I believe the idea behind them is that they actually are supposed to be not create 3x the Spark, but rather since they don't have a piece of metal directly above the spark, the explosion can burn more completely because it can go directly upwards instead of wrapping around that metal.
Not sure how much fact there is to that, but they were recently up at my Alma Mater (Michigan Technological University) and I believe that was the story line they gave.
Now as far as what other people said, I'd agree. If your only putting in E3 plugs, your probably not going to see much. I put them in my 99 and it ran just as well as when they weren't in there. Didn't see any gains or losses really. Maybe a slight gain if I remember right, but that was probably more due to getting new plugs after 100k.
If your going to do the whole system, I'd probably rock them. They seem to be much more based in fact that a lot of car companies and the fact they are willing to go to scientific schools like my college and try and back up there claims makes me think they at least partially know what they are talking about.
A quick article for your reference.
