Can someone give me a quick dump on the various offerings for auto-play pianos -- including Disklavier, PianoDisc, Pianomation, Pianocorder. Are they worth the investment? Is this a cop out for "real" playing? How is the sound?

I love piano but never learned how to play. My kids are taking lessons, are doing quite well, and seem to enjoy it, so I'm about to invest in something better than the cheap Casio digital piano we currently have.
I'd like to get a setup that enables the kids to continue practicing on a good instrument while I can also enjoy classics from one of the systems mentioned above, a la auto-play. I'm in the early stages of my homework so any advice/experience with these systems is helpful. I know they are pricey -- but it seems like a good investment for me at this stage of the game.
