here is amazon reciew..
This is the next best thing to actually owning an actual piano, I know there is a lot of competition in this area of the market for portable electronic piano's. I spent months reading reviews and going to guitar center and other music stores to text different models and speak with sales staff. It was also a very good way to hear all of the different offerings in specific category. The reason I chose this model was there was very little difference in main features and options you would use actively.
The one thing that I was not able to verify at the time of research prior to purchase was if you could effectively half pedal while playing. Thus far I am not 100% sure even with a good after market pedal if you are truly reproducing it as you would on a real piano.

Some other differences are you don't get a custom stand or a set of pedals but that is at the benefit of portability and storage. It is not light even without the batteries so be aware of this if you are wondering. The built in speakers will be loud enough for home use and may require a set of sensheiser headphones or similar brand. This makes it great for the beginner and everyone else sharing a living space. There is a dual jack for listening on a 2nd set of headphones as well and USB port for using your own music and creating it with the on board digital recorder.

This is a piano not a synth but it does have some synth sounds if you do need them, if you need more get a synth but the keys will not be weighted. This is a great beginner piano that won't break the bank and will last with proper TLC through more than one person. Music instructors will always recommend an actual piano but they also understand we all can't bang away with impunity for our neighbors. So they graciously adapt and will also have you practice on an electric piano if you have structured lessons.

There are "better" and more expensive makes and models out there but you will only be getting a few more options, sounds, and a really cool stand. But you will be hard pressed to find a better value to price ratio. Casio will extend the warranty on your device if you register it shortly after buying it. At least this was the case when I bought mine. I would also recommend a heavier duty double X portable stand as anything else smaller will only add additional angst as it wobbles back and forth when playing.

Pros:

Excellent contruction and feeling of the keys
Large amount of options for different sounds and features
No tuning or other piano related maintenance
Portable but it is heavier than expected compared to a synth
Can use batteries
Built in speakers and dual headphone jacks

Cons:

It is heavy so a better stand is required
Does not come with music editing software (such as Cubase or Ableton)
Does not come with headphones or dust cover
Menus and metronome are sometimes hard to navigate

Overall I think this is a great electronic piano for the beginners, enthusiasts, and budding professionals. I would highly recommend it for small living spaces and cost effective piano sound reproduction. I am sure there are better brands out there but for the price this is IMHO the best bang for the buck.
