Adorama has Korg B2N 88-Key Lighter-Touch Digital Piano w/ Audio & MIDI USB on sale for $299 (price reflected in cart). Shipping is free.

Thanks to Deal Editor iconian for sharing this deal.

About this item:
  • The B2N is equipped with the NT (Natural Touch) keyboard newly developed by Korg. It reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, with heavier action in the low register and a lighter feel in the upper register, while distinctively providing a great-feeling sense of key-strike that is not fatiguing even during extended playing sessions. It's also the ideal piano for children who are being introduced to piano for the first time.
  • The B2N is light not only in its touch but also in form factor. It weighs 9.3 kg, approximately 2 kg lighter than the standard B2. You can use the dedicated SC-B2N soft case (sold separately) to transport it.

So if you listen to accomplished piano players out there, they will say that lighter keyboards are only good for the first 6 months or so of piano lessons. Without weighted keys, the person learning will not develop the proper muscles/technique and stamina to play an actual piano properly.

Is it any good for a beginner? I'm considering getting this as a gift and I'm trying to figure out if this would be the right choice.

It's more than enough for beginners. This is lighter keyboard, so If you want "grand piano feel", get weighted hammer keyboard.

Really nice deal here - I am personally waiting for Roland FP30X but I would snag this if I didn't want the weighted keys. There was a kawai keyboard posted not long ago -also very good

True. But that's not portable and it only makes one sound. This can go anywhere. And with midi sound like anything.

A real piano is certainly the real deal. Agreed. But this is effectively a different instrument.

I don't recommend a light keyboard. If you get used to light keys, it will be difficult to precisely play hammer keys. Always get hammer keyboard with 88 keys.

Of course a real piano is the real deal, but unless it has a silent player system you're likely going to upset family or neighbors (depending on your living situation) if you do start getting serious and practice a lot... And those systems aren't exactly cheap and the vast majority of good used acoustic pianos don't have them. Digital pianos with decent action still tend to be A LOT cheaper and solve this problem (plus no regular tuning required).

A Casio CDP-S100 for not much more money would be a much better choice.

Anything is "good" for someone who has no prior experience and wanting to start learning. This would be more than enough for someone who just want to see if they'll like learning to play or not. It won't be much of a loss if they decide it's not their thing.

However, I just purchased the Kawai ca49 posted in another thread for my 6yo. My son have had 13 lessons and he's already telling me that he likes the sound and the action of his teacher's grand piano. I didn't want to get an acoustic because of the tuning and weight. Even the professionals practices on digital. So unless you think you're going to perform on Broadway one day, a digital is more than good enough

Real pianos are boring.
