"Impressive sound, great look"
I don't plan to "upgrade" or replace this one for years, if ever (as long as it keeps working). It looks good, like a nice upright without the weight, it never needs maintenance/tuning or specialty movers (the best features for an apartment dweller/younger person likely to move a lot in the future!), it has good sound, and it is easy to use. I'm very pleased with this piano.

Sound
Fantastic sound for a digital piano, better than I expected. The weighted keys are as responsive as a real piano and the pedals function well.

Features
Metronome is built in. Matching bench is included and solid. I appreciated that the pedals are built in, the voices are good and the music stand is nice to have. I wish the music stand had a bit more of a groove or was set back father(my books have a tendency to slide down), but it looks nice. The control keys are minimal, but that's what I was looking for. It might also be nice if the features were marked along the keys, but the aim is to have everything look as much as possible like a real piano, so I don't mind overall. I also like the volume control.

Ease of Use
It takes a little while to figure out how to adjust the metronome or change voices, but just keep the "cheat sheet" at hand and it's pretty easy.

Quality
Seems very well built, definitely looks nice and more like a piece of furniture than the keyboard I was originally considering. Easy read more enough for two people to lift and move (not too heavy) and was easy to assemble. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Value
Good value for the money -- looks like a nice piece of furniture, doesn't have all the features of the next step up but more than adequate for a regular piano player who is looking for a good upright without the weight and maintenance/tuning requirements. I feel it is priced well.

The Wow Factor
Sleek lines, good color, has a key cover, keys don't look cheap, keyboard is designed such that it's easy to rest photoframes/knick knacks on it (as with a regular upright), and included matching bench is attractive also. I think it looks great.
