http://blogs.pcworld.com/staffblog/archives/000171.html A discussion about the different HDTV formats out today. Mark Cuban over at HDNET would like for broadcasters and manufacturers to get together and offer the juice by way of the finest picture quality available today — but there is some question as to whether or not this will happen.
As for my personal situation, I’m using a Pioneer 43″ Plasma which I believe is at 720p that I bought from Costco and it looks simply amazing. I can’t imagine the picture quality getting much better. At this point I’m not sure any incremental gain at 1080i or 1080p would really make that much difference.
