I'm using a Seiki SU4KC1 U-Vision Upscaling HDMI Cable, and from the screen shots I've seen of the Darbee effects, I'm getting a great deal of the benefits of Darbee processing, but for much less cost currently, from the real-time processing chip in the cable end (a Marseilles VTV-1222, powered by a branch-off USB connector). I'd suppose that in no way is the Seiki cable equal to the Darbee, but the Seiki cable does seem to sharpen the image without objectionable artifacts, as well as reduce video noise, improve contrast, and color range and saturation; on-screen text looks much smoother too, with less jagged edges. I like the image I'm getting with the Seiki HDMI cable better than without a straight also high-quality, but non-processing HDMI cable. Has anyone directly compared a Darbee with a Seiki U-Vision cable? The two seem to have the same objectives in the output image. I'm using the Seiki HDMi cable from a Yamaha HDMI receiver's output to display screen, to process an HDTV tuner (a HomeWorx 150PVR), a Panasonic BDT-210 blu-ray player, and a WDTV media player to a Samsung 1080P LED TV, and a second Seiki SU4KC1 to an LG PA70G LED projector from another Yamaha receiver with the same components connected, in a home theater room.

Picked up a Darbee Cobalt from the manufacturer on sale. (no need for 3d). First impressions are that this is the best money I've spent recently on my media room.
Projecting with a JVC HD250 and it really sharpens the picture up. I was looking to possibly upgrade my projector but I think I can now wait a year or two and see what comes then. If you are sitting on the fence, jump off and get one.

I am amazed at what this did on FURY.

darbee dvdo combined;

I could go on about all the experments I have done and all the tv's I have along with supported appliances, suffice to say to get 1080P or i at its best with any of my sets, I have found these two pair up beautifully.

As far as costs, with these processors, one can purchase a lower cost set or sets and receive very acceptable eye candy letting this pair process imho.

I recently added a 4k set and that's a whole nother animal. At this time until sources improve, the blu ray disks offer 2160 pixels just using the tv's processing power.
