Hey there,
I've been looking around to buy a used DP and I came across this:
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/nvn/msg/2427712308.html
I emailed the person for details and he said that its the Yamaha YDP-113 and he originally bought it for $1500. He's offering it for $600 and I thought that was a great deal! I've read up on this piano and am getting mixed reviews. Some say that its good, some say its bad. My question is this: Should I purchase this piano for 600? I want a good, affordable DP that will last me.

Either that^ or,
a yamaha p-85 for $450.

I've been getting mixed reviews about the P-85 also. Many say its just a beginners DP, while others say its probably the best DP you can get for the price. What should I get?

I wouldn't depend on the reviews. Have you tried the piano yourself?

The YDP131 is a 2002 model. No half-pedaling. 32 polyphony. 1-level sampling. I wouldn't want it.
