Yes - Samsung lists "3D Capable" as one of their "bullets" for their 120 Hz DLP RPTV's. The issue has become that there are so few RPTV CEM's left. Mits and Sammy and a few others.
When you say "motion" - are you identifing that with the 120 HZ spec?
The way 3D is supposed to work (using a real 3D encoded BD) is DS 1080 with each stream at 60Hz - one for each eye.
Almost like a dual encode with each the proper distance apart which sync's with the glasses.
Mit's said that they can take current 2D movies and make them into 3D but I heard . . . as usual . . . it was not that impressive.
DS1080 on a 120Hz HDTV would look like what you saw at the theater. No new BD player is required - just an HDTV that can display 3D and the content to go with it.
Just remember you need more light output for 3D than you need for 2D. That is why all IMAX 3D theaters use a silver screen instead of a white screen.
