I will assume that the mCable's upconversion is adequate. I wasn't interested in that part of it. Honestly, upscaling isn't particularly difficult these days, especially given that the mCable only does the scaling and won't perform any deinterlacing (the hard part of the process) at all.
Many A/V receivers will do the same upconversion now.
Thanks for the clarification.
FWIW, rarely have I seen a product with more polarized online reviews...
After testing with multiple sources on a 1080p plasma and a 1080p DLP PJ, my findings are similar to Josh's. That is, on pristine sources, there is some benefit to the mCable. The combination of Darbee and mCable is a mixed bag as well. Where the waters become murky is on SD source material. The Darbee by itself seems like the choice for these.
As far as bang for the buck, for <$30 it seems like a reasonable investment, if you watch high quality HD sources. For $130...
Bottom line is that I've chosen to leave the mCable in place for now on all our displays (Josh and I differ on this).
Someone with access to a 4K display could chime in to update this thread. Otherwise, it's time to ride into the sunset.
