My last wedding I used 3x 600EX-RT's and the ST-E3-RT for a very large reception hall and it worked flawlessly for me, not a single failed flash. Flashes were approx 30-40m (90-120ft) apart in a kind of triangle setup. I was using 580s before and triggers, and the ability to adjust the remote 600's to lighting changes (they kept dimming and un-dimming lights) directly from the ST-E3-RT was such a nice and quick thing as I wasn't bothering anyone by moving around fiddling with the remote flashes.

That said, the combination of flash-gear needed (at least a ST-E3-RT and a 600RT) isn't exactly cheap, but for me it was worth the upgrade, and lately I've taken to hiding flashes in more fun and strange places than before just because I know they'll fire pretty much no matter what.

Sold all 580s plus PW and bought 600s system to use for wedding. Loving the system. It has not failed once.

I've been moving from strobes to the 600s lately. They work great - no problems, a lot easier/lighter than strobes, and I like the flexibility. The only downside is power/recycle times compared to strobes, but it hasn't been much of an issue.
