It could be because I see "almost" no difference in 480i and 480P but the 1080i sure is sweet.......
And 1080P TVs are a little expensive for my blood. I was going to buy one but $700 to $1000 more for a 50" 1080i? I didn't think so.
I'm not too thrilled about 1080P TV nor High Definition DVDs, hardware is too expensive and so it's the media.
Besides the technology isn't refined yet, and they aren't about to broadcast 1080p anytime soon (bandwith constraints)... Currently I recommend to people who ask to stick with 720P as long as they plan on upgrading within the next 4 years.
