The bottom line is that if you don't notice it, or don't mind it, more power to you. But many people do and that's why they don't use it. It's no different than using AA, AF, a faster hz monitor, or any number of other settings to make your game play experience more enjoyable.
Huh. I don't notice, even in BF3. I must getting old...
