I do not. What I have posted before is from Plasmacity. Here is the comment they made regarding some of the top 720p out there. It compares the XV-Z3000 instead of the VP4001, so take that into consideration, but it is the closest I guess to side-by-side comparisons.:
SHARP XVZ12000 MK2
SharpVision XV-Z12000 MARK II Whisper-quiet, 7000:1 contrast ratio and 1000 ANSI Lumens. Using the DC3 DLP chip, and a 7-segment 5x color wheel improve the picture quality to new levels. The Mark II was a real let down. Sharp missed the boat with this projector. The older 12000 was much better projector in our minds.
PE8720 Cinema Projector 10,000:1 CONTRAST Native WXGA 16:9 720P resolution (1280x 720) BenQ is transforming home cinema with the new HD3 DarkChip DMD-Chip from Texas Instruments. Much improved over the 8700 but fall short of the SharpVision XV-Z12000 MARK II capabilities. This is one of the best deals out there versus the Sharp XV-Z12000 MARK II which is overpriced in the market. Now priced under $3600.00
SharpVision XV-Z12000 now half the price. Best projector under 4K we've seen period. This projector won every shootout in EVERY magazine and it simply incredible. They are going fast. They have no weakness now that they are half the price. Picture quality is equal to the Benq 8720 but the extra's like Reliability, Build Quality, setup and adjustments is Sharp's by a mile.
WOW! This was our first impression. Almost half the price of its big brother and picture quality equal to the previous generation XV-Z12000
. See the amazing review from Projector Central. Also check out the Sharp DT500 below which is basically the same projector for even less money.
THIS PROJECTOR IS IDENTICAL TO THE AMAZING SHARP XV-Z3000 MINUS THE DUAL IRIS. If you want the best projector under $2K this is it. True black levels, amazing contrast and just as sharp as the Z4 or any of the projectors above.
