In the case of this XV-Z30000, as Mike noted, the CIE chart is a little off.  If you are having the projector fully calibrated, that would get adjusted.  We do not do that, so the color is a touch off.  Still, overall, color is very good. With our settings you should have color superior to almost all projectors “right out of the box” without adjustments, though probably not as good as some THX modes.
