Just like a "real" piano

Pros:Real piano sound and feel, lightweight and portable yet sturdy in construction.

Cons:Limited recording ability (1 song/session), no USB port or external SD card slot

The Bottom Line: Perfect for those who want a real piano feel and sound but don't want or need all those built-in accompaniment "magic organ" type sounds.


Sold my old wooden spinet when I moved and missed being able to play.  So today I went looking for something small that would fit into my city apartment but still sound and feel like a real piano, and have all 88 keys.  I probably played 30 digital pianos all over Manhattan today until I found the P95.  All I can say is wow. It feels and plays just like my old piano - only better since it requires no tuning and doesn't weigh a ton. So many electronic pianos have a spongy feel or even worse - no feel at all like those old electric air organs.  The sound is beautiful, clear, loud (or soft) as the keys respond to the intensity you use when you play just like a hammer-struck string piano.  The keys don't wobble sideways, and they bounce back just like a regular piano - not too fast, but not too slow. Plus, it connects to my Mac and Garage Band through the MIDI connectors, has 2 headphone jacks so I can play all I want and my neighbors won't be disturbed.  It has the ability to blend other voices into the piano as well such as strings, choir, pipe organ, jazz organ, etc as well as the ability to play in those voices alone. It came with a built-in music holder as well as a portable sustain pedal both of which I found had to be purchased separately on some of the others I played today.  I am going tomorrow to buy the matching stand and 3-pedal board so that it will be a complete stand-alone piano.
***UPDATE***I bought the stand and pedal assembly ($99 for the stand, and $75 for the pedal assembly) and I must say, I am totally impressed in the look, stability, and functionality of the piano.  The piano itself is great (as per my above review) and decently portable for a full-size keyboard, but combined with the relatively inexpensive permanent mounted stand and pedal assembly and you have a sleek, modern looking real piano at just the right height, and extremely stable.  Plus, it's so sleek and modern looking in my condo loft that it fits right into my modern decor as a piece of very cool looking furniture.  With the stand and pedal assembly you get all 3 piano pedal functionalities in a piano that truly sounds and plays as good as a concert grand.  I couldn't be more impressed.  Don't let the salesman at Best Buy tell you there isn't a real permanent stand for it (like they told me). Search for the L85 stand and LP5 pedal assemblies and put it all together in 15 minutes for the true piano experience.
