Yes. I think they missed their window of opportunity.

With the DVDO EDGE available for pre-order in the same price range, this unit is gonna be a tough sell.

I wouldn't be surprised if DVDO EDGE ends up coming out 1st with the latest delay. It seems the HQV Gefen unit is the new Geforce FX 5800 Ultra.

Wow, this thread is getting way more posts than it deserves...

Pioneer broke my heart.
Denon broke my wallet.
Oppo broke my thinking.

I think it's turning into an Edge thread... kinda the way so may threads in the Blu-ray players area turn into PS3 threads.

This thing has died in my eyes. I emailed Gefen and now they are saying January 2009 or until further notice. It is a shame bcause Reon/Realta based solutions are generally pretty good. They probably can not get around the heat issues that have been experienced with other products based on these chips. I am glad I ordered the DVDO Edge!

totally sad, imo. why make hype about a product and then wait a year to release it? hype is what sells. hopefully the realta won't be updated to something better before they release this thing. that will be a shame.

If the realta implementation is a decent one I would still consider this product. I ordered the DVDO edge for my main Pioneer for HD/SD picure improvement. I really like the realta products, however, they are statispheric in price. $699 for a decent video processor is a steal. I am so disappointed at this juncture....Hello Gefen.

Did you guys notice that the price has gone up to $899.00 which is somewhat baffling considering it is late to the market & has only 2 HDMI inputs. I don't know who they are trying to compete with. At this rate DVDO Edge is becoming a better value.
