In order to compare the various resolutions, one MUST be comparing APPLES TO APPLES (source and destination [or in this case, rendering device (aka, TV)]), or your REVIEW of 720i, 1080i, and 1080p is, as you say, how well the particular television renders a non-native INPUT SOURCE.
If, however, youre asking if any given individual can tell the difference between 720i, 1080i, 1080p resolutions, then thats all subjective and (as LOL was saying) dependent on a MATCHED SET of INPUTS to television rendering resolutions.
Personally, I looked for a HDTV which not only renders 4:3 well, but also supported the 1080p (the current highest resolution) and purchased a DVD player which can generate 1080p to match.
Discussing 720i, 1080i and 1080p with non-matching video INPUTS is like discussing the pros and cons of various digital cameras megapixels based on how well the images print out on 300 DPI printers (not exactly the best way to judge the quality of the image captured, dont you agree?).
