Product Description

The Darblet is a hardware driven HDMI video enhancer. It uses Darbee Visual Presence Technology to brighten, sharpen, and clarify video and images, bringing incredible detail to your TV from any video source. Beyond HD It is currently believed that 1080p with deep color is the best level of video quality available to most home users. Conventional wisdom dictates that quality won't improve without increasing resolution or improving other specs like contrast ratio and color depth. 4k is promising to do just that, but it is an expensive solution at best. The Darblet uses patented technology to go beyond conventional graphics technology by processing images and video the same way the human brain does. This adds new levels of detail, textures, and colors not visible before, essentially transforming your entertainment experience. The Darblet takes full advantage of the latest HDMI features, meaning the Darblet is fully compatible with Deep Color and 3D. Easy Installation Not only is the Darblet affordable, it's also a very simple solution to upgrading your video quality. Other upgrades involve changing your TV and/or your source (like your DVD player). The Darblet goes between your source and your display. All you need is the Darblet and one additional HDMI cable. The Darblet is completely Plug-n-Play, you don't need to install any drivers or software. There are simple controls to set up the Darblet according to your personal preferences. Darbee Remote Adjustable Enhancement The level of enhancement (Darbee effect) you get from the Darblet can be adjusted in 10% increments, which means you can get just the right amount of enhancement for any application. You can also choose from 3 different presets: Hi Def, Gaming, and Full Pop. Just use the included remote or the buttons on the device itself to make any adjustments.

I will revise this review to be a bit more formal when I have time. I did want to at least get my general impression of this device out there as soon as possible.

In short, the Darblet is revelutionary in my mind. This device works in the following way. It takes a video and basically adds depth by adding defintion and contrast. The best way to describe the effect is to say that it makes images look more "in focus" and it also adds contrast for increased depth. There are multiple settings and how you adjust them is quite important. Of the three setting modes, you have Full Pop, Game, and HD mode. Each can be set from 0-100. I and most others find that HD is really the best mode by far. And setting it between 40 and 80 will yield the best results without introducing anything really in the way of artifacts. It has zero effect on colors and will not force you to recalibrate your set. It simply takes a good picture and makes it better.

Do not listen anyone that says this is a simple sharpening tool. It is nothing of the sort. In short, this little gem is worth every cent I paid for it. You basically set it and forget it. So do not fret about the sorry remote or looks of the unit itself for that matter. It is small enough that you should be able to hide it quite easily. It should be installed at the end of your video chain(closest to the TV). All of my inputs run into my AVR and then from there I go into the Darblet and finally on to the TV.

I use this in conjunction with my Onkyo 818, which has superb upscaling and edge enhancement capabilities. Together they feed my Panasonic 65VT50 which in turn puts out one of the most breathtaking pictures I have laid my eyes on. And this is coming from a previous Kuro 9G Elite owner. If you are a videophile and truly understand what makes up a great picture, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for your time

I purchased the Darbee after reading all the glowing reviews. Yes, the hardware is very cheap as everyone pointed out. But this is not why I am rating this device 3 stars only. The flimsy hardware and remote is not an issue at all actually. The biggest issue with this device is the HDMI handshake bugs. I tested this out with both my 3D plasma, 3D projector, Xbox 360, WDTV, Samsung C6900, and Oppo 95. It is important to note that the Darbee was not connected via a receiver, but directly to HDMI 1.4 approved display devices (thus eliminating a possible compatibility issue).

When switching devices, or when not having the unit powered on for awhile, I would have to disconnect the power cable and reconnect to establish a video signal. This was a dealbreaker to begin with. The Oppo would power on, show a logo page, then go blank. I suspect this was due to the 24p mode that was trying to be enabled whilst also using the Darbee in the same video chain. I also have a Samsung C6900 bluray player that I also tried to connect; the same issue happened but instead of showing a blank screen I would see magenta.

The Xbox would require the Darbee to be power cycled each time the console was turned on. This was another dealbreaker. However, the device did show an image pop during gaming. With Halo 4, the graphics seemed smoother. But the improved quality that was perceived was minor at best. After awhile, the edge enhancements I noticed seemed to be more like image noise in the background. I could take it or leave with these settings on.

The only device that did not have any issues at all was the WDTV. I played all 1080p24 content on both my TV and projector. Dark Knight Rises was a supreme example of added sharpening.

I bought this after reading review after review (on the home theater forums). I can honestly say that I was very sceptical of what this tiny litle box would do to my picture. I have a JVC RS45 projector shooting to a 124" wide Cinemascope screen, about 17' from the projector, in a dedicated theater. The bluray images are being processed through a DVDO DUO as well, so I was seeing a fantastic picture before.

Now after installing this little gem right after the DVDO processor, I grabbed a bluray (Hunger Games) and went to a scene where I was able to pause a clear shot of an actors face. Turned the DARBEE on, raised it to 55% and toggled between ON/OFF.

WOW! The effect was crazy. Some people attribute the effect as if a film is cleaned off the screen. I see that AND an increased depth in all areas where there is contrast.

The Hunger Games is a little noisey so I ended up liking the DARBEE effect more at 50% for this movie. But upon throwing in a very clean movie, Avengers....The DARBEE level was raised to 65% without any noticable background specks and HOLY MOLY does it improve an already stellar image for this film.

I am very pleased with this device. To think of all the $$$ I have spent on equipment to get the best possible picture for the money...this dude is worth 4x what I paid.

Now I would think that a normal sized screen (50" diag) might not be as dramatic a difference, but believe me.. at theater sized screens (mine is approzimately 135" diag) IT IS A GAME CHANGER.
