1080i versus 1080p is the difference between a full glass of water and a glass of water with one sip taken out of it.
Its easy to see the flaws in an interlaced picture at 480 lines....at 1080 lines its much harder to spot. But LCD's and DLP's are progressive devices so naturally it seems feasable that 1080p would be a reality.
Still, a word to the wise: Just because a company says it can do something, doesnt mean that developers will take the time to use the feature, or for that matter to balance their softare for use at that resolution.
A game that runs with full visual effects at 720p or 1080i might play unacceptably slow at 1080p.
Westinghouse has a really cheap 32 or 37" Set, I want to say its $2 grand (cheap as in comparible to other LCD flat-panel sets, not projectors).....it supposedly does 1080p, but its contrast ratio is 600:1 I think...not too good.
there is no such thing a san input that can take an 1080p input signal...the answer to this thread should be a simple.....NOTHING.
the 1080p tv's that are coming out don't take a 1080p signal...they UPCONVERT to an 1080p signal.
1080p is not an input standard as of now and wont be for a while....DVI nore HDMI can't display it...so your talking about an upgrade to these ports...and thats going to take a while. when they upgrade to 1080p inputs...you will not see an "afordable" model for a couple years....if they show up in 2006....expect to pay the premium...continuing to 2007 expect to pay a little less...but its still going to be higher than the majority will be will to pay for.
1080p on ps3 is just an big number they can throw out so they can say look...were more high definition than xbox 360 is. its games are going to be 720p and 1080i just like the 360's. Just get a decent hdtv and be happy.
