HDTV is nothing more than a way to reap yet more hard earned dollars from consumers.  While I do wear glasses  I know people with 20/20 vision who can see no diference, not to mention the fact that non HDTV is clear enough already.  Hell back when the original Star trek Episodes were on TV ....they were crystal clear.

But don't let my opinion sway you....be a sheep.....go spend a fortune on HDTV and media....so the rest of us will get price breaks on regular TV   lol

So, the original Star Trek series from 1966 was cristal clear and the only improvement in the last 42 years is all just taking money from consumers' pockets. Hmm. A novel idea, but the vast improvements in this technology have changed the more than fattening up HDTV makers pockets. How can ANYBODY see no difference? First, the 16x9 ratio shows the NATIVE resolution of movies...even the original Star Wars series was shot in wide screen, and reformatted to fit non-HDTV's. Older tv's cut off part of the video we're seeing today, not including the resolution and quality differences.

It's easy to tell the difference between 1080i and 1080p side by side...and far easier for anybody with half-decent eye sight to tell the difference between the two. You might want to have your friends with so called "20/20" vision get their eyes checked.

eh speak for yourself, HDTV is nice, not much better than DTV but it's hard to buy a DTV that isn't an HDTV
