Tried every keyboard/digital piano available in the local music stores. My main concern was of course the feel of the keys. There are many "hammer graded" pianos, but they all feel like midi controller keys to me. Also, others that may have had decent keys, but the sound was awful. I'd been looking at this Yamaha P-105 for a while and finally decided to impulse buy. This is by far the best feeling piano for the price. I tried pianos 5 times the price and this still beats them out. My daughter needed a piano for lessons (instead of buying an upright). This fits the bill perfectly. I'd buy this over and over again with no hesitation.
