So here's a quick introduction: I started playing trumpet in school when I was in 5th grade, moved on to baritone/euphonium in 7th grade, taught myself acoustic guitar in 8th grade, and now I'm starting to learn piano (9th grade). Yeah, it's pretty late, but eh, who cares.
Anyway, I got a digital piano for Christmas (yesterday). We decided that a digital piano would be suitable for now, since we don't know for sure how casually I'll be playing, but at the same time purchasing a piano with good sound quality. I think we did pretty well in that area:
I know many people have said the polyphony isn't that great, and the piano doesn't really have that many "flashy buttons," but again, these weren't part of my main concern - sound quality and preparation for potential upgrade to an acoustic piano.
I've been playing on it all of yesterday, and I've really enjoyed it. I was able to play a few simple tunes like "Silent Night" and "Heart and Soul" since I fortunately had the experience of reading music from my other instruments, and since I had somewhat "prepared" for the piano with some studying of piano key notes.
Onto my question: The piano does have Casio's "Scaled Hammer Action," making the lower octave notes weightier than than higher ones. But I'm not sure if the keys in general are as "hard" to play as an acoustic piano would be. Would it be difficult if I were to upgrade to a regular piano? If I stayed with this one, how far off would the difference be? Lastly, is there a way to actually see how "weighted" these digital piano's keys are compared to a regular one other than physically testing them?
