The Detailed Analysis
Coming directly to the point, the sound of the Casio PX 150 have been completely redesigned.
The sound of Casio PX 150 is generated by the new A I R sound source. A I R meaning Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator.
When you’re using the damper pedal or sustain pedal you hear the sound of the damper virtually lifting off the strings.
When you touch the Piano you will surely find the entire body of the acoustic piano feels superb and is well built, and the sounds of PX 150 is incredibly natural and wonderful.

Privia PX 150 also features a new redesigned keyboard action. It has a scaled weighted hammer action keys, meaning that the keys are heavier on the low-end and lighter as you move up just to simulate the hammer weights of an acoustic piano.
In addition the key tops on the PX 150 have a new ebony and ivory texture which feels much better than the plastic key that you find on some cheap digital pianos.
The Ebony and Ivory textures feels just like the keys of an acoustic grand piano and your hand is able to move around the keyboard very easily very nicely.
The Casio Privia PX-150 feature 18 different instrument tones on board. Five of those are acoustic grand piano sounds but you will also get electric pianos, organs, strings and bass. And the best part is you can split and layer the keyboard at the same time, so you can have bass in your left hand with piano and strings in your right.

Privia PX 150 also has two headphones outs on the back so student and teacher can work together without disturbing anyone else in the house.
The another great benefit that the keyboard has is the remarkably portable body. Although its weights around 25 pounds which is not much (25 pound is the lightest weighted action digital piano in the world) so you can carry your board wherever you like for rehearsals or performance.
The PX 150 includes a songbook with 60 songs and with that those songs themselves are built into the keyboard in fact you can play independently on the left and right hand parts as you follow along with the music and slow them down, it is a all in one great teaching tool.
You can also use their two track recorder to record your own performances so it’s great way for you to compose your own music on the PX 150.

Any device such as an Apple iPad or all Privia products are class compliant. So you just need to plug into your computer and they work without having to downloads drivers.
In addition to the songbook the PX 150 ships with a footswitch a music rack and the included power supply and owner’s manual.
So, In short I can conclude that Casio Privia PX 150 is good piano if you are a beginner or an intermediate. The price of Casio Privia PX 150 is also not on higher end and is worth your investment if you are a serious toward your music.
