Sanyo PLV-Z2

 

In a nutshell, the Z2 is a very well laid out projector, with a solid feature set, and it also sports vertical and horizontal keystone adjustment, for drastically simplified setup, or installation

But the real value in the Z2 LCD projector is picture performance, It just provides a beautiful image, rivaling far more expensive projectors

Highly Rated!

Consumer review by:

An LCD home projector refined with state of the art tech.

 

This projector has a superb spec at any price. The star feature is the DVI port which pulls incredible colour and detail from new DVI or HDMI equipped DVD players - it's worth upgrading for this alone. The PLV-Z2's three-chip LCD design means you don't...

Digital video input ; beautifully smooth and detailed picture ; lens shift options

You need to keep brightness down to reduce fan noise
