lol at the last part ... I once bought a 15ft hdmi cable on ebay for 99 cents (+ $10 for shipping ...). At the time, at FutureShop, the same cable (same length, but Monster) was something like $200 ...

but I disagree on the 1080p vs 1080i, it definitely pays to get 1080p. My 1080i TV has a 1024x768 resolution (with rectangular pixels), 1080p have 1920x1080, which is almost 3 times as many pixels.

Still, unless you watch it from very close, or have really really good eyes, the difference is fairly minor. Where I can see a huge difference though, is when I hook up my computer. The text looks very blurry and is basically impossible to read from a distance, on a 1080p we had at work once, the text was very crisp and a joy to watch.
