Count me as one of those "extremely happy" Darbee users ... :)

I also leave mine set to HD 50.

If they are less to produce flat, and most people seem to prefer flat, why on Earth are they making them curved in the first place?

The Sharp has less blooming and, in my opinion, a slightly better overall picture. The Sony is an excellent set, though. If I was in your shoes, I'd probably go with the Sony because of the extra 5...

I finally had a chance to view this set at Best Buy yesterday. Very impressive picture! Other than perhaps a little more blooming, I think the overall picture is better than my Sharp Elite.

Some early builds of the set won't recognize the discrete "ON" command. I don't think this affects very many sets, but if you are having issues, I created a workaround:

The IR would make it a no go for me. My kids will very often leave the TiVo paused on the same screen for hours. My Kuro actually bounces back from this quite nicely, but it sounds like an OLED would...

That's very similar to my setup. Oppo 103 -> Denon 3313CI -> Darbee -> Sharp 70" Elite. :)

I wasn't necessarily comparing the price of the Darbee to other processors. I was simply pointing out that it's kind of silly to include such a crappy remote with a device that costs $300. It's not...

Are you sure it was the local dimming that caused this? Did you turn local dimming off to see if the problem went away?

Considering how much they charge for the Darbee, there is no excuse for them to bundle it with such a crappy remote.

I programmed the remote into my universal remote the day I got it, so I've never really used the remote that came with the Darbee.

I wonder why some units reset frequently, and others don't. Is it a power supply issue? Mine has reset only once in the year that I've owned it.

I own a 70" Elite, 55" XBR8 and 60" Elite KURO. Overall, I would rank the Elite the best, followed by the KURO, and then the Sony. I'm very curious to know how the 950B stacks up against these. Can...
