Best Plasma TV Modes for Rendering Movies?
Some higher end plasma TVís offer 48 Hz and/or 96 Hz refreshrates for rendering 24 frame/sec movies with minimal video processing. Are there visible differences between 48 and96 Hz refresh rates, and if so what are they? Are they clearly better than 60 Hz?

Since those are all multiples of 24, you shouldn't have any issues. My favorite plasmas are from Panasonic.David Vaughn

The 48Hz mode, at least on Panasonic plasmas, produces very obvious flicker that is quite distracting. I don't recommend it. The 96Hz mode works well, though.
Are these modes clearly better than 60Hz? At least with 3D content, the 96Hz mode in a plasma produces a lot less crosstalk. With 2D, I guess it depends on how bothered you are by the juddery look of film sources on a TV. I personally am not bothered by judder, and I think you really have to look hard at a source to see the difference between 24fps film shown at 60Hz and 96Hz. I'm sure others will disagree.--

Most film projectors show each frame three times (effectively 72Hz). The 3 bladed shutter came about to help with the flicker from the 2 bladers that were first introduced "back in the day". (effectively 48Hz).
