As I've noted in the fine print in the PQ section of the review, I'm viewing these discs on a 1280x720 projector. I'd like to think that I'll be 1920x1080 equipped in the new year depending on products and if I like them or not...
The setting of the Samsung BD player is at 1080i and I've chosen that to see if I can duplicate an artefact I've seen on SD special features and on a theatrical trailer I saw on a Samsung demo disc I have. So far all has been clear! (the artefact wasn't noticable when the player was set at 720p). From my informal tests, there seems to be no resolution difference between the 720p and the 1080i setting on the Samsung running HDMI to my projector and viewed on an 8-foot Da-Lite DA-MAT.
Rachael - sorry to hear you are bummed by Blu-ray. I can't say the same so far...still getting through the titles - my opinions will be posted soon.
