Is anyone here using a Darbee(the Darblet) processor? I'm getting ready to order one based on it's highly touted review by Kris Deering of Home Theater Magazine.

The slide bar shows an impressive increase in PQ.

Rizz, I bought and used one. It does give the image some pop (mine was 40% and HD mode), but some are going to disagree with the use.

What I recommend to anyone is buy it and try it, they are in such demand you can sell it on ebay and just about get all your money back.

I sold mine because while I could see the benefit, I did not prefer the effect overall. It does do some neat sharpening, and it allows you to compare with it on and off easily.

Looks great Rizz. Please post and let us know how it works for you - I am interested in this as well.

I posted this last year, and no one picked up on it. IT is really good in projector use. For reg. displays it will add pop, more so on plasma

I had something similar about 8 years ago. All it did was edge enhancement contrast boost.

No, this new technology is quite effective, read the HTM review.

I'm still researching, I've bought a few things (miracle products) That were a great disappointment and loss of $$$, so I'm in no rush.
