I am in the market for a new hdtv, and I have had my eye on a 32" sharp aquos that displays in 1080p. From reviews I have read in the past, 1080p is really only noticeable in 40"+ screens. Can anyone confirm if this is true? Thanks a bunch!

it's absolutely true...

unless of course you
A. have super human vision
B. sit within 2ft of your screen.

fact of the matter is at normal seating distance and slightly better than 20/20 vision you'd still have to have a display in the 60" range before your eyes would be capable of noticing the difference between 720p and 1080p

I never knew that. I know that this has nothing to do with this conversation, but I personally like Samsung. I think and have heard that Samsung has better tv's and higher quality pictures. It may be a myth or rumor or whatever, but I would personally go with a Samsung. tongue.gif

both great tvs but i would side with the one with the higher contrast ratio and remember to look at the amount of imputs they both have 2 very important things to look at

i can tell you that there is a definite and clear difference at 70"+ between 720P and 1080P but even then you need to get closer than the recomended 13'+ range to see those differences.
