Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com was so kind as to send me the Vizio VX32L for review, a 32" widescreen LCD TV capable of doing 1080i. At USD 469.99, this 32" LCD television is quite affordable, so read on to find out if it is worth your money.

1080i is interlaced, so TVs with 768 lines just have a combined deinterlacer that scales the image at the same time.

Which is a load of shit, as you're losing data and not actually getting the full 1080 picture.

IMO this should be considered false advertising.

It supports the format, but it sure won't display it -as-intended- by the format.

Well, on the other hand, they do have to be able to support that signal format, because, at least here in AL, USA some of the high-def OTA channels I get are broadcast in 1080i only. So either the TV supports and downscales it, or no broadcast for you. I'm on the fence if this is entirely misleading or not, though it should probably at least have a footnote indicating that 1080i gets downscaled to 720.
