    I know 1080p video looks great on the iMac's display but I would like to know how lower res video looks on both the 21.5" and 27" models at fullscreen:
    Eyetv
    Hulu and other TV streaming
    Netflix streaming

    I'm looking for feedback from people who actually own these iMacs. Thanks!

    I'm not an owner of one, but my friend has 27" with EyeTV and it looks pretty good if your nose is not in the glass :p. It's watchable with a distance but I assume you are going to watch it from distance when in full screen

    I don't find it too bad. In fact, it's pretty much the same as any other screen.

    I have a 24" iMac with a resolution of 1920x1200, and hulu looks decent. It's a little grainy through. Since your iMac is 1920x1080 but over 21.5 inches, video would probably look even better.
    That wasn't helpful, he said he knows 1080p already looks great on the screen. He was talking about lower res video.

    Oh, right-- sorry for jumping the topic post.

    I've watched both lower resolution hulu and/or youtube vids on both my iMac G5 20 inch and this new 27 inch. The qualities are about the same.
