Also, I live in the desert (Las Vegas) so I try to minimize heat generation as much as possible with my components. As a result, I turn off the Darblet (actuallly cut power to the power strip) after every viewing session. I've never had the customized values reset as a result.
In short, at this point, I don't think it's foolhardy to jump in if you have the interest. The Darblet unit seems pretty solid to me.
boblinds: Thanks for your vote of confidence.
We do a pretty comprehensive set of tests on each and every unit. Some are done by the factory before delivery to us and many others are done by us, prior to packaging. We heat stress the units, exercise the physical buttons on the unit and remote, pass video for several tests, exercise the entire menu controls, ID the S/N and SW/FW version to be sure it is the latest, all with a paired power supply and remote through the entire process.
For the Darblet pre-ship process, I am sure we don't exercise the buttons on the remote and software like the customer does in the first week of use, however we have many perfectly healthy units in the lab that have seen more fiddling than any unit in the field will ever see in its lifetime.
