A new Z30K seems unavailable at the moment (for<$3K anyway). Even then, no one has posted about buying one in quite a while.
I can not recall another product with such an interesting price history. MSRP of $5K, then available for $1800, then slowly rising to $3K????
FWIW, we are still enjoying ours.
Zombie, with all of your new toys, are you still watching the Sharp?
he likely paid the same price we did and is looking for a high mark up since he sees the guy selling it @ $7999 who previously sold a ton under 3K.
funny you should ask, I had the 30K burning the entire day yesterday. We had some guests over and all the kids wanted to watch Turbo 3D and The Croods 3D, both great fun movies. The G30 glasses were a hit with the kids, I bought a few more pair. Ages were 6-11. kids were going nuts since both movies have intense 3D. it was razor sharp and flawless as usual.. no chance of x-talk.
an interesting observation since I've been testing 3D on the Sony 600 and 1000 and the JVC RS57. If I tilt or move the glasses on those 3 projectors it's not hard to find x-talk. It's like there is a sweet spot to keep 3D to a minimum. With the 30K and G20 / G30 glasses, it doesn't really matter angle you are sitting at, I can't force any kind of x-talk with this projector + those glasses.
then after everyone went home, things didn't go as well. I decided to watch a movie I've had for a while, 'The Wolverine 3D'. There goes 2 hours of my life I won't get back. I am a sucker for the X-men series and feel compelled to watch all of these but this one didn't do it for me. the end scene with old guy in the giant robot was ridiculous (sorry for the spoiler, you will thank me later...
I basically watched it to see what happens at the very end so I can catch a lead into the next X-men movie. 3D was excellent and it was very sharp, I didn't even have the darbee hooked up... but it didn't help this story. The Wolverine / Pheonix stuff is getting old, they needed to end it in this movie and find something else for him to be tortured about...
