    Hi all,
    Really quick question...Forgive me if I posted in the wrong place.

    I'm wondering if there is a huge difference between SD and HD when it comes to iTunes. Sure, HD is high def, but is SD still ok looking? I was about to buy a season of a TV show I really wanted to get, when I noticed it's only SD. I want this to at least look nice on a 27 inch monitor. May possibly stream to a TV in the future, but not at the moment... would it not look great? Should I just buy the DVD for quality sake? Or does iTunes SD really look ok?

    Thanks

    It depends on the spec of your mac, if you have the HD space for HD itunes stuff then go for it! Especially if your displaying it on a large monitor

    Yeah. I just compared some free SD and HD footage from iTunes and SD does definitely look bad.
