720p is better in that it doesn't require the excruciatingly slow pans and slow shutter speeds that 1080P24 does.
Slow shutter speeds result in a significant reduction in the resolution when there is any motion.
Keep in mind that with passive, you are not really cutting the vertical resolution in half if you consider that the effective resolution
has to be reduced from the original 1080 to much less in order to prevent artifacts like aliasing and moire patterns and to make it more compressible.
Thus in theory you might be reducing the effective resolution
from 650 to 540 not 1080 to 540.
I'm more then willing to accept the small reduction in vertical resolution to make my 3D watching a pleasure again.
I'm really looking forward to never hearing complaints about active shutter glasses again also.
