I will be in the market for a new HD tv next month and will most likely purchase a 50" (or so) size DLP set. I've heard much about the new 1080p sets, however, I've not had the chance to compare 1080p and 1080i side by side. I am also aware that the price difference between the two types of sets can be pretty large. So, my question is, "Does the difference in picture quality between the two sets substantiate the difference in cost?" I'm looking to spend no more than $2,000 to $2,500.00. If the difference in picture quality is minimal (and yet noticable), I'd likely defer to 1080i. If the difference is pretty large, I'd hold off on my purchase until the price of 1080p sets drops lower to my idealized price range. Your thoughts are appreciated!
