What I am selling: I’m selling my beloved home theater projector, the Sharp xv-z3000 with 80% lamp life left (currently it has under 500hrs). An excellent projector with unrivaled black levels in its league. It rivals the much more expensive Sharp xv-z12000 MKII. It is able to produce a very bright picture for daytime viewing. It is small and light and is good for tabletop and mounting alike.
Why I am selling: I am selling the unit because I simply do not have the space for after my recent move to grad school. I also need the cash because things are getting tight. I have owned 5 front projectors and this is by no means the most expensive but has certainly been my favorite.
What is included: I include the projector and the power cord. I DO NOT have the owner’s manual nor the remote control. The projector itself is in fine operational condition, with minor cosmetic defects. One of the legs are missing (see picture).
