I have never seen it , but i think since this technology is looming in the horizon, we need a thread that specifically adresses 1080p vs 1080i, so we all don't rush out and discard our sets, not knowing what we are getting into.
Even HD dvd is 1080i, what all we know 1080p will never be in the networks transmission scenario, so it may be a technology whose promise will never be fullfilled. Unfilled scan lines give for a poor picture, with artificts, as i witnessed on a 1080p Samsung, and Mitsubishi DLP set, that i had them play a dvd on.
This thread will be an interesting thread on this specific contrast of the two competing display technolgies, 10801/1080p

This article has been hashed, rehashed, bunked, debunked, ad infinitum. It's already been decided here that it's not very accurate or well-researched and the writer is biased. It's nothing new....
