Bought this DVD waaay back when it came out and highly recommend it. The demos look great on it even though the playback rate is only 24Hz. The producers of it did an excellent job of converting the 60Hz raw video to the 24Hz standard by interlacing frames in a certain way, and it works brilliantly. Can't tell that the demo isn't running in its original framerate. Also there's extras such as commentaries from the demomakers providing some interesting tidbits about their creation. Worth listening to. This thing was worth paying for, so now that its free there's no reason to not get it.

You can also download both the PAL and NTSC versions, so the NTSC one will be running at 30fps, which might be preferred to get a truer framerate. Although at the expense of screen resolution and colour accuracy.
