for our piano player. Acoustic piano sound is most important. Synth patches not important. It's got to fit into a car back seat, hence the willingness to go less than 88. Reasonable price is good too.

What do you consider reasonable price? If you say something like 200 bucks keyboard players will laugh at you.

Fatar/Studiologic.

They're not fancy, and they're ugly, but they feel pretty good. No on-board sounds though - if I were back to being a gigging piano player I'd go with this keyboard and a laptop for samples (e.g., Alicia's Keys from Native Instruments sounds excellent and is all of $99 I think).

I'd buy from somewhere with a good return policy (e.g., Musician's Friend) though as quality control isn't great. With that said, I was quite proud of myself for fixing a couple of broken keys on mine.

For $700 you can get a Casio Privia PX-330. 88 keys with decent weighed action. Light and readily portable.

I have one. They're surprisingly good-sounding for the money. I realize that Casio has a bit of a stigma, but this keyboard is nothing to be ashamed of

I was keyboard shopping last year, I got the idea that $700 was the line where real instuments start and leave student/accessory models behind. All brands have one for 700. You can get em for 600 if theres one of those 15% off sales going on.

The above mentioed Casio has been getting good reveiws as has Korg SP-250

I like watching demos on youtube, but they can make anything look nice.

Casio Privia series. I have the PX-300. The PX-330 is the upgrade over that. 88 keys, surprisingly good piano sound, and lightweight (25lbs).
