We have the Sharp 15" one. As I said, it works ok as long as you stay in the
sweet spot, but gives me a nasty headache (which the glasses do not). We haven't
tried any of the high-refresh LCD's yet. We still use CRT's for that at the
moment.  We're about to try a homebrew polarized glasses solution.  We do
actually have a (800x600) high refresh projector for use with the shutter
glasses which works well.
