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.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000

 

The extra-quiet fan is great

Brightness level is not the best

The price is low for a high contrast.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 review

 

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

Pictures very pleasing overall ; Flexible optics ; Runs very quietly

Disappointing upscaling ; No screen-triggering

Good value and great with HD and NTSC DVDs, but there are a couple of standard-definition niggles

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

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.

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 review

 

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

Sanyo PLV-Z3000

 

An extremely impressive entry from Sanyo that, like many rivals, suffers at the hands of the InFocus IN80

Great specification ; exceptional motion handling ; punchy, detailed pictures ; extremely flexible and easy to use

Some stepping in standard-def edges ; some rivals offer greater fine detail recovery

Sanyo PLV-Z3000 LCD projector review

 

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.

The Z3000 has more options than many more expensive projectors. Its colours aren't the most vivid we've seen, but were generally pleased by its intense blacks and balanced colour. It's relatively expensive, though, and we recommend
