I can hardly tell the difference between them. Except that HD is darker and you can see a tiny bit more detail in the landscape scenes. Besides that I can`t really see any difference at all.

Why were Viggo`s eyes blue in one pic then turned green when it was the HD pic??? Weird.

I host that site and did the comparison -- you guys blew through 100GB of bandwidth in two days so the site got throttled. I opened up more bandwidth but...be nice. :-)

misscutieroo...you may need glasses if you can`t tell...and if you have them, i`m afraid they aren`t working

If you do go HD get a flat widescreen, i got a philips and it really is worth it...well if your a visuals junkie

ok im gonna b honest...some pictures i really could see the difference, but others just seemed darkeer. I hav an HDTV and i like to watch it and stuff but it wasnt worth how much it cost... i would rather have gotten a high end projector isntead of the HD. btw- is it just me or was the HDTV darkened on purpose, when i watch my HDTV it makes the picture clearer but definately not darker

regular DVDs and even regular TV isn`t nearly as bad as that looks. In fact, the HD looks normal to me. I`ve seen HD, it`s better than that.

People who think that shot 9 contains a goblin should indeed be shot.

Incredible. When VHS was introduced in the late 70s/early 80s, everyone went, "Wow, you can watch and record stuff. You can`t get better." Then came DVDs, and everyone went, "Wow, that`s about a million times better than VHS. Fantastic." Now there`s HD. It seems that as long as there is a standard, someone must rise above it and produce something that does the same, but so much better. I can`t imagine what`s next. 3D holograms like we see projected from R2-D2 in Star Wars? Or how about the Holodeck in Star Trek?

Hmmm, it may look prettier but i`d never shell out however much it is just for good picture quality.

LOL..this was a great idea. I can see this difference with my Xbox 360. I had the basic composite cables and was hooking them up to my Philips HD TV...I decided to go buy the Component cables, and d*mn it made a massive difference!!!

LOL

I love how much crisper the lines are and the massive difference in the color richness. Run`n the 360 on a regular TV vs an HD is the whole difference in "next generation" quality...if you have and HD system (HD player/Xbox 360/etc) and no HD tv..well you really aren`t seeing what it SHOULD look like, trust me..ok...i`m done heheh

It`s really an incredible differnce, I wish I had the money to buy a HD tv, really though I think the ultimate in home theater technology is the tv projector, I don`t know if thats the actual term but I`d like to watch movies in giant 8 x 8 feet rather than 60 inches. I can`t wait to see how technolgy advances in visual displays the future to come.
