Got told this for 600 dollars was a bad offer when I cant find one on Ebay under 700 and going up to 900, I have been told he will lower the price to 500 and it comes with pedal and stand, is this worth it?

Why do you keep starting new threads on the same topic?

This model was released in 1999, which makes it positively ancient in the digital piano/stage piano universe. It’s been years since I’ve touched one, so I don’t really have any advice. How are you intending to use it and what pieces do you play? A DP with a polyphony of 32 is really low-end nowadays.

You can get a new DP with better piano samples, a better action, and a new piano warranty (and it will last longer) for a little over $850 with a stand and pedals. For most users, I’d recommend that instead of spending $500+ on 20 year old gear you haven’t tested in person.

I will just use it as a midi, and I will test it in person, and its 500 not, nothing over 500

If you just need a MIDI keyboard, I’d suggest grabbing a new 61 key model for $250 or less that doesn’t have a weighted hammer action.

My mistake, my primary purpose is for it to be used as midi, but I want a full sized with weighted keys, I currently have an arturia Keylab 88 Essential but it's just not right for me.

Why should a weighted keyboard from 1999 be better than what you have now? An Alesis QS8 or Quadrasynth Plus Piano from that era is at least as good (better in my opinion) and can be purchased for about $125-175. There is no way I would pay $500 for a Kurzweil SP88X. It is $320 used at a dealer (also more than I would pay for it):

and a current model is $599:
