All insights will be appreciated!

We are purchasing one of the following this week for our 12 year old daughter. She has been taking lessons on an acoustic piano for one year and using a very elementary keyboard. She has practiced faithfully and has earned a better instrument.

We are leaning towards the CLP.

Each instrument is priced at $800.

Used Yamaha CLP- 130 from original owner manufactured in 2003

OR

Used Yamaha YDP 323 from original owner manufactured in 2005

An easy one; the CLP.(assuming they're both in good shape)

The CLP has a better sample set, more power, 2 track recorder, and a nicer cabinet. They both have the same action.
