That looks really neat, Tritium. . . .you could gig it with a bit o` help from a trolley . . your guitars? I was in the piano shop lately, looking at some. The imitation Stratocasters were more expensive than the real ones . . .! Fancied a Jazz bass meself . .

Now that I have had a chance to spend a good amount of time with the PX-850, I am still amazed with what Casio has been able to provide a pianist on a budget. There is so much to like here...from the very expressive action, the impressive piano tones, as well as the onboard speaker system, which is quite powerful as well as immersive...especially when opening up the top lid.

Cons:
I do wish that Casio had provided for a bit more ability to tweak key paramaters, such as "Touch Sensitivity". It would have been really cool if there was a software editor program, which would allow the user to dive deeper into settings and provide greater fine-tuning. I can understand that they wanted to keep the User Interface / Control Panel simple...but a Software Editor would have been just icing on the cake.

For example, the aforementioned "Touch Sensitivity" has four levels (actually three, as "off" doesn't really count). I wish there was more adjustment, here, because I find myself wanting to select something in between 1 and 2 (e.g. 1.5). Alas, that is not possible.

Mike Martin of Casio, if you happen to read this, do you know if there are any plans for something like a Software editor on the PX-X50 series?

Love the post. The entire planet is having problems regardless of which country you are referring to trying keep to a budget. My city is going to start hiring security guards at $20 an hour to do some easy police work, as opposed to hiring police men at 100,000 dollars a year, or 10 police men for - what is it - a millions dollars for 10 good men in uniform.
