So just to make sure I'm understanding, the Vizio 700i-B3 is a 60hz panel, it uses 3:2 pulldown and there is no escaping this fact. It strobes the LED backlight 120 times per second, which somehow makes it 120hz effective, but overall it's just a gimmick and the tv is going to have a lot of juddering? I ask because I am replacing my 701i-A3 with one, and if it's going to look like garbage with juddering multiple times a second, I may just want to sell it and get something else.
Further research on another thread here says that it does 24 fps just fine, without 3:2 pulldown, but doesn't explain the how or details, and then another post says someone asked somewhere else and was told 24fps means the tv does 24fps now, and 3:2 pulldown was only an issue before tv's could take that sort of input and refresh at that rate. Can anyone confirm?
Also how do monitors compare to TV's in this sense, I know many monitors take multiple inputs as well, and back in the day of CRT's is actually had meaning, but are all monitors 60 or 120hz and just converting whatever input they get, or can they actually change to 24hz and display things correctly?
