I really need FAST help deciding which synthesizer to buy!

Yamaha PSR-E423 vs. Yamaha S03?

Which one of them do you think is better for me, if you don't look at the prices.

I would love one that has a sound VERY close to a REAL grand piano sound, that's what I expect the most out of it! Basically I want it to sound very much like the real piano. And would also be good if the speakers sound was nice and also some other good sounds and non-toyish keys.. ALSO WOULD BE GOOD IF THE KEYS ARE THE SAME WIDTH AS THE REAL PIANO. (26,5 mm I think? not sure)

As a Canadian in Ontario, the best electric piano, organ and synthesizer products I've seen,
were either Roland or Korg. Roland is the much larger company.
If you ever have the opportunity to buy the small, two octave Korg synthesizers,
or their Hammond B-2 electronic clone, buy them. They are still used and are rare collectibles.
The Korg "wave station"? Don't wave goodbye to that one.

I spent over $1,500 for three, small, half-rack microdigital Roland Boss effects, in the late eighties,
just to get echo as on all the time sweetener, echo for effects, and stereo panning.
That's still money well spent, and effects still exciting to explore. Acoustic reality? Where's yours?

Please purchase quality, studio headphones for use with any electric piano.
Not only will it increase your opportunities to play at will without disturbing others,
you'll also be hearing in the same stereo manner that modern recording studios use.
You not only are what you eat, you are what you see and hear. Make it real.

If the price doesn't matter I would look for the Roland V-Piano. It produces probably the most realistic Piano-sound and has of course a full piano-keyboard.

Is that the Roland V-Piano with the extra keys, arch-top accessory?
So you can use the v-shaped keyboard with the archtop, making it look like a heart?
I can see why hearscore gets into it.
Happy Valentines day, with archtop synth sounds, traditional piano on the right V slant,
and bass heavy tones on the left.
