    the word 'casio' conjures

    does anyone else here think of music keyboards first when you hear the word 'casio'? it's still the first association i make.

    Not for me - I first encountered Casio as calculators and watches at school. Some of those made noises, but they were never going to be instruments

    Watches first, calculators next then keyboards as a distant afterthought. In fact I got one of my sons a large Casio keyboard for Christmas one year and joked when he opened it that I thought it was going to be a GIGANTIC watch

    Yes - old, cheesy 1980's home keyboards. I'm in the same boat, I just can't shake that association.

    Calculators first, fx-XX anyone? (number here, XX)

    Watches second.

    And I would've forgotten about keyboards if some of you WIS didn't bring it up. This forum is the only reason I remembered that casio made keyboards.

    For me, calculators then watches as a close second. Then keyboards.

    There was a time while G-Shocks were below my personal Swiss automatic radar, that I had certainly heard of G-Shocks, but didn't even know they were made by Casio!

    The word "Casio" makes me think of the 1980s.

    Same here. I have to say after owning a few watches now, it means badass! Unfortunately telling someone you're wearing a Casio gets odd looks that you're proud of it.
