After 232 pages (almost 7,000 posts), what can we add to the Darbee reviews?
I feel something that needs
to be emphasized is that when I had problems getting the device to work consistently, the actual
company CS was very responsive and helpful. I emailed them and they immediately responded with solutions. To me
, this is a significant point.
From all the feedback, it should be obvious by now that the processing effect is not for everyone. INMO, it's most dramatic on front projector applications with large (100"+) screens. Also, the "bang for the buck" factor is accentuated when you have thousands of dollars in a big screen HT. What's another $300? If you are watching on a 32" LCD TV, then the Darbee is half the cost of the display...
Not much has been said about HD video. Try watching live HD sports with it on. The Masters Golf was beautiful with the vibrant spring foliage.
For people balking at the $300 price, Solid Signal has them on sale or used for significantly less. Just email them. They are also good at CS (ask for "Moose").
+1 on David's suggestion to watch for a week with it on. Try as much varied content and as many settings as possible. Then remove it from the chain ans "see" what you think. (a little AVS humor).
