The Sharp XVZ-17,000 is a new 1080p active shutter glass 3D DLP projector demonstrated by Sharp at Cedia 2010. The unit has been uniformly reported as projecting a bright, punchy, 3D image. It is rated by Sharp as putting out 16,000 lumens and has an On/Off CR of 30,000 to 1. MSRP is $4999. The projector includes a built in emitter and 2 pairs of glasses. Sharp is just starting to ship these and we are very fortunate to receive units from the first batch. These are likely to be in short supply for some time. Several sold within minutes of me mentioning their availability for immediate shipment in another thread. We have only two left.

If interested, please give me or any member of our sales team a call. You won't be disappointed. Thank you for supporting the AVS forum.

This one might be worth a look. Especially for 3D.

Yes it has 16000 lumens. You have to watch it with glasses at all times including 2D because the 16000 lumens will leave you blind if you dont wear them

Correction, its only 1600 lumens. I guess you dont have to wear the glasses with 2D

We have sold quite a few of these and several receiving them from us have posted mini reviews. We have exactly one left in stock. It is a very fine 3D projector but with rather stringent non flexible mounting requirements. It favors 3D performance over 2D performance. If ones viewing is primarily 2D I would look to other choices. But with a lot of 3D viewing, it is a great choice as its 2D performance is quite acceptasble but better 2D performance is available for the same or near price points.

I have a Mitsubishi HD1000 that has served me well for the past 5 years or so, but I have been thinking about upgrading. Just got a groupon deal for this projector for $1499 or $1599 with a 106 inch screen (mine is 92 now). You guys think this is a good projector and a good price? I have also been eyeballing the Epson 3010 or 5010. The 3010 is about the same price, but the 5010 is definitely a lot more of an investment and I would have to hold off for a while. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Coloradochip,

I'm in the same boat ... I missed the hhgregg deal on the epson 3020 this week at 1368 ... I'm looking at this deal along with the ones on the newegg sale.

the post above about not being the best at 2d kind of scares me and a post on Amazon about problems with Directv's 3d ppv service .... man there is never an easy choice!!

I had this projector for a while and it was great for 3D but 2D was just adequate. The cool thing with the Sharp is that you can switch the glasses and watch the movie in 2D while others are still watching in 3D. I don't know what was going on with Directv, but anytime I would watch 3D that wasn't live it would continue to reverse the polarity on the 3D image. Bottom line, there are far better options these days that make this a no deal.
