    MARK -- east brunswick, NJ   11/2/2013
    Excellent product. Amazing improvement to old 1080i Plasma TV. Gave it a few more years of life.
    Timmcd1 -- atlanta, GA   7/31/2013
    Given the significant cost of the Darbee, be aware that it carries only 6 month warranty by the manufacturer . My unit failed shortly thereafter and the manufacturer hasn't responded to my attempts to secure out-of-warranty service. I now own what amounts to a $350. menu generator. Beware.
    BRADLEY SCOTT -- glen allen, VA   7/1/2013
    I was skeptical when I first plugged it in, but as soon as I put it into the side by side mode - the difference was impressive
    DOUGLAS -- tarpon springs, FL   6/24/2013
    Exceeded my expectations! Amazing what this device has done with the picture on my Samsung plasma tv, with cable hd box. Improvement is noticed by everyone and what I had before was impressive.
    RITCHIE -- huntington, WV   6/7/2013
    I would not buy again. It's good enough to keep and not disappointing enough to send back. I already had a led tv with an excellent picture, which it improves a little.
    JAMES -- arnold, MO   3/1/2013
    Overall, I am pleased with the device. The big factor is that it only enhances the signal it receives. If you send it a "low quality" signal then you notice just how low quality that signal is. If you send it a Blu Ray signal it is amazing.
    STEVEN -- boronia, MELBOURNE, Australia   1/30/2013
    It does what it says! I found with my Sidewinder 3 media player my black turned to grey, makes HD pay TV look better, for the price it's ok value for a little gain in picture quality.
    RICHARD -- liberty lake, WA   1/11/2013
    After reading the positive reviews I just had to try this unit out. I didn't think it could possibly improve the picture quality of Blu ray that much, but this thing delivers. It does everything it claims. Very happy with the product and the service from Smarthome. Richard S
    ISAIAS -- new carlisle, OH   1/10/2013
    Excellent product FAST SHIPPING!!! Great service...AAAA++++
    GERALD -- everett, WA   1/7/2013
    I love the Darbee, great product that really works.
    CALEB -- kowloon, XX   11/15/2012
    That's really a great product that enhances the viewing experience much more than expected by double.
    ARIEF -- happy valley, Australia   10/22/2012
    Great service all the way the other side of the world (I ordered from Australia). The product itself is worth every penny. Makes the overall picture quite clear with increased perceived depth. It's really amazing!!
    TIMOTHY -- kowloon, Hong Kong   10/22/2012

    ZELIG -- omer, Israel   10/21/2012
    Very good service & fast shipping.
    PHIL -- port sanilac, MI   10/21/2012
    This product works as advertised, it is amazing how well it works! Video images are vivid and theatrical. Smarthome sent my order promptly, no problems at all.
    DANNY -- perth, XX   10/21/2012
    very happy item as described.
    KEN -- auburn, MI   10/21/2012
    This is the 2nd Darblet that I've purchased and I'm pleased with the results. Does everything as advertised. I wish the connections were in the back instead of at the sides.
    MARK -- granger, IN   9/20/2012
    I've been using this daily for over a month. Could not be any easier to install. Visually it's a remarkable difference for a modest investment. I don't overdo the processing and keep it at the first level at 100%. The Mitsu HC6500 projector always looked great, but this is a noticable improvement in HD detail. Most noticiabl is with routine Comcast HD cable. A few flickering (black screen) hiccups on some Blu Ray DVDs (only with BD and just a few) as if it's a backlog of data processing delay, but very infrequent. One hiccup lasted with a black screen. I unplugged the Darbee power supply, waited 30 seconds, plugged it back in and all was fine. Hasn't happened since. Simple reboot.
    RICHARD -- marietta, GA   9/17/2012
    Works great! Sharpens and enhances the contrast on edges without artifacts (if settings is kept to reasonable levels). It in installed in my Home Theater. JVC Projector - 126" screen - Mainly Blu-rays and DVD. Some TV.
    PAUL -- bolingbrook, IL   9/10/2012
    Perhaps 4.5 stars would be a better rating. Ease of use and colors seem to improve. Very economical, appears to look as good as $1000+ video processor. Great value. Would recommend.
