I've got the urge to upgrade however the darbee darblet gave me enough life to hold on till 4k/other PJ technology matures more, 2016/2017.

Probably get another few years out of this unit, God willing. At this point I will wait to see how 4k turns out over the next few years.
I have a Mitsubishi HC6500 since 2010 and I also was itchin' to upgrade but the magic Darbee Darblet has scatched that itch, at least until entry level 4K is around.
