Kawai cn23 for $650 used but excellent apparent condition. Or New Roland fp30 with stand for $760 out the door. Please and thank you!!

If you can get a warranty or return within 3 weeks even on the kawai, I think you'd like it better overall. That's what I would get.

After 35 minutes, I vote for the FP30.
