It's $300. What are u expecting?
If you want it to sound like a grand piano, then I suggest connecting it to some nice monitors.
Even cheap $100 keyboards have midi these days.

I would avoid Korg. There keyboards are junk unless you spend $3000. But then even that has 10yr old pc parts inside.. lol

I am considering the Yamaha P-125. Kraft music has a nice package for $599 including stand and bench. If you are looking for a lower pricepoint, I would consider the Yamaha p-45. Yamaha digital piano sounds are considered the best in the industry.

C'mon... I had a 1987 Casio HT-700, which I think I paid $100 for at the time, with midi in/out. My 1998 Casio CTK-611, which I still have and is still awesome, and cost $109 at the time (RIP, Value America) has midi in/out.

It's inexcusable for any keyboard without a picture of Elmo or Spongeball Squarebob on it not to have midi today. ESPECIALLY a unit being marketed as a "digital piano".

Have u looked into the new Casio Privia ? Px-s1000 and 3000. I'm between that, Roland fp30 and p125 from Yamaha. Any insight from experienced people would be appreciated!

See if you can find comparisons on YouTube. I saw several videos comparing the Yamaha, Roland, and Casio. To me, the Casio sounded the worst, but I'm not sure what model it was. I have a Yamaha P-115 and it sounds great and the keys feel very nice. I bought it used with bench and stand really cheaply.

Both Roland and Casio are worthy. My decision to choose the Yamaha P-125 are based on Yamaha's build reputation ( I had a Yamaha DX7 for about 15 years ) and the interactive and teaching smart piano app that can connect the P-125 to an iPad and make it a little more fun for my kids. I'm a little more biased with Yamaha products since we go back a few years.

Been looking at reviews for different piano keyboards and came across this blog site. Not sure if anyone else is familiar with it, but worth considering for reviews.

Agreed. I also recommend the p-45 which is best bang for the buck with weighted keys. There is an amazon version of the p-45 which is called the Yamaha p71. Pretty much the same piano with a lower price and amazon exclusive. XD

I've had one of these for almost a year now and have been very happy with it. My main point of comparison is a Yamaha upright, and the key feel is very workable for practice purposes. I don't compose, so I have zero need for MIDI- I just needed a practice piano and this does the job well. I played a p45 and p115 in a store, unfortunately they didn't have the Korg to do a direct comparison but I think the B1 is closer to the 115 than the 45
