I'm not looking for any debates or arguments here.

I just bought a 32 inch Sanyo 720p LED HDTV for really cheap.

I watch Blueray movies on it, but I decided to connect my rMBP through HDMI and play some games.

Playing games on the TV is awesome and I absolutely love it, but WOW the display is so different compared to the rMBP.

That retina screen really looks so much better than any normal HD display.

I haven't really noticed how huge a difference it was until now.

What is so funny about this, is that last year 720p or even 1080p looked vivid and clear to me.

Now they seem fuzzy, I am currently running at 1360 by 768

Has anyone here had a similar experience?

That has happened to me to! I have the 13 inch rMBP, and even HD does not look the same. I especially notice a difference when I use my dads 27 inch iMac. The only thing that looks the same quality is my iPhone 4S!
