Maybe interesting to note is that because of the upcoming PX-S1000, you now see heavy discounts on older ones. In Europe the new Casio PX-S1000 is going for around 640 Euro, but for only 20 euro extra you can get the older (but more versatile) Casio Privia Pro PX-5S. Only 660 Euro now!

You wonder, is the keybed action of PX-S1000 really that much better or just different? If the keybed action between "Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II" and "new scaled hammer action" in PX-S1000 are more or less the same, then you get a remarkable deal with the PX-5S

Does the PX-S1000 be able to use as a midi keyboard for playing some vst through my computer? The midi got me confused between the s1000 and s3000.

That is never the issue, as long as you have midi / USB, which is normal nowadays, then you can play other instrument sounds via VSTs. However, if you want a master keyboard, to control more aspects of midi, VSTs and DAWs, then you better choose something else, for instance the now cheaper PX-5S.

Its really frustrating that neither GC nor SAm Ash in my area had one out despite GC saying on website they were in the store. OT same thing with the Grandstage-

They did have the CDPS100 (or whatever its called that is newer as well) but I wasn't that in to it-nothing wrong just wasnt my cup of tea

My Casio PX-S1000 was delivered three days ago. My experience has been mostly pleasant, as the simplicity of its design and layout is really great, the built in piano sample and dynamic range is pretty good, and the build quality is pretty nice including the textured key-tops. For the price, it would be hard to beat. With one caveat...

As mentioned earlier in the thread, there was concern about the length of the key fulcrums and action playability, considering how small the action is. It is indeed significantly more difficult to play towards the top of the keys. The laws of physics apply here making it difficult for me to get a totally even tone.
crazy
I realize you can't have everything in one DP, and this one has a lot, from is battery powered portability to its striking design to its very reasonable price tag. The sounds and overall action playability are also pretty good. I am going to college next semester and am intent on replacing my (sold) concert grand and old P120 with a DP that will suit my needs both as a gigging student and an avid classical pianist. Still debating whether it's worth the tradeoffs.

In the meantime, I've been eyeing the P515.... although doubling the weight and size from my px-s1000 is not appealing and I'm seeing mixed opinions on it's action playability. Does anybody here have thoughts on 515 in this context?

Decisions, decisions...

That's too bad. Can you return it for free or a restocking fee?

As was obvious all the time. smirk

Not to say that new Casio S models need to be bad. They just might not then be suitable for everybody. Like somewhat advanced classical players for example.

Thats my experience also with CDP S100, it is same size, I mention earlier that from my short experience with this piano I feel like there is a small problem to play between the keys. Unfortunately I was in a rush to stay and play it more, so after couple of minutes I wasn`t sure what to think about it. Creative piano guy now have it in his home, so his opinion is more valid. As I already said, it is fantastic mobile solution.

The PX-s1000 is replacing the lowest privia models so obviously the real reviews from advanced and trained player will be mixed. I'd say the consensus will be "good deal for the money", which should be the measuring stick here. Not sure why the overwhelming optimism that this will be $2K piano for third of the price.

I've tried the 515 at store but they still don't have s1000 for comparison. IMO as a classical pianist, the feels of the 515 is not bad. Though 1 thing i don't like is the bounce and the clunk noise. it's significantly louder and feel lighter than the roland (102, fp30 etc) thus i liked the roland a little better.
Been eyeing on the s1000 myself. Do you think its a decent enough keyboard to do practices?

At least I now know I won't have to eat my own hat. (a YouTuber actually *did* eat a tiny bit of his hat, and it was extremely difficult)

Let's ask the other way: How is this superior to a Kawai ES100 (older action with pivot length on par with CLP-645) and ES110 (newer action)?

There is absolutely no problem to play those between keys.

Why do I ask: They sell at roughly the same price at Thomann (In fact ES110 is currently 70 € cheaper than the PX-S1000).

I don`t think it is superior, I have ES100 also, it is better to keep it if we talking about playability, but definitely Casio is very compact size and looks good and as such it is better for traveling and in every situation where we need more space for example under the table like I need. I want to replace my Kawai ES100 with Casio because I keep it in my office (where I am working) under the table and Casio is 4cm less height and for my legs it is better fit.

Everyone was talking about the newly designed scaled Hammer keybed, so I would be very interested in how this compares to Casio PX-160 (tri-sensor ||) and the famous Roland FP-30 action. The small format design and portability might appeal to some, but if the action is not really better, then all the excitement is for nothing.

Well, Creative Piano Guy says above that it is difficult to control the keys near the fallboard, so it sounds like the action is not as improved as it would need to be to actually be comparable to a DP with a longer pivot.

Yes, I saw it, hence my slightly disappointed remark. I have put it as a question, as we might get more reviews, maybe the consensus is better, but this 1st review is not encouraging.
