Throw in a dash of low (relative to other products), and the claim that it pretty much is awesome, and you can see why someone would start as a non-believer. That was me, but I also mention that the more I read, the more I am intrigued but this product. Keeping in mind that people have had them for what, about an average of a week. Some a towards 2 weeks, many less than that.
I've seen a number of products come out over the years, as we all have, that promise to deliver something so amazing, that people can't resist buying, just to have great perceived results initially, and then over time to stop using it. Heck, you hear of people doing that with audio processing with things like Audyssey. While some people absolutely love it, there are others that have reported that at first they liked it, but over time found that they actually preferred to not have the "correction" or "enhancement" turned on. That is my fear. That this does something that makes the picture a little too artificial. Sure, it can be dialed down, but then is the difference worth it? Some (most/all) say yes.
The point of my post was to reflect some level of outsider skepticism that I've picked up on a little here, but read more about elsewhere. I'm not the only one, and I am NOT saying that the product is bogus, but hopefully you can see the skepticism of a plug and plug box of awesomeness for $250.
