I finally settled with my Kawai ES110. After 3 swaps finally one which keybed is okay. If it develops noises further down the road I will send it to fix or call a Kawai guy.

But after all this you know what? It was worth it. The sound, accuracy and lightness of its key action - to me - is worth it because it is the best I have ever tried.
If however you want a keybed with a little more weight when pressing the keys, choose the ES8 or MP7SE.
To me I like a lighter action the most.

Now its up to you!

This reminds me of my ES100 sent via DHL from a well known European online music store about four years ago.

While all keys were working fine, their velocity output was weirdly reduced to a range of 100 instead of 127 and as a result everything just sounded dull, regardless of the touch setting. So after doing numerous factory resets and MIDI remapping tests I returned it. Of course, the store didn't find any problems and returned it back to me again with a MIDI-OX test protocol proving that my ES100 can produce the full velocity range. Strangely enough after going through the torture of shipping three times, the piano suddenly was working at my home, too. I didn't even have to hook it up to my computer to check, because the tonal difference was immediately audible at the first notes played.

After that episode nothing changed during the almost four years of use. Some notes are a bit louder than others and occasionally it's losing some lubricant through one of the bottom screw holes on hot days, but longevity doesn't seem to be an issue for the AHA-IV-F action of the ES100. Meanwhile it also survived a move by a professional moving company. Everything is still working fine.

Hello, my ES110 came this week- this is going to be my travel board. I am getting an exchange- the 2nd to last Aflat did make a click/thump twice but havent heard since then. However A4 sometimes gets stuck a little or doesn't completely go down perfectly to hit the 127 velocity it seems. Then other times it is okay.

I've had to return the P105 before 2X, PX350 1x- the SP280 at some point made clicking noises- part could be to due shipping/UPS.
I like the piano in general, it sounds great (ES110) with headphones as well as combined with my Electrovoice ZXa90
