Couldn't tell the difference on my 32" much.
46" and 55" is a big difference. Sound too.

Yes I can tell the difference between standard definition and 1080p HD.

Re: Can YOU Honestly tell between dvd and blu-ray ?????

We went nuts last year and did the 103" projector setup with 1080p as standard, so we've been living with it for about a year.
We can definitely tell the difference between blu-ray and DVD, no question.
But, we have to be looking for it.
The DVD's look a bit better in the blu-ray player, no doubt.
The biggest thing it does is allow more freedom for what we want to watch.
Sometimes from the library, only the blu-ray of something is available.
I have Star Trek (the reboot movie) on DVD. I borrowed a co-worker's blu-ray version.
There's not enough of a difference that I now have to have blu-ray or I feel cheated.
The Tivo is still standard def, and that's not going to change unless someone gifts us an HD Tivo with lifetime service.
If I'm going out to buy a disc, if the blu-ray is about 3 bucks more or there is significantly more content that is must see, I'll go for the extra cost.
5 bucks more, no way.

Dramatic difference! It's noticeable enough on my 50" Plasma Samsung that when I want to rent a movie, if it's not available on BR I usually won't watch the movie. Regular DVDs bug me now. I do sit about 8' away to watch. From across the room I can't tell.

Huge difference on a 42" TV. Even bigger difference on my 21" computer monitors, because my computer doesn't upconvert DVDs.

Interesting point. Players without good upconverting would yield a more dramatic difference, since the regular DVD would look worse. Could explain some of the difference of opinion here.
