Some might know how much I and others are opposed to this device and especially the cost of purchasing one...........and now I tend to leave the gushing of this device to other forums, but I have just read this statement about it from a well known reviewer and me and him have crossed swords over this many times, but I have to say this statement takes it to a different level.This was the statement made regarding the recent HD Guru review:Quote:" If you've already formed your own opinion of the product, then the reviewer's opinion probably doesn't matter much to you. However, a review like this can have a great influence on readers who haven't been able to test the product for themselves. If they were interested in it before, they're more likely to be turned off bothering with it because the reviewer told them that it wasn't necessary or worthwhile for Blu-ray viewing.It's fine that the reviewer has a different opinion of the product than I personally do, but his statement that it works best with low-resolution sources and not very well at all with Blu-ray is misleading and potentially factually inaccurate. Those of us who've used the Darblet extensively know that it has better results the better the quality of the source image. The Darblet enhances visibility of details in the source. A high-quality source like Blu-ray has a lot of details to enhance. A low-quality source like DVD or broadcast TV doesn't give the Darblet much to work it, and so the Darblet has little effect on those. This review states otherwise, and therefore misinforms readers who might have otherwise considered buying the product (or who will now buy it believing that it magically makes crummy TV broadcasts look like stunning high defintion, only to inevitably come away disappointed that it doesn't actually do that).Edited by Josh Z - Yesterday at 10:45 am "" Blu Ray Has A Lot Of Detail To Enhance " WTF......if that detail was supposed to be seen it would have been applied at the authoring stage, with 1080p Blu Ray you have all the information there is.
