Solid Signal has the Darbee Darblet on sale for $230 shipped today only.

http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=DARBLET

You can also get the Darbee Cobalt for $220 shipped if you want ... but for $10 difference, I'm not sure why you would.

Damn I wish I could buy this now but have to buy gifts already splurge on myself with the BenQ w1080st and Xbox One.

Hope this is still around in January deals like this so I can get it and hopefully see an improvement on the already good BenQ picture.

Xbox Live Gamertag: FELONY 301

PSN ID: FELONY--301

No problem adding people...

It is essentially a video processor that enhances image quality. Is it just for projectors? No. As long as you can use HDMI with your display device this should work. That said, the larger the image, the more noticeable the Darbee looks. So seating distance to screen size is really the question you should ask yourself in terms of cost vs performance. I love my Darblet and use it on my 125" screen with my projector but I have tried it out on my 50" LED HDTV and it definitely worked.

Thanks for the info... I was doing some reading, but still didn't find my questions answered...Grabbed one.. We'll see how the 62" Sammy DLP likes it... ;c)
I'd imagine receiver hdmi out would be the spot? Any issues with audio going out of synch due to processing?

I got one of those in October and it came without a power supply. Contacted both Darbee and Solid signal and they both kept punting the ball back and forth so I gave up and just bought one. Customer service at both those places sucked for me. At least the results were good after all the hassle.

Check Solid Signal. They had it advertised yesterday for $224.95. Not sure if the sale was one-day or all week.

If you're patient, I'd suggest signing up for their daily email blasts. Seems as if the Darblet is offered every couple of weeks or so around that ~ $230 price point.

EDIT: Nevermind -- the $225 deal still seems to be live. Linky
