I'm looking into getting a new PC monitor primarily for watching blu-ray movies (and gaming) and need some specific advice.
I've noticed that fast-moving scenes or camera pans in blu-ray movies are really juddery/non-smooth and uncomfortable for me to watch personally on my current 60hz monitor. Thus is due to 3:2 pulldown I believe.
Essentially what happens is, when I play 1080p/24 (blu-ray) content on my current 24" 60hz LCD monitor, my graphcs card automatically (AMD R9 270) applies 3:2 pulldown to the 24fps framerate to match the 60hz refresh rate of my monitor. This uneven frame buffering causes this juddery effect and is especially apparent in fast-moving scenes (Fast and Furious movies being good examples).
Now, if I was to buy a 120hz 1080p monitor, as 120hz is a direct multiple of 24hz, would I get an even 5:1 playback on 24p movies? As in, 5 frames repeated per frame per second? Would this alleviate my above problem?
If anybody with 120hz monitors that occasionally/regularly watch blu-rays could chime in I'd be grateful. I'm looking for confirmation that this actually works in practice.
