Eww, why the hell would you watch movies in full screen?  You're losing a bunch of the picture!

Don't get me wrong, widescreen is muccchhh better. Its just I like having a bigger picture to watch, ya know? If I had a bigger t.v. I would deffinitly go with widescreen. Besides, half my movies are widescreen, half are full screen. Just depends which I pick up first in stores Tongue

I agree with Funk, widescreen all the way...I try to always rent/buy DVDs in widescreen since u do lose so much of the picture. However I've also spoken with lots of other people who don't like the black bars on normal TVs, lol.

So *shrug* it's a tossup on preference, I like widescreen tho.

HD 1080 is from what I understand, likely going to be 1900 by something, right?  HD tends to be the widescreen, specifically if you're getting the Sony cams, or the New Pan's or JVC's.  They are all widescreen when recording HD.

So yeah, HD wide.

But if not, then SD wide.

Yeah.

I too am much more fond of widescreen. I don't think of it as loosing TV efficiency as... well, For every bit of black there is, that's that much more of the original image that you're seeing.

That ratio is probably wrong Smiley

I don't mind the black bars, I go with Widescreen over fullscreen any day. Maybe Starwalker has bad vision that he needs to see movies in fullscreen. I have a 22 inch screen T.V., I don't mind widescreen black bars on it.

Yea, my vision isnt great. Im nearsighted, and my t.v. isn't close enough to my couch, so It bothers me. The funny thing is, I got bad vision from being to close to the television and the computer Tongue. The sad thing is, Im on th computer 24/7, making my eyes worse, so I put on my glasses and sit as far way from the comp as possible; of course, thats not far enough Tongue. Oh well, theres my excuss, and I voted for hd  Smiley
