I like Yamaha's "GH" key action.

But I doubt one is really better. More a matter of which you happen to like the most.

One thing about auto accompaniments is that you have to like the styles. The specs will just say "100 styles" but if they are all 80's dance styles you might not be happy. You have to try them and listen

Try out the sounds and accomp:s.
P-85 cheap plastic imitation; not because of sound, but weight.

If the accompaniments are important to you, it is good to note that the Casio has two variations for each style, whereas the Yamaha has four.

There are a lot of 3rd party styles and great 3rd party support (forums) available with the CVP.

Good luck with your decision.
