Based on his general comments, I think Jeff was initially intrigued by the Darbee. Then he began to experience some of the signal stability issues that a few of us encounter, and when that happened, he hit the eject button and took it out.
My HTS is nowhere near the reference level HTS he has. I use an Epson 6020 and throw at a 110" screen. Jeff uses a much more sophisticated pj and throws at a much smaller screen.
Since my image is much softer than what he gets, so the Darblet is probably more of a "must have" in my HTS than it ever could be in his. But given his insanely acute eye, it would have been fun to have him observe what the Darblet does in my room and hear him react to that.
I'm not hating on the 6020. I think it's terrific at its price point. Jeff did do. (Check out his blog comments.) I just think someone with an HTS like mine may have a bigger window of opportunity for the Darblet than somebody with an HTS like Jeff's.
That may be an interesting question. There's been a bunch of posting in this thread along the lines of "the better the source, the more the Darblet can do." I wonder if the reverse is generally true in terms of native display sharpness?
