Perhaps your "persistence of vision" isn't as "persistent" as we common Joe's and you're getting distracted by judder and smearing?
Have you sampled the 72 Hz-capable Pioneer Elites (running at 72 Hz, natch)?
Please folks, stop doubting the existence of this issue, I have previously explained that it has to do with the different phosphor-decay rates. You can see this effect on some CRTs as well, and yes it is similar to the rainbow effect on DLP, but it is yellowish-green in color, not a full RGB color separation rainbow.
It is not in the source, it is not judder or anything like that. If you pause a high-contrast black and white image, and then dash your eyes around, you will be most likely to see this artifact. The paused image is case in point that this is a temporal artifact of the display, and not related whatsoever to the source content.
