Sharp staged a beautiful demo of their new Z17000 3-D projector at CES in January. Now we've had a chance to road test it...
For those anxious to get full HD 1080p resolution 3D into their home theaters, the SharpVision XV-Z17000 is here, and it is the only choice under $5,000. Our Z17000 review has just been posted.
This is a fascinating projector that does extremely well in 3D. But it is not quite as competitive with conventional 2D display. So the value proposition is highly dependent upon how important 3D is to you.
If you've been waiting for 1080p 3-D to get down under $5,000, read through this review. At the end there is a comparison with the less expensive Sony VWPRO1, which is not 3-D enabled. That discussion will help you focus on the issues that are most important to you.
