Most yamahas are crap, go for the roland Fp-2 model, trust me....i have the fp5 model its the same thing but fp2 is better. Its the most realistic thing youll come across as far as key touch and sound. Its light and portable and will withstand many years of fury...mine has. I belive its only 1,299, but as always go to your local music store and test every piano you can before buying one.

The only crap Yamahas I've played are some of their baby grands.

Yamahas have brilliant touch, uber realistic and heavy. Roland are good, but I prefer Yamaha (especially in terms of their sampling)

In my experience, the only worthwhile Yamaha digitals are the true upper-end models, which can get up to $7,000 or more. Might as well get a real piano for that much. I spent many years playing a Roland digital, which you could probably find now for closer to $2,000 or so, and it sufficed even if it wasn't brilliant. Look into the KR series, or...let me think...there's a good alternative for even less money but I'm not sure on the name: RD-600, perhaps? Well, check it out.
