It does not take a BluRay player to see all the lines and wrinkles on faces, or the stubble hair by hair on guys.
I only have a 42" early Sony Plasma 720p max resolution.
I can see clearly all sorts of tiny imperfections.
I use a power conditioner, and over the air broadcasts, (especially newscasts and sports are crystal clear HD material and for movies just an upsampling Denon 5910 DVD player.
(Some dvds certainly have low resolution and do not look so great, but many are very good)
So the clarity has little to do with you specific player.
