How do you think the image from the HD2+ 1280x720 looks compared
to the image from a 9 in. CRT that displays one pixel at a time?
Also there is very little 720p content, most content is 1080i, so there will
much less processing, in general, having a 1080p display than a 720p
display since 1080i60fps can be de-interlaced to 1080p30fps with
no conversion - just simply de-interlacing. Also HD-DVD stores the image
The wobulated 720p sets had some issues with softness etc. but many
are reporting very detailed images with the 1080p sets. Also the
black level and contrast ratio of the new 1080p DLP chips has bumped
them up to a new level even if the resolution wasn't increased.
