Like I said, if you believe that, then try playing 128x72 video on a 1440p screen and tell me if it looks good.

Depends on the device that scales it, but if it scales perfectly, it should look good.


I still have no idea what you mean by "stretching". That means increasing image size further than original, right? How does it matter if each pixel is still its own pixel without issues, in a 2x2 grid?

No offense was taken. All I was pointing out is that it also makes no sense to say that of something you aren't understanding.

I do not prefer pixelation nor interpolation. Both are unacceptable to me. Cropping isn't ideal either (unless it's minor, like, say, 1920x1080 on a 1920x1200 display), but it is far more acceptable to me.

They will, when there are 1600p movies.
Says who? You seem to be basing way too much around just video content. There is alot more to PC use than video content, and beside videos which are made to be 1:1 for 1080p, there is no reason higher resolutions, like 1440p, isn't as "supported" as 1080p. That was the point I was trying to make all along.

Because you end up with pixelation. Not having interpolation doesn't mean stretching/pixelation isn't an issue.

He's right. With 720p video on a 1440p screen there are 2 pixels of screen resolution for every one pixel of video. This won't make for distortion... The pixel aspect ratios are the same.

If you mean it's a lower resolution and it's gonna be bigger? I said if the size is the same, and of course lower resolutions look worse, my point was about the 1280x720 reoslution looking as good on both resolutions. Not that it doesn't look worse than native 2560x1440 for example.

4 pixels, 2x2.*

I was simply answer the question you asked. You appeared to be asking how it mattered so long as it was a resolution that won't interpolate, and I gave a reason. It won't interpolate, but it'll still appear more pixelated (or blurred depending on how the software handles it) since you are stretching it beyond it's normal size.

God, I really don't understand why you people fail to grasp this concept.

Let's drop the issue of the distortion caused when you stretch 1 pixel over 3.

If you have a 1080p monitor and you play 1080p video, it looks fantastic.

If you re-encode said video into 192x108 resolution, it will look terrible in comparison.

That is my entire argument.

Why is there such snobbery about TN panels here? My monitor looks great and fit my budget perfectly. Would I like an IPS panel? Sure, but my Sammy gets the job done and looks damn good doing it too....

Okay. we have a mishap here. First of all, here are two factors we don't exactly agree on. First, that is software scaling and thus most likely not perfect, and will be distorted.

AND the most important one, you've misunderstood what I was saying. I was saying that if you are viewing strictly 1280x720 material, it doesn't matter if you view it through a 1280x720 monitor or a 2560x1440 monitor, as long as the thing that scales it does it perfectly, which sometimes doesn't happen.

Not that there wouldn't be a difference between 2560x1440 and 1280x720 video material for example, which you seem to imply with that last bit.
