We would recommend these pianos for beginners that just want to find something cheap to get started with. Players who have played for a while will probably not be satisfied with it since the keys aren’t weighted hammer action and it’s not full size keys wise.

This is the piano to go for if you wish you were able to have an acoustic piano but you need the benefits of a digital one. It sounds good and is easy to use. If you don’t want an abundance of buttons that you have no clue what they are, you will like this piano!
