I would tend to agree. As a owner of a DVDO edge (found it second hand for a great price) I can tell you that the improvement in PQ was not what I expected. I have noticed blacker blacks which makes the picture more 3 dimensional but thats about it. What it has done for me is more in my head than reality. It has given me the comfort of knowing that short of replacing everything in my home theater with the latest and greatest I am getting the best possible PQ out of my system. That being said the difference between processor on and processor off is negligable. If I had not got such a good deal I would not have bought it.For the cost of the processor, No. There would be benefits but given the price of the good Processors that use the Silicon Optix Realta chip or Raon its not really going to improve that much.
