Which is Better 1080i Or 1080p?

Why 1080p is theoretically better than 1080i. 1080i, the former king of the HDTV hill, actually boasts an identical 1,920×1,080 resolution but conveys the images in an interlaced format In a tube-based television, otherwise known as a CRT, 1080i sources get painted on the screen sequentially: the odd-numbered lines of resolution appear on your screen first, followed by the even-numbered lines–all within 1/30 of a second. Progressive-scan formats such as 480p, 720p, and 1080p convey all of the lines of resolution sequentially in a single pass, which makes for a smoother, cleaner image, especially with sports and other motion-intensive content. As opposed to tubes, microdisplays and other fixed-pixel TVs, including plasma and LCD flat-panel, are inherently progressive in nature, so when the incoming source is interlaced, as 1080i is, they convert it to progressive scan for display
