Now first off, NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH STREAMING QUALITIES lol!
But HD, hi-def viewing, as an end product, well.... it's pretty rubbish really isn't it!
In context, I have been using hi-end graphics cards for at least 10 years and therefore always getting the maximum readable resolution out of a screen! So suddenly HD TV comes along and everyone loves it... but I'm thinking, I've been watching TV upscaled to better resolution for longer than CRT widescreen has been available!!
Then I get to thinking about how true 3d and full HDx2/HDx3* has existed for more than 50 years, and I have to ask. How sad is your life if you get excited by a 1080p TV?
* 50 years ago 'full hd' as we know it was already easily achievable. double, even triple, resolution was possible 35 years ago.
