From the manufacturer
The P-45 is the lowest-cost, 88-note, weighted-keyboard digital piano that Yamaha offers. This digital piano has a basic set of features, ideal for the needs of the beginner piano student.
Authentic to the Touch
Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
Yamaha's Classic Sound Engine
AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.
Simple, Single-Button Operation
Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button. Hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.

**UPDATE** In the middle of lessons and recital season, our piano is currently being held captive by a local repair shop. Yamaha would neither accept a return or make a trade, nor would they send a loaner; taking the piano to our local repair shop was the only option. We are now in for the cost of the piano and the transport to the repair shop, out for the cost of lessons and have a child with a recital looming who cannot practice. The local shop has been disparaging about Yamaha products and customer service and has no date for return of the piano as they "wait for parts." I will be calling Yamaha again today to plea my case for a replacement or refund as I'm souring to the consumer treatment. They could have resolved this easily. If this had happened sooner, we could have just dealt with Amazon's amazing return policy. Instead, we are here.
Yamaha customer service is abysmal. I empathize with anyone who goes through what we did trying to get our piano repaired/replaced. Re: the above update, I called Yamaha that afternoon as promised. Again, I was met with a snotty attitude and ridiculous remarks. The Yamaha representative told me a) I never should order from Amazon as they would have dealt with this differently if I'd bought directly from them (I'm sure Amazon will be thrilled to hear this) and b) it's very common for consumer products to be sent out for repair before replacements. Fair enough. But the example he used was a car---if your car needs a repair it has to go into the mechanic. I would argue that most car companies offer a loaner when they are remiss. It's not called a courtesy car for nothing.
But in Yamaha's world, there is no courtesy and there is certainly no courtesy piano. The CS rep transferred me to the parts department to see if they could determine "if" the parts (of which I still have no clue what they were) have been ordered and if so, how long it will take to ship them for repair to my local store. I received a voicemail, left a message and as you can probably tell where this is going, never heard from them again.
I dropped it at this point. My sanity wasn't worth the constant huffing and puffing from Yamaha and I couldn't bear to argue anymore. 7 weeks after our piano stopped working, it returned home. Minus the cost of transport in a hired car x4 (we are in a major city and walk everywhere), minus our child's prepaid piano lessons (she made due on a janky old keyboard with missing keys in the interim---thank goodness we happened to have access to that, thanks friend) and minus time and effort dealing with a pretty crabby company.
Our piano works fine now. If I ever have to go through this again, I don't know how I will react. Honestly, I just don't get it. I don't need companies to bow to my every whim, but this is 2016, and money talks. And so do poor reviews. I will never recommend this product to anyone. In fact, I will likely never recommend ANY Yamaha products. It's kind of like that pretty girl/handsome guy that has such a bunk personality you quickly realize they aren't attractive at all. And you end up falling in love with the person who treats you right. Yamaha: treat your customers RIGHT.
Here are my main points:
1. I love the sound programs. It comes with two grand piano programs, electric piano, two pipe organ and two harpsichord programs. The first pipe organ and first harpsichord program are stunning. To hear how good they are, plug in a pair of headphones, or connect to a home audio system.
2. Very portable. There are a number of stands you can order that fit this piano. It is light. I wish it had a case.
3. The keyboard is responsive enough to play virtuoso music.
1. The keys are weighted but nothing like a real piano. Doesn't seem to have as much dynamic range.
2. The keys are noisey. They make noise. Turn off the sound and play, you can hear it. Some keys are more noisey than others. It may be the more freqently used keys are noisy. However, if you wear headphones (I have wireless ones) or turn the volume up, it doesn't seem to bother.
3. The speakers are not so hot. It has two very nice piano sound programs, they sound great with the headphones, they sound mediocre to bad on the piano's speakers.
4. The piano is of course, light. Very light. Don't get carried away and don't place anything like a cup of coffee or a metronome on the piano.
5. The headphone plug is in a VERY inconvenient location.
6. I am not sure how much longer this piano will last with hours of practice per day. It just doesn't seem robust enough to last 10 years with 2 hours of use per day, especially since the keys are getting noisey.
On the whole, I needed a keyboard, I am in an apartment, I have neighbors, I play classical and baroque music. This instrument satisfied my needs and allowed me to grow as I play Bach, Beethoven, etc. I am able to play my pieces on a real piano, though it takes a little getting used to, and I am able to practice organ and some harpsichord technique (holding notes for the correct values and precision release).
I suspect there are better pianos out there, but they are all more expensive. This one is doing the job for now. $500 wasn't too much to spend.

Edit: después de aproximadamente un año de uso, debo admitir que estoy más que satisfecho con el producto. Yamaha es una de las pocas marcas que producen pianos digitales de alta calidad, lo cual hace más fácil elegir este piano.
Solo recomendaría comprar un pedal normal porque el que trae es un poco incómodo.
