    I am looking for something for my young kids to play on as well as for
    me to try to learn piano.
    I was thinking that these would be the minimum criteria

    -full sized, touch-sensitive keys, preferring 76 keys over 61, if
    -general MIDI
    -USB connection to a Mac or a PC
    -very good sound quality
    -a good number of built in voices/instruments, tempos, ...
    -good user interface, decent LCD, readable, ...

    If I had my choice, I would choose 76 keys over 61.

    So far, I am considering (in no particular order):
    Yamaha YPT-400AD (how is it different from the 400MS?)
    Yamaha YPT-400MS
    Yamaha YPT-310 (what does it have over the 300?)
    Yamaha YPT-300
    Yamaha YPG-235
    Yamaha DGX-205AD
    Yamaha PSR-E403
    Yamaha YPT310AD

    My grand father learned piano at 72 - so you can definitely get started with doing it now!
