For years I used a Steinway soundfont that was $5 on the internets. Worked well, sounded well.

Lately I use the Old Lady Gigasample in LinuxSampler for recording purposes.

Live I use a very simple piano soundfont lifted from a PC52 or some such General Midi soundfont, because it is lightweight and doesn't use up too much CPU on my EEE, and also because it cuts through the mix with almost headache-inducing force.
