[quote=zevia;2007907]This is only true for smaller screen. If you have 40" or lower, you might not see the difference between DivX vs “shrinked” DVD vs full dual layer DVD and probably vs HD images.
On larger screens, the picture quality difference WILL be more noticeable. Many references, including Amazon High-def 101 stated that significant difference on HD images displayed on 42" and larger screens compared to standard DVD.[/quote]
I completely agree. On my 50" SXRD screen I can definitely see a difference between upscaled and true HD content. However, for me, I only care on movies that can really benefit from HD. Comedies and romantic dramas really don’t benefit from being in HD, so, I see no reason to buy them in HD unless I get a really good deal. Action movies and epic films, however, benefit greatly from HD and I always try to buy those in HD. In any case, you can definitely tell the difference on a quality screen.
