General What is your overall opinion of this product? This is the perfect piano for my teaching studio. I will also be gigging with it. It has a fantastic action and sound. I am going to be recommending it for all my students. It is a far better choice for most families than a "real" piano, for many reasons, including it has a better action than any spinet, console, or upright I've ever played, and it won't ever go out of tune. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? This is the first electronic piano I've ever played that I consider to be a musical instrument, rather than a toy. It is truly expressive. It will work well for any genre of music that uses a grand piano sound. Classical, rock, pop, whatever. The build quality seems excellent. Rugged, solid, typical Yamaha quality. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? Perfect for any level of player. If you can play a piano, you can play this. The advanced features are not easy to access, nor are they user friendly, but who cares? Just leave it on the piano setting and play it. Unlike the P-95, it has a line out (YEAH!!!) with a mono output so it can be gigged. It's a bit on the heavy side for my aging back, but there's no way to build that quality weighted action into a 25 lb keyboard. Besides, why am I complaining? 41 lbs beats the heck out of my old Yamaha CP-70b that I used to gig with back in the day that weighed 300 lbs. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? My favorite features are the only ones I really care about for my students: 1. a quality grand piano action, 2. a quality grand piano sound, 3. 88 keys. I also like the adjustable touch response, adjustable reverb, and effects. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? I had this thing sitting in my living room last weekend right next to my Knabe grand, and I found myself preferring to play the P-155 over the grand. It is so realistic! The sound from those tiny built in speakers is really surprising. I love the 4 level samples, the sound of other strings resonating when the pedal is pressed, and the sound of the felt hitting the string when a key is released. Both piano samples are awesome. Piano 1 is a full rich 9' concert grand. Piano 2 is perfect for rock, with a Billy Joel/Elton John type sound. I'm not bowled over by the Rhodes sound; it's OK but I wish it had four level sampling like the grand, instead of 2 levels. The DX7 electric piano sound is also OK. The organ, vibes, harpsichord, clavichord, and guitar are a waste. The strings are OK but I wish it were easier to adjust the balance between the strings and the piano when playing both at the same time. But these are minor complaints. The piano sounds are lovely. Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? The action on this piano is the best of any electronic instrument I have ever laid hands on. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? This piano is a bargain. It sounds and feels as good as a top of the line $6,000 Clavinova. OK, so it's not a beautiful piece of living room furniture (although it does look quite nice), and it doesn't have all the bells and whistles and gimmicks and fancy displays and 1000 useless sounds. But if you are after a quality piano sound and feel, the P-155 is as good as it gets, for a surprisingly low price. I would have expected to pay twice the price I paid for an instrument this good.
Nice Piano!!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? A worthy companion to my P-250. At half the weight, carting to gigs is much easier and sounds almost as good as my big rig! Speakers are well designed in that they fire to the rear as well as up. Helpful for vocal rehearsals. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Typical Yamaha quality. Excellent! Played Yamahas my whole life. Had a Yamaha C-3 grand and while neither the P-250 or the P-155 can replace a good acoustics sound and feel, it's more than adequate for purposes. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? Super easy to use. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? Sound quality definitely beats the Korgs and Casios. Only the better Rolands can compete but they're more expensive. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I'd say the price is competitive. No bells and whistles on this one. Just good sounds that are easy to access. Just what I wanted.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The sound board is solid wood with a perfect finish. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I took a risk getting the P155 with on-board speakers. It turns out it is one of the best features I can find. They are 100% silent even at full power, no buzz or hiss. They sound exactly the same as a pair of high end AKG headphones. I absolutely love the speakers, they replace a set of Samson's and M-Audio's. Besides that the speed to get playing is a real blessing, just like a real piano sitting there. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? It is ultra easy to use. I use it 5 times a day when the urge strikes. It takes just 1 second to sit down and start to play and hear the sounds, no monitors to turn on or fumble for the right buttons to push. Sound How is the tone? It sounds much better than the P80 I used to have, but it could be from the built in speakers, a better match. Value Was this item an overall good value? It was a good discount, what I would have paid max.
