I had issues, and I'm still using Reiser3 for my video storage.

On slow platforms, with a stressed out file system, Reiser may be 
CPU-limited on throughput. But you have to run VDR for a long time with 
disk almost full, and with lots of recordings coming and going to get 
that level of fragmentation. And I'm not convinced that other file 
systems would do better in these situations.

Beside that, Reiser3 works fine for me. No total freezes I know of.
