I barely use the 3D on my 6187s TV so I am not sure it is worth it to upgrade my projector, but with a projector and a 120" screen that should make 3D look incredible.
Generally 60hz flicker tolerance is subjective and also influenced by other light sources entering the viewing area or more noticeably in bright scenes. Some individuals may just be easily annoyed with it and have no tolerance level. Whether you or your household would be affected similarly cannot be predicted. It can be mitigated to a certain degree by balancing the tuning adjustments for the RF glasses at the emitter and dropping the brightness levels some at the projector. 60hz 3D does pop with active RF 3D glasses and that may overcome any objection to what degree of flicker remains. Keep in mind most vendors will not accept glasses for refund just because you might not like flicker, they will exchange if they are defective, they cannot be sold again because of hygiene use and scratches.
As far as worth, it was worth more at the time for me when it cost more than $250 as an early adopter as it gave three other units 3D capability that they didn't have one of them also a 60hz projector.
