Sharp XV-Z17000 3D 1080p DLP Video Projector - Product Review


Setting up and using the Sharp XV-Z17000 easy, especially. The XV-Z17000 offers several image shift and image rotation settings that provide very flexible projector-to-screen positioning. The XV-Z17000 performs very well in either 2D or 3D mode, with...

Sharp XV-Z17000 3D DLP Projector


Now more budget 3D choices are starting to appear. One of the first is the Sharp XV-Z17000, which was announced at CEDIA 2010 but finally came to market last spring. Sharp will have to aggressively price the XVZ-17000 if they hope to compete with the...

Sharp XV-Z17000


Don't be fooled by its dour looks and uninspiring spec - inside the Sharp XV-Z17000 beats a heart of pure 3D gold.

3D images suffer no crosstalk or flicker ; Extremely detailed 2D and 3D ; Glasses are comfortable and effective

2D contrast could be better ; Some judder with 3D ; It runs a little noisily in 3D-friendly lamp modes

The mid-range space of the projector market is getting seriously interesting right now. In their different ways JVC’s X3, Sony’s HW30ES and now Sharp’s Z17000 projectors all offer some serious quality for your money. In the Z17000’s case, that...

Sharp XV-Z17000 review


When asked by Sharp if we wanted to audition its 3D projector, we weren't about to say no, even though the machine hasn't yet been confirmed for a UK release. Oddly, Sharp is prevaricating about whether there's a market for a 3D PJ with a retail price...

Decent 2D and 3D performance; quiet; free of rainbow effect and little crosstalk

4:3 mode unavailable with HDMI-connected source; no optical keystone correction
