We have a 37" TV and I think that's too big, but you would need to buy up to a 50" TV to see the real difference. Don't get me wrong the picture looks excellent, but you would need to have an IMAX in your living room and spend thousands of dollars on a sound system to fully reep its beniffits.
Can I get this in big bold type, please? While I'm not yet convinced this is the laser disc of the 00's, I think I'll be one of the stragglers here. The difference between VHS and DVH were easily distinguishable, especially on older films (the ones that have been spruced up a bit). Additionally, little differences like chapter stops and extra features made it obvious which was the better format. While I'm sure there is a difference in quality (anyone see Planet Earth on a big screen in high definition? I cried it was so beautiful), for those of us with smaller televisions, the difference isn't as considerable.
