Excerpt: But visualize the operation of a single-chip DLP and the mind reels: hundreds of thousands of tiny mirrors, each working its little tail off as it flashes on and off at incredible speeds, all in perfect (one hopes) synchrony with a rapidly rotating color wheel. The flashing mirrors provide the shades of gray from black to white, and filters on a segmented wheel provide the color.
Conclusion: The new Sharp XV-Z10000U once again sets the benchmark for high-performance DLP projectors as did its predecessor. The excellent black level performance and high contrast ratio makes this projector difficult to beat. The color accuracy was phenomenal, far better than many DLP projectors we've seen. Furthermore, the scan rate conversion from 1080i or 480i/p to the native 720p did an incredible job from what we saw on our 100" Stewart FireHawk screen.
