Anyone have or used this device? I believe its supposed to be some kinda video processor built into an HDMI cable to further enhance picture quality. Also seems expensive at around $250 :eek:

Any thoughts or comments.

I tried it, gave my tv 10,080p res :rolleyes: I was watching the superbowl with the belkin and almost crapped in my pants when one of the linebacker almost came out of the tv. He caught himself on the coffee table and stayed on the field. :bowdown: Best picture of all time. lol

This article shares what they saw:

"As demonstrated, the processing improved picture quality by noticeably boosting contrast, and also appeared to make image edges look crisper. (The circuitry does not perform noise reduction.)"

Is it recommended for a particular type of HDTV? Mine is DLP.

According to Belkin's site...no it doesn't matter.

I actually tried it and sent it back . On my display it gave everything kind of a covered with black ink outline look. Now I have Samsung with DNle processing so maybe it was too much of a good thing.
I can see on certain displays people may find it useful and pleasing , it just did not work out for me. So if you can try it with a money back guarantee , you may like the effect.

I was being sarcastic, save your money or buy a better tv with that extra 200-300 dollars.
