720p vs. 1080 and 1080i vs. 1080p
i originally bought a 1080p dlp (boy was that a mistake) read my review to see what problems i had, it had a great contrast ratio and good black levels but the picture was horrible it was great for gaming tho.
as soon as i started looking for a TV to watch movies and broadcast on i started pointing out 720p's (larger then 40in) as i was walking down the aisle (i can actually see the blank spaces between the pixels, and i can fairly accurately guess the contrast ratio), really hd is relative to the size of the TV, a 50" 1080 isn't going to be nearly as Highly Defined as a 15" 720p, right now I'm on the highest def monitor i have its a 17" CRT that pulls 1200p (4:3) and it has a better picture then any TV i have seen so far.
30i vs 60(p)fps
if your comparing a movie such as the queen (i vs. p) your not going to see much difference, i see a sizable amount of difference between i and p when watching action movies (which is most of what i watch) i use i for my hddvr because most of the TV shows i watch are either originally broadcast in i (so there's no reason for the extra bandwidth to be wasted) and aren't high action (the simpsons, house, etc, etc.).
i bought a 1080p LCD from walmart the picture is ok but the black is way to bright, if cannon would get off there a**'s and get sed out I'm sure we would see a entirely new and better picture then the ones we are seeing now.
