don't say I didn't warn you if you get it and aren't satisfied...

the 30k is about 1/2 the native contrast of the Sony/Epson. respectable for a .65 DLP but i'm not using the 30K to watch Underworld Evolution.

My opinion is biased since I watch nearly everything in 3D now. For me a DLP is necessary for clean ghost-free 3D and I'll live for the time being with a slightly compromised black level (I say slightly compromised because the glasses in 3D do improve the perceived contrast).

If my majority of watching was in 2D I'd definitely take a close look at the new JVC projectors. From what I've read their 2D for the money is a good as it gets and the 3D is more than acceptable for most.

The reason I like the Mits 8000 so much in 3D is, I believe, due to its excellent CFI -- just enough to get rid of most of the motion blur and not so much that it adds that dreaded video look. The Sharp has better gamma for 3D and this is evident in the really tough "dark" movies like A Christmas Carol. This can be "fixed" with the Mits if you use a computer for playback and customize the gamma. If you could take the best features from the Sharp and Mits and add the JVC's contrast -- well, I guess I wouldn't have to look any further.

Hi all,


I'm rethinking my 3D PJ route... rather than replacing my JVC RS2 with a Sony 55, I'm thinking of keeping the RS2 for 2D and getting the sharp 30K for 3D (given the excellent 3D performance and low cost).


couple of questions:


* can the Sharp do RF as well as IR eyewear?
* How is the sharp on lag-time for gaming? (the JVC isn't very fast so wondering if the Sharp is faster even for 2D gaming)
* Does the sharp have horizontal lens-shift as well as vertical, or just vertical? I have a cut-out in my back wall so the projector can be in the closet behind me... but the hole is off-center horizontally by about a foot from the center of the screen.


Thanks!

1080p and lossless audio. EVERY BD should have them both.

The Sharp works fine with the Optoma RF transmitter, the easiest hook up is using the IR receiver on the Optoma although once you get a hold of the Sharp G20 IR glasses, you may never want to use another set of 3D glasses again. The G30's are smaller and equally good for kids and adults with smaller faces.

lag time is similar to the JVC, ~ 70-80 ms if I recall so it's not the most optimal for hardcore gamers. I'm a casual player, mainly fighting games (Soul Calibur, Tekken, Dead or Alive) and it's fine for that game play.

There is plenty of H and V shift, that scenario wouldn't be a problem.

The main issue is finding one, they've pretty much disappeared off the internet / forums. I think most who bought them did not resell.

Yes, and whose fault is that?

And "why" are you replacing it? And what's your asking price? (pm if needed). Thanks!

FWIW, Amazon still shows them available new.

http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-XV-Z3000.../dp/B007RFCGLM

However, for $3700 there are probably better choices. However, perhaps not for 3D...

Still waiting to see what new 4K models become available late this year.

Bottom line is that there will always be something better in the pipeline. I let go of "perfect" long ago. The Z30K is a jack of all trades, ace of none (except 3D)...we still really enjoy the picture and the low cost of operation.
