    *REVIEW OF DARBEE 5100CIE rack-mountable unit.*

    I have been a long-time user of the Darbee Darblet and have always been very impressed by the results I get using it in conjunction with my Epson 9200 PJ.

    The attraction for me of the 5100CIE version was the promise of the PhaseHD technology which is supposed to more or less eliminate all HDMI handshaking issues. The video processing offered by the 5100CIE is identical to that in the Darblett.

    One of the main benefits of the unit, for me, was the opportunity to eliminate these HDMI handshaking issues once and for all, and to have a much neater solution in my rack. The PhaseHD tech incorporated in the 5100CIE also allows for very long HDMI cable runs and while this is of no use to me right now, may be one day, so it is an added bonus.

    The 5100CIE is an attractive 1RU rack mounted unit and comes complete with rack mountings. As such, incorporating it into the rack is a straightforward process. The unit weighs very little, runs cool and has no fans. The various status LEDs on the front can be dimmed, or turned off entirely, which might be important for those who have the unit visible in their HT.

    On the rear there are connections for power (from a supplied wall-wart style PSU), HDMI in and HDMI out and a USB port for possible future firmware updates etc. This latter is a benefit over the Darblett which has to be returned to the manufacturer for firmware updates.

    In use, the unit performs identically to the Darblett with regard to image processing. The menus are identical, other than an added menu option for dimming or switching off the LEDs, and the remote is identical other than being a cool black instead of white colour. The remote uses the same IR codes as the Darblett remote.

    As expected, the image looks identical to that offered through the Darblett but I am happy to report that my HDMI handshaking issues have now entirely disappeared. As such, for me, the 5100CIE has fulfilled its promise and is money well spent. It also looks very cool in the rack! :)

    I bought the 5100CIE from Allan at Ideal AV, which is also where I bought my Epson 9200, my Oppo 103, my Denon X5200W and my MK Sound S150 speakers. As always, Allan offers unbeatable customer service and the purchase of the 5100CIE was no exception to that. Thanks Al, as always.

    A very quick review on the Darbee 5100. What a brilliant piece of kit from Darbee. As a previous 5000 owner I’m very happy with the new unit as it fits nicely on my 19″ rack. I’ve not tested the HDMI handshaking functionality as of yet but I’m hoping that might solve a few problems I’m having.
