While Sanyo's PLV-Z2000 1080p projector does have some performance shortcomings, it's nonetheless a very good value.

Accurate color decoding; independent memory per input; comprehensive connectivity; includes both horizontal and vertical lens shift.

Primary and secondary color accuracy is way off, particularly red and green.

Leave it Sanyo to come up with a novel way to ensure that a projector's lens cap can never be accidentally lost. Perhaps taking its cue from late 1960's muscle car design (the 1967 Camaro SS comes to mind), its PLV-Z2000 features a motorized sliding...

The Sanyo PLV-Z2000 is a big box that delivers an even bigger picture. Images were crisp, set-up was easy and the gaming and TV viewing fantastic. Despite the size issue, it is one of the best performing projectors on the market under $2500.
