YOUR TV setup; can you tell the difference between 720p/1080p?

60" Samsung Plasma. Yes, I can tell the difference , but it's marginal...imo.

Go play one of those 2d games, castle crashers or whatever. Notice how clear it is? That's 1080p and that's how clear all games would be if they could run them at that type of res.

You can see a big jump between the two on mine. 100" projection. But to my shame twice after switching locations the xbone was set to 720p and I didn't realize until a bit later.

Really it come down to 720p looks great and 1080p look amazing. Although I've seen tvs that make even 1080p look messy. Depends on your setup.

65 inch plasma.

Even the differences between 1080i and 1080p are vastly noticeable. 720 seems like standard definition to me.

A lot of X1 fans do notice and says it's important:

I have perfect vision. The difference in resolution is minor to the point that it is not really noticeable. At this level the difference in image sharpness is small.


Your vision obviously isn't as good as you think it is. Time for a trip to the ophthalmologist.

I have a 65inch and no I can not. It's not visibly different to me. Yes, There's a slight difference in resolution but it's very hard to see with graphics or cartoon content. Its very slight if it's even there. Resolution has nothing to do with pixels pushed. Don't forget that guys.

You do not know what you're talking about and that's why these topics are stupid. 1080 lines is 1080 lines. Whether it's interlaced or progressive means nothing once displayed on your TV set it becomes progressive. 1080i and 1080p is the exact same resolution. People on this site shouldn't be talking about resolution. I haven't seen one answer backed by knowledge yet.

On my 24" monitor, even going from 1280x720 to 1440x900 or 1440x900 to 1920x1200 is fairly obvious, let alone the jump all the way from 720p directly to 1080p.

That sounds more like a situation of the games you were playing either not actually rendering at 1080p (in which case the 1080p output won't provide as big of a benefit), or that the console was simply natively rendering at a higher resolution to begin with and then downscaling to 720p, which would provide much better image quality than straight 720p rendering would. With consoles it becomes very muddled as to what the resolution of the game itself is, since they often have a disconnect between rendering resolution and output resolution.
