Wait. Isn't 1080i better than 1080p? Or is it actually the other way around? :/

i dont understand what you are saying? 1080i and 1080p is the same resolution... but the p is the scanning mode, which is the only scanning mode that lcd computer monitors do.

where do you see that 1080i is 540? "1080i is a high-definition television (HDTV) video mode. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels and a frame resolution of 1920 1080 or about 2.07 million pixels."

also 1080i is 30Hz not 33500Hz
