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.

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.

Have you viewed the DarbeeVision 4K Gallery Samples at http://darbeevision.com/4k-samples , on your 4K set from USB or browser? If so, what is your opinion of the results?

No question when having the Darby installed, you can show improved image quality. By either the demo modes or simply turning the effect on or off. But I've been wondering.... then my son last night asked me the same question.
Does the image without the Darblett installed in the chain, look identical with it installed and the processing off??? In other words, is the Darblett effecting the image the image even when turned off.
Imagine if it does. Then of coarse it would be easy to show through the demo modes that the Darby processing improves the image. Kind of a smoke and mirrors deal.
Kind of impossible to see a side by side comparison of a "direct source to display" image compared to the image of a "source to Darblett(processing off) to display".
Anyone wonder if Darby slightly degrades the image so it can show how their processing improves it? Their marketing uses the "removing the veil" quote in their ads. Maybe they also "ADD" the veil?!?!?!
Certainly can't imaging a company getting away with something like that. But then again, who would take the time to test it to see? Guess you could use two identical displays. One source being split. Straight to display 1, then to the Darblett to display 2.
Would love to know.

Two questions, please:

1) Is the current Darblet DVP-5000 the same one they've been selling since the start, or have their been newer, improved versions?

2) Is the entire suite of Darblet capability present in the Oppo 103-D? Anything missing?

To see for yourself you need: A Darblet, two HDMI switches, and HDMI cables. Connect one switch's input to source. Connect second switch's output to set. Connect switches with cable on one position and Darblet on the other. Test away!

Caution: Inserting or removing HDMI cables from equipment that is powered on could damage one of more of the connected devices.
