I’m confused

Can't figure out why my gopro hd hero video quality is very unsharp/unclear.

I was wondering, I just got my gopro hd hero and was sort of unimpressed by the video quality. I tried both 720p 60fps and 1080p 30fps. I tried it out on a mostly sunny day with a few clouds and noticed everything was pretty nice looking except for the overall resolution/clarity. It looked sort of blurry and just not sharp at all. especially compared to videos I have seen online! I also used Quicktime as my video playback and wmp. Please help, thanks!

    Just got mine today, same version as yours, and tried the same settings as you. I tried it indoors, and the quality is horrible. Very grainy. I have a little Kodak Zi8 HD camera that is way higher quality. I don't understand how something can be called HD when the picture looks like it has a sand texture applied to it. Very dissatisfied. Probably going to return it tomorrow.
