The functions are intuitive and basic, and it has a realistic acoustic piano feel. It has grand piano, strings, organ and electric piano sounds and you can experiment with the voices and come up with different sounds. The dual mode and built-in reverb adds depth to the tones. You can plug in headphones and practice until the wee hours in the morning without irking family and neighbors.

The recording feature is allows beginners to record and listen to their music in order to improve on their skills.

Cons - Great Digital Piano for Beginners, But Not Professionals

The music stand is too short and steep and the music sheet has the tendency to slide off. For an advanced pianist, the Yamaha YDP141 has very few features and will prove to be too limiting in the long run. Though there is MIDI connectivity, a USB computer connection is more apt. The 64-note polyphony is not really that great.

However, for entry-level piano students the Yamaha YDP-141 digital piano will do. Priced at just over $1,000 for the US, and over 500 for the UK market, this instrument is a great buy and offers a lot of value for the money.
