Bluray Vs .MKV HD files

Just wondering if I would notice any difference in quality on a 37" 720p LCD TV from a Bluray disc compared to a 1080p .MKV film (Average Bitrate of 7000).

I am looking to upgrade the TV in the near future to Full HD so would Bluray give a better picture with having a higher bitrate than the MKV film.

Thanks

Yes, the bit rate makes a noticeable different indeed. Most blurays now have a bitrate of over 25mbps just for the video.

At certain times, yes, the Blu-ray will outshine a heavily compressed MKV. It really does depend on the bitrate, it won't be massively different, just at certain times in certain movies, where artifacts are noticeable on MKVs, there will be no such thing on a Blu-ray because there is no compression.

Is it worth spending money to achieve perfection? Depends on your income ;-)

Personally I've found that I only bother with watching stuff on bluray if it's a movie with lots of visual/special effects like batman dark knight etc.. for anything else DVD quality is sufficient when watching on PS3 as it has excellent upscaling abilities in my experience.

Just watched the Matrix MKV 1080p and it looks great and it is only 8gig for video and audio. Could the Bluray look any better with a higher bitrate ?

agreed, although some films with lots of landscapes or close ups look much better. but agreed since i went from a progressive scan dvd player to the ps3 the upscaling is brilliant!

yeah it will make a difference especially with the matrix films. ive compared for example transformer in mkv, HD-dvd, bluray, nac3 hd rip(heavy heavy compression, and dvd...hd and bluray were easily the best although the mkv was very close.

Yeah, I meant things like that too..

And agree about the matrix, watched it both in mkv and bluray... and bluray won hands down :)

a lot will depend on the skill of who creates the rip.

While a lot of apps over the years now offer a 1 click rip option you can (well you should be able to) notice the differnece between a 1 click rip solution and the work of someone who started ripping in the 90's and who loved the days of AC3 audio filters and has since moved onto the wonders of HD and pays little attention to TDX rules so they actually produce good rips :)
