1080i vs 1080P

I just got my sony bluray player in today and just wanted to know from you guys.. I have a 1080i TV is it worth the difference to buy a 1080P I am able to broadcast the bluray in 1080i and it seems very clear to me.. what difference would I gain. Iam also running HDMI cable.

That's not very nice


You'll be fine with what you have. Obviously there is a difference, but if you already have a 1080i tv it is very difficult to justify the cost difference. Now if you didn't already have a 1080i capable monitor, I would suggest getting one capable of displaying 1080p.

To me, 1080p is well worth the difference.

yeah, seeing as you've already got a 1080i, I wouldn't replace it just to upgrade...

now, if you moved the old one to the bedroom and got a bigger 1080p for the living room? hmm

no, your fine....not worth the cash at all.....and keep in mind the only thing capable of displaying the 1080p is a HD player or the Blu Ray player.....all the other TV you watch will be 1080i at best.

That's what I did. 73" in the main living room, and 65" in the bedroom. Is it too big for the bedroom? Hell yes. It's ridiculously awesome, though.

But I don't rent or buy DVDs anymore, only Bluray movies.

Also unless you are getting 42" or bigger you won't really notice the advantage of the 1080p set.

Maybe you guys have eagle vision, but when I'm 15 feet away, I can't tell any difference at all.

What type of media were you comparing? The difference is pretty significant between 1080i programming and a Bluray movie in 1080p. You'd really have to be blind not to notice.

Not necessary. 1080i over HDMI looks very good. At least it does on my equipment.
