Sanyo PLV-Z4000

 

Let's get one thing straight up front. Regardless of what's different, and what's not, this Z4000 absolutely puts a better image on the screen than the Z3000 we reviewed when it came out

Good color accuracy post calibration in "best" mode (extremely minor yellow push) ; Rich, dynamic image in "brightest" mode, with extremely good picture quality, for a brightest mode ; Excellent shadow detail performance ; Black level performance...

More difficult to calibrate than most, and lacks separate color gain and offset for grayscale calibration ; Slight yellow/green push, noticeable on skin tones, may be correctable with adjustments in the Color Management section ; While black levels are...

The PLV-Z4000 gets an award. Sanyo may have improved only little things, but the result was a better projector at a slightly lower price - more value. I considered at length our Hot Product Award, but, sports fan that I am, even with my points about...

SANYO PLV-Z4000 LCD Projector Reviewed

 

Few companies offer the level of performance, in terms of resolution, color, contrast, brightness and daily livability for the price than Sanyo and their PLV-Z4000 LCD Projector continues the tradition. Retailing for less than its counterparts the...

The PLV-Z4000 has a 1080p resolution and can accept 24p sources ; This 120Hz projector offers either a Smooth mode or a 5:5 pulldown mode for film sources ; Multiple lamp modes allow you to tailor the projector's light output to suit your viewing...

The setup menu only offers global RGB controls, as opposed to high and low settings, to adjust white balance ; The PLV-Z4000 lacks a 12-volt trigger ; The zoom, focus and lens-shift controls are manual, not motorized

The PLV-Z4000 has an MSRP of $2,495, but it is actually available for under $2,000 through legitimate outlets. That makes it an excellent value in the world of 1080p projection, yet it does not skimp on features to achieve that price point. This SANYO...

Sanyo's breadbin-style projector update squeezes more quality from its 3LCD chipset for less cash

Useful optical lens shift ; appealing film-like image resolution ; very quiet fan

Unrealistic colours ; yellow tint ; hardly improves on PLV-Z3000

Sanyo PLV-Z4000

 

This LCD projector isn't much of an upgrade from its predecessor and be prepared for some tweaking.

The Z4000’s connections live up to today’s projection standards. Most significantly, you get two HDMIs for receiving digital HD sources. But there are also notably a couple of component video inputs, and a D-Sub PC port. A 12V trigger output is perhaps...

Sanyo PLV-Z4000 review

 

Sanyo's PLV-Z4000 looks exactly its predecessor, the Z3000, and it's just as ugly. Like its predecessor, it has plenty of features, including motion-smoothing frame interpolation, lens shift and even a sliding door to protect the lens, rather than an...

This ugly projector doesn’t quite make it to the top of the class, but it has plenty of features and good image quality.

With a fresh rate twice that of some standard home projectors, the Sanyo PLV-Z4000 is adept at displaying the fast action sequences so often a feature of Hollywood action movies. The PLV-Z4000 had a contrast ratio of 65000:1 and displays full 1080p...
