480i vs 720p vs 1080i vs 1080p SEE the DIFFERENCE
 

 
Just pulled this off of Westinghouse's site. Very cool way to "see" the difference in different HD resolutions.

That sh*t is straight up bullsh*t. Of course they are gonna tell you to get a 1080p tv. It even asks you if you have one at the end. I've personally viewed a 1080p tv next to both 720p and 1080i just today and I could see a difference, but only sometimes. What I would like to see online is a non bias site throw up some good quality pictures of each. Wanna bet that when the next format comes out that that same 1080p picture get's a bit more blurry?

yeah there is no way that 1080p is that much clearer than 720p

it can be quantified numerically, actually.

1080: 1920 x1080 = 2073600
720: 1280 x 720 = 921600
480: 852 x 480 = 408960

As you can see, 720p is roughly 2.25 times the pixel count of 480p, whereas 1080p is roughly 2.25 times the pixel count of 720p. That means that you're looking at effectively the same jump in resolution from 720p ->1080p as you are from 480p -> 720p. That's a HUGE leap in terms of the amount of detail a program has to render. A good example would be take a game running on your PC, set the resolution to 1280x720 and record a demo with a fps counter running, then run the same demo back at 1920x1080 and look at the fps. I guarantee you will see a huge drop in performance.

So while Westinghouse made it seem a little dramatic in a sense it is true.

go in a store and look at 720p broadcast and then 1080p. on the real 1080 is crazy. theres no motion bluring on the sets that you see on the 720 sets. there is a diffrence. the 1080 picture is beautiful.

Justin, chances are you couldn't see the difference because it wasn't a 1080p source. If you watch a 720p source in 1080p (ie watching any HDTV broadcast), you aren't seeing the 1080p difference. You need a 1080p source (BR-D or HD-DVD) to see it. Then watch that 1080p source in 720p. You'll see it.

I'm not saying that the difference doesn't exist. It has to to even have people to care. But the difference that that site shows I think is overdramatic to say the least don't you? I mean come on, they are basically showing that everything below 1080p is garbage. Well, of course they would because look at the cost of a 1080p set. I won't be even looking at one of those for years because honestly, I need a huge tv. And for me to get one close to my size would be 3 times the amount I paid for mine. Just not really worth it to me.

Its a DVI connection comes on most computer monitors the quality is suppose to be bout the same as HDMI but it does not support sound through that connection you have to get other cables for the sound

i don't understand, shouldn't it be better that you keep the res. at it's native resolution so there's no unneeded scaling going on?
