Went back to the store today
I went back to the first store today and all the HDTV are connected via Component (Y, Pb, R) signal and an amplifier. Both TV are 720p only. The Panasonic is a TC-P50C1 and the Samsung is a PN50B430. I can definitely see more detail on the Samsung than on the Panasonic.
In fact, with the Milky Way Test, all the Panasonic (small or big) on the wall are not able to show the very little stars or stardust. All the Samsung were able to. This is having nothing to do with color adjustment or contrast. Leafs in trees or little waves on a lake are more sharp on the Samsung than on the Panasonic.
I can't find the number of bits for the Panasonic.
