Blu-Ray Question

Just got a Blu-Ray which is used with a 42" 720 Plasma.The PQ as expected is outstanding. My question: How much improvement would I likely notice if I was using a 1080p tv? Thanks

Depends on how far your sit from the tv. In most cases, quite a bit.

Actually, with a 42-inch TV, not much at all unless you're sitting really close to it.

Little to none unless you are sitting to close.

It is not a matter of the technology, but your eyes.

Agreed. You likely won't see much difference (if any) with a 42" set.

Agreed. But there is also a noticeable difference if using it as a computer monitor.

Re: Blu-Ray Question

Improvement is an interesting word. What you would see is more resolution. Sometimes. Occasionally that would be an improvement when trying to read something on screen, a letter a character is holding for instance. But 720 is real nice, too.

Unlike some, I always recommend 1080. But that's for new purchases. If you have a nice HDTV, stick with it til you have a better reason for upgrading. Or you win the lottery.
