For those on the fence about the Darblet, I just want to share my experience. I've been using the Darblet with my HD33 since September 2012, and just recently starting have issues with the device (no video was being displayed). I worked with the DarbeeVision team to triage the issue, but unfortunately we couldn't resolve the issue with our troubleshooting. Although my device was well out of warranty, the team had me ship them the unit for replacement. I'm back up and running again and couldn't be happier with the service they provided without any obligation. It's a great little device, and you can be assured the team at DarbeeVision will stand behind their products.

Darbee works by enhancing the visibility of detail present in the source. It cannot add detail that wasn't already there. The better and more detailed the source, the more the Darbee can do. A low-quality source like DVD doesn't have a lot of detail to start, so the Darbee has less to work with.

VERY good to hear! I'm on the fence right now and this might help push me off. Thanks for posting.

It's been a while since I posted here.
My Darbee darblet gave new life to my Sony VW60 two years ago, so much that I'm just sitting on the fence till this 4k stuff (and other improvements) becomes under $5k, like 2016-late.

If you are like me with a pretty decent PJ, but want some more image "PQ", get one.

Both of my Darblets have been on for close to two years now. They have both been working great.

Going to purchase the LG 65 4K Oled when it comes out.I plan on using set to mostly view upconverted DVD and Blu Ray movies.Will I be able to use my Darbee with this set since i love what it does to my upconverted dvds on my Samsung 8500 LED?

So should I assume upconverted content to a 4K screen will work with a Darbee but native 4K content will not?

Darblet won't handle 4K. If the upconversion occurs downstream of the Darblet, e.g., in the display itself, it will be fine.

That said, the Darblet added nothing to my Sony VPL-VW600ES projector's gorgeous 4K upconversion. I removed the Darblet from that system and put it on a secondary TV (an older Sharp LCD) which needed more help.

So if I were using an oppo 83 to send dvds to a 4K screen where Darbee was connected after my signal from oppo traveled through my Yamaha receiver (without receiver upconversion) to my Darbee and then to my screen what changes should I make in my Oppo or receiver settings to be able to get my darbee to work?Perhaps I dont need a darbee with 4K screen upconversion?
I just have a huge collection of dvd concerts and most will never see a 4K release(Most never got a Blu-ray release)Last thing I want to do is degrade my PQ on these using a 4K screen.My darbee positioned in manner I stated gave a large boost to pq on my Samsung 55 inch 8500 LED but its time to move toward new technology with a larger screen but only if pq at least stays same on my dvd collection.

As you describe it you need no changes: you have 1080p from the OPPO and the receiver is just passing that through, right? Image looks good as is.

The Darbee does its work and the 4k display will scale the incoming 1080p to its native resolution. We would hope it does a good job at that, since it is the most common case in this era when 4k input is rare, but definitely read reviews and test reports.

Thanks Bill.Cant wait to read some user reports on this 4K Oled when it comes out connected to a darbee.Wonder if darbee will release a dedicated 4K unit and if it is even needed?
