Default Keyboard

Hey guys, I would like to get a keyboard, but I would like it to sound as close to a classic piano sound as possible, does anyone have any recommendations for a certain type of keyboard, I also have a very low budget.

If you want it to sound as close to a classic piano as possible, I have a feeling you'd be going over your budget.
The one I have at home is... okay i don't remember who made mine, but it was cheap.
And it doesn't sound real at all.

It's a Casio CDP-100... and unfortunately when I was shopping for digital pianos I learnt that that is how much you need to spend if you want it sounding and feeling as close to a real piano as possible. Mine was even one of the cheaper ones! Otherwise, anything cheaper would be a plain keyboard (not digital piano) which would possibly not have weighted keys, full length or a sustain pedal.
