I'm running an AVS poll on that very subject right now for those that 
recently got a 1080p display for Xmas, or wherever.  The results 
strongly suggest (against my expectations) that deinterlaced 1080i is 
superior.  Though the number of respondents is still small (30 with a 
1080p display).  See:


It is always a mystery to me why 1080i continues to do so well but it 
often looks better to me too.  But I don't have a 1080p display yet.
