Any one have experience with 24p playback plasmas?

I am getting a good deal on a plasma which is making me change HT upgrade priorities (was about to build a couple subs) but should, nonetheless be totally awesome.

I'm looking at 2 models:

The Panasonic PZ800U and the PZ85U. One of the major differences between the two is that the 800U has 24p playback which I've heard is good but have never experienced it. The price difference between the two sets is roughly 600 bucks. Is the 24p feature worth it? I currently don't own a blu-ray player but will eventually so the feature won't benefit me in the short run but I'd like some enthusiast opinions on using 24p.

I am also one who upgrades almost never so I will be using this set until it croaks.

Certainly not worth $600 all else equal, IMO. At best you lose some judder. At worst you have to deal with some sloppy processing that the set wraps up with the 24p capability.

I have experience with my Kuro Elite and 24 frames per second.
Would I have paid $600 less for the same tv without it...probably.
Is it very nice...certainly.
Although the Pio's seem to work better than the Panny's in this regard.

'@ 120Hz' is LCD only and they have enough motion issues to deal with to be worried about judder.
