Summary: I had bought 5 years ago on ebay a xv-z9000 projector and the bulb life was getting short. A new bulb is around 275.00 so when saw the xv-z1200 for 450.00 that came with a new bulb i jumped on it. It works great the picture is great. So in a few years i will do it allover .
Summary: Personal Experience I've read that the screen door effect can be an issue with this projector. Can anyone give me some recomendations so I can set it up right? How far do I need to be from the screen? Do filters help? Problems My XV-Z12000U is set to arrive tomorrow.
Summary: Personal Experience Installed 2/04 16' to a 100" Stewart Greyhawk and now have 1140 Hrs on bulb and still the best I've seen. Wouldn't change a thing, every one that sees it is blown away and two have bought the same after watching it. Problems The cooling fan can be a little noisy at times.
Summary: Personal Experience I've used this projector with a 0.6ND filter and Wow it looks like a CRT projector. I have clocked up about 120 hours and it freaks me out how good this is. If you want the blackest of blacks use this combination.
Summary: Personal Experience We have sold 4 of these projectors and many of the preceding units Z10000 and Z9000 There is no doubt regards the image quality or the performance out of the box. Also apparent is the improvement over the last model although that was also a very good projector.
Summary: Personal Experience I have installed three of these projectors since they came out and was unhappy with all of the installations results. Problems I was content with the image until I tried to ISF the image and was unable to achieve half of the black levels that were obtainable on other...
Summary: Personal Experience This is the absolute best value for an unbeatable combination that can be had for $7K or less! It has the best contrast and color wheel that is unbelieveable. Regular TV really looks as good if not better than on my Sony 42" Plasma TV!
