Sharp XV-Z17000 Projector Review
Sharp XV-Z17000 Black Levels and 3D
Right off the bat, the Sharp’s black level performance is very good as a 2D projector. So, what about 3D? The answer is simple: Don’t even worry about it.

You are starting with inherently really good blacks. But, in 3D almost certainly, your image will be underpowered. That will make your blacks much blacker still. Bottom line, don’t worry about black level performance in general with the XV-Z17000 projector, and definitely not in 3D.
XV-Z17000 Color Management
The Sharp has minimal control for balancing grayscale, but does have a color management system two two CMS areas. You can select colors off the image, or use the provided color chart, then tune the saturation hue, etc. We normally do not calibrate individual colors so we didn’t work with it. It does look like a very reasonable setup.
