Sharp XV-Z17000 3D 1080p DLP Video Projector - Product Review

About.com
9 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Setting up and using the Sharp XV-Z17000 easy, especially. The XV-Z17000 offers several image shift and image rotation settings that provide very flexible projector-to-screen positioning. The XV-Z17000 performs very well in either 2D or 3D mode, with very good contrast, color, and detail. The Sharp XV-Z17000 definitely lives up to its end of the bargain in terms of projecting a 3D image that was bright enough and that the 3D glasses could correctly align to each eye.

Sharp XV-Z17000 3D DLP Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
21 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Many of us here at Home Theater are big on 3D, but a lot of front-projection fans have been holding off. Until recently, their only options in the $5,000 3D projector market were two identical JVC models (sold either through that company’s pro or consumer distribution channels).

Review: Sharp XV-Z17000 3D DLP projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
16 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Sharp was once king of the $10,000 projector class, a class now nearly disappeared. With the 3D era under way, it returns to the game with this $4,995 offering, only to find the market far more competitive than before. Most notable is the $500-cheaper JVC DLA-X3, the baby brother of the X7 model I reviewed in the April/May issue.

Sharp XV-Z17000 Projector Review

Projector reviews
5 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Click to enlarge. SO close This Sharp XV-Z17000 is our first “mid-priced” 3D home theater projector that we’ve had a chance to review. Up until now, we’ve looked at generally low cost 720p projectors that are 3D capable, and we plan to review the first of the boxes that will give most of those projectors compatibility with Blu-ray 3D discs. We also tackled the $15K LG CF3D, and we have the $12K JVC RS60 here as well.
  • Pros: Really good “out of the box” picture quality, It only gets better with calibration – excellent skin tones, 2D black level performance is very good – a typical ultra high contrst projector, Image has very good sharpness – razor sharp in the center, although some softness in the corners., Very good 3D compatibility, Projector lamp can be changed without unmounting the projector (door is on the front, accessible when the lens cover is protecting the lens (and killing pow...

Expert Review

AVHub
7 January 2012
  • Excerpt: That puts it a little towards the ‘short throw’ category of projectors. I have a 1.5-metre-long rail for my ceiling mount, and this amount of adjustment has comfortably accommodated dozens of projectors for my projection screen. This one also worked, but right at the most extreme forward position (so that it was pretty much above my head when sitting in my favoured viewing seat) with the picture wound down to the minimum possible size.

Trusted Reviews
5 September 2011
  • Summary: Don’t be fooled by its dour looks and uninspiring spec - inside the Sharp XV-Z17000 beats a heart of pure 3D gold.
  • Pros: 3D images suffer no crosstalk or flicker, Extremely detailed 2D and 3D, Glasses are comfortable and effective
  • Cons: 2D contrast could be better, Some judder with 3D, It runs a little noisily in 3D-friendly lamp modes

Sharp XV-Z17000 review

Home Cinema Choice
13 June 2011
  • Excerpt: When asked by Sharp if we wanted to audition its 3D projector, we weren’t about to say no, even though the machine hasn’t yet been confirmed for a UK release. Oddly, Sharp is prevaricating about whether there’s a market for a 3D PJ with a retail price of around £4,000. But AV retailers’ shelves aren’t exactly heaving with such items. There’s only Sony’s VPL-VW90ES (£5,400) and a trio of JVC models, ranging in price from £3,500 to £9,500. And that’s currently it.
