That might depend on your source material. A lot of it was originally  
1080i and was converted to progressive scan, in which case you  
probably wouldn't see much difference.

With true 1080p material you should see fewer motion artifacts and an  
overall better picture if your equipment can truly present a good  
1080p display.

A lot of sources, especially in smaller markets, are just  
upconverting SD material and calling it "HD", in which case you get  
all of the original problems plus conversion artifacts. This is what  
happens when the government mandates a conversion to digital.
