Summary: Personal Experience A bought this second hand for a low price in Sweden and despite it's age it is still a great performer in picture quality. No rainbow effects and good contrast. It works best in a dark cinema room. Setup is user friendly and menus are not hard to navigate. The short zoom range limits placing so carefully planning is a must. Compared to modern projectors it performs very well even with today standards but it is big and noisy.
Summary: Personal Experience I was able to pick this up as a referb for $500. This projector has been amazing. The black level detail is great. The screen correction guide was easy to use and made matching the image to our screen simple. Problems We do have some small orbs from dust that can only be seen on very dark content.
Summary: Personal Experience Has bought for $1500, and now I will not give to anybody because such good a little and they cost much more expensive. Short-focus, high contrast, shift of lenses... The Small minus - noise, but it is appreciable only on silent scenes.
Best product for the money. Next thing best of 1080p!!!

Summary: Friends lead me to this product. I was not about to spend over $2000 so I found this for 1/2 the value. Much better than Infocus 4805 screenplay which would be a great projector for even a lessor budget ($400-500). Will wait on 1080p but I am excited because I was told it is much better than xv-3000. For the money I am very pleased with xv-3000.
Summary: Personal Experience Incredible contrast. I chose this projector because of the ability to go really big, up to 300 in. I have a 12ft by 8 foot wall screen and the picture is great. I have owned it now for 12 months and will never go back to the tubes.
Summary: Personal Experience This is my second projector, the other one was a Panasonic PT-AE700U, and as I'm writing this, I honestly feel that the XV-Z3000 is the best bang-for-the-buck. It even outclasses more expensive projectors. It has plenty of lumens, great blacks, great contrast, balanced colors and the image is very sharp. You can't go wrong with this one. Highly recommended!
Summary: Personal Experience This projector is incredible. When I was investigating what to buy, this was not ny first choice. However, I was attracted to it because of the short throw ratio. The projector I wanted to buy was the IN76. With it, I would have had a maximum picture of around 97 inches. With the Sharp, my picture is 128 inches. Everyone who views the picture cannot believe how good it is. It is truly as good as being in the theatre.
Summary: Personal Experience Real easy to set up, and the keystone is realy user frendly. Great remote and short cut for image settings are usefull. Must have for a great home theater and gaming room. A bit big, but i think its a good sign of quality! Problems no problem, for now.
