Well folks, I'm sad to say this but I just packed up my Darbee and will be returning it. Ultimately, the subtle difference just wasn't worth it to me. I think I just expected too much. As I've mentioned before, I was impressed with the difference it made with animated movies. But when it came to live-action, I was not impressed. Since I watch mainly live-action BR's, I decided to return it. Yes, I tried multiple settings and movies, but it just wasn't worth it to me. On top of that, what little difference I can see with live-action, it seemed like most of it could only be noticed if I paused the picture. If I let the movie play, I couldn't really tell any difference since there was movement and action on the screen. I didn't think it was worth it to only notice differences with paused, still, or close-up images.
If live-action movies would have benefited as much as animated movies did, then I probably would have kept the Darbee. This is the same with Directv viewing. I was disappointed with what the Darbee could do, or not do, with satellite programs. I think one of the reasons the subtle difference wasn't worth it to me is because I have a Panny 65GT50, which already produces an excellent picture. Therefore the Darbee only added a minute amount of improvement to the picture. That minute difference just wasn't worth it. I guess I am just happy enough with the GT's original performance. But thanks for everyone's advice, I'm glad I was able to try the Darbee. I also have a suspicion that the Darbee benefits projectors much more than my set. I guess I'll have to get the Darbee again if I ever get a projector.
BTW, I ran across an interview
with Paul Darbee at the 50:00 minute mark, he hints at a new/updated device, perhaps for cheaper. The interview is from the beginning of November so he may have changed his mind. I bring this up because I've read people asking about an updated Darbee. Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone!
