I use the Theater at 60hz on a Panasonic AE4000 and at 120hz on an Acer H5360. In spite of the slanted article, motion is fluid on both displays. At 60hz, yes there is some flicker but mainly perceptible in brighter scenes. I've minimized it with careful tuning using RF glasses. The Panasonic proj. uses LCD panels, properly tuned, no ghosting.
Flicker is a subjective argument that varies among individuals but I was fine with it on the Panasonic. Using the Theater at 120hz on the Acer and things are indeed outstanding. At worst there is some color shift because of the various shades shutter glasses are coated. Even tuning the RF transmitter can shift it to a more natural tone if one is patient.
There is a dedicated thread on this forum regarding the VIP3D/3DNow Theater and most of them don't feel like that writer. I never regretted being an earlier adopter of the product last year.
Personally I would rather watch 3D on a projection system over any other video display as it is more immersive than trying to narrow one's visual perception into a smaller area.
The Theater product was never about going against a new 3D video display but opened a sector to those who were happy with what they already owned. Projector owners that were previously non-3D capable especially appreciate that results, add to that side-by-side and top2bottom formats and it made things even better.
Keep in mind there are writers and there are real users. Of course if your goal is to buy "new" then that is not a bad decision either.
