1080i vs 720p

I have a 5 year old set that can support up to 1080i. I have been keeping it set at 720p but I'm wondering if 1080i looks better. Which should I set it at?

What set? And what do you mean by "keeping it set at", I'm guessing you mean in a cable/sat box?

Whichever is the "native resolution" of the TV. That is the best option, in my opinion.
I had an old Toshiba tube HDTV that allowed me to choose between 1080i or 540p. It would accept 720p signals, but it would just convert it to one of the two options I had.

I miss the black levels I got with that TV.

1080i is way better then 720p. You can really see the difference.

some people may be more sensitive to interlacing than others, same as how some people are more sensitive (or not at all) to 3D. even if it's not something medical due to how the eye works, some effects are easier to see for some people than others, like chroma fringing and contrast boosting.
