    I agree Laserjock. I just bought a new Pioneer Plasma, and didn't see any reason to go pure 1080i. This is 8th generation, and they still don't see the need to make 1080i only, but of course it's supported. Bring on football.

    LJ, i apologize if i seem to be coming off a little hard on this topic

    my experience is based on 'personal' in home evaluation
    I've had the opportunity to not only compare display types but there respective resolutions
    I can tell you, imo, that I prefer LcoS over DLP and LCD (I've owned all 3)
    and 1080p over 1080i
    perhaps that's just a biased ,personal opinion
    but it is mine ..... and I have real experience with both

    everyone I've heard that claims to not see a difference is not in ownership of the equipment to make the statement, and have only seen equipment in a retail store or some other facility.

    this back and forth "yes it does, no it doesn't" is meaningless
    if you don't see it - don't buy it
    but don't base the assumption that there is no difference in the technologies based purely on demo's you've seen in stores

    Pioneer started making FULL 1080p Plasmas last year

    there are 2 models (that I know of) that are full 1920x1080 (1080p)

    Pioneer PDP-5000EX http://www.onecall.com/ProductDetails.aspx?id=87857

    Pioneer Elite PRO-FHD1
    Pioneer 1080P Plasma Television Awarded Product of the Year
    Pioneer Elite PRO-FHD1 Honored at CES 2007 by Sound and Vision Magazine and Ultimate AV

    -Description of Pioneer PROFHD1 / PRO-FHD1:
    1080p Progressive Image Reproduction
    2,073,600-Pixels (Full 1920 x 1080)
    --The PRO-FHD1 accepts and processes a broad variety of the most fashionable HD signals, including 1920x1080 at 24, 30 and 60fps. --

    btw - Most LCD and Plasma display have a native 1365 x 768-pixel resolution (meaning that 1080p signals via the HDMI connection will be downscaled)
    so these displays are disqualified as being applicable candidates for tests

    Pioneer PDP5080HD

    Broadcast Standards
    HDTV Compatible Yes
    HDTV Built-in Tuner Yes
    Broadcast Format Displayed 720p (HDTV)

    Broadcast Format Supported 1080i (HDTV)
    480i (SDTV)
    480p (EDTV)
    720p (HDTV)

    You missed my point. I know they make full 1080p's, but for $3000 less, you can have darn near the same picture quality as a Pro series. This is a brand new release for this year, and the format is still 720p...that's all I was trying to say.
