name='artemis778']Still wondering if HD (Blue ray etc) is worth a look for the smaller TV sets.
Upscaling does pretty nicely, and I've read a few articles that say you
won't notice the difference. What's the experience of Brit Forum members?
I also read a review of the Blu Ray 'Clockwork Orange' which was negative
with regard to grain as a result of HD upgrading, so given my preference
for older films, is this a typical outcome I could expect, as well?
At the risk of repeating myself : Blu-Ray is the last disc system there will be - the question is how long will it be before downloading and hard drives take over. I suspect not very long and the manufacturers know this fine well. I'm sitting on my hands with upscaling at the moment and from my own experiences the hike up in quality is not as great as say VHS to good DVD. 1TB + hardrives are already out there and downloading is already going on. It just seems a non-event to me.
32" LCDs are not 1080p but are often compatible with it and you have to go to 37" before any of the manufacturers are making them 1080p. You are probably doing as well as you can at the moment.
