Sanyo PLV-Z3000

 

The front projection category continues to grow and become more affordable to the masses. These days you can get a decent 1080p front projector for cheaper than most 60-inch plasma TVs. Of course, you do have the additional cost of a screen to factor...

Accurate color decoding; solid connectivity; well-rounded feature package with horizontal and vertical lens shift

Inaccurate primary colors bring down the overall color fidelity; not very bright

Sanyo's affordable 1080p front projector has its share of flaws, but still represents a good value in its category.

Sanyo has long been a big player in the business projector market. However, while it has a serious presence in home projectors in many markets, it has remained relatively low key for U.S. consumers. This is especially true when you compare it with...

The Sanyo also has small access holes and a manual air blower for clearing dust particles that might fall on the imaging chips and cause shadows on the screen. This problem is rare in my experience, but the Sanyo is the only one of these projectors...

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 Review

 

Not only does this projector offer improved contrast over last year's popular Z2000, but the big news is that it is the first home theater projector under $10,000 to offer 5:5 pulldown.

The extra-quiet fan is great

Brightness level is not the best

The price is low for a high contrast.

Keenly priced, frill-free LCD lightbox that excels with HD

Pictures very pleasing overall ; Flexible optics ; Runs very quietly

Disappointing upscaling ; No screen-triggering

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 projector review

 

One of the main reasons that home cinema projection hasn't really caught on in the UK is because of the products' huge size. Sanyo's latest PLV-Z3000 doesn't solve that problem - it's big and it's ugly - but you do at least get plenty of...

Great contrast, smooth Blu-ray playback, easy set-up, quiet operation

Lacklustre colours, bulky design

Sharp, smooth and contrast-heavy HD images make this a great option for anyone wanting to take advantage of Blu-ray disc's ability to go large

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 LCD Projector

 

It ain't pretty but for under £2,000 the Full HD PLV-Z3000 projector looks like a decent buy.

Sanyo has also tried to make a big deal out of the fact that - so far as we know - the Z3000 is the first projector to carry a 5:5 pull-down mode to deliver a more natural, fluid image from 60Hz inputs. Which would be great if the UK actually had all...

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 review

 

The heavy-duty grey chassis of Sanyo's PLV-Z3000 LCD projector is ugly but clearly built to last. Instead of an easily-lost detachable lens cap, the PLV-Z3000's lens is hidden behind a sliding shutter, which opens automatically when the projector is...

A reasonably priced projector with typically good LCD image quality, but its colours aren't quite as good as the very best LCD or DLP models.

It might look like an ugly duckling, but this Sanyo packs some serious specs – and a cracking picture

Can count itself hard done by to miss out on the full complement of stars - a strong four-star projector
