It would explain a lot of the posts on this board.

Like the engineers said, if you sit back 10 ft from a 50" or bigger screen you can tell the difference, other wise you cant, but some think they can and will argue that the electronics designers/engineers are wrong. smh I assume your tv is bigger than 50"?

Is it common for gamers to sit like 15,20 feet away from their tv. Everyone I know sits relatively close. Heck, as a kid we all sat inches from the tv.

I'm basically late to the party, but it's the fact that you made your topic title not mention screen size and distance in the first place. Without reading past the topic title and the first sentence of your post, it does sound pretty trolly, and people likely jumped to assumptions. Especially since it's even more unlikely for them to read past the first dozen or so posts to jump at you.

That and people familiar with resolutions higher than 720p are likely viewing them at closer distances than recommended. This is especially true with people who have 1080p computer monitors, or the many I've read who use their large TVs from 5-7 feet away. This is substantiated by another source that argues a similar argument like yours, which has a calculator that confirms 7 feet as the distance where 50" 1080p starts to be completely noticable against a same sized 720p:

A higher pixel density allows the image be more crisp and smooth. A lower pixel density is going to look worse. How noticeable is irrelevant. Better is better and worse is worse. The thing is even with higher resolution a game can still be terrible or have terrible visuals. Same goes with a game with lower resolution being a better game and looking better.

I have a 32" and sit about 6ft away. I didn't know about the screen size until just now. So if I ever get a 50" or bigger I will have to adjust my living room to sit back more than 10ft, but I don't think I will ever want a tv more than 42", unless I get a bigger house. I like sitting as close to the tv as possible for the experience.
