      This keyboard makes a for a great midi controller if you are looking for an 88 key weighted hammer action keyboard from a top manufacturer. First off, it is simple. There are a total of four buttons and a volume slider. Used only as a midi controller you can hardly tell it's a functioning digital piano as well. What is just perfect though and ultimately sold me is the flat surface on top. Finally, somewhere to but my mouse and keyboard! In designing my work station, my biggest struggle as been where to put these peripherals. A keyboard shelf sticks out too far and makes you scoot back to use it. With this, you can sit in the perfect position to play the keyboard while having the computer keyboard right at your fingertips! I cannot stress enough how important this was. The key feel is "ok". It's a little bit mushy, but very fairly dynamic. You cannot get anything better for the price unless you buy an off brand. They actually use this same keybed in some of their more expensive digital pianos.It's cool to be able to instantly use it as a digital piano too. It actually sounds pretty good. The only keyboard in this price range that I could see being as good for midi is the CME Series. Those also have room for a keyboard and mouse but the position is not quite as good. The action feels better on the CME and it has a million knobs you can use as presets - but for me that is a con because it makes things more complicated and does not let me put my computer keyboard directly in front of me. The only thing missing in the pitch bend wheel. Personally I never use it but if want it you can get a cheap midi controller and still come out ahead.

      this keyboard is a lighter, slightly smaller and $150 cheaper than the p-60. It's made in China, and the lack of quality shows. The action is slightly heavier than p-60, and way noisier. Noisy when you hit the key, double noise on the rebound. The sound on the main piano sound is good, piano number two is mono, and thus worthless. The rest of the sounds are the same as thep-p60. The bottom line, the p-60 is overall a much better machine, the p-70 a piss poor replacement. The mixing of the bass and treble is really poor, leading to real cold,sterile sound, maybe good for classical music but deadly for pop. Absoulutely no warmth at all to the sound. But it is cheap, and a decent practice board for the not too discriminating. But really, comparing the p-60 (japan made) board to the p-70 (chinese made) board, the difference in the quality is very palpable....

      P-70 review from a Pro

      By Ian lessor

      from albuquerque

      Not bad for something not too expensive. But, the action noise is unbearable. It is so loud that while playing at normal volume with the headphones on, my neighbors can year the clunking sound when standing outside my front door!! Horrible action noise. It can even be heard by the audience while I'm playing a gig. No 1/4" outs, good overal sound though. action is not good.

      Quality Instrument

      By Chemalurgy

      from Travel extensively

      I was a professional pianist and teacher and this is an instrument that I would recommend to anyone. If you are looking for a cheap synthesizer that creates all of the sounds for you, then this isn't for you, but if you seriously love music and want a quality keyboard, then buy this one.

      Great for the price

      By Jerbo

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      I?ve been gigging with a HEAVY Roland XV-88 with its HEAVY case for many years. I love the action and sounds but it's heavy; I dealt with it. Then I hurt my back. Badly. I decided to axe the XV and play an unweighted board. I missed that weighted key action! I visited my local music store and begged, "Show me your lightest, cheapest (but good-quality) weighted-key board". "Oh, that's easy. The P-70. It's right here." I put my hands on it for a second, played thru the onboard sounds, tried picking it up and... WOW THAT'S SO LIGHT! I bought it. For live gigging and practicing, it's great. I MIDI it into my Motif and use it as a controller and it works GREAT! Caution: There's no 1/4" audio out. There are two 1/8? headphone outs, though. My piano students like it, and internal speakers simplify setup. It comes with a music stand & sustain pedal. All in all, a super cool piano. Yes, the keys are loud, and it's a little Spartan... but it?s sub-$500. Well-made. The action?s heavy, but good.

      By gugachiu

      from Gardena, CA

      If you are a college student, like myself, and you are just looking for a solid 88 key, digital piano, and not a synthesizer, this is the board for you. I did a lot of research, and went into music stores to test each one, and this one was clearly the one that fit my price range and delivered quality. Pros: It's simple to operate, not too many buttons with useless features for those looking for piano sounds. It's one of the cheapest 88 hammer action keyed boards.Cons: I only have one thing against it, the lower octive does sound a bit "off". But honestly, it's barely noticeable.

      Don't Waste Your Money

      By Sneakz

      from Redding, CA

      Cheap plastic. Horrible sandpaper-like finish. Clunky, noisy keys. No 1/4" outs. Low quality sound, with very weak speakers. Don't throw your money away on this cheapo piano like I did. Wish I would have just saved more money and bought a Roland.

      Yamaha P70 from a Classical Pianist POV

      By Daniel-Z.4Ha

      from Santa Cruz, CA

      The piano voices sound nice around the middle octaves but the lowest octave leaves something to be desired - playing single keys is fine but if you play any chords on the last octave, there seem to be some sort of dissonance between the overtones that makes the chord sound muddy and a bit off. The top end is slightly shriller than I?m used to. However, in typical classical pieces where very top and bottom octaves are rarely reached, the P70 isn?t bad at all.I can reach the limitations of 32 note polyphony by playing extended runs with sustain on? but only if I try - I?ve yet to run into notes cutting off in actual pieces.Another thing that I was worried about was the key action - overall, it?s not that bad. I?ve seen pianos with far worse action and after a week of playing, I?m already used to the weights and responses.

      it was good, while it lasted

      By little mozart man

      from San Jose, CA

      I really liked this piano while it still worked well. About seven months after buying it, some of the wriring got messed up so now occationally, some of the keys don't work. This problem is really annoying because it really limits my practicing time because I'll have to stop, and wait for the certain keys to work again. All in all, good piano for a good price, but it might crash on you so, think about your other options.

      Cant beat the Price

      By BlackBeanAddict

      from hannibal, MO

      This thing is amazing I can't believe what it will do even though its not a full blown synthesizer. I am the type to want to do more piano voicing than anything anyway but the 10 voices on here are more than enough for me and my rag tag group of musicians. IT SOUNDS GREAT! And at the price you won't find a better deal!
