Default How does 1080i content look on the Sony BDP-S350?

I have this player, but have not watched a 1080i Blu-Ray yet. The review says the following:

The first test is to determine the BDP-S350s ability to properly deinterlace 1080i HD content. Most movies are digitally transferred from film at 1080p/24Hz; however, many music concerts and scripted TV series appearing on Blu-ray are recorded and mastered at 1080i/30 Hz. The i stands for interlaced and alternately outputs 540 odd and even lines of resolution every 1/60 of a second. When set to 1080p/60 a Blu-ray player should combine the odd and even lines into a complete 1080 line image every 1/60 of a second. The BDP-S350 cant do this and simply doubles the number of scan lines with the same 540 lines of information, thereby displaying only 50% of the detail within the recording.

The article does state that most 2008 HDTV's properly deinterlace 1080i, so that is an option when, or if, I can get a new TV. I have a 720p JVC right now.
