I am in the market for a digital piano I'm going to go look at a used Yamaha CLP120. I am also very inexperienced and unknowledgeable. My daughter has been taking piano lessons for 3 years and we've been borrowing a piano, the owners have just sold it (it was a Steinway). Are there any suggestions on some important things I look for and try?

If your daughter has been playing for 3 years on a Steinway, she is going to be sorely disappointed with a digital piano. The action of a digital piano is nothing like that of an acoustic piano, however close the emulation is attempted. I own a Yamaha Grantouch, which is considered the closest to an acoustic piano, yet I find my ability to play properly fairly limited. Piano playing is not simply about pressing the correct keys; and I can guarantee that your daughter's technique will suffer if she switches to a digital piano for practice.

Please do her a huge favour and consider a used upright acoustic piano instead. If you ask about this in the Piano Forum, I am sure you will get lots of helpful responses on how to go about accquiring a good used acoustic.
