If it's a TV release, 720p, that's as high as the native resolutions go for TV broadcasts. Anything above that is an upscale.

Only BDs have native 1080p.

I have shitty Internet. I usually go out of my way to get HD, but it takes quite a bit of time.

Sometimes if I don't want to wait long, I'll get 480p and start playing the file before it's finished downloading. Most frequently, these are HorribleSubs releases. As a side effect, it encourages me to upgrade my copy of the season once the BD RAWs come out.

Some shows, very few, are 1080p native today. There's also mixed elements for most shows that employ some 1080p element, like backgrounds. Otherwise, I think the studios are trending in the 800s and 900s for resolution these days, maybe a full 1080p in a few more years.

I'm on a 65" plasma TV right now. The main benefit is the lack of ghosting from the low response time.

The extra size doesn't help too much with the appearance since it's just reducing the pixel density. The biggest benefit here would just be the comfort of watching it from a distance.

>>101057840
Plasma has good black levels and a low response time. You're not going to find that on any LCD under $5,000:
http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-monitors/cat-oledmonitors/

I've always been scared of them because the first generation plasma had a problem with burn in and (thus?) life expectancy. This one's kind of interesting with its anti-burn-in technology. If you get up close to it, you'll see there's constant noise keeping the pixels in motion at all time. Step back a few feet and you can't notice it.

Plasma's dying as a technolgy, though, since its pixel density is shit. 4K would be impossible on anything under 64 inches.
>>
>>101057840
They have better colours compared to LCDs, as well as better viewing angles if that's relevant. The biggest downside in my experience is that they suffer more from glare if you're using it in a brightly lit room.
>>
>>101058076
Set your refresh to something other than 60Hz. You might be getting interference with your lights. We had to do this all the time to prevent flickering back with CRTs.
>>
>>101058095

No, you're retarded. If you honestly can't see the difference between anime in 480p and anime in native 1080p there is either something seriously wrong with either your monitor or your eyes. The difference is huge.

I watch a lot of stuff on my 2560x1440 monitors though so 480p content might look crappier for me than it does for most people.

720, I have a shit tier 1600x900 monitor and upscaling and downscaling are roughly the same, so might as well save space.

Hidamari Sketch signals the return of Cinerama.
>>
>>101059563
Let me add that a large TV is also not as loud and, in the long run, is cheaper.
>>
Anime? 720p, downloads faster, uses less space and looks the same as 1080p.

But for films I'd go for 1080p if I can, since it actually does make a difference.

Anime is all monoshaded (is that the word?) bullshit 99% of the time and the backgrounds don't even move so there's no reason besides autism to bother with 1080p.

Seriously, why the fuck? There's no reason to justify the size difference if it's encoded properly.
>>
Is there a difference between 720 and 1080? I've seen conflicting arguments when it comes to this.

I usually download 1080 because why the fuck not. I'm not using that space for anything else.
>>
>>101058948
Because higher resolutions are not necessarily better viewing experiences for TV rips. 720p upscaled on your end by madVR is likely going to look better than 1080p as upscaled by Crunchyroll or whoever actually does it.

Actually, anime needs HD more than live action shows and games do.

I tried 1080 for a awhile a few years back on shows that are currently airing, but honestly after trying 720, I don't notice a lick of difference.

Honestly I don't even know why sub groups are even using 1080 for "airing" shows. Waste of time on everyone's part

Always 480, I watch anime in a quarter screen size window on the corner of a monitor while I'm doing other shit, sort of as a distraction.

Like someone said earlier, people would probably complain if it wasn't available. Which is retarded but if giving them upscales shuts them up, who cares?

The smaller the monitor, the more compact the pixels will be, the better the picture. Bigger is not better.

Projectors suck in general.

It's only HorribleSubs, which directly copies Crunchyroll, which has a 1080p setting (only an upscale of 720p version) to trick the kiddies.

That being said, I'm not sure why horriblesubs releases the upscaled version.

1080 if good
720 if otherwise

>>101064848
Because of the idiots who, as seen in this thread, believe that bigger numbers always means better quality.

What resolution is the show mastered in?
