I upgraded to a 1080p TV after all these years and I can honestly say: unless you sit very close, you could barely tell the difference. You'd really have to try. So why does SW consider this a contentious issue? Wouldn't it be better to keep 720p and just focus on high frame rate? Doesn't seem like most people would really care.

You had a 720p TV?

Because 1080p is always clearer by the sheer fact of numbers, Whether you notice a difference or not is irrelevant

next thing up from the peasant gallery: 30fps to 60fps has no difference, the human eye only sees 24!

It's barely noticeable unless you have functional eyes. :)

Congrats on the new TV, btw. :)

Ugh... I have 100% functional eyes they work great. And I can tell you 1080p is leagues better then 720p and 1440p even better then 1080p. I wonder how many people who make these threads have to wear glasses?

This isn't thread worthy discussion.
