Well, regardless of the internet connection speeds, I would have considered
720p to be "mid quality," but I work with video for a living and tend to be a
bit of a videophile. Between work and doing stuff like messing with encoding
settings for transcoding Blu-rays, I've pretty much been ruined. I practically
can't watch DVDs anymore, and even Blu-rays frequently look pretty bad to me.

But obviously, streaming high quality video over the internet can be expensive
(and networks tend to behave badly even when you're just streaming a lot of
video locally).
