Id order right now, But Im just so scared its upscaling abilities wont be as good, possibly Im scared for nothing but hey.
As far as the 1080i vs 1080p talk.
If you take a 24p source, telecine it to 1080i then inverse telecine it back to a 24p source then pullup to 1080p60 if needed, all while in the digital domain(HDMI/DVI) then there is no difference, Theoredical nor Practical, and this is fact. So I wouldnt get worked up about it.
