Looks like Musician's Friend has this for the same price, except it might be backordered:

DP's greater than 1k, there is alot more variation and subtle nuances, features, and action quality that professionals and teachers will pay for so that would be a whole different topic. The following is the common consensus on portable, consumer grade digital pianos (all with scaled graded keyboard actions) under $1000 retail.

1. Kawai ES110 - $800 retail - Limited features and sounds. Widely considered the best with the most realistic keyboard action for under $1000 retail. Highly respected brand. Rarely heavily discounted.
2. Roland FP-30 - $800 retail - Limited features and sounds. Consider the 2nd best keyboard action for under $1000, however, many teachers and experienced piano players do not like the action. Rarely heavily discounted.
3. Casio PX-360 - $900 retail - Feature rich. Keyboard action is good but noisy. A best value for what you get. Frequently discounted.
4. Casio PX-160 - $500 retail - Limited features and sounds. Same keyboard action as the Casio PX-360. A best value for what you get. Frequently discounted.
5. Yamaha DGX- 660 - $800 - Feature rich. Keyboard action is good but lighter than the Casios.
6. Yamaha P-115 - $600 retail - Limited features and sounds. Same keyboard action as the Yamaha DGX-660.
7. Korg B-1 - $500 retail - Limited features and sounds. Many experienced piano players consider the keyboard action soft and springy compared to all the above. Relatively cheap feeling action but consider it's the lowest cost with available discounts.

Casio got a bad rap in the 80's and 90's for producing cheap toys and electronics, however, they are not the company of that era. Casio has made great strides in their digital pianos for a decade or more and are now considered one of the top 3 digital piano brands in production and quality. Their keyboard action on their PX and AP series is considered one of the better consumer grade ones in the industry. People often consider Casio a "best value" as you usually will get more features and options for the money compared to competing brands in the same price range.

How does it compare with Yamaha P115 or PX860/70 or Roland FP 400? Anything major missing?

This one is good quality. Not sure about the other models you mentioned though.

I think it shares the same key PHA-4 key action as the FP-400 and also uses the SuperNATURAL Piano sound engine. So the difference would be instrument sounds and features, cabinet etc

Don't know how it compares to Yamaha.

That was my take from the very few reviews available but at this price (<50%), FP-30 should be worth it.

I've wanted to learn piano and have been looking digital pianos for some time. I'm probably going to order this too. I figure I won't lose a$1,000+ if I realize that I have no talent for playing.

I see Casio when someone is wearing a plastic watch Smilie

Seriously. Casio has made strides in digital pianos. Probably puts pressure on Roland, Yamaha and Kawai to make better lower end pianos. But right now, I'm looking for the best inexpensive piano that I can actually learn on which doesn't feel like a toy.

did ask - "why roland" Wink the answer was : how you press the keys (where and how hard, etc. - I do not play - laugh out loud - my SO does !) and how it sounds ?! roland is the closest one to a real piano ! not saying Casio is bad ! but mostly I see roland Rock

I was basically looking for a good key action and this has a good one for the money. Pretty sure this can be used as a USB to Midi controller in the future if one wants to use it to control piano software and get better sounds.
