I'd say we get artifacts when engineers implement inadequate algorithms and/or implement them it on inadequate hardware.

I'm not sure what you mean by "un native playback" but I can see no reason why pulldown that is a propperly timed integer multple of the native frame rate should create judder i.e. 24fps at 96 or 120. Also if the problem is more than trivailly difficult at the current level of technology I would appreciate someone explaining to me why that is.[/quote]
Yes, the pull downs are nice but playing at the same speed as the source is recorded is always best.
What many people do not realize is that 24p is actually being displayed on our projectors at 30fps. It is the smoothest speed to display the 24hz material at on our projectors. Even though the projector says it is displaying at 23.9hz or whatever...
I don't know why...(other than after many opinions and hours of testing)...but this is what i found out after a long chat with the engineers at epson.
120hz is a nice number because it is a multiple of 24, 30, and 60 and i think it will be a great standard for the movie industry to start using. I can't wait.
Until then...enjoy 24p (30hz) or for all you lucky new 6500UB owners, frame interpolate if that is your cup of tea.
Post some good pics...please convince me to upgrade.
