I only played with the settings a bit, but the artifacts on gradient type surfaces were most apparent to me for artifacts.
What was once a smooth transition from one color to another would turn into a blocky mess as the detail clarity processing tried to come up with some lines / divisions to emphasize and enhance when there were not supposed to be any.
If you look at only the edges of things and areas where there really could be more detail to benefit the picture, you'll probably have a very high opinion of the upper settings on this feature.
If you look at areas where there really isn't any benefit to more sharpness (smooth skin tones, background colors, etc.), you'll probably notice the negative aspects of it.
