[UPDATE 11/2013 In my original review, I talked about a "conspiracy" between major piano makers to not sell traditional-looking pianos for less than $2,000. Casio definitely upset the status quo with its X20 series, including the Celviano AP-620. Unfortunately, Casio took a step backwards with the successor to the AP-620, the AP-650. Unlike the AP-620 which was available from a large number of internet retailers, the AP-650 is distributed only through "piano and organ" stores. There are apparently restrictions on advertising and interstate sales of the new model. It looks like the dealers are holding pretty close to a $1995 price point. The good news is that one big dealer apparently bought up a large stock of AP-620s before Casio discontinued them, and this dealer is blowing them out for less than a thousand dollars. If you do a Google search, you will find the dealer.This inventory can't last long. I wouldn't be surprised if they are gone by the end of the Black Friday weekend. (I don't have any connection to any music dealer or Casio; I'm just an owner of an AP-620.)]

[UPDATE 2/2013 Be on the lookout for the AP620's successor, the AP650. The AP650 Celviano, from the pictures I've seen, looks almost identical to the AP620. Casio is claiming the AP650 has three times the wave memory in the piano sounds and a new model for string resonance. Beyond that, it doesn't seem to be very different from the AP620. From trolling web message boards, it seems that the people who have experience with the new AP650 have the same opinion of it as the AP620 with the consensus being that it is a nice looking piano and you get a lot of features for the money but the decay time on the piano sounds is shorter than some other pianos.

I upgraded from a Casio Privia to the Celviano 620 and my first introduction to it was helping the UPS man heft it from the truck and into my living room. The package, which is as big as most freezers, weighed 137 pounds. Once it was in the house I unpacked it, a job in itself as the packaging seems to be designed to withstand being dropped from a cliff. Short of utter destruction, I don't think any jostling or mishaps in route could penetrate the packaging enough to harm the contents.

So what of the piano? It was simple to assemble, and although the blurb says two people are needed to assemble it, I did it by myself with my cat supervising the operation. The wooden cabinet is quite nice. The pictures on the internet don't do it justice, and the solidity and stability of the assembled unit is reassuring, especially if you engage in vigorous playing. This piano sits firmly in place and is going nowhere. I plugged it in and began playing with it. The feel of the keys is exquisite. My teacher has a Steinway, and the keys of the Celviano approximate the weight and feel of the keys. The sound is excellent, especially through headphones. The sampling seems superior to my year-and-a-half old Privia.

The pedals have a good push to them, actually a little heavier than my teacher's Steinway so if you play a piece with a lot of pedal you'll build up your leg muscles fairly quickly. All three pedals do what they're supposed to, and to my ear the effects are identical to an acoustic piano.

The onboard music library has an excellent selection, and you get a book with sheet music for the music in the library. This is very handy if you happen to be learning any of these pieces--and I am, both Scott Joplin selections are pieces on which I'm working.

We purchased our AP-620 from a local music store about a month ago. Our sons have been taking lessons for a few years now and don't seem to be loosing interest in continuing with it, so we decided tho upgrade from the cheapo $100 electronic keyboard we had to something closer to a real piano. We also wanted something that would look nice in our living room.

They compared the feel of the Celviano AP-420's keyboard to the comparable Yamaha digital piano. While both were nice, they prefered the lighter feel of the Celviano to the somewhat heavier key action on the Yamaha.

We decided to go with the AP-620 because while I'm not a musician, I am a tech/gadget person. For the extra $300, I liked all of the other instruments/sounds, rhythms, SD slot, having dedicated buttons for the features rather than holding down a function button and pressing a key on the keyboard, LCD screen, and more powerful amplifier. I also preferred the black of the AP-620 over the brown of the AP-420. However, the key action and standard piano sounds are identical between the 420 and the 620.

Assembly was pretty straight-forward, and took about 1.5 hours taking a leisurely approach and having the kids help. The keyboard portion comes full assembled, and you just need a screwdriver to assemble the stand and bench. The stand is made from the typical particle board w/wood vaneer that most furniture is made from today, with some metal crossbeams to add support and secure the front legs. Given the materials, the quality was high, with no warping or sepatation of the vaneer from the wood, no noticable gaps once the stand was assembled, as well as being quite sturdy once everything was screwed down.

The bench is all metal, with an easily adjustable height for the seat portion.
