Sharp XV-Z3000U DLP Home Theater Projector Review

The more I watched it, the more I was impressed with the blacks. The XV-Z3000 manages inky blacks that rival more expensive projectors using the Darkchip3 DLP. The XV-Z3000 overall has the best image quality (with the possible exception of the Samsung SP-H710AE, which doesn’t come close in terms of black levels) of any of the Darkchip2 DLP projectors I have reviewed.

As a result we are pleased to give the XV-Z3000 our Hot Product Award, for exceptional price performance, tied to overall image quality, and best of class sharpness of image.
