Sharp XV-Z12000 MARK II DLP Projector

 

Way back in our July 2004 issue, we reviewed this projector's predecessor, which wasn't known as the MARK I. We liked the XV-Z12000's performance so much, we gave it our 2005 RAVE Award for Best Overall Projector. Just a few months shy of two years...

But the Z10000 didn't sail away for some time. I put it through more than 300 hours of testing and daily use. The only negatives—if you don't count the pungent odor it emitted while operating, which disappeared after about 100 hours' use—were...
