If $100 is your budget you should be able to(once again) get the Toshiba A2 HDDVD player for under $100. Watch the black Friday sales.
It does a good job at upscaling SDDVD's to 1080i. You won't see a difference between 1080i or p depending on the TV's upscaler.
Read the reviews at Amazon.
Toshiba HD-A3 can be had at Sears on Black Friday for $169 before noon.

Real HD looks a crapload better than upconverted DVD, definitely worth the $69 (equal to about 5-6 DVDs more than $100)

And the A3 makes an awesome upscaler for regular DVDs as well!
We're all in it together.
