Sounds like a mental thing. It mgiht've been better than Standard Def. But it sure isnt' going to be anywhere near Blu Ray or HD DVD. IF even Broadcast HD.
Don't fool yourself into think those ripped and torrented files are of high quality. I guess when it's free, though, it's good. It might be okay for torrents, but it doesn't hold a candle to properly compressed Hi-definition.
