On anything but 50 inch + screens, 720p is virtually identical to 1080p?

I'd say that at smaller screen sizes - 37 or 40/42in, for example - one can get too hung up on the whole 1080P thing, rather than looking at the basic quality of the set. Even at larger sizes it's debatable - we have a fairly old Fujistu 50in plasma at home, and I haven't seen anything yet that's tempted me to fork out the cash and upgrade, even though the old monster 'only' does 720p/1080i.


Thanks Andrew

I 've never been able to differentiate between 720p and 1080p on any TV less than 50inches, so was wondering why there are so many budget DVD Player Upscalers on the Market that do go up to 1080p when surely one should be looking at more expensive higher quality 1080p players to match 50+ inch TV's. I suspect this is why the likes of Cambridge Audio, with their new V2 Azur DVD Player rules out 1080p for TV's up to 42inches and instead has concentrated on producing higher quality 720p and 1080i resolutions?

Also, when you look at the Pioneer Kuros which are by far the best screens on the market for PQ (according to most reviewers and many consumers as well), then you see they're only 720P. Just shows pixel count isn't everything!
