My only difference with his experience is my video source. It's a Tivo HD and I'm using it only for Over-the-Air broadcasts here in the S.F. area. Least compression I know of (had both DirecTV and Comcast and these were much less quality, likely due to their compression). So, that's where I take DarbeeDr's guidance and use Full Pop for quality broadcasts like last evenings S.F. Giant's game in L.A. (sorry Dodgers).
Hello Sjschaff & rboster,
First, let me say that I have always had the greatest of appreciation for Kris' reviews and impressions of AV gear for as long as I have been reading HT mag
. Perhaps "exaggeration" was the wrong word to use. However, the only reason I was and still am calling his review into question, was because of the comments that some made here in direct response to that review. That is, they are not having the same POSITIVE experience, not even close, as he did or like you guys are having.
I know sometimes we have to make a call on this and it is a subjective thing.....however like I mentioned before, its not like I can walk into my local AV store and see the Darbee in action. I would love to test this out and see if I too can experience the positive things that others here have said. Believe me after reading Kris' review I am itching to get my hands on one of these. I just read that AVS has some units in stock.
PS. Does anyone know if there is a full money back return policy if your order this unit?Edited by hidefpaul - 8/24/12 at 9:24am
