Well, that's your opinion. The LARGE majority of users here probably wouldn't share that opinion.
Not sure what you mean by "...take the time to tweak and test a few different settings."
The large majority here are inserting their darbee, turning it on, and tweeking the settings to their taste. The darbee was designed to be adjustable/tweeked. Now, if you're talking about issues with hdmi/handshaking? That's something that just about ALL hdmi devices have in 'some' instances/combinations. From AVR's, switchers, splitters, projectors, etc. It's the bane of the hdmi protocol.
I've gone through 2 monoprice switchers and 2 monoprice splitters. The switcher (which has 2 hdmi outs) had a strange problem in which my TV and PJ would only work on out 1 and 2, in that order. Switch 'em around, TV on #2 and PJ on #1 and only the TV would work. Both outs on the switcher should of course be identical. Monoprice and their excellent CS sent me out another 4x2 switcher pronto (emailed a free ship label for the bad unit) and the 2nd switcher worked perfectly, for a good 2 years now.
When I got the darbee I wanted to use it on the PJ and the LCD/LED TV, so I got a hdmi splitter from monoprice, put the darbee on the one out of the 4x2 switcher, then the 1x2 splitter on the darbee out > to the PJ/TV. It worked perfectly....for exactly 1 day. Monoprice again to the rescue, they ship me another splitter, emailed a free ship label for the defective one. The new splitter works perfectly for about 2 weeks now.
