Grain in video is hard to tell, since it could be in the source such as from filmed sources in low light scenes.
The Panasonic may be better at showing such a film source correctly as it actually is and other displays may filter and hide it.
Oddly enough, it seems to have gone down after a software update... Or maybe I'm just going nuts.
Another issue I'm seeing is the Comcast guide and info menus look terrible. They never looked spectacular, but now it all looks grainy. Maybe you're right, and the Panasonic shows the true colors of what is being shown, or again, maybe i bought a tv too large for the room...
But I guess I have a few weeks to play around, and watch. The past 3 TVs I've had have all been samsungs, so I could just be used to how they handle content, but I couldn't ignore all the stellar reviews the panasonics have had, nor could I ignore all of the issues people have been mentioning with this current crop of Samsungs.
I'll keep on viewing, and if I don't grow to like it, I guess I'll return it and start back at square one...
