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 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!
Summary: Personal Experience It was worth the wait for me. Gorgeous looking projector...awesome picture (5500:1). Love the remote settings particularly the three modes- High contrast, High brightness and Medium- at the push of a button on the remote. Also, like the FilmTone feature and others..
Summary: Personal Experience The colors/resolution/contrast on this unit are simply stunning, especially with HDTV/DVD material.Plus I am using a cheap white pull-down screen 100" displaying a 95" 16x9 image, my Stewart Firehawk 116" is on order, so things should only get Better, OH BOY!!
Summary: Personal Experience When I first saw the HDTV image on this projector I could not believe that it was coming from an under 8,000 dollar machine.I had all my friends and family over for the superbowl and almost two weeks later they are still talking about the TV.
