    The P85 has the GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) action, which isn't Yamaha's best action. Their best action available in a portable "slab" style instrument is "GH" (Graded Hammer), which is available in the P-155, CP33, CP300, and the new CP50, and I think some other less piano-centric keyboards. (the new CP1 and CP5 have non-graded actions which aren't quite as dedicated to mimicking a grand piano as the GH action - I understand it's more of a good compromise for a variety of different sounds)

    Just today I compared the GHS action to the new Casio action (available in the PX-130, 330, 730, 830 etc) and I preferred the Casio. These Casios have a good bang-for-your-buck. If you want a traditional MIDI connection (as opposed to USB MIDI) you have to be careful because I think most of them only have USB. I know that the PX-330 definitely has traditional MIDI ports though, and this model is marketed as something of a MIDI controller keyboard as well.

    The P-85 gives musicians the dynamic, high-quality sound and natural piano touch response they expect from Yamaha, along with a high quality built.
