When asked by Sharp if we wanted to audition its 3D projector, we weren't about to say no, even though the machine hasn't yet been confirmed for a UK release. Oddly, Sharp is prevaricating about whether there's a market for a 3D PJ with a retail price of...

3D remains a work in progress on this and most other affordable projectors when it comes to producing a bright image on a very big screen at a sensible price. But even there, the best of the 3D discs I watched were a treat, despite my reservations about...

Although we’d seen and enjoyed Sharp’s Z17000 at last year’s IFA show in Berlin, nothing - including the projector’s own spec sheet and appearance - could have prepared us for just how engaging its 3D pictures are. It’s not quite as assured in 2D...

The Sharp XV-Z17000 is a 3D Video Projector utilizing DLP technology. With its native 1920x1080 (1080p) native pixel resolution and 1,600 lumen output capability, the XV-Z17000 projects a bright, natural, looking image from both 3D and 2D source...

The new SharpVision XV-Z17000 is the first production-run 3D projector to make its way to our offices, and it is a sight to see. This 1080p DLP projector uses active-shutter glasses to display full 1080p 3D images from Blu-ray disc, broadcast, or PC...

The new Sharp XV-Z17000 3D DLP projector could very easily be mistaken for its 2D little brother, the XV-Z15000, which we looked at a couple of years ago. Slim and trim, the only major difference between the two is the 17000’s front panel, which...

I found it hard to love the XV-Z17000. With Blu-ray 3D, this projector looks spectacular and is one of the best going. The 3D image is bright and vibrant, something not said very often. Its 2D performance is far less impressive, easily outclassed by...

Since the Z17000 projector is our first 3D projector in its price range, it really is hard to determine how it will stack up to the competition, such as the similarly priced JVC RS40, the forthcoming Mitsubishi HC9000D, and so on. Well, despite the...

International Review By Hifitest.de on 100

Der XV-Z17000 von Sharp ist ein hervorragender 2D-Projektor, der die Latte in Sachen Schwarzwert und Maximalkontrast bei DLP-Beamern ganz weit nach oben legt. Die hervorragende Güte seiner Optik macht ihn zudem wunderbar scharf. Umso schöner, dass die...

International Review By Bestofmicro on 75

Après 5 années d'absence sur le marché de la vidéo-projection, Sharp a décidé de revenir par la grande porte avec un modèle DLP Full-HD compatible 3D, proposé au prix compétitif de 4490...

International Review By Ere Numérique on 75

Si les modèles que nous avons testés jusqu’à maintenant étaient plutôt encombrants, le Z17000 est quant à lui bien plus petit et plus léger. Cet avantage est indéniable puisqu'il pourra être facilement transportable et surtout trouvera sans mal sa...

International Review By Netzwelt on

Auf den ersten Blick verblüfft zunächst, wie klein und handlich der Sharp-Beamer aussieht: Der 3D-Projektor ist gerade mal zehn Zentimeter hoch und 40 Zentimeter breit. Auch sein Gewicht von 5,8 Kilogramm liegt unter dem vieler...

International Review By AudioVision on

Sharps kompakter XV-Z 17000 macht viel Spaß im 3D-Heimkino, da er weder störendes Flackern noch stressiges Übersprechen produziert. In den Punkten Kontrast, Lichtstärke und Bewegungsschärfe lässt er aber etliche Wünsche offen. Technische...
