I just ordered a Darblet today to try out. I'll have it by Tuesday and can probably give impressions on Wednesday since I have that day off and can play around with it.

Yes, I have darbee built into my Oppo. I love what it does with the w1070 for most movies. Sometimes I like to turn it up but some movies require it down. But overall very pleased with it.

This is very interesting to me but I wonder if with HTPC one is not able to achieve the same or better although with a lot more tweaking etc. I run an HTPC so perhaps this is not for me but more for people with regular Bluray Players. Still, I am a sucker for this type of devices

Where do you keep your settings and what works best for different situations?

I'm wondering when I get it if I'll figure out a "set-and-forget" setting of 35-40 or if I'll constantly need be to playing with it. Personally I'd prefer a "set-and-forget," but I'm sure I'll constantly play with it at the beginning.

90% of the time I keep it on high def 50%. If you get a film with heavy grain I will lower it.

As far as I know there is nothing you can tweak to have the same effect of darbee. It is not a sharpness or edge tweak which is a no no in the video world.

It adjusts the contrast, luminance and chrominance in a video signal to make the image appear sharper and more detailed.

I know I almost felt bad using gaming mode b/c I noticed everyone used HD haha, but to me, gaming introduced an improvement in perceived contrast (without completely killing shadow detail) on a projector which pretty much only lacks in that department (imo); so I took that slight improvement in contrast and lived with the tiny increase in artifacts, which I really only notice in text. Full pop really destroyed shadow detail so I never considered that, like most other people likely, although sometimes it's fun to put that mode on during animated flicks (Toy Story etc.).

I will have to see tonight. We are watching Gardians of the Galaxy 3D. We watched the new ninja turtles last night in 3D and surprisingly it was pretty good.
