Home Theater Projector Reviews: Sharp XV-Z20000 1080p DLP Projector: Summary, Pros, Cons

Is the Sharp XV-Z20000 worth its (relatively) high price?

I certainly believe that the Sharp XV-Z20000 will have a significant following. The combination of superb image quality, exceptionally sharp image, and extensive controls and adjustment capability are worth it.

One could easily argue, for example that the extra sharpness of the Sharp (sorry – unavoidable pun), more inputs, support of anamorphic lenses, and greater control flexibility, make it worth the extra cost, when compared to the JVC RS1, which is the projector to beat. In fact, I consider that such an interesting face-off, that, as mentioned, I’ll be publishing that direct comparison article shortly.

I suspect that Sharp will be very successful with XV-Z20000, and one of the reasons, is that I believe that the higher quality “local” home theater dealers will see it as an excellent choice for many clients and environments, and has all the bells and whistles to maximize its performance in different settings.
