Yes, it's a bit surprising this cable actually improves 4K upscaling even more so than just the new Evo Kit by itself, but it does.
The biggest problem with those cables is they are too wide so they can make certain setups difficult by not allowing another HDMI cable to be plugged in next to them, they require a USB port to power them (taking up USB ports is inconvenient), they will only ever be able to handle HDMI 1.4 standard, so on and so forth. Plus the TV does a better job of up-scaling. If you say it is sharper I have to believe you but it is a lot to spend for something the TV is going to do anyway. Worth noting, several of the reviews on Amazon have it as not providing any difference whatsoever. YMMV.
