High definition good, standard definition bad

A not-very-interesting article at the New York Times about various movie downloading devices pointed me at this article at iLounge on the differences in video quality between Blu-Ray, high def AppleTV, high def cable, (upconverted) standard def DVD, and standard def AppleTV — obviously teeming with comparison photos.As you would expect, Blu-Ray wins out in all comparisons, but seeing the difference is… uh… neat. What’s kind of surprising is how the color reproduction on the HD cable images is absolute shit.

One thing I would have liked to have seen, though, is images of non-upconverted standard DVDs, but whatevs.
