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!
