Projector reviews
22 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The XV-Z30000 doesn’t blow me away, rather I’m thinking “solid performance”  The really good, but not truly exceptional black levels are complemented by much better than most dark shadow detail.  The result is a projector that is capable of reproducing good dark scenes, without feeling flat and “grayed out.
  • Pros: A just above average measured lumens in “best” mode, is enough for standard screens up to 110″ or a bit larger, no problem, for movie viewing in best mode. (In a proper darkened environment, of course), Very good overall color, and also skin tones, DLP “look and feel”, Especially good dark shadow detail, I never saw a rainbow!  6 segment 5x color wheel! Outstanding!, Impressive 2:1 zoom lens, lens shift, all motorized, for placement flexibility, Blacks are ultra high ...

  • Summary: Sharp's XVZ-30000 is a worthy competitor for any other premium home theatre projector. Its 2D and 3D video quality is excellent, and the projector is only slightly let down by no 2D-3D conversion and no frame smoothing.
  • Pros: Excellent 2D and 3D video quality, Powered zoom for flexible setup, 2D setting on glasses to remove 3D effect
  • Cons: No 2D-3D conversion in the projector, No motion smoothing, fast-moving 3D can flicker
