I can't decide which instrument would be best for me. I am deciding between a Yamaha YDP-223(digital piano) and a Yamaha P120 (stage piano/keyboard). They both have very similar sound features and options, although the YDP-223 comes with 3 pedals, while the P120 only comes with the sustain pedal. The YDP-223 plays a little better and has better built-in speakers, but there is not a huge difference in the feel of the graded hammer action keys. Ultimately, my dilemma lies in the fact that I am a college student in an on-campus apartment. I will be living there for 1-2 years and then moving on to one or more jobs in the next few years after that. The P-120 would be much easier to move, but I think I would be happier once I settle somewhere with the YPD-233 until I could afford a nice acoustic piano. Any advice?

That last time I wrote YDP-233. I meant YDP-223. Sorry.

I went with the portable choice when I decided. Probably best for you too since you are going to be moving around a bit.

I ended up buying a cheap portable Casio WK-3000 (which I am very happy with for the $), and a Roland A-37 MIDI Keyboard Controller to hook up to my digi 002 DAW setup (computer based recording studio). The Roland has pretty good action. The casio . . . .not so much.

I have a student who ended up getting a digital piano, but I think they can be limiting (at least the ones I've seen) compared to a keyboard in the same price range. I don't care that much about the action of the keys as I play trumpet as my primary instrument. Our choral director where I teach likes the action on the digital pianos better for the $$$


GOOOOOOROOOOOO

These models always have this issue. People always get confused in these two piano models. They are both very good, and outstanding in their performance. The rush-essay also mentioned them among the best. I will recommend you to go for the cheaper one, or the secure one. Thanks a lot for sharing such information with others.
