I agree, and in my opinion, most people have never seen how good a 480p picture looks from a standard-def DVD. But as I've said, we tend to be new toy lemmings and we all follow the first one off the technology cliff. Oh wait...you're leading the pack, aren't you?
With my own old eyes I finally am able to see the difference between I and P On my 72" set I saw mabey a 5% better picture with my new blue ray player WHY STRESS ABOUT HAVING TO BUY A 1080P With a good set up you are going to have a movie theater quality picture in 1080I WHY WANT SOMETHING BETTER? I only hope blue ray takes off picture quality over the top was it worth $1000 ? it is built like a tank beautiful to look at and if I will be able to rent new movies that would be awsome stew happy day all
