Sharp XV-Z2000

 

Speaking of the remote, it's identical to the one included with the flagship XV-Z12000--except that instead of being fully backlit, it merely has glow-in-the-dark buttons. We liked how its sleek form fit in the hand, and we found its button array...

Relatively inexpensive; HDTV resolution using HD2+ chipset; independent memory per input; extremely bright; electronic zoom and focus.

No 2:3 pull-down in the video processing; so-so color decoding; video noise in darker areas; no 1080i via DVI input.

Sharp's XV-Z2000 budget HDTV DLP projector leaves a little bit to be desired in overall performance, but the price can't be beat.
