It’s solid, large, feels good, has some weight, the sustain pedal is cheaply made (didn’t work actually, settled for a partial refund, no biggie). This is a great alternative for a parent that doesn’t want to blow a lot of cash for something their not sure if their child is going to stick with in terms of lessons, meaning its a lot of piano for very little cost. All I can say about the weighted key is that they feel better than most of the other portable type pianos. It’s usable, get what you pay for in sound quality, is what it is…
I am happy to have 88 keys and they do have some dynamics capabilities but I am disappointed. They are pretty heavy, meaning it takes some effort to push them down, a bit more than a typical piano. There isn’t much in the way of dynamic range. It definitely sounds electric, or rather like a recording of real instruments.
But once we figured it out, assembly was not so hard. You can also choose other colors and models. Has just been put together and item looks impressive. Has not been used yet as my son has been unwell hence the four stars..
The CDP-S150 has 10 total sounds, and the three grand piano sounds—standard, mellow, and bright—were the best of the bunch. I preferred the standard sound, but I can see uses for the other two when you’re playing with other instruments, either to sit back a bit in the texture with the mellow sound or to peek out a bit with the bright sound. The digital piano and organ sounds were also very good. Brent particularly liked the B3 organ sound, and I thought the rotary-speaker sound effect added to the realism. Unfortunately, the harpsichord and string sounds were lackluster and disappointing, as the harpsichord’s note samples felt incomplete, and the strings sounded sterile and had a decidedly digital quality. But unless you’re experimenting with sounds, you’ll barely touch the harpsichord and strings, if at all.

Something that doesn’t matter as much to me but is interesting to note is that there are supposed to be a whole bunch of sounds. There are about 134 or so and then they repeat with just a slight change in sound. So you’ll get the harp and then harp-1, harp-2, etc In my mind that means that there are only just over 130 sounds vs 800. I don’t know how it compares to others of this price range. I am glad to have it and my children will be able to get more than they were from their electric keyboard with 61 keys with zero dynamic capabilities or weight to the keys. I’m happy to be able to play something that is closer to a real piano than what I had but I wish I had the budget for a better one.

But, when you plug in the headphones it does work, but you can still hear the sound outside (i.e. while playing it with headphones it’s still heard without it). I don’t really know how to fix it, but for now, the piano itself is okay. She’s been playing the piano for many years and we wanted to get something smaller and less expensive for the house. It’s a good size and the sound quality is nice. She said it doesn’t sound exactly like the piano she plays at church but a close second.
This piano lacks a digital readout, but adjusting sounds and other functions is still easy enough. In piano lingo, action describes the way the piano keys feel when you press them. With a digital piano, the closer the action is to that of an acoustic piano, the better. Semi-weighted action uses a spring to create the resistance you feel when pressing a key and its rebound when you lift your finger.
