Sharp XV-Z15000 Projector - Image Quality 7

Posted on June 9, 2009 by Art Feierman

All of the Sharp XV-Z15000 images below are from either Blu-ray or HDTV, with the exception of Lord of the Rings (standard DVD). Remember, by the time these Sharp XV-Z15000 projector images get to you through digital camera, software, browsers, and monitor, there are definite small color shifts, saturation differences, etc. The images are to support the commentary, but keep in mind the limitations when trying to compared images from the XV-Z15000 with other home theater projectors.

In reality, all projectors, including the XV-Z15000, always look better live than the images in our reviews.

(Please note, the Panasonic image above is a little blurry, must have bumped the tripod. Sorry! That shouldn't affect your ability to see the shadow details. -art)

Another very good image for observing shadow detail is this very dark scene from the first National Treasure film. The XV-Z15000 does do a good job of revealing details, especially if you look to the top right, or the left center.

XV-Z15000 - Overall Color & Picture Quality

Previously, I really liked the overall picture quality of the Optoma HD8200, recently reviewed. It was one of the things that definitely factored into my decision to award the Optoma with one of our Hot Product awards. (I was really on the fence, it was a tough call.)

Well, I'm even more pleased with this Sharp's color handling and overall picture. I suspect that, had I reviewed the Sharp first, it would have still won its Hot Product award, but likely would not have given the Optoma one. There is no doubt in my mind, that given a choice, I personally would choose this Sharp projector over the Optoma.
