All user reviews of 4/5 for the Yamaha P-80
yoTrakkz's review"a fine choice"
If you’re familiar with the general make up found on electric pianos, you’ll definitely feel at home here. Nothing about the P80 is difficult to understand, as everything is pretty straight forward. Choosing the different sounds is as easy as hitting a button, as is the same with the built in reverb and other effects, which include chorus, a phaser, tremolo, and delay. You can also change the sensitively on the touch and transpose. I haven’t had a need to use the demo or the built in recording features, but certainly they are nice to have there just in case. The overall feel of the P80 is definitely realistic and is about as close as you’ll find to a real piano. A manual won’t be necessary to use most of the features, but if you’re looking to learn it inside and out, you might as well have it handy.
As I stated earlier, the grand piano sounds are definitely the most realistic sounding tones on the Yamaha P80, but I can’t complain too much about the way the other sounds come across. Some of them are a bit cheesy sounding, as is the case with the electric piano sounds, but others are pretty realistic like the harpsichord. The effects are nice to have, but I haven’t really used them other than the chorus. While the effects do sound pretty good, you don’t have any parameters for them, so what you hear is what you get…
The Yamaha P80 is a very solid electric piano. While you would think that this would be a bit cheap, I guess the real feel and body of the piano make it a bit more expensive. The price still isn’t too bad when you consider what the price of a real piano costs, but at the same time you could put together a better sounding collection of sounds on your computer with a MIDI controller for the price of the P80. Still, if you’re interested in a portable electric keyboard with a very good feel and sound, the P80 is fine choice.

abbesses75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good piano, but fragile"
The touch is nice but it is fragile balances that make possible the feeling of an acoustic piano keys often break. the crack is invisible from the outside, but the result is that the button does not go back over and must be replaced. Over time, many of them fall behind. Tip: if you repair, you should also replace the keys are a bit "limited" is the opening of the apparatus which is expensive in manpower in the repair ... absorb as much!
Good piano sounds. for his "Hammond organ": the possibility of starting the Leslie with the "change" ... original. Other sounds are ultra classic, unoriginal.
Too bad there anyway not a small integrated amplifier ... however small, is still useful to have a minimum return in certain conditions a little difficult scene.
I was super satisfied how, especially convenient for transportation. But I discovered the P140/P155 with just a touch gen-ni-al.

vince8430's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
12 sounds. (See above for more details).
Simple and easy.
Possibility to superimpose two sounds.
Manuel trs clear.
I'll lay some rave reviews, although it is still a good piano trs numrique in prcisant Difference from a certain sound (many sellers say immediately: " it's the same feel as an acoustic and its the same ").
Dplaise not certain, even when the touch is not the same as that of an acoustic piano. It is a touch heavy, diffrentiel between bass and treble, but the relchement key is not identical to that of an acoustic piano (the CHARACTERISTICS of depression of the key are they, closer to an acoustic piano). It is clear that the diffrence when playing fast squence trs has not Ragit not the same Manir a acoustic piano. (Eyes closed, ind pendently Material-surface touch and sound, I will make the diffrence between 10 out of 10 any acoustic piano and a piano numrique).
Sound: The sounds do not contain all the harmonics and acoustics that this effect is more acute or particulirement the sound loses a lot faster than a harmonic richness of his sound. In addition, more serious than a percussive acoustic piano.
Trs numrique good piano. One of the best on the market. Good qualitprix.
but this is the equivalent of an acoustic piano, both in terms of touch and sound.
