Watched a Blue Ray DVD on my HD TV and realized how artificial the picture looked. My vision is decent. But nothing looks that crisp and sharp in real life. Noticed the same thing on my son's set up. Perhaps 1080p HD needs some refinement. IMO 720p looks more realistic than 1080p.

There are many settings that can affect picture quality, both on the TV and the Bluray player. A decently produced Bluray disc shown on a properly adjusted HDTV is amazing. But if you've seen two TVs with an unnatural picture, it may be your expectations that are the problem.

"Crisp and sharp" tell me that settings need tweaking.

I don't care for the ones I've seen. It almost appears like there is glitter (or very bright points of white light) on the screen. Kind of annoying.

You could be right. OTOH it is a new technology. HD 2.0 could address what I noticed.

What new technology are you talking about? HD and BR have been out for a long time. Am I missing something?

The phrase you seek is "excessive edge enhancement." It is a cheap way to make buyers impressed. Most of the time you can back it off in the settings. Honestly though, if more people today had ever seen a properly handled nitrate film print projected they would be calling HD junk.

I was thinking the same thing.

Well then I'm glad I haven't seen that impossibly high standard, because it can't be produced in the home. Yet.

My standard is a double stacked Runco CRT projector setup from the late 90's at CES. Still the most amazing picture I can remember ever having seen. Next to that are the studio grade Panasonic CRT monitors I've seen.
