    I've seen them movies sooo many times I couldnt' be arsed to get them on hd. What size is you tv? Do you get full 1080p hd?

    Can't wait until HD porn becomes popular. Very difficuly to find a free online site. (I've seen some movies and it made my eyes bleeed.)

    I've got mine hooked up to a monitor 1680x1050 and it looks better than using a 1080p tv because its got a better specs than my Sony's.
    I HAVE to get a blu ray drive but soo much money and I'm a typical student.

    The first thing I got was planet earth and it was amazing! The animated stuff is ridiculously clear especially the simpsons.

    Watching shows I used to watch on normal definition in high definition is the best feeling in the world. I almost had an orgasm watching lost!

    I run my PC @ 1080p.

    It's not powerful enough to run full HD. :sad:

    Not powerful enough?? Well my Monitor is a 24" screen 1080p and i havnt actually found anything yet thats mind blowing mostly because my GPU upscales most videos to near HD.

    1080p Iron Man and Batman Begins are nice, as is the Top Gear polar special. I don't have too many 1080p rips as they consume a fair bit of space.

    24" monitor that does 1920x1200 for reference.

    No seriously, that ***** amazing in HD, I suppose a lot of other BBC nature documentaries like it are aswell.
    Of course as well as all the great-looking action movies or whatever, it is worth buying a big-ass TV with a blu-ray player just for Planet Earth, seriously. Especially if you've never seen it before.

    Never seen any documentaries in Full HD but i bet they are absolutely immense!
    Run at 1080p on my 37 inch TV all the time. And I'm lucky enough to have 2 blu ray drives, PS3 and a BD-RW in my PC woop!
