ACTION:

Roland Fp10/30, (not for everyone)

realistic, heavy, trills are more difficult, 321 on single note takes more skill, You gotta LIFT BRO..

- Because of the weight, it is also more difficult to play dynamically. <especially if you're a beginner>


Korg B2/ yamaha p45/ p71/ p125, kawai es110, Action are much much lighter, relative to a real piano and Fp10/30, they're almost toy-like.

Toy-like, but NOT necessarily a bad thing. It's easier to manage the dynamics (loud vs soft sounds). It's not fatiguing to play. You don't need to be strong.

Kawai es110's standout is its dynamics seem more tightly matched to the action, feels very under-control.

SOUND:

Yamaha and Kawai both have their Iconic piano sound. The speakers are small though, so it doesn't give you that deep vibration at the low end, still sounds very good.

Roland Fp10/30, it sounds fine, less bright a piano than kawai/yamaha, the headphone output doesn't play well with all amps, because of impedance mismatch, it does not have a line out.

Korg, it sounds ok, brighter than the Roland, nothing fancy, it does feel a little bit thin compared to the others, BUHHH some people like this, because it's less muddy. The Roland's sound engine does all this fancy sympathetic vibration stuff, yea it's more realistic, but depending on the music you're playing, you might not like that.


Durability:

P45/71/125 has yamaha's GHS action, this is by far the least durable design. I've spoken with many repair shops and they all mentioned that this action is simply not designed to last. It was designed to be quick to assemble and cheap to produce.

ES110's action is a new stripped down version of their RH3, we don't know h ow durable it will be in the long run.

B2 is also fairly new, we know B1 had lots of problems with build-quality, BUhhhh Korg said they improved upon it, but of course they'd say that, The Korg B2 NH-action design is VERY similar to Yamaha's GHS, so again, by design not very durable.. <also has a very short warranty>

Roland FP10/30, this PHA-4 action is a redesign of their Ivory-G, has been out for several years now, seems durable enough. NOT unbreakable, requires RELUBE depending on usage lvl.

They also say the FP10 is suppose to be identical to FP30 action, BUT, I haven't seen any tear down videos of the FP10 , so did they cut cost some where, or change materials, who knows.

standard one year warranty i think. You can possible get an additional year by registering your piano on their site (don't quote me)

If you register your Korg keyboard, keyboard rack module or digital piano online within 90 days of purchase, Korg will extend your Korg manufacturer's warranty for an extra year for free if purchased from a Korg authorized dealer. A copy of the registration confirmation email and a legible copy of the product's sales receipt from the authorized dealer are both required for extended warranty service. To register your Korg product, please click http://i.korg.com/Register

Similar to p45 in terms of piano category (both are sub $500). The key action depends on your taste.

Roland for key action and app. Roland has the heaviest and arguably the better key action among p45 and b2

I don't know why white doesn't go on sale as often. As for how long it'll last, my view is simple: buy first, then think...
