Great for the priceThis is a great piece of equipment and a very decent substitute for real piano - honestly, unless you absolutely need a real piano (classical music for instance), I'd rather go with this keyboard. It is lightweight, sturdy and has a good sound. It is not as good as kurzweil or a nord, but at $600, I do not think it gets any better than that.

Excellent keyboardI am delighted with the Yamaha P-105. Since I am taking piano lessons on a Yamaha grand piano, it gives me an opportunity to compare the sound and touch, which are very similar. I play on my Yamaha keyboard everyday. I highly recommended it. The quality of the sound and touch far exceeds the reasonable price. Sweetwater delivered the piano quickly and in perfect condition, ready to play. Good packaging. Excellent service.

Great Piano!the design is simple and elegant. It feels and look like a real piano, with weighted keys and a beautiful sound. you can use it as a midi controller and it is plug-and-play with most of the softwares, like Garageband. there are not a lot of functions, just the essential, that makes it easy to use.

Great choiceIce an upright grand. I was worried the sound and/or feel would not be as good. Not to worry - it is perfect for him. Piano teacher came over and loved it as well. They both say it has made a big improvement in his playing in a matter of a couple of weeks - maybe because he really enjoys playing it. Sound and feel are excellent.

Yamaha P105-35 Casio 150?I've been looking for a substitute for my StudioLogic VMK88 board which while 88 keys, light, and has Hammond type faders for use with N.I.'s B4, has rubbish action. My Mainstage piano sounds are also not 100%. I have a Yamaha U1 acoustic at home so have been spoiled.
Looking through the reviews I saw a nice comparison of Y-P-105 and C-150. The reviewer preferred the Casio so off to the shops to compare.
Result - I prefer the P35 for it's authentic acoustic piano touch and the P-105 for it's slightly better sound. I don't need the other bells and whistles just;
2. Good piano touch.
3.Good piano sound.
The Yam P105 and Casio 150 also have NO MIDI outs, only USB. This is a black mark against them for me, but might not matter to other people.
So the Yam P35 gets my vote and I save 200 odd $.

easy choiceCAME DOWN TO CASIO 150 OR YAMAHA P105. easy decision after playing them side by side. The sound engine was so much better on the yamaha, my decision was easy. A very simple great sounding piano. MY ONLY disappointment was to see it was made in china, but i believe casio is too as are most guitars. Service at sweetwater was excellent, the 30 day return policy made the difference for me, but its a keeper for me. PEACE
