Yes, I bought online from SolidSignal.com in Year 2013 Dec. My setting is 70 with Sony VPL-HW40ES. Improvement is not extremely obvious, but you can see the difference from "on" and "off" comparison. I had my Darbee tested by Darbee Vision, as mentioned in my earlier emails. They did not charge me for the replacement of the AC power adaptor, nor the return shipping charge. Solidsignal is Darbee authorized dealer,

Thank you all.


I saw in some post either in amazon reviews or here that someone noticed a lot of difference when using this and were gaming... does anyone of you had any experience with gaming console and using darbee and not using darbee to compare ?

I do a lot of gaming and this is one of the reasons I am thinking to get it..

TIA

This will probably sound odd to those who don't have a Darbee but it's more of a device you notice when it's not on than when it's on. It does the same thing it does for movies with games. I can run a PS3, Wii U, and PC through mine.

In my opinion, adding the Darbee 5000 to Sony 40ES is just adding sugar powder on top of a cream cake. The performance of the Sony is good enough. I have to boom up the Darbee to 70 setting to see the difference.
For gaming, the action is so far. You are too busy with your joy stick and don't have time to enjoy the contrast/color enhancement. If you have the money to spare, why not. It is good for movie viewing though.

70? Wow. That's pretty high. On my Epson 5030UB, even with its Super Resolution set to 1, I have the Darbee at 50. Any higher and I start getting artifacts. Most people in this thread set theirs between 30 and 55, generally. If you have to crank the Darbee to 70 to see any difference, then that suggests to me that the Sony 40ES isn't that sharp to begin with.

Again, it is just personal preference. 70 setting give me more details on wide scene and artifice on close up. Give or take. I am still testing and might go back btw 40 to 50 range later.

Arrived today, quick shipping. Have an Xbox one + Epson 3020 fine tuned for color and focus. Picture looks amazing on it's own but the Darby makes a nice difference. I've used the 3020's built in Supper Resolution which has some of the same effect but very minor in comparison. I can see textures with MUCH more detail and pop in game (tested with Destiny) that were barely noticeable before. Other biggest difference to me is it looks like the Claritin commercial where a "haze" is removed from the display when on.
