Casio Privia PX-850 Review

The Casio Privia series has been so poplar, and now their latest versions have come along.

At the top of the line is Casio Privia PX-850 which is a digital piano that has that Casio sound which I have tried to describe in these various reviews.

I feel the Casios have a really good sampling instrument.

You can find the Casio Privia PX 850 on Amazon here.

Roland FP-7F Review: Latest Model Roland FP7 Review

My Overall Rating: stars

Roland FP 7F available as a bundle package price at BHPhoto.com

If you’re looking for a digital piano that sounds the most like a live grand piano, at half the cost of other digital pianos, then you’ve got to have a look at the Roland FP-7F digital piano.

After trying many digital pianos from Yamahas, to Casios to Rolands, and others including Kurtzweil and more, the Rolands win out in my ears. When comparing the Roland FP-4F and the Roland FP-7F, both are great keyboards, but the FP-7F is better and is a different experience.

When you play the FP 4F it’s a great sound, but when you play the FP 7F, you almost believe that you are playing an acoustic grand piano – something that is very difficult to achieve with digital pianos. I will also compare this with the V piano by Roland in a moment, and see why the V piano is in my opinion no match for the FP 7F.
