The CDP-100 is a great practice piano for anyone who is looking for a temporary-somewhat portable piano to practice on.
The sound is decent, I really like the headphone jack feature which allows me to plug in my headphones when I practice. With the headphones on the notes sound crisp and sharp, however relying on just the built-in speakers the piano sounds a little dull and could be louder. The foot pedal isn't that great, I found myself holding it down the entire time to hear the effect; but it's a minor issue. The weighted-hammer keys feel just like real piano, really great.

I am very happy with the CDP-100 and highly recommend this as a piano for people who don't have the money/space for a real piano. As a college student, I think this is the perfect keyboard since I can put on my headphones in when I practice and not disturb my roommates.

However, Don't make the mistake I made in buying the CDP-100 for $399! After I bought this, guitar center had a holiday special and was selling the CDP-100 for $299, so check there first!

I purchased a used version of this based off the previous reviews. I definitely agree the weighted keyboard has a nice feel to it (this is coming from someone who's used acoustic pianos in the past) and the keyboard itself is very slim & not too heavy...easy to carry around.

What was really disappointing was the sound...it sounds a little masked, not sharp/crisp. I'm not very picky, I just wanted a full keyboard to practice on, but this was something that bothered me. I actually was able compare it to a Casio WK-200 (which is a cheaper keyboard) & surprisingly the CDP-100 sounded worse than it's cheaper counterpart.

I brushed off someone's previous comment about the sound because I figured it couldn't be that bad. It is that bad, so take this into consideration if you're planning to purchase.

We purchased this item for my wife who is an acoomplished pianist. She has a grand piano and has played and taught piano (private and college level).

Reason for purchase, to have a portable item that could be used by us in churches or situations where a decent paino was not available. This unit is very portable. A little bulkier then the smaller keyboards but you do have the benefit of a standard piano keyboard.

She is happy with the tone quality and action of the keys. The Casio will definately handle most of the music that she would play.

She realizes that this does not compare to her grand piano but she admits that it is an excellent item for the money.

The only drawback is that it does not have a dedicated line to hook into an amplifier. An adapter has to be used on the headphones jack.

Definately a good buy.

This is the best deal in 88 weighted keyboards these days, hands down. Not sure why Casio thought it was a good idea to have a nice board but then put only one piece of crap stereo 1/8 inch jack output. I guess it's their way of saying "You haven't paid enough to actually use this thing for anything professional." Would it have killed them to put a couple more useable outs on this thing for an extra 15 cents?
Other than that, the speakers suck, but the board is pretty nice and it's light weight. I gave it 4 stars because of the price, which is actually a good deal, and midi outs make it useable as a controller for recording.

I keep my CDP-100 at my office, for occasional use while figuring out chords, working out a transposition or just zoning out. The one time I took it out to a gig, I was stunned and embarrassed to discover that it had no line out -- there was no way to amplify it unless I was willing to use the 3.5mm headphone jack!

I now have a second Casio, a Privia PX-330, which is a terrific gigging piano because of its incredibly light weight (it's truly a one-handed carry), and great array of sounds (including decent organ tones), but I'm glad I didn't sell my CDP-100. It does have MIDI, which has proved handy for building tracks in GarageBand on a couple of occasions.

I have been pleased with the built-in speakers, when I've had occasion to use them -- I think they're well-tuned to the tones of the keyboard.

I spend a lot of time arranging existing songs my beginning piano students. I had been entering in notes one at a time in Sibelius but finally decided to invest in a keyboard with MIDI capability so that I may play in the notes rather than point and click them in one at a time. The hammer-action keys work pretty well, although it cannot replace the feel of a piano for playing trills, repeated notes, and big chords. The keyboard comes with a plastic sustain pedal, but you will have to upgrade to a sturdier, quieter pedal if you expect to make music. I recommend the M-Audio sustain pedal. The other thing I like about the Casio CDP-100 is that it doesn't have all of those distracting, annoying features (e.g. 100 rhythms, 200 tones, 50 songs, light-up keys, etc.). I just wanted a basic keyboard with weighted action, a decent tone quality, and MIDI function, and that's exactly what I got!

Keep in mind that the buzzing sound you hear in the video is feedback noise from my recording equipment being too close to the keyboard. Otherwise, the sound quality is okay, although the speakers don't play very loud even on max. I usually play with headphones, and it sounds amazing! See my review of the Sennheiser HD 202 Dynamic Headphones, which sell on Amazon for <$30. You could probably also just plug in some external speakers if volume is a concern for you. My only other issue with this keyboard is the price. Other retailers lower the price to $299 (from $399) during the holidays. Overall, this is a good instrument for the price and perfect for an adult beginner.
