Question for arun,
So far on every Sammy DLP I've seen on display (CC, BB and 2 locations of SA), they have not been input through their DVI connection, and except for the BB, all of them looked fantastic playing either HD net or an instore loop.
Just curious, could you guess quantitatively how much better they'd look had they been input through DVI - 20% better? 50% better?
In my experience, HD over component roughly equals watching SD DVD over DVI. The close ups look good, but the background detail gets lost.
When you first see HD over DVI, which I saw only at home for the first time, it can be quite a pleasant surprise. When I saw superbowl in HD over DVI for example, the detail level was quite astonishing -- blades of grass in the field, sweat beads on players faces, details of the crowd at the stadium. It is as if you are there, but your eyes have gain super vision, and you can see every detail. So it is better than being there.
When you visit the store next time, don't focus on the close ups -- look at the background detail.
I'm not sure how to put it in percentage terms.
