24p does make a big diffrence, but only if you have the technology to play it. you need a tv that is capable to play 72hrz like the pionner elite's. otherwise 24p is useless.

24p refers to a video format that operates at a true 24 frames per second.

Why would I want to go slower? Is there some "effect" you are after?
