The effect is impressive.  In Medal of Honor: Warfighter the [Cobalt] works a minor miracle in some scenes…the [Cobalt] manages to accentuate details on the rock’s surface to the point of it looking like higher-resolution textures are in play...

David Bierton,


Like its older brother the Darblet, the Cobalt performs really sophisticated image processing, not just providing overall sharpening but also separating out foreground images from background ones to try to apply enhancements where they are needed most. The result is a clear sharp picture that's remarkably free from artifacts.

Easy to fine tune.  Simple to use.  Superb picture improvement.

We detected no perceivable delay between a button press and the resultant action on-screen.

David Bierton,


[T]his can actually benefit players who play online.  With Trine 2 on PS3, the [Cobalt] is not only able to visibly sharpen up the picture but also bring the intricacies of the game’s artwork further to the surface – foliage and textures are simply cleaner and clearer than they were before.  At high settings (around 70 per cent and higher) characters and other objects appear clearer from a distance.

David Bierton,


That, of course, is a lot better gaming experience, and I’ve got to tell you… the images just absolutely pop out.
